Corporate Background:

Since 1981, Sunesta Shade Systems has led the American retractable awning industry in technological advances.  We are dedicated to continuing this tradition of engineering excellence in all our products; every component, feature and option is designed with a focus on innovation.

Sunesta invented the process of computer-aided awning manufacturing, and our proprietary equipment and processes ensure precise customization with the industry’s fastest turnaround time.  Sunesta Retractable Awnings are more than precisely crafted though; they also offer a number of benefits to homeowners, such as the ability to block the sun, but preserve exterior views. Retractable awnings may also lower energy costs by up to 25 percent, as revealed by a 2007 study conducted by the Center for Sustainable Building Research at the University of Minnesota. In addition, homeowners can expand their outdoor living spaces while beautifying their homes.

Sunesta’s product line includes retractable patio awning models and retractable window and door awning models that are available in a range of widths up to 40′ and projections up to 14’8″, depending on the model selected. With the widest variety of features and options in the retractable awnings industry, and a selection of more than 190 fabric patterns, homeowners have the ability to completely customize their Sunesta awning, creating the perfect fit and style for their homes.
