The primary purpose of an awning is to provide protection from sunlight and create new spaces. This is why if the system is not automated the awning should be retracted in the event of inclement weather – rain, snow, wind, etc.You should always check that there is nothing which might interfere with the opening and closing of the awning. Never force the awning. It is advisable to periodically check the condition of the awning with the services of an awning installation company.

Cleaning the awning: The awning should be vacuumed regularly in order to prevent the build-up of dust. If it needs to be cleaned more thoroughly, use a wet cloth and a small amount of soap (do not use abrasive or chemical products). Always follow the manufacturer’s recommendations to ensure that you will be able to enjoy your awning for as long as possible.
