The art of outdoor living

As soon as the sun starts shining, we want to spend summer afternoons leisurely relaxing on our patios. Combining furniture, plants, lighting and accessories creates the perfect environment for dining or relaxing with loved ones.
A motorised awning is an important element of your patio space, providing sun protection for a comfortable atmosphere and allowing you to enjoy your evenings come rain or shine.

The fabric on a folding arm awning is exposed to the elements. However, the awning can be installed under the overhang of a roof to protect it from potential weather damage.
