What should I know before buying a retractable awning?

Q- What happens to the retractable awning in the winter?  

R- By their design, Ombrasole retractable awnings are auto- stored when retracted. Customers affected by severe winter conditions, can protect by covering with a sheath of fabric or plastic.

Q What type of wind resistance, an Ombrasole awning can handle?

R- Retractable awnings mainly for sun protection and should not be left open in very windy conditions, or when the area covered by the product is not used. The wind is an unpredictable force and can quickly change direction and intensity. In “real life ” applications , the basic rule is: if you ‘re comfortable sitting outdoors dining or reading a document, then it is wise to open the awning and enjoy the ‘outside; but if the wind starts to bother us and you’re not able to read anymore, your awning is too, so it should be closed.

Q- Why would I want my motorized awning?

R- Nothing could be more convenient and without physical effort than simply press a button on a remote control or the one on the motorized crank COBRA, and watch your awnings open and close. Once fully deployed or retracted the unit will stop automatically. You can also stop the awning at any position by simply pressing the button again.
