Our stylish and practical awnings have simple and smooth operations, both manual and electronic fully retractable awnings for all year round protection. For easier electric operation remote control comes as standard and optional LED lighting is available in the awning arms as are automatic sun and wind sensors that can be fitted so the awning retracts during wind and extends when the sun shines. Heaters are available for those chillier evenings at home or for outside customer areas for busiensses.

Widths up to 14 metres and projections up to 4 metres can be accommodated. There are various model options from fully enclosed cassette top boxes, to an open system protected by a cover board. We also provide branded awnings for commercial premises including pub, schools, colleges and shops.

Extend your outdoor entertaining into the evening with LED lights and Infrared Heaters

Our lighting solutions available for the Base Plus and Armony Plus awnings can help create a warm atmospheric environment to sit under in the evening with adjustable LED lighting stips incorporated into the arms which are dimmable to 50% brightness. We can also supply a fully waterproof infrared single or double heater with touch or presence timer controls to help energy costs. Our heating units radiate heat just like the sun, directly warming people rather than the air in between.

A relaxed company to deal with, good customer relations. The awning was efficiently fitted and is a good sturdy product. All I need now is the sun to try it out!.

Stephen Burdett

We are very pleased with our awning. We needed some shade on our patio but were unsure on our options. The Abbey surveyor was most helpful and offered constructive advice. Having made our choice the installation was undertaken in less than three hours by the friendly and expert Abbey team. Full marks.

John Jenkins

I cannot praise Abbey Awnings enough. The level of service was beyond expectations. From the very start through the installation and after the company was very professional and most helpful! I would not hesitate to recommend them.

Main elements of our Awnings...

Abbey Awnings Reading operaton

Modern design techniques

A folding arm is the most practical and popular choice for a patio awning to allow unrestricted access under the awning and fold away when the awning is not required.

Aluminium System

Made of solid die cast or drop forged components with extruded premium grade aluminium profiles; epoxy powder coated for a lifetime of maintenance free operation.

Quality Fabrics

A wide selection of fabrics are available based not only on colour and pattern but on density and solar protection and can incorporate logos and branding for commercial applications if required.

Manual or Automtic

Manually operated with a hand crank or a motorised or automated system can be installed. Motorised systems provide more precise operation and help to make the most of the awning.

Abbey Awnings create an area out of direct sunlight and light showers which is great for entertaining friends and family or providing a more comfortable outdoor area for your customers. If used in conjunction with our wind support system the Awnings can be used in winds greater than normally possible for this type of product.
