Awning Screens An Affordable Way To Elegantly Screen Your Awning
Awning Screen Applications
Click any image to enlarge We offer high quality affordable netting screens for awnings. Awning screens are one of our easiest applications, but ONLY for fixed awnings. We custom-loom marine grade quality netting. It is tough and will not fade. While we offer other colors, black is crystal clear to see through and the preferred choice. We also carry a no-see-um mesh and a shade mesh that will also block flying insects. To give you an idea on price, an awning that is 10ft out 16ft across and 9ft tall would cost about $606 + shipping.
Example: Fixed Canvas Topped Awning Screens
Most fixed awnings have a canvas top that ties to a metal frame. With this type of attachment surface, neither Velcro® tape nor tracking attachments will work, so we can place grommets every 12 inches that you can zip tie to your bar. Although the roof line of the awning may be pitched, most awnings have an additional horizontal bar providing a continuous level hanging surface for rectangular curtain panels. If the hanging surface is in fact sloped, we will cut the pitch.
Aluminum Top Awning Screens
These are best attached using an outside hang with Velcro® tape attachment. the adhesive backed Velcro needs to be applied horizontally just above the peak of a scallop. In addition, we need to protect the netting from rubbing against the bottom edge of the scallop, that over time, is like a knife edge.
We have a special little trick for these where we sew a very heavy 4 inch binding to the top of the curtain that can withstand the sharp edge. You will need to call in this order and simply tell us you have a "Scalloped aluminum awning."
Why Not Retractable Awnings?
There is no good way to do a retractable awning and still be able to open and close the awning. We've tried, we've even brought one into the shop to test. Each time you retract the awning, you have to completely remove the netting. Round trip for removing and rehanging is about 30 minutes. I promise, you will be wasting your money and will want to throw yourself off a cliff in frustration..
