Don’t let the cooler evenings deter you from enjoying your outdoor space. Installing patio heaters under your awning or pergola can extend those pleasant evenings by providing a warm, inviting glow, making your space usable throughout the night and into the cooler months.

2. Lighting Solutions

Adding lighting to your awning or pergola can transform your outdoor area into a welcoming space usable at any time of the day. Opt for ambient lighting to create a soft glow for evening gatherings or brighter options for functional spaces where tasks are performed.

3. Somfy Sun and Wind Sensor

This sensor does double duty by protecting your awning from high winds and automatically extending it when the sun shines. It protects your awning from sudden high winds by automatically retracting it when wind speeds exceed a safe level. A dual-function sensor, it also makes sure that you always have shade when you need it, without any hassle.
