What happens when the wind picks up and my awning is extended?

If you live in Saskatchewan, you know what it is like to go from no wind to 50km gusts in an instant.  In order to cope with this, we have 3 different options:

1.  Manual/Motorized Retraction – simply put, you would need to go out and retract your awning to prevent any damage.

2.  Hold Down Poles – these are poles that connect into the outside edge of the awning front and fasten to a location on your deck.  They serve to hold the awning a more stable if the winds kick up.

3.  Wind Sensor – This is a sensor that can be mounted on the outside edge of the awning and when it senses that the wind is too strong, it will retract the awning.  Please note that this option is only available to motorized awnings.

What is the minimum spacing that you need between the top of a window and the soffits in order to wall mount?

In order to wall mount an awning over a window, it really depends on the size and style of awning as these can vary. A minimum of 12″ is typically sufficient for most awning types but that can change to as much as 16″. Most times, it is a case by case situation as to whether we can mount in tighter spaces.

Can I add a motor later if I decide I want one?

It can be done but we do advise that you make the decision to add a motor prior to ordering your awning. In order to add it after, the awning must be uninstalled, returned to the supplier to be added, and then re-installed. This is both time consuming and costly, not to mention inconvenient to you.
