Putting awnings in motion is our specialty. Patio awnings are typically gear-operated but motorizing awnings are easy and open up an entirely new realm of possibilities.


Protect yourself and your family from harmful UV rays and add shady comfort to your deck or patio effortlessly and instantaneously. Motorized retractable awnings allow you to enjoy sunlight or shade, and will convienently extend or retract at the touch of a button or automatically, depending on the weather. Our motors are engineered by Somfy, the world’s leading manufacturer of tubular motors that holds more than 4 decades of engineering and designing products to suit today’s solar control demands.
