Our Awnings

External awnings are becoming increasingly popular, often giving an extra area for seating/dining alfresco and offering a good shaded area from the summer sun. Although awnings should not be used as rain cover, our fabrics are shower-proof. A valance is an optional extra, as is under awning lighting and heating.

All awnings are UK manufactured & fully made to measure, including the brackets which if necessary are custom made for your installation.

Hardware: Corrosion resistant, powder coated, extruded aluminium framework, in three basic colours of white, brown or black

Stainless steel components – meaning rust free

Drop forged joints – meaning no weak points

Cable arms – stronger than chain arms, 4mm thick intertwined stainless steel cables (either quad or twin) which are encapsulated in PVC

Maintenance free

Operation – Awnings can be operated manually by way of a crank handle, or be fully motorised with a hand remote for operation. Optional extras include wind (recommended) and sun sensors, whereby the awning will automatically operate according to the current weather conditions.

Fabrics – Extensive range – all one price.

Colour co-ordinated thread and trims

TEXguard coating forms an invisible shield around each single fibre and provides unbeatable water repellence, excellent waterproof properties against:- oil, grease, mould & algae growth, industrial dust, vehicle fumes and other environmental influences.

UV rated 801 – the protection factor of Sattler awning fabrics shows the extent in which they increase the exposure of skin to sunlight. All the designs in the Sattler collection have been certified according to the stringent regulations of UV standard 801.

Fixings Resin & Stud – awnings exert a considerable amount of torque on the fixings that hold the brackets to the wall. Therefore we use resin & stud fixings for the majority of our awning installations. This gives the strongest fixing attainable and is considered the safest way to fix awnings to walls.

Guarantee All our awnings carry the CE mark and are guaranteed for a total of 5yrs from the date of installation. All accessories, such as lighting and heating are guaranteed for a total of 1yr from the date of installation.
