Protect Your Eclipse Shading Systems® During Summer Storms

It’s just that time of year. Pop up thunderstorms, some with high winds, heavy rain, and hail can occur at almost any time. A summer storm can put a damper on fun in the backyard, but it doesn’t have to make a mess of your Eclipse retractable awnings. Eclipse shading products are custom made of high quality materials and come with standard and extended warrantees. They are built to last, keeping your family safe from harmful UV rays, reducing heat and sun glare indoors and outdoors. Your Eclipse retractable awnings are even able to withstand light rain and wind. But when wind gusts exceed 20 miles per hour and the rain starts, you run for shelter and your awnings need shelter as well.

protect your Eclipse shading system from harsh weatherRetractable awnings are designed for protection from the sun and Eclipse shading systems offers the most durable shading products in the industry, but awnings need to be protected and cared for during summer storms with high winds and rain. If you do not feel comfortable sitting outside on your porch and want to stay indoors to escape the storm, your awning should be rolled up and protected as well. Wind can swoop underneath your awning and raise the fabric beyond its tolerance and rain can weight down awning fabric from above.
