Awning Ideas / February 18, 2019 / Katelyn Mooney
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.
By controlling sunlight you ll find yourself getting more use out of the amenities and spaces you already own: poolside deck balcony patio; grill gazebo outdoor bar hot tub. But there s more. Awnings act as an extension of your home adding square footage to your home or commercial building. They allow you to expand the look and feel of your interior into the outdoors serving as an architectural addition but without the typical costs. No contractor or expensive installation is required. In the residential setting this results in outdoor space for entertaining relaxing and eating. In the business setting it means additional room to seat patrons serve customers or hold meetings. In both cases the "outdoor rooms" end up adding value to the business or home. On top of this awnings result in direct energy savings. Installed strategically they make the inside of a building up to 15 degrees cooler cutting direct sunlight and shading windows.
Retractable awnings allow you to have fun outside without getting burnt by the sun or overheating. They let you create a comfortable space outdoors to enjoy in the summertime. Patio awnings as well as those on porches and decks make it possible to eat a meal outdoors or sit in the shade where there would normally be none. Awnings keep you cool without having to spend a lot of money. In fact retractable awnings can actually save you money on energy costs by cooling your home. Because awnings block the sun s rays and cool your home you won t need the air conditioner as much and energy costs will go down. Plus you re helping out the environment. Retractable awnings also protect furniture and carpets from fading due to excessive sun exposure. Patio awnings protect windows and doors from weather damage and provide shelter and protection when you leave the house especially on rainy days. Stand under the patio awning while you open your umbrella or wait to be let into the house by someone inside.
