Patio Awnings


Patio Awnings

Chromadek IBR Patio Awnings are the most economical, popular, strong and practical awnings available on the market today. We can add polycarbonate sheets between the Chromadek sheets to provide extra natural light.

The polycarbonate sheets are manufactured from high-tech polycarbonate material and have an anti-UV coating that blocks out up to 98% of UV rays and most importantly the sheets we use on our awnings also provides light transmission of up to 80%.

Gear Roller Blinds can be added onto these awnings to provide even more protection from the weather and lengthen the usage time considerably.

We use powder coated steel rectangular tubing for the structure of our awnings. As a matter of fact aluminium structures are also available, they are however more costly.
