Our high quality custom motorized retractable awnings are designed to withstand winds up to 150 mph coastal wind load.
Keeping your motorized awning retracted during a storm is still best for the life of the product, so here’s some advice for retractable awnings and high winds.
Most importantly, our advice is to roll in the awning each night and be aware of the weather at all times so the awning is primarily used under proper and normal weather conditions.
When you’re away, nature may not cooperate, so there’s still protection when the awning encounters high winds.
Unlike cheap imported awnings, our retractable awning construction will withstand hurricane force winds to strict certified Florida standards.
The high quality is appropriate outside of Florida, also, and we ship awning kits to all 50 states in the USA.
If you are at home when a storm approaches, our advice is retracting the awning rather than test the hurricane rating.
Otherwise, we recommend an optional wind sensor system for your retractable awning to sense wind speed and automatically retract the awning to avoid potential high wind damage.
Keep in mind the wind sensor operates on electricity, so an emergency backup generator would be needed in case of a power outage.
Call or text 407-345-9283 with any questions about retractable awning sales and installation in Orlando and the surrounding Central Florida communities.
UPDATE: We now ship custom residential or commercial retractable screen and awning kits anywhere in the USA, and export kits, too.
