Retractable awnings that come with their own motor are very popular these days. They are ideal for saving time and effort as these blinds extend or retract at the push of a button. Some of these clever motors even have sensors which automatically adjust the blinds as programmed when the weather changes.
Of course there are models that also come with a manual back-up, so that even if you lose power during a storm, you can still roll up the awning. Retractable awning manufacturers are very careful to install a manual override so that you can winch in the awning by hand if you need to.
Most retractable awnings do not have any poles and are designed to be self-supporting. Each retractable awning has a secure mounting with heavy-duty arms for support. There are internal springs that create the arm tension and large radius elbows help to keep the awning fabric taut at all times.
Guaranteed quality and convenience
There is nothing as convenient as retractable awnings, whether you have a manual or automatic model. Even the manual models only take a few cranks of the hand mechanism to have the awning rolled back and out of the way. The lightweight fabrics are guaranteed against rot and mildew and the warranty covers all defects for up to five years. When you take care of the retractable awnings according to the manufacturer’s instructions, you should be able to have an awning that lasts for 8 to 12 years.
With a retractable awning Sydney’s harsh outdoor conditions aren’t a problem. Unlike fixed canopies, retractable awnings provide you with better control against the effects of the sun. They are made to withstand the hottest summer and storms and winter chills. Being retractable, you can pull them back after sunset and extend them again in the daytime.

You can make your garden, backyard, patio or terrace a comfortable haven.
