BENEFITS OF A RETRACTABLE AWNING FOR YOUR DECK OR PATIO:

RETRACTABLE

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.

MOTORIZED OR CRANK-BASED

Using your awning is incredibly easy. Choose from manual crank-controlled awnings or motorized awnings to fit your own preferences.

COMFORT

Transform your outdoor or indoor area into a cool, enjoyable retreat.

10-YEAR WARRANTY*

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.

DURABLE

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.

SKIN CANCER FOUNDATION RECOMMENDED

The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends Sunbrella and retractable roll awnings. Protect your skin and your family even while you enjoy your outdoor space!

Awnings Can Reduce Energy Costs up to 80%

Awnings Can Reduce Energy Costs by up to 80%

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!

View the San Francisco Awning Study

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
