With a rectangular profile and rounded edges, the Pisa is an elegant contradiction of tailored crispness.
The Pisa is a dome canopy awning. A dome canopy has fabric all around the awning, unlike a lateral arm retractable awning which has fabric at the top, but not at the sides. The dome shape gives seamless sun protection in a compact frame, which makes dome canopies a common choice for windows (where an awning can't take too much space and has to provide maximum coverage).
Most domes – like the Colosseo – have a traditional circular shape. The rectangular frame of the Pisa imitates the flatter profile of lateral arm awnings, while still offering the 180-degree shade of a window canopy.
The Pisa dome canopy is made of a series of ribs that all hinge at a single point. These ribs spread out like the spokes on a wheel when the dome is fully opened. The Pisa is opened and closed manually using a pull cord and is shipped with a cord cleat to tie the cord down.
Domes have a small, self-contained shape; the Pisa's flattened shape gives the feeling of width. The Pisa can have a longer valance to give a little extra shade and style.
The Pisa is rated to perform in winds up to 24mph and can withstand nominal pressure up to 3352 lb/ft2 (70 N/m2).
Important: Please note that the Pisa 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 Pisa awning.
