Canvas window awnings have been among the standard awnings used for houses windows since time immemorial. These awnings are the shades that will prevent sunlight from entering the house through the window and protect interior furniture and appliances from fading with its UV rays. The good news is that there are now many canvas window awnings offered by manufacturers in the market. If you plan to get these awnings for your home you may want to know the following to give you an idea about what you will get from these awnings and your options in the market. 1. You will find a wide array of frame designs and colors to choose from. There are those that can have much detailed designs in terms of its edge fabrics. Some awnings on the other hand can have very simple frames and use lesser fabric.
Most awnings on the side of the vehicle are 2.5 metres x 2 metres or 2 metres by 2 metres. The longer side is usually the one running length ways along your vehicle so make sure you measure to see which is going to sit the best. These things are great and incredibly cheap. In fact you can get a good quality one for under $300 and fit it in around an hour. 4WD Awnings are designed to be set up by one person and very quickly. The procedure normally involves unzipping the case un-clipping the supports rolling the awning out and standing the legs up. The legs are incorporated inside the aluminium frame that the awning rolls out of. Stand them up attach the supports and if it is windy put a few pegs in the ground with guy ropes going to the awning.
