Retractable Fabric Awnings
Lateral arm retractable awnings are heavy-duty freestanding awnings with scissor type arms designed to provide shade on demand with no supports to the ground or angling back to the house, unlike those cheap camper and rv type rollup awnings. A lateral arm retractable awning is a fabric covered electro-mechanical device that takes more abuse over a longer period of time than just about any other homeowner's exterior product. These awnings are outside 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and subjected to rain, sleet, snow, freezing, thawing and wind. There are some good quality retractable awnings in the marketplace manufactured with superior components for strength and durability. Unfortunately, there are also a number of retractable awnings manufactured with low quality components imported from the Orient that will last just a few years. Some awning companies buy individual components from their suppliers and assemble them to make up a frame. Some suppliers sell the frame already assembled to awning companies and the awning company makes and installs their own cover. The customer's source of knowledge on how their retractable awning is going to be manufactured, especially the frame, is the best way to determine the quality, strength and durability. At Color Brite Awning Company, we order the retractable awning direct from the manufacture completely assembled with the cover already installed, the way it was intended to be. This assures you the utmost in quality control with the least amount of exposure to you should things not go as planned.
