Installing patio awnings or deck awnings is a great way to increase the enjoyment you get from your outdoor living area. You reduce the direct heat and glare from the sun, protect your floors and furnishings, and save on cooling costs. With a few additional accessories, you can get even more enjoyment from your awnings and enhance your overall outdoor living experience. From lighting to wind sensors, we have an appealing range of optional add-ons to choose from.
With the exception of window awnings, this popular accessory is available on most of our retractable awnings. A discreet lighting source is securely attached to the inside of the awning’s front bar, casting a gentle, natural glow onto your deck or patio. It creates a wonderful atmosphere for entertaining in the evenings, giving soft light without attracting insects.
This popular accessory is available on our Eclipse, Eclipse Cross Arm and Total Eclipse models. The Eclipse Drop Shade acts as an extension to your existing awning, dropping down vertically from the front end of your awning to give increased protection again low sun, and also providing additional privacy. It retracts into its own housing, and can be motorized, or operated manually.
Now you can enjoy the pleasure of your outdoor living area on cool days too. The Eclipse Solar Beam Infrared Heater is an effective, safe way to warm up your patio, allowing you to sit outside even after summer has past. With its 1500-watt motor, it’s powerful enough to ensure you stay snug and warm. Fully remote controlled, you can increase or lessen the amount of heat at the touch of a button.
Somfry WireFree sensors work together with your shading system to both increase the efficiency of your awning and protect it when the elements are less than favorable. Wind sensors detect when the wind is too strong, and send a signal to the awning’s motor to automatically retract, thus adding a level of protection against possible damage. Sun sensors will pick up when the sun is too hot or bright on your patio, and will then signal your awning to extend.
