A retractable awning can be recognized looking at the fabric of polyester with different patterns that is extended over the outdoor space to be covered. The system consists in a roll, placed at the top, for the fabric to tie and release as to open and close the aluminum awning, some springs to push the fabric out and extend it and a bar attached to the bottom of the bar that supports the fabric to be straight and lined up. The roll of the awning can be mounted in a cassette of powder coated aluminum aimed to protect the fabric.
An important advantage for our clients is that the system described above can be fixed directly on existing walls, on existing pillars or under the roof with some special brackets. For these cases there are not necessary additional structures to fix the awning. We are able to create pillars upon request to mount the awning system on them. The awnings can be also added to other of our retractable roofs to provide shade.
