Summer is fast approaching and the team at Plantation Shutters are thrilled to have announced the launch our stunning new awnings range! We have a brilliant selection of different awning choices on offer for any need your outdoor space may have, so if you’re dreaming up the perfect addition to your property exteriors then awnings are the ideal choice for you. Here are 5 ways that awnings will help boost for your outdoor spaces this summer.
Shade from the sun
It’s quintessentially British to squeeze every moment of sunshine out of a day when it makes an appearance. After all, now that our weather is more changeable than ever before, why shouldn’t we! When the height of summer hits however, and the sun becomes a little more intense, there’s no shame in seeking out those all-important shaded areas to still enjoy the beautiful weather whilst keeping yourself and your family a little cooler and protected from UV rays... that’s where your awning comes in.
Being able to selectively shade and portion off your outdoor areas will give you the freedom to cover from the sun as you need, keeping you comfortable outdoors all day long without the hassle of temperamental umbrellas or cowering under trees. With the simple touch of a button, your awning will come to your rescue and offer that much needed shade.
Protect from rain showers
Many of us know all too well the panicked dash that unwelcomed moody skies bring when the threat of a sudden downpour brings an abrupt end to a BBQ or afternoon dinner party. Well fear no more with awnings on hand to save the day. Your awning will provide the light coverage you need against such showers so the party doesn’t need to stop to wait for the rain to pass through. Having an awning opens up your exteriors for more of the year so you'll be a fair weather lounger no more as your exteriors will be far more appealing for more of the year.
Wind safe sensors react to increased of gusts of a particular speed and so your awning will automatically retract to protect your home and the awning product when needed.
