Manual awnings

These days, awnings aren’t just designed for protection. They have reached a completely new purpose and become a statement element of building architecture. Thanks to their broad utilisation options, there are countless ways of adopting them into your everyday life. How can you use them?

Reducing the sunrays by adding shadow to space can transform your overheated patio into an oasis of relaxation. It will definitely help reduce the summer heat increase up to almost 80 per cent for windows facing eastward and westward.

It’s a great way to protect the furniture from quick wear-out. Exposed to the sun and other weather conditions, furniture tends to lose its original colour faster.

Awnings are a great weather protection for any window frames, as they prevent the sun, rain or snow from getting in.

They are a great way to get extra privacy in your space, whether they’re used to shade your windows from the prying eyes of neighbours or your patio for rest or recreation.

Thanks to the simplicity and very user-friendly design of Shades Awning’s products, you can move your awning out and back in whenever you please. You can leave them out to cast shade on your space all year long or opt for their benefits only a few days a year. Regardless of your needs, we give you a broad choice of materials, patterns and colours to match the exterior design of your building within your prefered budget.
