“If function were the leading reason for making shading decisions, exterior shading devices would win every time.”  If you’re looking for sun protection for those days you want to relax outside, Rolltec™ Awnings offers you exceptional quality and innovative design. Eliminate the sun’s glare and UV exposure while instantly creating another room for your home—and one with a view!


UV Protection

Awnings offer excellent protection from harmful UV rays. The fabrics have been proven to provide up 98% protection from the sun’s harmful effects. With this protection you will be able to be cool and comfortable on the sunniest days of the summer.


Energy Savings

Installing an awning on your home or business will keep your energy costs down by blocking the sun’ heat. Studies by the American Society of Heating and Air Conditioning Engineers confirm that an awning can reduce heat gain by 55 – 65% on a south facing window and 70 – 77% on western exposures.
Having an awning will allow you to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors by not having to close blinds or draw your drapes.  

With a Rolltec™ Awning, command of the bright outdoors is yours.


Rolltec™ Awnings are designed, manufactured, and assembled in Canada. Their elegance and durability are creditable to the time-proven traditions of European and North American technology, superior workmanship, and top quality materials.

Manual Override


Power outages happen. Not being able to use your motorized awning because your power is out is inconvenient. Having a manual override allows you to extend and retract your motorized awning with the use of a conventional crank. This option comes standard on most Okanagan Screens™ installations.

Retractable Valance


The Retractable Front Valance is a smart solution for where extra sun protection or privacy at the front of the awning is desired.

Side Curtains


Side Curtain is an additional fabric panel attached on hooks fitted to the sides of the front bar and installation bar. The Side Curtains are designed for extra sun protection and privacy.
