Retractable Awnings

Why Choose a Retractable Luxaflex® Awning ?

Extra living space is something we all crave, making our homes and gardens as useful and as flexible as possible. Adding an attractive retractable awning creates new opportunities for the whole family to enjoy the patio, and not just in the summer! In the springtime and autumn, your awning can be used to extend the season, especially with built-in heating and lighting.

A good investment for your home, a retractable awning is a very inexpensive way to extend your home compared to building and gives you more time to enjoy the garden and family time. Luxaflex® retractable awnings feature superior materials and designs that not only look superb but are highly durable too.

Let's look at the top reasons retractable awnings are such a good investment for your home.

How do Awnings protect you from the sun?

Installing a retractable awning over your patio or decking provides valuable shade and protects you from up to 98% of the sun’s harmful UV rays.

By reducing the sunlight means you reduce the overall temperature of your patio space – this makes it more comfortable for the whole family to be outside when the weather is good.

When the awning is not in use, it can be neatly closed away into a cassette box which provides protection from the elements.

Awnings also offer protection from light showers and drizzle by directing the water away from the house or sidings around your windows and doors.

Do Awnings stop harmful UV Rays?

A Luxaflex® made-to-measure retractable awning can block the sun’s heat and harmful UV rays before they hit your home. Direct exposure to damaging UV rays can cause discoloration, fading, and damage to furniture and flooring both inside and out.

By using a remote control, you can protect your interiors further by adjusting the awning to create more shade. If you also combine an awning with an interior blind, you can add even more protection from UV rays.

How can Awnings help reduce energy costs?

A professionally installed awning can help reduce your energy costs by cooling an interior space room through natural shading. This means you don't need to run expensive air conditioning or fans in the summer, and in winter, the awnings can be fully closed so your home can take advantage of free warmth from the sun.

Adding lighting and heating to your awning is a great way to extend the usefulness of your outdoor living space. Our all-weather heater extends the season to spring, summer, autumn, and maybe even winter keeping you cosy till late a night. You can go further by adding an all-weather music system to get the party started!

How will wind effect my awning?

By adding a sun and a wind sensor means the awning will move automatically when it registers the sun’s rays, and retract when the winds seem too high. The sun sensor is also very handy as it will automatically open the awning when the sun shines to provide much-needed shading for your patio. When it starts to get windy no need to worry as the wind sensor will close the awning automatically protecting it from wind damage.
