Ready for a history lesson all about patio awnings? Awning use dates way back to ancient times. According to historians, ancient Egyptians used awning-like structures to shade their homes. In ancient Rome, fabric awning shades were made to keep viewers cool during the entertainment. Fast forward to the 20th century and awnings made a comeback, growing popular across Europe as a way to beat the heat. Now in 2022, SummerSpace® offers modern, high-tech patio awnings that look stylish and elegant while providing exceptional shade for your outdoor spaces.

Benefits of a Patio Awning

If awnings have been around for so long, what makes them so great? Well, the list of benefits is impressive! For one, patio awnings create a superior outdoor setting. Trade unbearable heat and irritating solar glare for shaded comfort with a SummerSpace Patio Awning. In fact, using an awning can make your patio up to 20 degrees cooler! Reclaim an otherwise unusable outdoor space.

In addition to cooler temperatures, a patio awning protects your family from harmful solar exposure. SummerSpace Tempotest® awning fabrics can block up to 99% of UV rays, keeping your friends and family protected from the sun. Even more, our awning fabrics coupled with the SummerShield® powder coated frames are stunning and can add a beautiful look to your outdoor space.
