Retractable Awnings


We have retractable awnings to fit just about any budget and application for homes and businesses.  All of our retractable awnings are imported from Italy and made locally in New York.  Here are some photos that show the various product options and applications we have come across, and the installation techniques that we have utilized.

Stationary Awnings

Custom-made stationary awnings are perfect to completely or even partially cover a large deck or patio. These awnings can be designed in just about any shape and size you want.  Custom stationary awnings are designed to match your exact specifications, given your goals and installation considerations. Even if you think you have a challenging shape or idea, give us a call.

Commercial Awnings and Structures

Storefront Awnings, Entrance Canopies, Restaurant Awnings, Office Building Awnings and other Business Shading Structures come in many shapes and sizes.  Already have an existing commercial awning or structure but thinking about a new one?  Has your business changes owners and need a new theme?  Many times the existing framework is in tact and can be rejuvenated with brand new fabrics and decorative graphics.  Take a look at the projects here and get some design ideas for yours!

Gennius Awnings

Unlike umbrellas, this cover won't blow away!  Pergolas look great, but they dont protect well.  The Gennius is the newest innovation in European-style retractable patio covers. With an amazing ability to master inclement weather, the Gennius unfolds with the push of a button, guaranteeing use of your outdoor space. Most residential Gennius installations actually replace older lateral arm retractable awnings... If you own an awning you're probably not surprised - as you already appreciate the many benefits of owning a high quality, custom shading solution; but have experienced the limitations of products designed mostly for shade.  The Gennius is also an excellent value for businesses.  When it comes to expanding your outdoor dining - it perfectly fills the gap between the pros, cons and price points of stationary awnings and full-blown renovations.

Pinnacle, Freestanding Awnings and Shade Structures

The Pinnacle is a cassette-style retractable awning.  It is a motorized exterior retractable awning for shading skylights, pergolas and glass roofs. The stationary framework and optional front posts make this pergola awning highly adaptable for unique installations where traditional awnings are not suitable.  This gallery highlights more of our hybrid and specialty shading solutions and outdoor living products. 

 Exterior Solar Shades

Our Exterior Shading Systems help to decrease interior fading from damaging UV rays, reduce energy bills and give you control of your home's natural lighting and privacy.  An Exterior Solar Shade can also keep out inclement weather and insects. We have various models, motorization, automation and hardware choices of exterior solar shades, customized to suit your unique goals.  Each one is then fitted perfectly with the best fabrics from a spectrum of hundreds of acrylics or meshes.   Here are some projects that show how and where solar screen shades are utilized around New Jersey and New York.

Interior Solar Shades

If you are looking for light control, energy efficiency, to reduce fading of your furnishings and to reduce that glare on your big screen TV or computer monitor, an interior retractable solar screen can solve all of these issues and still preserve your view of the outdoors! Solar shades not only help manage natural lighting, they also provide excellent glare control depending on the color of fabric you choose.

Window Awnings

Window awnings are generally a solution to an interior sun problem; though, with longer projections, can also be used for shade and shelter. Our comprehensive line of retractable and stationary window awnings can dramatically improve your indoor comfort; while at the same time controlling cooling-related energy costs. Window awnings can be purely aesthetic - adding eye-catching interest to your home or business; or they can be completely functional by adding graphic signage and reducing interior heat gain.
