Our retractable awnings are supplied to order in custom made sizes. When considering sizes, the projection and the width of the awning have to be considered.

The Width is the overall width of the awning as it is installed on the wall. This ranges from 2 meters to 6 meters plus.

The projection is defined by the distance the awning will reach out to when it is fully extended(open). The sizes range from 1.5 meters up to 5 meters.

Generally as a rule, the width needs to be greater than the projection by around 50-75cm depending on the model. This is to ensure the arms don’t hit each other when closing

Retractable Awnings can be operated in two ways. With a manual winder or with a motor. The Manual options comes with a winder of various lengths that can be used to open and close the awning. The motor options required wiring for connecting the motor to a power supply. A remote control allows the awning to be opened and close. We supply our awnings in Dubai, UAE with Somfy motors. Somfy provide a 5 year manufacturers warranty and service and support in the UAE.

We can supply customers with a Wind sensor which provides a extra level of safety for customers. This device can close the awning based on sunlight level and wind speed protecting your awning in normal winds. A Note for wind sensors, these will not protect against strong winds and storms. Awning control via mobile app is also possible. It allows you to automate when you open and close the awning and control it from your phone.


We are able to provide lighting for awnings. Either in the arms built in or along the front profile of the awning and feeding into the front flap. The Lighting is a low power LED. The lighting can be controlled via remote control for ease of use and connected to mobile control via a Somfy Tahoma Switch.


We have a range of fabrics in stock for our awnings in Dubai and the UAE. To ensure the fabric won’t fade, we use fabrics that are solution dyed from respected brands. The Fabric brands we work with are Recasens, Sunbrella, and Sauleda. You can view some of the Fabric colours we have available below or on our fabric Page. We can also supply unique flounces (flaps) at the front of the awning. We can make multiple designs including straight or Scalloped Edges.


At the Shading company in Dubai we like to do a site inspection before we assemble and install the awning. This is to ensure that there are no issues, special brackets or complications in installing. Awnings need to be installed into concrete walls or metal support structures. We use special bolts and fittings to ensure the awning stays in place. The awning installation can take 3-5 hours. This is dependent on where the awning will be installed and whether there is easy access and special brackets are needed.

Wiring should be considered for motor and wind sensor operation and this needs to be linked to the nearest power supply. The awning angle can be set and agreed with the customer at the installation time to ensure it provides the required shade. We can agree this on site or before the installation.
