Why Purchase Retractable Awnings?
We believe the question is not why, but why not? Solair® retractable awnings are the perfect addition to your San Diego home, allowing flexibility to make the most of your space. When extended, Solair awnings provide shade and help to define a space. When retracted, your awning blends into the background of your home allowing a more open environment. And since our awnings are motorized, you can control your space with the press of a button.
Solair retractable awnings definitely create shade for your outdoor spaces, but they do so much more, creating a popular space in the home morning, noon and night. Whether you are eating breakfast outside, spending time with the family in the afternoon, or hosting a party in the evening, Solair awnings create an ambiance, turning your patio into a retreat.
Standard Patio Awnings
Our line of standard patio awnings comes in the most common widths to cover patio or deck spaces. Standard awnings come with a choice of two frame colors, and hundreds of Sunbrella fabrics options.
Custom Patio Awnings
If you are looking for an awning that is tailored to your exact space, a custom patio awning is the way to go. These awnings are available in custom sizes to perfectly fit your space, and offers more choice in frame color. With a custom awning you also have hundreds of Sunbrella fabrics to choose from.
Window awnings bring the technology of Solair awnings in a compact product for window applications. Window awnings add to the architectural aesthetic of your home, help to control the indoor temperature, as well as protect the interior from sun damage.
Power screens are ideal when a sleek design is desired and Solair offers two models to fit your home. The Solair power screen model with “SRS” technology incorporates side retention tracks on each edge of the fabric to eliminate gaps and create a perfect barrier from pesky insects. This model offers the best combination of sun protection as well as a complete enclosure system.
The Solair power screen “Cable Guided” model is best used in lighter wind environments and is primarily designed to offer sun protection, privacy screening and light wind protection. This model is ideal if the architectural design of your home doesn’t allow for the installation of side tracks and a complete enclosure isn’t necessary.
Vertical Drop Curtains
An economical choice, the Solair Vertical Roller Curtain provides both shade and privacy without a sleek housing or track system. The roller curtain is not fully fixed at the bottom, and can move with a gust of wind.
For more stability, you may consider the Solair Vertical Cable Curtain. These curtains utilize side cables that protect the curtain from movement and provide more security in windy conditions.
The transformation is not only outside your home. Solair awnings also make a big impact inside your home. An extended awning can block the sun and prevent damage to furniture, drapes and flooring as well as reduce energy consumption by lowering temperatures inside your home. This is especially useful here in the San Diego inland communities as the temperatures have been getting hotter for longer periods over the past few years.
The direction your home faces can tell you a lot about your shade needs. If you need shade all day long in your outdoor living space, your house faces south and needs a wider width shade solution. If you only need shaded protection from the sun during the afternoon and evening, your house faces west and needs a shade solution that extends farther out from the house.
