Cord and reel awnings are a fabric awning which can have an internal control, or extended external rope control. This makes them perfect for 2nd floor applications as an internal winch can be operated without the need to go outside, or a long rope can be extended to ground floor enabling you to control the awning externally at heights beyond normal reach. this type of awning can also be supplied with spring arms making them more stable in mild to medium windy conditions.
The fabric options for this type of awning include acrylic, canvas, mesh, and clear or tinted PVC. These come in varying degrees of translucent and in full block out options. there is a wide variety or striped and plain fabrics to suit most homes and businesses.
Always roll up your awning in high wind and stormy conditions.
