What Sizes do Retractable Awnings Come In?
Are you tired of harsh afternoon light ruining your relaxing day reading on the porch? How about the hot summer sun making it impossible to comfortably eat outdoors? Maybe you’re looking for a creative new way to expand your Plano home’s living space.
Retractable awnings offer a solution to all of these problems. A retractable awning can transform your porch or patio into a comfortable and cozy outdoor living space at the push of a button, but what size will work best for you? Whether you’re looking for a small awning to add a bit of shade or a large awning that spans the length of your patio, Next Century Screens can help. We offer and install three main sizes of retractable awnings, each customizable to your home’s exact needs.
We’re proud to offer Sunesta retractable awnings, and The Sunesta is the original, flagship awning that set the bar for all the other awnings we offer. With a maximum width of 40’ and a maximum projection of 14’8”, The Sunesta is perfect for those looking to shade their entire porch or patio.
The Sunesta’s claim to fame? Its durability. All of Sunesta’s retractable awnings are the only ones on the market to receive Miami-Dade County approval for their wind resistance. That means you won’t have to worry about your investment when extreme weather rolls in.
The Sunstyle offers the same durability and maximum width as The Sunesta with a slightly shorter maximum projection. If your patio or porch doesn’t need a full 14’8” of projection, The Sunstyle may be perfect for you, with a maximum projection of 11’6”.
Maybe you have a pool in your backyard area that doesn’t need shading, or maybe you want to leave half the patio in sun while the other half stays cool. The Sunstyle offers all the flexibility you need to design your perfect outdoor living space.
The Sunlight is the perfect retractable awning for those with smaller outdoor living spaces, or those who only want to shade an outdoor dining or seating area. It has a maximum width of 24’ and a maximum projection of 10’. What The Sunlight lacks in size, it more than makes up for in style, durability, and optional features.
Like The Sunesta and The Sunstyle, The Sunlight offers optional features such as:
- Low sun protection – The Sunesta and the Sunstyle offer a front bar drop valance, and The Sunlight offers a customizable adjustable arm to shield the setting sun.
- Ambient lighting – All three styles offer the option for dimmable LED lighting installed into the awning’s adjustable arms to create a dreamy outdoor environment to relax in at night.
- Motorized controls – Choose from an auto sensor, a smart phone app, or a remote control to wirelessly adjust your retractable awning.
