Retractable Awnings

Enjoy your space morning, noon and night.

Solair® retractable awnings are the perfect addition to your home, allowing flexibility to make the most of your space. When extended, Solair awnings provide shade and help to define a space. When retracted, your awning blends into the background of your home allowing a more open environment. And since our awnings are motorized, you can control your space with the press of a button.

Solair retractable awnings definitely create shade for your outdoor spaces, but they do so much more, creating a popular space in the home morning, noon and night. Whether you are eating breakfast outside, spending time with the family in the afternoon, or hosting a party in the evening, Solair awnings create an ambiance, turning your patio into an outdoor retreat.

The transformation is not only outside your home. Solair awnings also make a big impact inside your home. An extended awning can block the sun and prevent damage to furniture, drapes and flooring as well as reduce energy consumption by lowering temperatures inside your home.

The direction your home faces can tell you a lot about your shade needs. If you need shade all day long in your outdoor living space, your house faces south and needs a wider width shade solution. If you only need shaded protection from the sun during the afternoon and evening, your house faces west and needs a shade solution that extends farther out from the house. Your local dealer can help you find the right solution for you.
