Awnings are energy savers with 8-15 degrees cooling capability. They reduce solar heat gain up to 65% on south-facing windows and 77% on west-facing windows. Since awning fabric does not trap heat and moisture, an awning can reduce air conditioning costs by as much as 25%!

SHADE IS IN OUR ROOTS
Everyone loves the sun, but too much sun is not a good thing. It contributes to skin cancer, increasing electric bills during summer and fades drapes, carpets, and upholstery. Solar protection is the art and science of controlling the harmful effects of the sun, and Manchester Awning has been an industry leader for over 66 years!
Did you know the Skin Cancer Foundation recommends Sunbrella Awnings as part of an aid in the prevention of skin cancer?
