About Rolltec™ Fabrics

How would you like to be able to extend or retract your awning with a touch of a button? Choose from hand-held remote control or wall-switch operation.
The sun sensor automatically extends the awning when light/heat setting reach a certain point. The wind sensor automatically retracts the awning when wind speeds exceed the preset limits.
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.
The Retractable Front Valance is a smart solution for where extra sun protection or privacy at the front of the awning is desired.
