Window awnings are a great way to dress up your home’s windows for a more dramatic, colorful or charming look. Not only do they give your home a more attractive appearance but they also provide protection from the sun’s damaging UV rays.
Easily Retractable & Protective
Window awnings can either be fixed for year round usage (traditional) or retractable. Both have the capabilities of protecting your curtains, furniture, flooring and carpets inside the house against fading and discoloration due to UV rays. However, retractable window awnings, with either a crank or a motor, have an extra advantage over traditional window awnings. A homeowner using the retractable option is able to change the angle of the awning depending on how much shade they wish to have. This will allow for maximum protection from the sun in order to protect the furniture inside the house and reduce the house’s energy consumption and air conditioning. It’s especially practical and in some cases necessary for people who need constant protection from direct contact with the sun even while indoors.
The possibilities are endless with OmbraSole’s retractable window awning; you can roll them in and out and change the angle of the awning as you please, depending on the sun’s position. What’s great is that even in the winter when the retractable awning needs to be rolled in, a protective hood is available to protect the retractable roll and mechanism from ice and winter damage.
Window awnings made with vinyl require no annual maintenance just a simple washing with water at the end of the summer. For those that wish to go with the acrylic fabric option require a quick and easy monthly cleaning with water to prevent dust and dirt from being deeply embedded in the fabric. As the structure is made with a solid molded aluminum, it is free from rusting.
Beware of steel structures; they are too heavy for the wall of your house, require continuous maintenance and can easily rust over the years.
Without even realizing it, window awnings have the potential to increase the value and image of your property. OmbraSole’s Window Awnings come in various designs, colors and sizes; you can easily choose a modern, medieval or classical look in order to enhance the outside look of your home and tie everything nicely together.
