Palermo is known for its classical flair, its balmy Mediterranean coast, and its rich history. The Palermo retractable awning is a natural extension of that heritage, adding modern engineering to the millennia-old tradition of Italian awnings.

The Palermo's Qualicoat® powder-coated, non-rusting 6063 aluminum frame has a minimalist, squared back bar, heavy-duty commercial grade arms, and front bar. The frame appears lighter and smaller than it really is by slightly elevating the roller in the back. This also allows the pitch of the awning to be mounted in a very wide range, from 0° (completely flat) to 50° (steep).

The Palermo model is unusual in that it can be manufactured with a projection that is greater than or equal to the width. This is accomplished using a proprietary overlapping arm kit. In the price list below, all blue numbers are sizes that use the overlapping arm kit.

The Palermo can be covered in solution-dyed acrylic fabric. Solution-dyed acrylic is a softly-textured, woven fabric made from man-made fibers that are known for its brilliant color, resiliency, and long life. RetractableAwnings.com has over 400 styles of solution-dyed acrylic fabrics from major European and American manufacturers.

The Palermo can be fabricated up to 52 feet 6 inches wide using one piece of fabric and one motor. The extra-wide size combined with an install angle that can be as sharp as 50° means the Palermo can provide an eye-catching yet traditional way to control sunlight and glare both indoors and out for residential and commercial properties.

Retractableawnings.com customer service is excellent. Morris located the original purchase order from over 10 years ago and was able to confirm the needed parts and availability. Definitely will use Retractableawnings.com again.

The 3D renderings that Eric sent me (one solid fabric and one striped fabric) by email showing different options for our retractable awnings are incredible. Those renderings allowed my elderly mother to choose the fabric color, trim color, and scallop design very easily. Fast, friendly, and convenient (since the closest awning company is very far from home) and we did not need to leave our house to make the purchase. We will most definitely recommend Retractable Awnings to our family, friends, and neighbors

Your website Retractableawnings.com is definitely without exception the very best retractable residential awning website on the Internet. You have so much information, like your side-by-side comparisons, that helped make the purchase very simple. Whoever designed your website must be a genius. We are ecstatic about the quality of our Palermo retractable awning and have been using it for 7 years without any issues. It continues to function and look fantastic!

Your web fabric search feature allowing my contractor and me to look through only the solution-dyed fabric colors and patterns I was interested in was a big-time saving. Instead of reviewing over 400 fabrics, I was able to narrow the choice down to 20-25. Of those 20-25, we requested 5 actual samples and ordered the best color option for our Palermo retractable patio awning from those samples. We could not have chosen a better fabric or company!

Thank you so much for e-mailing me your lead technician's mobile phone number. He was able to answer my questions regarding the wiring of the retractable house awning motor, rain, sun, and wind sensor for my client here in Chicago. Rocky, your technician, is a tremendous asset to your organization.
