If you love laid back outdoor living, and appreciate having instant shade when you need it, then these contemporary awnings are well worth checking out.
Precision German engineering is at the heart of the Haus awning, which provides outside shade in your garden or on your patio. The high tech nature of the design means that you don’t even have to put the awning out yourself – it has built in weather sensors which will automatically extend the awning when the sun comes out and retract it if the wind gets up.
The awning will take you from day to night and, thanks to other technological features, you won’t be benighted or get cold. For example, there’s built in LED lighting and radio controlled infrared heating, making it ideal for evening barbecues or drinks on the deck.
The Haus garden awnings are available from Appeal Shading.
