I wanted to update everyone on a retractable awning change. For over a decade we’ve been a dealer for Sunsetter Awnings. We’re still remaining a dealer, but will no longer offer their laminated fabrics as part of our product line.
Sunsetter has two main acrylic awning fabrics, the laminated and the woven styles. Previously, we offered the laminated as our rock-bottom economy model and the woven as an upgrade for better colors and durability for only a few hundred dollars more.
Because of a great deal of problems with laminated fabrics last year, we will no longer offer the laminated colors or fabrics.
Don’t worry, we’ll still offer their woven acrylic fabric options of 32 colors and patterns. In addition, we also offer awnings from two other companies that have hundreds of color and pattern options.
You’ll have more than enough to choose from, but we wanted to make sure that you’re only choosing a quality product, rather than the cheapest available.
If you have a laminated fabric now and need a replacement at any point, the woven fabrics fit perfectly into your existing awning frame with no issues.
Please let us know if you have any questions.

Normally I enjoy having a lot of fun with these e-mails or telling you about neat new products, but occasionally I need to update you on safety related items.
We just received the notice below from Sunsetter Awnings. Many of you might have also received it in the mail as well.
Apparently, there have been some injuries reported when people improperly removed their awning covers. I haven’t actually seen the reports, but I’m guessing folks hit the button for the awning to come out but forgot the cover was still attached. Then they tried removing the cover without retracting the awning. And…POW! The awning cover pops off, the awning pops out, and the owner gets knocked off a ladder.
You can see how this could range from a slight injury to something much more serious, especially on an elevated deck in the photo. We installed two awnings on this deck, and it’s a big drop to sea level.
So please be careful if you have a removable awning cover. If you do have one, but would prefer for us to retrofit your awning with a permanent aluminum hood cover, just give us a call. You can see the hood on the photo above.
