Side curtainside-curtain

The side curtain is an extra panel that hangs on the side of the awning. It is attached to the awning by two hooks. The side curtain comes handy for northern or southern exposure. It is also good for privacy.

The side curtain can be made from matching awning fabric or screen. It is recommended to have your awning installed first, adjust it to a desired slope and then order the side curtain.

protective-hoodProtective Hood

This optional hood is suggested for installations where there is no overhang to protect the awning (a hood cannot be used in conjunction with ceiling or rafter brackets).

By protecting the roll of fabric from the elements, a protective hood helps in keeping your awning looking new for longer.

A specially designed weather strip at the back closes the gap between the hood and the wall, eliminating the need for caulking.

spring-assistSpring Assist

Retractable awnings have powerful springs in the folding arms to keep the fabric taut at all times.

The spring assist option is a device that can be installed in the roller tube at the factory upon request.

When you start to retract your awning, it assists you in compressing the heavy-duty springs inside the awning arms, without having to apply excessive force.
