Here in the Sunshine State we have a love hate relationship with the sun. On cold, rainy days we long for the return of the warm rays of the sun and on hot summer days we seek relief from the heat and damaging rays. Retractable awnings allow homeowners to instantly shade their outdoor living areas from the harsh sun at the touch of a button.
Retractable awnings featuring Sunbrella fabrics have been tested and proven to provide up to 98% UV protection from harmful effects of the sun when used in shade applications. Lighter colors provide less protection than darker colors which have more depth of color. This UV protective factor is inherent to the product and will not be reduced by usage or exposure to the sun.
Sunbrella® brand fabrics hold the “Seal of Recommendation” by The Skin Cancer Foundation, an international organization dedicated to the prevention of skin cancer. The Seal signifies that Sunbrella fabrics have passed the Foundation’s rigorous testing criteria and offer significant levels of sun protection. To earn the Seal, a manufacturer must prove that its product sufficiently and safely “aids in the prevention of sun-induced damage to the skin.”
These Sawgrass Country Club homeowners had a newly renovated patio with a beautiful pool. The midday sun was so strong they were unable to relax and enjoy their outdoor living area. The installation of (4) retractable awnings with Sunbrella fabric “Era Indigo” allows our clients to control how much sun protection they desire. We designed the unit covering near the pool steps to project 10’ 6” to provide shade while in the shallow end of the pool.
