The sunny weather is on its way, which means now is the perfect time to start thinking about garden awnings.

While there are plenty of different types of patio covers and patio sun shades, we are here to tell you why you should choose awnings as your outdoor shade unit.

Benefits of Having a Patio / Garden Awning

  • Further use of your garden: Retractable awnings provide you with further use in your garden, no matter the time of year. Whether you are after some shade from the sun, or somewhere to hide away from the rain, simply extend your cassette awning and relax.
  • Easy to fold away: Meanwhile, during those times when you don’t need to use your retractable awning, you can simply keep it folded away.
  • Protects from sun damage: If you have paintings or furniture that you are worried will experience sun damage, then there is no need to worry. Extending your awning will help prevent sunlight from entering your home.
  • Ideal for commercial use: For people who own pubs, cafe’s and coffee shops, owning a domestic awning provides your customer with the extra option of sitting outside, to enjoy the lovely weather or to smoke. Meanwhile, during those times when the weather turns rough, the retractable patio awning can be folded away, looking neat and tidy on your shop.

What are Semi-Cassette Awnings?

Semi-cassette awnings are highly similar in the respect that the awning folds away inside the cassette, to ensure that it is protected from any damage, however the valence remains outside of the cassette and the arms fold down, below the awning.

What are Full Cassette Awnings?

Full cassette awnings are ideal to use all year round, whether in sun or rain.

Meanwhile, when they are not in use, they can be fully folded away in the cassette so they won’t get damaged.

Difference Between Semi-Cassette & Full Cassette Awnings?

At ART Blinds, the difference between our full cassette awnings and semi-cassette awnings, is both the size and the actual design of the awnings in the way they fold away.

Semi or Full Cassette Awnings?

Ultimately, the decision between a semi or a full cassette awning installation is all dependant on how much space you have in your garden and on the appearance you are after.

Where Can my Awning be Fitted?

At ART Blinds, we offer retractable patio awnings to offer weather protection while you are spending time in the garden. When purchasing canvas awnings you also have the option to have motorised cassette awnings.

Meanwhile, you can also have an awning over your front door, ideal for shop fronts.
