Types of Awnings available
There are two major awning types and they are fixed and retractable awnings, and they are accessible in numerous shapes.
- Fixed awnings are also known as stationary awnings and come with a welded frame that is permanently fixed to a wall. This feature makes this awning type perfect for smaller areas like doors and windows, providing full weather safeguard. Moreover, they are built strong to endure.
- Retractable awning is also connected to your property but it can be opened and closed to offer as petite or ample cover as you need. Retractable awnings can be stretched by a hand crank or motorised controls. Perfect for deck and patios, retractable awnings frame need very little maintenance. Moreover, they can be installed to the roof and the walls. In windy weather conditions, they can be put aside.
Types of Cover
Awning covers are usually available in two different fabric types’ viz. (1) Cotton and (2) Polyester; however, you’ll also get Poly-Carbonate as a third option in fabric selection.
Cotton: Cotton is a conventional awning material and it’s innately robust, waterproof and enduring. You can wash cotton fabric in your washing machine.
Polyester: When you choose a polyester awning, you can be certain that it will resist weather and block harmful UV rays while still letting some sunlight. This material is also breathable and you can just wipe it down to clean it.
Poly-Carbonate: Poly-carbonate material is strong and this type of awning will be nearly unbreakable and many of them also feature UV protection and lower transmission of light.
These fabrics are often treated in one of three ways – they will be laminate-coated, acrylic-coated or vinyl-coated.
- Laminate or vinyl coating makes the fabric fire and water-resistant but more prone to fading.
- Conversely, the acrylic layer helps the fabrics’ colour to last but doesn’t add that water and fire resistance.
Styles of Window Awning
Distinctive awning styles can make your home or business noticeable. While you get a variety of options in stationary awnings, most of the retractable awnings are available only in the ornamental style.
