Base Price Ranges from $2,592 to $13,207 plus options

See our pricing pdf for more details and to find the price for the size(s) you want

Product Overview

  • Traditional Italian design inspired by the Mediterranean coast

  •   Modern engineering                                                                                                                                                                                   
    • Qualicoat® powder-coated, non-rusting 6063 aluminum frame

    • High-end commercial-grade arms and front-bar with stainless steel German Flexon® brand chains in the arms for added strength

    • Rust-proof powder coated brackets

    • Italian heavy duty commercial grade spring-loaded arms

    • High-set roller tube

    • Removable front bar telescopic pole for extra support in the wind (optional)

  • Emphasized pitch - pitch range is adjustable for outstanding east or west exposure sun protection - 0°to 70° - completely flat to incredibly steep. The industry standard is only about 25°. Note: Palermo Plus  offers an additional 20° pitch over the Palermo

  • Pitch is easily adjusted on earn arm individually by using a detachable crank

  • Frame available in 4 colors: white, sand, black and bronze (brown)

  • Can be covered in solution-dyed acrylic fabric for brilliant color, resiliency, and long life

  • Extra-sized width – maximum width of 52 feet, 6 inches using one piece of fabric and one motor

  • Maximum projection of 13 feet, 2 inches

  • Features a detachable crank for manual operation and manual override (optional) for motorized operation if experiencing a power loss at your location or in the area

  • Industry-leading non-prorated 25 year frame warranty

  • Industry-leading 10-year fabric warranty

  • Suitable for residential installations

 

The Palermo Plus shares many of the same attributes of its sister awning the Palermo:

  • Elegantly minimalist frame

  • High-set roller tube

  • Qualicoat® brand powder-coated, non-rusting aluminum frame

  • Stainless steel German Flexon® brand chains in the arms for added strength

  • Extra-sized width (up to 52 1/2 feet)

The Palermo Plus adds even more flexibility to the Palermo line. It has a 1-foot, 4-inch longer projection, up to 13 feet, 2inches. This expands the shade protection of the Palermo Plus and makes it ideal for large-scale shade, such as decks, patios, balconies, even long walkways and seating areas.

 The Palermo Plus can be installed at a significantly steeper angle than the Palermo (or any other lateral awning at RetractableAwnings.com), an impressive range of 0° to 70°. The Palermo Plus takes full advantage of this range of motion by emphasizing pitch. The pitch of the awning is the angle of the slope down for the awning. The Palermo Plus pitch is set and adjusted on each arm individually and very easily using a detachable crank. There are even built-in bubble levels on the front bar to make sure the front bar is perfectly level.

 The Palermo line is marked by grace and traditional style. The Palermo Plus adds convenience and flexibility that surpasses any other lateral arm awning on the market today.

Hi Morris, I would like to thank you and your motor manufacturer Somfy for standing by your product's warranty. I have and will continue to talk about your fine product when people ask where I got it from. I have always told them yes you pay a little more for a high-quality awning but I always say you get what you pay for. In the long run, it is less expensive than replacing other awnings every 1 to 3 years. I always knew your product was very high quality but now I know first hand that you stand 100% behind it. Please pass this on to your motor manufacturer so they also know how I feel. Again thanks a lot for handling this matter in a very professional manner. The new motor is installed and working fine.

When I first called RetractableAwnings.com, I was greeted by Maureen, a lady with a beautiful accent. I asked for the sales department and was transferred immediately. Eric the salesperson was very helpful, pleasant, and most importantly extremely informative. Eric told me he has 30 years' experience, and it showed! Now that the Palermo Plus model retractable awning has been installed by my handyman, I can't tell you how satisfied we are. RetractableAwnings.com offers a 25-year, non-prorated frame warranty (the longest non-prorated I could find) that was competitively priced for superior quality and offered me outstanding customer service from beginning to end. Actually, this is not the end as I plan to order another for my business storefront. Call RetractableAwnings.com today......You definitely won't be disappointed!

My architect found you guys online and recommended one of your retractable sun awning canopies. I considered you and Sunsetter and noted that your products are far superior in quality, you have a much wider range of fabric colors and you have engineering certifications on the frame and fabric (which means higher quality) and motion sensors, sun sensors, and rain sensors. Morris provided incredible service prior to, during, and after the sale. Merci from Canada.

Your canvas retractable awning "choose your awning product finder" at this link: https://www.retractableawnings.com/choose-your-awning.html was a great help in finding the best product type and model for our situation. We had two questions that you answered via email the same day. We are thrilled with our retractable canvas awning and have already recommended you to two friends in Caracas. Trabajo excelente.

As a Professional & Structural Engineer (P.E., S.E.), I researched my motorized retractable awning purchase online by completing my own detailed retractable awning review. Subsequent to my review, I was no longer skeptical about purchasing online from Retractableawnings.com. I had 2 local companies visit my home and realized that you guys knew more than both of the local companies combined! You offered much better quality than both. I am thrilled with the installed electric retractable awning.

I found your website on an awning forum. My wife and I then completed a thorough retractable awning comparison. Now that the retractable awning is installed, and we have been using it for several years, there is no doubt that Jill and I purchased the highest quality retractable awning brand available online...... only available from Retractableawnings.com. Now, our kids and pets are cool all year long.

Our previous awning vendor went out of business twelve days before our annual company "Celebrate Spring" party, leaving us with no shade to cover approximately 100 employees and guests. On extremely short notice, Morris at Retractableawnings.com provided impeccable service......the large retractable awning was installed the morning of the event. Potential clients that were at the party love the retractable awning. We have since installed three of your retractable awnings for guests that attended the party.

I was impressed by the memberships you have in the American Institute of Architects, the American Society of Landscape Architects, the Professional Manufacturers Awning Association and the IFAI and also that Retractableawnings.com is a Somfy motorization platinum level expert. The section of your website allowing us to compare all the different models is invaluable and made it really easy for my husband and me to choose the correct model to meet our needs.

I just had to write you a note and tell you what a pleasure it was to deal with your whole staff. The online live help salesperson was very informative and completed a 3D rendering to show me what my RV awning would look like using three different fabrics. We are very satisfied with our RV awning and definitely will recommend Retractableawnings.com

We are amazed at the quality and strength of your aluminum electrostatically powder-coated non-rusting frame. Now, we understand why you offer a 25-year non-prorated frame warranty. We lived in Paris for many years, so we know our folding arm awnings and this is hands down the very best folding arm awning we have ever owned

Morris, I wanted to let you know that our water-resistant awning survived the 150 miles an hour winds of hurricane Katrina in Pass Christian, MS. It looks almost brand new from the outside. All we did was remove the front bar valance prior to hurricane Katrina. I can send a picture of it if you like. Thank you so much for sending me the replacement wind anemometer.
