Frequently Asked Questions

A wind sensor will send a signal to your motor to retract the awning when the wind gets too much. Once set, it will automatically protect your awning from potential damage during storms and in case of unpredictable weather, giving you one less thing to worry about!
At Awning Depot each product is custom made. Call us, tell us what you need, and we will find the best option, tailor-made to your building, suitable for its function and design.
The awning can be a minimum of 2.2 metres and the maximum of 6 metres. If you need an awning wider than 6 metres, please call us to discuss it.

The best guideline for this is to ensure that there is enough headroom and that any surrounding doors or windows can fully open when the awning is extended. We would recommend 20 cm clearance above door frames and an installation height of 2.5-3.5 metres.
