Awnings With Protection From Sun & Rain

Nationwide have been installing custom made Awnings across the UK for over 30 years. Sun & Rain Awnings are becoming more popular thanks to the dual function of being able to be used for both sun protection and also in moderate rain fall.

Standard Awning Design

What is An Awning?

The term "Awning" can relate to many products. However, in our industry, an awning is a retractable product designed for providing shade, usually manufactured from an aluminium frame and an acrylic based fabric. It is generally mounted to wall of a property (though can be freestanding) and extended using a spring loaded folding arm that retracts back into a cassette when not in use.

Sun & Rain Awning

What is a Sun & Rain Awning?

The primary difference between a standard Awning and a Sun & Rain Awning is the Sun & Rain Awning utilises a frame including guide rails and front posts.

This provides much more rigidity which in turn allows much larger projections and in turn, allows for use in stronger winds and heavier rains.

Why Choose A Sun & Rain Awning From Nationwide?

Rain Awning With Post

Awnings For Rain

For rain water to effectively run off of the fabric a minimum pitch (angle) should be set to at least 14 degrees.

This is not always possible or practical and in these instances, we can provide an adjustable post that easily drops one side of the Awning down for those times you need rain protection.

The New Tumba Awning

The Tumba Rain Awning

The new innovative Tumba Awning overcomes the 14 degree limitation using a unique locking and tensioning system. Allowing water run off at just 8 degrees.

When the Tumba Awning is fully extended, the fabric is then automatically tensioned like a trampoline. Water then has nowhere to go but into the integral gutter system and out of the bottom of the posts.

With it's minimalistic frame, stylish and innovative design and with projections up to 5m you can see why this product won the Red Dot Design Award.
