Top quality award winning awnings with a long service life.  Markilux and Gibus  are winners of  prestigious IF design awards, each manufacturer has a range of retractable arm awnings, drop awnings and screens which are bespoke and made to order.

Retractable arm awnings are available in full cassette (ie the fabric is totally enclosed when the awning is retracted), half cassette ( top of the fabric is covered) , and open awnings (no cover when retracted) usually used under a balcony or when installed in a box type enclosure/niche.

We supply & instal top quality Infra Red heating units by Tansun and Herschel Infrared. These are generally fitted under the awning.  Infrared heaters heat objects rather than air, provide instant heat and maximise the enjoyment of the under awning space especially in the evenings and cooler days.
