The Versatility of Awnings
Awnings designs are extremely flexible. When you combine the options of fabric, color and style there is an almost infinite variety of shapes to create and to enhance any home.
Standard awnings are like cloth eaves – virtual extensions of the roofline. They can come with a straight edge, or with a scalloped valance. Other available shapes include Bullnose, Dome, Circular, Gable, Half Rounds, Quarter Rounds, Waterfalls, Box Gables and even Spearhead supported Awnings.
While plain colors and stripes are the most popular patterns for awnings the final look is only limited to the available fabric and your imagination. Custom fabrics can of course be created, but such bespoke items are more expensive and generally confined to commercial applications.
Factors to Consider When Installing Awnings
Awnings can dramatically improve both the look and the utility of your home. To get the best out of your awning, make sure that there is ample head space above the window or door to allow enough room for the head box, as well as unobstructed clearance to any folding arms or swing arms.
If you’re installing an warning in a caravan or mobile home you’ll need to consider certain other factors. Proper measurement in this case is vital. It’s probably to your best advantage to get a professional to install the awning on to a caravan, rather than do it yourself.
Some people might find winding an unwinding an awning to be quite a challenge. This is especially true for the elderly or anyone else with strength mobility issues. In these cases motor-operated awnings are viable option, especially when they are linked to either remote control mechanism – or a sun sensor mechanism that would make the awning for the automatic.Aside from the usual canvas and PVC options for awning material, mesh fabrics are also available. Mesh fabrics allow filtration of heat and UV radiation, while allowing more light to penetrate.
