Retractable Awnings

Retractable Awnings

Introducing the best of Italian design articulated awnings. From classic rollout design to the new Shan, a retractable awning which conceals the hardware and rolling mechanisms inside a boxed cassette system when retracted.

Fabric Choices

From Corradi's signature Para Tempotest, to traditional Sunbrella, to an exclusive Ferrari canvas, there are over 150 colors/color combinations to choose from.

Design Options

From Rollaway which can be enclosed in a headrail, to the articulated Shan with the box cassette, these awnings can be manually operated or motorized for ease of operation.

Sun Control

The retractable awnings offer protection from the sun over large spaces such as decks or patios. They are also used to protect exterior windows from the glaring sun which is responsible for the radiant heat gain inside the house during the summer months.
Ralph's notes: Articulated and retractable awnings certainly are helpful to minimize the sun's effects on large outdoor spaces. They allow more comfortable use of outdoor decks and patios but do have limitations. You certainly do not want to leave them deployed in inclement weather and should be equipped with motorized rollup systems in conjunction with a wind sensor.
