Preparing Your Awnings for Heavy Snowfall in the Midwest with Unmatched Technology

Winter in the Midwest can bring heavy snowfall that can cause serious damage to your awnings. Preparing for this kind of weather is essential if you want to protect your home and business from costly repairs or replacements.

For example, installing weight sensors on your awning before the end of the snow season would enable you to deploy your awning without stress!

Meet the Mighty Snow of the Midwest

Throughout the winter, the Midwest region of the United States can be particularly vulnerable to heavy amounts of snowfall. This is due to its location between an area of warm and cold air masses, resulting in a variety of storm systems that bring varying levels of snow accumulation throughout December, January, and February.

The average annual snowfall in the Midwest region can range from 8-22 inches, and some states reportedly receive several more inches overall depending on the year.

This amount of snowfall can cause significant damage to outdoor awning systems if not properly monitored. That’s why it’s important to be prepared for the snow season by installing weight sensors on your awnings.

Thankfully, Sunesta’s revolutionary technology offers an easy solution for your favorite outdoor space.

An Awful Lot of Snow On Your Awning?

Weight sensors provide an accurate reading of the amount of weight that is resting on top of your awning. Thus, you can take preemptive action in order to avoid damages caused by excessive snow buildup.

What’s more, Sunesta’s retractable awnings can be retracted automatically!

As weight sensors can measure the exact amount of weight being applied to your awning, your Smart Control technology will enable you to retract the awning before the ongoing Midwestern snowfall pushes the boundaries of safety.

This way, you can deploy your Sunesta awning to block the harsh winter sun without worrying about potential costly damages.
