In this particular case Big almost certainly was Better!
The clients of this modern villa wanted to gain a large area of shaded terrace without comprising the architectural design of the property. This meant covering more than 7 metres in width with a single awning.
All the parts of this awning, wall fittings, brackets, tensioning arms, motor etc. are all specifically sized to support the forces involved in maintaining such a large surface area of fabric.
This?Automated Awning is operated by one-touch remote control?and includes a discreet movement sensor which retracts the awning into its casing before adverse weather can cause any damage.
