Here is a lovely semi cassette Garden Awning recently installed in Somerset. The frame is in our up and coming colour – anthracite. This is a fully electric Sun Awning that is operated via a simple remote control. In addition to this the customer has a Sun & Wind sensor which is jut about visible on the right hand side. This will, if the customer chooses, bring the awning in and out on its own, depending on the weather conditions.
This Garden Awning has been made to a width of 3.5m with a projection of 3m. The customer has also chosen to have a valance which gives additional shade as well as giving the Awning a pleasant look. This valance is easily removed and can then be stored over the winter months to keep it in good condition.
Clearly, this Garden Awning is installed on a bungalow. Some people may believe that they are unable to have an Awning on this type of property as generally you cannot fix into the top courses of bricks. In this instance we have used some custom made plates to bring the fixings lower down the wall, which also spread the load. We call these spreader plates and they are commonly used on bungalows or walls with little strength.
