The Richmond awning is our heavy-duty, double-sided, free-standing patio retractable awning. The design and operational use is unique and it is recognized for its wide span double-shade coverage. The retractable is fully assembled (with the exception of assembling the mounting stand) and operates with a standard manual operation controlled by a rocker arm / hand crank. This awning was designed for the purpose of providing additional shade in areas that are not close to a wall, soffit, or roof space. The Richmond is perfect for outdoor gatherings at events, games, tailgates, or simply in your backyard by the pool. The framework includes a heavy-duty steel and aluminum white powder-coated frame and powder-coated aluminum hood. 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 multiple solid and stripe fabric color.
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 the assembly of the stand, the mounting of the brackets followed by securing the awning into the brackets. The awning legs can be installed onto surface types such as concrete or masonry. The mounting of the brackets and the awning is a quick step-by-step process when following our installation manual.
Each Awntech awning is designed to be installed by DIY’ers 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.
