We have been in business since 1985.
We have since gone on to be the largest manufacturer of awnings and shade in Canada. We are also pioneers in the e-commerce business with more than 12 years of experience shipping made-to order awnings to happy customers.
All products presented are offered online since they are easy to install. Our prices do not include installation and we supply a detailed installation manual to expand on all potential queries you may have. We also have a wide variety of videos that range from installations to maintenance. It is recommended to use a carpenter or helper if you are installing the product yourself. If you need a professional installer, we can help you identify such a contractor. Installation manuals are available for download on each product page. The videos are available on the website, see section Video Tutorials.
The price of your awning or solar shade includes curbside delivery to your house.
Your order will be delivered in approximately 4-6 weeks after the order date.
The freight company delivering your awning or solar shade will call you or e-mail you in advance to schedule a convenient time for delivery to your home. The driver will generally place the awning in your driveway or next to your home, if accessible.
Smaller shades and accessories will be delivered by courier without a specific appointment.
In most cases, there will be no need to install an electrical outlet to plug your awning or solar shade. All these products work with normal 110 volts outlets, which are installed to building code. It is highly recommended these outlets be GFI compatible. All our products have plug-in wires ranging from 15 to 24 feet.
Depending on the model, our awnings extend out to four lengths from the house, but can be partially opened at any position.
If you have a traditional awning, just close it and leave it in place during winter. Our fabric has been designed to withstand the weather year-round. If your awning is not protected by an overhang, we recommend protecting it with a soft cover. Please consult the Accessories section on our website.
The Brasilia Slim awning is a full-cassette model so simply close it for the winter and the casing will offer your fabric maximum protection year-round.
Your MultiShade solar shade should be closed all winter. Leave the casing in place throughout the winter.
The awning’s pitch is set at our factory to a slope of 18″. During the installation or at any other moment, you can readjust the pitch of the awning with a few simple steps, if desired. Please review the installation manual for the procedure or consult our videos.
Your awning is designed to protect you while you are enjoying the outdoors. You should retract it when not in use. It is not recommended to leave it open under high winds.
And for greater safety, a wind sensor is included with motorized awnings, which helps protect your investment under weather stress.
Your MultiShade has an openness of 5%, it blocks most of the sun while allowing a soft light, keeping you and your home cooler. In addition, it helps keep harmful UV rays from your furniture and flooring, increasing their lifetime.
Your awning will keep your deck or patio cooler, the temperature difference can reach up to 20 degrees Farenheit. It will also prevent the sun from shining through your doors and windows, which will lower your need for air conditioning and protect your furniture and flooring from harmful UV rays.
All our Brasilia awnings or MultiShade solar shades are designed to be virtually maintenance free. Periodic cleaning of the fabric will help extend the life of the fabric and prevent mildew formation. The awning frame is painted with durable powder-coated paint for long lasting beauty.
