Colosseo - Retractable Canopy Awning
With its rounded half-circle profile and inherent symmetry, the Colosseo wears a timeless style that works with almost any architectural style, from Art Deco to bungalow to Italianate.
Dome canopies are primarily window awnings. The innate compactness and small shade profile of dome canopies, like Colosseo, is ideally suited to continual indoor sun protection, and the rounded slope of the canopy provides consistent protection from light rains without ever having to adjust the pitch of the awning.
The Colosseo can be as wide as 20 feet. This extra size means that Colosseo can fit over sidewalks or storefronts, while its relatively short projection makes the Colosseo a perfect fit for tight city streets, corners, and shopping centers. Additional features like a longer valance and screenprinting are available for commercial-styled awnings.
The Colosseo has a sturdy yet lightweight non rusting aluminum frame, which makes it safe and easy to install on upper stories. The Colosseo frame has several interior ribs which all connect to a central point and fan out like rays. This gives a symmetry and visual balance to the Colosseo.
Colosseo canopy awnings can be opened with a simple cord pull and are shipped with a cord cleat. Accessories which require a motor – like sensors and timers – cannot be used with the Colosseo.
Important: Please note that the Colosseo model is RETRACTABLE and not FIXED/PERMANENT/STATIONARY which is perfect for high winds, hurricanes and snow loads. With a fixed awning, you have to remove the fabric every year before snow begins to fall or before high winds and hurricanes. That is not the case with a RETRACTABLE Colosseo awning.

We have made an effort to provide solution dyed acrylic trim images that closely represent the solution dyed acrylic trim colors. However, due to all the possible variants -- light source, monitor quality, etc. -- we cannot guarantee that the fabric images accurately represent the true trim colors. Please take this into consideration if you are trying to coordinate colors of the awning trim/binding/piping with that of the retractable awning fabric cover.
