The advantages of an awning

The awning is the ideal solar protection to cover your terrace. In the summer, it shades your balcony or terrace and becomes a real decorative element. In winter the awning is more discreet, you unroll it only when you need it.

The awning allows you to protect your terrace or garden from UV rays, heat and sun, to make the most of your outdoor space during hot weather. This saves energy on air conditioning in the summer.

Outdoor awnings are the perfect way to dress up your terrace or garden. A true aesthetic element, the canvas awning can be customized endlessly.

The awning has a long life, due to the quality of materials used: Lacquered aluminum frames and quality fabrics selected for their insulating performance and durability.
