WATERPROOF AWNINGS

How our waterproof retractable rain awnings work

It is a common misconception that waterproof awnings are different to ‘regular’ awnings. A waterproof awning is simply a folding arm awning set to an appropriate pitch (angle) to ensure when either there is a persistent rain shower or a sudden heavy downpour that water runs off the material and does not pool on the fabric. Of course, a waterproof awning needs to be equipped with a high-quality material suitably treated to ensure the water does not absorb in the fibres and if a folding arm type awning that the arms can withstand the additional load the rainwater will create.

All Caribbean brand awnings are constructed from the highest quality materials, using super-strong extruded aluminium for the framework, hi-tensile double coiled springs and stainless steel cables or belts for the tensioning devices along with exclusive CBA fabrics from Sattler treated with the unique TEXgard coating, which offers outstanding water repellency (similar to that of a marine boat cover) along with preventing dirt adhering to the surface.

When our patio awnings are set with a pitch of 14 degrees (or greater) which corresponds with a slope of 25cm per metre, which is determined by the European Directive that all electric awnings must adhere to, water does not pool on the fabric, it simply runs off, with the added advantage, thanks to the unique TEXgard coating that our materials are impregnated with, that the rainwater takes all surface dirt and debris off with it, generating a self-clean effect. So not only do our rain awnings protect you from the wet weather, they clean themselves at the same time – clever!

Pergola awnings due to running on a fixed framework which offers additional rigidity can be equipped with a lesser slope, as little as 15cm fall per metre projection, whilst still ensuring rainwater will run off and thanks to the combination of the fabric being locked within the side guides and a grill to the inside of the leadrail, water runs down the fabric, into the leadrail out water evacuation points at each end of the leadrail into the supporting posts and exits from the bottom of the posts.

At survey, our knowledgeable surveyors will discuss with you the use and requirements of your awning, ensuring the correct awning is specified, manufactured and installed with the optimum pitch to meet your needs.

Patio Awning Reviews

110 out of a 100

I am writing to say how lucky I was to select Caribbean Blinds to carry out the project at my house. The team were brilliant a nice group of lads and so friendly. Your office staff were great also. Had the 1st-floor awning out all afternoon as was streaming into my study. Overall 110 out of a 100… well impressed. And that is not easy to achieve from me.

Cobbold - Winchester

Very professional

The 3 gentlemen were very professional and did very well to protect the patio walking glass and tiles, despite dreadful weather. I am very happy with their job, and I am looking forward to trying it out once we are getting the scorching sun!

Zhou - Fulham

Highly recommend Caribbean Blinds

Excellent customer care and service from all aspects. Quick job and good quality product. I would highly recommend Caribbean Blinds.

Loizou - London

Wonderful efficient local company

We are very happy with our new Cuba awning and may it provide us with many years of pleasure. Your workmen were very polite, tidy and contentious, with the right amount of being sociable. Totally happy with everything from beginning to end. I know it was quite long winded but we needed to be completely happy that we was choosing the right product as it is a lot of money and there are so many people on the internet selling for a lot less. Thanks once again and we will certainly spread the word when our neighbours see it about your wonderful efficient local company.

Bates - Suffolk

Everything we hoped for

The canopy is everything we hoped for and came in use for the first time this weekend when we had a dinner party. We were able to sit outside until the guests departed at 2 am! Your company has been very professional throughout, at each stage and with all your staff. Even better that it’s British. I would recommend you to anyone who asked.

Henson - Woodford Green

Pleased and impressed

We are both very pleased and impressed with the installation of our awning and the professional way in which you and your team processed our order in such a short space of time. We used it for the first time today, a far cry from gazebos and parasols and looking forward to many more hours of sophisticated comfort. Many thanks for a great service and product.

Buck - Suffolk

Very happy with the product

Very happy with the product and the fitters – everything went very smoothly and the awning looks great.

Boaler - Harpenden

Very impressed with the service

I am very happy with the awning, it has given our courtyard a wonderful feel, plus will provide the shade we need. I have been very impressed with the service your company has provided, right from meeting you at Grand Designs to the fitting today by two great guys who done a lovely job.

Pooley - Essex

Efficiently, and pleasantly handled

From start to finish the process was very straight forward, both efficiently, and pleasantly handled. The installers were very pleasant, good at their job and neat and tidy. I couldn’t fault them, they are a credit to your company. The product seems of good quality, albeit it is very early days yet.
