Configure & Order Palermo

CONFIGURE & ORDER

Palermo is known for its classical flair, its balmy Mediterranean coast, and its rich history. The Palermo retractable awning is a natural extension of that heritage, adding modern engineering to the millennia-old tradition of Italian awnings.

The Palermo's Qualicoat® powder-coated, non rusting 6063 aluminum frame has a minimalist, squared back bar, heavy duty commercial grade arms, and front bar. The frame appears lighter and smaller than it really is by slightly elevating the roller in the back. This also allows the pitch of the awning to be mounted in a very wide range, from 0° (completely flat) to 50° (steep).

The Palermo model is unusual in that it can be manufactured with a projection that is greater than or equal to the width. This is accomplished using a proprietary overlapping arm kit. In the price list below, all blue numbers are sizes that use the overlapping arm kit.

The Palermo can be covered in either solution-dyed acrylic or mesh fabric. Solution-dyed acrylic is a softly-textured, woven fabric made from man-made fibers that is known for its brilliant color, resiliency, and long life. RetractableAwnings.com has over 400 styles of solution-dyed acrylic fabrics from major American and European designers. Soltis is a mesh or "pin-prick" fabric, almost like a screen. Soltis mesh creates a light-filtering effect allowing you to see the sky; this can be an unusual design option. Note that Soltis mesh fabric does allow some water to penetrate through the "pin-prick" holes.

The Palermo can be fabricated up to 52 feet 6 inches wide using one piece of fabric and one motor. The extra-wide size combined with an install angle that can be as sharp as 50° means the Palermo can provide an eye-catching yet traditional way to control sunlight and glare both indoors and out for residential and commercial properties.
