Retractable Awnings Help You Enjoy the Outside in Any Weather

Eclipse Retractable AwningApril showers bring May flowers and sadly, strong rains can ruin your patio furniture, interrupt a barbecue and force you to quickly move your party indoors. Retractable awnings are a great way to take the edge off the weather.

Retractable awnings make sure your patio stays dry in the rain and keeps you in the shade during the summer. Even more importantly, retractable awnings can dramatically increase your patio outdoor living space. They even help reduce energy costs by blocking the sun from getting to your windows. And, if it’s too windy, motorized retractable awnings have sensors that tell them to retract to make sure your awning stays in working condition for years to come.

Solar shades and other shading systems are a great way of reducing energy costs and blocking the sun so you can comfortably enjoy your outdoor living space. Patio shades are perfect for providing privacy to your gathering or family. These solar shades block 90-95 percent of all harmful UV rays, which will keep your family cool and safe at the same time.

If you’re looking for a solution for indoor sunlight, Eclipse Shading Systems has you covered inside as well! Interior solar shades are a perfect choice for home owners and business owners alike. These allow you to block out the sun while still giving you the flexibility of pulling a chain to let in more light. Roller shades are perfect for keeping glare off the TV and making a space feel larger while still blocking out the sun and heat. They diffuse the light instead of refracting it all over the place like normal blinds would.

Eclipse Shading Systems has been a leading manufacturer of retractable awnings for years. Using only the highest quality materials on all of our shading systems, Eclipse retractable awnings are among the most durable mechanisms on the market today. Shades and awnings come in a wide variety of colors so that you get a tasteful look for your home or business. Add style and color to the atmosphere of your room or patio to impress friends and customers alike!
