Take A Vacation In Your Own Backyard
NuImage retractable awnings allow you to entertain on your deck or patio any time of day. Our awnings will enhance the beauty of your home and increase your outdoor living space. By adding a retractable awning, you’ll have the option of sun when you want it and shade when you need it. More importantly, a NuImage retractable awning will provide protection for you and your family from the harmful U.V. rays of the sun while protecting your home and its furnishings..
Take into account sun angle throughout the day when determining size, so your area is protected during the periods of expected use. For very large areas, multiple awnings will perform better in windy conditions than one very large one. When practical, use more awnings to cover the space required.
When fully open, the arms will be slightly folded to improve performance and strength. You may also use the awning with it partially open so it's a good idea is to design the seating area a little short of the full extension of the awning for maximum shade and usability.
