Awnings are often an important element in the exterior of a home or business during the winter and fall seasons. That’s why we at A&A Awnings and Storm Shutters want to tell you which are the best awnings to avoid rain and sun and also offer a series of tips for the care of your awnings.
Among the awnings for rain and wind, let’s start with awnings that repel water. Because there is nothing worse than not being able to enjoy an outdoor space when temperatures are less pleasant. Even for summer storms, this type of choice is the most appropriate.
Awning to protect from rain
The retractable awning from A&A Awnings and Storm Shutters is the best choice when it comes to accomplishing this goal. When looking for waterproof awnings for terraces and balconies not only want quality and aesthetics, but also a good functional drive system.
It is a modular system and is operated by gas pistons. Therefore, you will have no problem when it is completely flat. And as for its purpose, it is beyond any doubt.
On the one hand, it is a waterproof canvas awning, so it can perfectly withstand the fall of water without having to suffer the classic wear of other types. A fabric especially suitable for these cases: a totally appropriate choice and designed for these annoying situations. It is even an awning for heavy rains, given its composition and resistance.
It can be placed in the garden itself, as the name indicates, but also in other kinds of places in the home. As it is especially suitable for all kinds of spaces, it is also ideal when you are looking for how to cover a balcony from the rain.
Vertical awnings for terraces
The stor vertical awning acts fantastically as that windbreak if we want to get out of the more “classic” installation. It is lowered by two aluminum guides and its fastening system makes it stay stretched. In this way, it would also function as a lateral windbreak, especially indicated, without a doubt, in the case of terraces.
It is important to emphasize that, sometimes, it is also combined with a sliding one, so that also the upper part of the place is protected. Thus a structure is formed based on the two types.
How much wind can an awning withstand?
One of the big questions (and fears) when installing one of them, is what we can withstand. That is one of the many advantages of a motorized awning that are related to automating, not only the opening and closing, but also its safety mechanism, but it is not only the only benefit. Thus, awnings for windy areas will be more protected and you will have more peace of mind.
How to reinforce an awning
How to put the awning on when it is very windy? Well, apart from the best solution is the sensor, you have to take into account that there are other elements that serve as reinforcement of wind-resistant awnings. As for example: straps and pegs. This will help to reinforce the awning in case of suffering sudden movements by storms.
In the event that what you are looking for is to increase the protection of this element, one of the options that is increasingly sought is to accompany it with glazing. Thus, the veranda awning offers an excellent result regardless of the climate.
