The California awning is our medium-duty standard patio retractable awning. The design and operational use is simple and recognized for its affordability. The retractable is fully assembled and includes a standard manual operation controlled by a rocker arm/hand crank. The awning does not include a cassette or a hood. This was specifically designed for the purpose of showing off the qualities and mechanisms of the awning as it operates. The framework includes a heavy-duty steel and aluminum white powder-coated frame. It retracts and expands with multi chambered, stainless steel, and dual-cabled lateral projection arms.
The fabric is constructed of Beauty-Mark brand 100% solution-dyed acrylic fabric. Each fabric includes resistant coatings to help:
- Prevent fading from the harsh UV sun rays
- Resist potential soil and mildew build-up
- Provide a water resistant barrier that allows for water runoff
- Offered in three stripe fabric colors: linen and white, forest and white, and gray and white.
Each retractable awning includes our standard Sahara style 10 inch valance that can be used all year round as well as removed and stored away until the next season. Installation simply requires mounting of the brackets followed by securing the awning into the brackets. The awning may be installed on many different surface types such as brick, stucco, wood, stone and many others. The mounting of the brackets is a quick step-by-step process when following our installation manual.
Each Awntech awning is designed to be installed by DIYers constructing a DIY (Do It Yourself) project. Needless to say, this does not exclude contractors or professional installers. Awntech guarantees high quality and ensures that each retractable awning is hand-crafted to have a long-lasting durable design and structure.
