Enjoy Outdoor Living with Luxaflex Retractable Awnings

Whether you want to bask in the warmth of summer without the scorch of the sun or you’re seeking a cosy nook shielded from the changeable UK weather, Luxaflex retractable awnings offer more than just shade.

Enjoy your garden at any time

A Luxaflex retractable awning provides a cool area to relax in on sunny days. It also protects you from light drizzle and wind. An awning creates another area for you to enjoy in your garden, essentially extending the space you have in your home without the hassle and expense of building an extension.

Health benefits

Most of us love the sun – but getting too much of it is bad for your health. From minor complaints like eye strain in bright sunlight through to skin damage, protection from UV rays is vital. Luxaflex retractable awnings allow you and your family to stay protected in the summer months, while still enjoying the outdoors.

Energy savings

When installed over a south-facing window, a Luxaflex retractable awning keeps your rooms from getting too hot in the summer. That means in the warmer months, there’ll be less requirement for fans or air conditioning units. By helping you control the temperature in your home – without using a constant flow of electricity – a Luxaflex retractable awning can contribute towards the lowering of your energy bills.

Protect your furniture and belongings

An awning can protect some of the furniture inside your house, depending on where you install it. Long-term exposure to UV rays can cause fading and bleaching of carpets, upholstery, and other soft furnishings. And on those famously changeable April days, a Luxaflex retractable awning protects your garden furniture too. There’s no need to rush to get the garden furniture cushions in – your favourite seat stays dry beneath your awning.

Privacy from prying eyes

In overlooked gardens or busy residential areas, a Luxaflex retractable awning provides some much-needed privacy when you’re spending time outdoors. Awnings installed over your windows also provide some extra privacy within your home in the evenings, without the need to close your curtains or blinds.

Something to suit every home and garden

With so many Luxaflex retractable awnings available, there’s options for every taste. Opt for plain fabrics if you prefer an understated look or go wild with jacquard prints and bold stripes. Our awnings are made to measure, so you have the freedom to make it your own. Get style advice from our friendly team at Littlehampton Blinds.

Make your awning work for you

These extras can be added to your Luxaflex retractable awning to make it even better.

All-weather solutions: lighting and heating

Awnings are not just for the summer months! In the springtime, the evenings lengthen but the temperature drops. With a built-in heater, you can stay out in your garden even when the chill creeps in. And when the clocks go back in the autumn, integrated lighting systems allow you to enjoy your garden for longer – maybe snuggled up with a blanket and a warm drink.

Respond to changes in the weather

Sun and wind sensors can be added to your Luxaflex retractable awning. When the sun comes out, your awning automatically opens to shade your patio, garden, window, balcony or wherever you choose to install it. And when the weather suddenly changes, built-in wind sensors automatically retract your awning to protect it from weather damage.

Frequently asked questions

Are Luxaflex retractable awnings expensive?

We have a range of models to suit every budget. The price of your awning depends on the size and type, as well as the extras you’d like included. Visit us at our showroom for more information or contact us here.

Can a retractable awning be left open in the rain?

While your awning can protect you from showers and light drizzle, we don’t recommend leaving it out in extreme weather conditions like heavy rain, hail, or snow. Snow and heavy rain can pool on your awning and cause damage to the internal mechanisms. Keeping tabs on your awning and retracting it when required ensures it’ll stay looking vibrant for those times you want to use it.

Should I choose a motorised retractable awning?

Both motorised and manual retractable awnings serve the same purpose, it just depends how you’d like it to work. To close a manual retractable awning, you usually wind a shaft clockwise or counter clockwise to open or close your awning. On the other hand, a motorised retractable awning often has telescopic arms and can be controlled by the push of a button.

If convenience is important to you, we recommend choosing a motorised awning. Plus, if you opt to include a wind sensor, a motorised awning can protect itself from the elements without you having to micro-manage and check on the weather constantly.
