The Benefits of Sun Awnings To Your Lifestyle - www.sunawningsonline.co.uk
A look at all the benefits associated with installing a sun awning
If so, then it is worthwhile considering installing a high quality retractable patio sun awning from http://www.sunawningsonline.co.uk.
With one of our high quality sun awning installed onto your home you can turn that hot outdoor area into a cool shaded entertaining area in less time than you might think and for less expense than a conservatory.
By installing an automatic awning you can simply sit back, press the remote control and stop the awning when the desired amount of shade has been achieved. This means that you can enjoy your outdoor space for longer than normal.
High quality sun awnings are constructed from strong aluminium retractable arms that support the fabric when extended out from the wall. These arms are held firm under tension allowing them to take the weight of the fabric. When the awning is closed, the arms simply hinge like an elbow to allow the awning material to roll back up into the cassette.
With awnings becoming more and more popular, manufacturers now offer a wide range of fabric colours and fabric designs allowing the homeowner to pick the fabric that best suits their homes architectural styling. Fabrics can also be specified to be waterproof, meaning the awning can not only provide a cool shaded area but can also act as a valuable shelter during those all to frequent summer showers. Modern fabrics also benefit from offering UV protection.
Over exposure to UV rays has been proven to cause premature skin ageing, sun burn or in the worst case, skin cancer. Some fabrics have even been tested to deflect 99% of the suns UV rays equating to a sun cream protection factor of 50.
Available in a wide range of sizes, a sun awning is a very versatile addition to the home as it can provide shade to not only outdoor entertaining areas but also to any bright window or doorway.
By restricting the amount of sunlight entering the home you will be able to regulate the inside temperature of your house much easier. The lower levels of solar gain mean that the air conditioning does not have to work as hard to cool the home. This in turn will lead to reduced energy bills and a reduction in the impact on the environment from your homes carbon footprint.
Thanks to all the above factors, it is obvious to see why more and more homeowners are turning to a retractable awning to meet their lifestyle demands.
