Awning accessories

When it comes to accessorizing your awning, there is a diverse range of options available to cater to your specific needs. From ambient LED lighting to cozy infrared heaters, we're here to guide you through some of the enticing choices.

Express Yourself with Coloured Cassettes

Many of our awnings offer the opportunity to customize the colour of the cassette, providing a chance to either contrast or harmonize with its surroundings. Common colours such as grey, black, and white offer a functional aesthetic that seamlessly blends into any environment.

However, models like the markilux MX-3 and Weinor Semina Life take customization a step further, allowing you to alter not only the colour of the cassette but also the end caps. This option presents an opportunity to match your awning's fabric or introduce a contrasting pop of colour. A prime example is this striking combination of a sulphur yellow and grey cassette paired with a matching sulphur yellow canopy.

Extend Your Comfort with Infrared Heaters

Our range of infrared heaters provides the warmth you need to enjoy the outdoors even when the sun has set. Patio awnings accompanied by a heater are used more frequently, allowing you to extend your alfresco lifestyle into the cooler hours.

Embrace the Elements with Wind and Rain Sensors

Given the UK's unpredictable weather, having an awning equipped with wind and rain sensors is ideal. These intelligent features enable your awning to automatically retract or extend in response to rain or sun. However, for the longevity of your all-weather awning, we recommend retracting it when not in use. To ensure your awning lasts as long as possible, a little care goes a long way.

Control at Your Fingertips: Remote-Controlled or Crank Handle

The functionality of your awning can adapt to the unique constraints and preferences of your space. If convenience is key, opt for a remote-controlled awning—it automatically retracts or extends based on weather conditions. Even if you're indoors and remember you left your awning out, with a simple click, you can retract it without leaving your room. However, if you're dealing with a smaller awning or prefer manual control, a crank handle offers the freedom to adjust your awning to your desired extent.

Illuminate Your Space: LED Lighting

To extend the enjoyment of your outdoor space into the twilight hours, consider the addition of LED lighting. This can come in the form of an LED strip with multiple lights, which can be affixed either to the retracted cassette or the end of the extended awning. Additionally, you can opt for LED spotlights that neatly fold in when the awning is retracted, offering flexible illumination for specific areas as evening approaches.

More than Shade: Additional Valance

An added valance—stretch of fabric running down the front of the awning—offers more than just aesthetic appeal. It serves as an extra layer of shade, shelter, and privacy. A motorized valance can be extended or retracted at your command, providing customisable coverage. With select models from the Weinor brand, side shelters can also be installed, functioning like a wind break for added protection from sun and wind.
