Solamark® fabric awnings

Would you like to enjoy your outside area and be protected from the harsh African sun? 

Extend your Solamark® fabric awning on a hot and sunny day, and retract it to enjoy stargazing at night. 

Our fixed awnings are perfect for doorways and windows, and our adjustable awnings provide shade and protection from the sun over patios, decks, and other outdoor living areas.

Never worry about the weather again! We can install automated control units to extend and retract your adjustable awnings depending on weather conditions.

Replace or recover an awning?

Do you have a fabric awning that has given you wonderful protection from the harsh sun over the years? Does it unfortunately look like you need a new one, or can the fabric be replaced, and the moving parts serviced?

If your awning is looking old and worn, when should it be repaired and when replaced? Unfortunately, there are no set rules when an awning should be repaired and when it needs to be replaced. Of course, repairing not only costs less, but is also environmentally friendlier. General fabric recover and maintenance of parts will mostly be covered but when the frame of your awning is no longer in a good condition and it is damaged, we would recommend replacing the awning, since an accident is likely to happen.
