Hear what some of our satisfied customers have to say:

“Great company to work with . . . . We purchased one of their awnings 12 years ago and use it regularly during warm weather (maybe 6 months out of the year). The mechanism and fabric held up great…If you're in the market for an awning, you should definitely check out ERS.” – Cynthia S., San Jose, CA

Quality Like This Adds Value to Your Home.

Your ERS Shading retractable awning is a pretty valuable investment.

In fact, installing an electric awning for your deck, patio, pool/spa area, garage, outdoor kitchen or other exterior space can add serious value to your home.

Our retractable awnings are fully customized for your home with your choice of colors and size. To increase the durability of the awnings, our elegant protective shell adds to the lifetime of the awning.

From beginning to end, you get a quality awning that is truly a European Rolling Shutters standard.

7 Benefits of a Retractable Awning for your Deck or Patio:

  • Add instant, massive value to your home…at the press of a button!
  • Transform your outdoor area into a cool, enjoyable retreat
  • Extend your awning without obstructing your view. Your awning comes with freestanding arms, not poles or stands that get in the way. It’s hardly noticeable when stored away.
  • We source our fabrics from Sunbrella, the leader in performance fabrics for over 50 years.
    … which also means you get their 10-year limited warranty on their fabrics.
  • The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends Sunbrella and awnings. Protect your skin and your family even while you enjoy your outdoor space!
  • Stainless steel connecting parts add to the life and usefulness of your awning. You get a reliably firm awning thanks to individual suspended springs that maximize the elasticity in the folding arms.
  • Using your awning is incredibly easy. Choose from manual crank-controlled awnings or motorized awnings to fit your own preferences.

Your ERS awning goes beyond home style by saving you money on energy consumption.

A PAMA Energy Study also showed awnings can reduce annual cooling energy 64-80% for homes in San Francisco.

This same study by PAMA also found awnings INCREASE heating costs in colder months as they block natural heat gains when they are extended - another reason to invest in a retractable awning that can be collapsed in colder months!

That study is backed by further evidence from larger, independent organizations:

ASHRAE (the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air-Condition Engineers) show that an awning reduces solar gain by 72-77% on western exposures, reducing home cooling energy consumption by up to 60%.

The US Department of Energy report solar heat gain reductions of 65-77% from Awning usage
