Important Note: The FAQ questions and answers below ONLY apply to folding lateral arm awnings from Retractableawnings.com and not to any other product type available on our website or folding lateral arm awnings from any other vendor.
Folding arm awnings and commercial retractable awnings for decks use a moveable contained joint arm, along with the awning fabric, mounted to a wall, eave/soffit, fascia, beam, rafter or a roof that allows these awnings to be stowed or folded away and conveniently stored when not in use. Our commercial-grade retractable awning arms contain Italian springs that push the arms open with a German, Flexon brand, non-rusting stainless steel chain in the elbow of the awning, extending the fabric cover. Most typically used by businesses with patios and decks, the retractable awning can be extended and retracted to provide shade, protection from damaging UV rays, light rain protection when necessary, and allow sunlight to enter a building in the winter months. Commercial retractable awnings can be either motorized or manual and if motorized can be controlled with a wall switch, remote control transmitter, timers, smartphone, tablet, voice control, wind sensors, motion sensors, and rain/sun sensors.
Using spring-loaded arms, under high tension, our modern folding arm retractable awning arms contain commercial grade Italian springs that push the arms open with German, Flexon brand, non-rusting stainless steel chain in the elbow of the awning, extending the fabric cover.
All of our modern retractable awning models allow the ability to adjust or stop the awning at any point when being extended or retracted. In addition, all our modern retractable awning models provide the ability for the customer to adjust the pitch or angle of the arms to allow for light rain runoff and/or better sun, UV, glare, and heat protection from a sunrise or sunset.
Our high-quality, European TÜV Product Approved, CE Certified, 80,000 cycle tested (best in the industry) folding arm awnings range from $2,000 - $12,000 for a very large unit.
The best commercial lateral arm retractable awnings (all of our models) can withstand winds up to approximately 20 mph depending on the model and size. For wind beyond 20mph, it is highly recommended to use either a wind sensor or motion sensor to automatically close the lateral arm awning. Lateral arm awnings are designed for light rain runoff assuming enough pitch is placed on the arms. Lateral arm awnings are not designed for heavy rain regardless of how much pitch/angle is placed on the arms. For heavy rain, consider either a retractable patio and deck pergola cover or our bioclimatic rotating and retractable louver roof systems.
