Reasons To Buy Retractable Folding Lateral Arm Retractable Awnings From Retractableawnings.com®


All framework for all product types and models (Genova model excluded) is from Europe and is COMMERCIAL GRADE, HEAVY DUTY electrostatically powder coated non-rusting aluminum extrusions and has a 25-YEAR NON-PRORATED frame warranty – longest in the industry.


All assembly bolts and nuts on all product types and models are INOX non-rusting stainless steel and will not rust/corrode.


We use German Flexon® brand stainless steel non-rusting chains in our folding lateral arm awning arms that will never rust. Most competitors use one or two cables which will corrode (rust) and when they rust, the customer is required to replace the arms since the cables will snap thus losing tension in the arms. One cannot remove and replace the cables as all arms are made on special tensioning machines in either Europe or China (Europe only from Retractableawnings.com®).


We have several high quality folding lateral arm retractable awning models you can consider for your purchase. These models differ in design and projection but not in quality. We don’t have a low, medium and high quality – only high quality.
