Modern Awnings Offer Many Functional Features

Modern AwningsModern awnings have certainly come a long way from their humble origins. Described as “woven mats” used to provide shade in ancient civilizations, awnings have been used for millennia by humankind as a source of comfort and relaxation.

Indeed, when you think about the word “awning” your mind’s eye might picture an image of a simple canopy providing shade for a door, window, deck, patio, or storefront. While modern awnings still provide this same functionality, newer technologies have been invented that allow them to be easier to use and more durable than ever before. Some of the features that newer awnings might have include:

  • Retractable capabilities – Allow you to extend your awning when you want the shade and retract it when you would like some sun.
  • Automatic operation – Not only can modern awnings be extended and retracted, but they can also be installed with sun and wind sensors to do so automatically.
  • Stronger materials – Many newer style awnings are made with fabric that’s woven from solution-dyed synthetic fibers for resistance to fading and the growth of mold and mildew.
  • Protective casings – Allow you to protect your awning from inclement weather, such as wind, rain, and snow, when it is not in use.
  • And more
