We pride ourselves on our ability to provide the finest craftsmanship and outstanding design solutions for awnings of all sizes.

Awnings are a great solution for hotels as they're cost-effective, require simple installation, and aren't a hassle to maintain. The awnings can be overprinted with your branding and the colours chosen to match your corporate colours.

Our collection of awnings covers over 40 frame colours and hundreds of fabric combinations to choose from. Whatever the specification for your hotel, we'll find the best awning solution for you.

Dutch Awnings

Dutch Awnings are so called, because they first became popular in Holland. All of Shades of Comfort Dutch Awnings or Dutch Canopies are made to measure and manufactured to your requirements. They are ideal for where a heavier awning is not practical or where you are looking to achieve a traditional look and feel. A Dutch Awning can be fixed or retractable. Where they are retractable, they can come either with a pull cord, crank or a remote controlled electric motor.

Twin Fixed Awnings

Twin Fixed Awnings are a free-standing support structure that allows you to fit awnings on both sides to shade especially large open spaces. With this product, no walls are required to attach the awnings, and the awnings themselves can be opened individually as and when needed. Removable stone bases give the structure its sturdiness and flexibility; or the structure can be ground mounted. These awnings are particularly popular with the hospitality side to retail.

Drop Arm Awnings

Drop Arm Awnings are a very traditional canopy which are totally bespoke to suit any building. Not only do we supply & install new drop arm awnings, but we can also supply recovers for the canopies too. The Drop Arm Awning projection can be adjusted to any angle so that it provides a visually appealing look as well as shading.

Cassette Awnings

Cassette Awnings are an enclosed awning where the roller, fabric cover and arms are completely protected and stored in a closed cassette when retracted. Fully cassetted awnings are a popular choice for the protection they provide, prolonging the life and the look of all the elements. Cassette Awnings can be manual or motorised to suit any building type.

Box Awnings

Box Awnings are folding awnings that close into a protective pre-made case or box. When the awning is closed, the cassette box protects the cover and the mechanical parts against the elements. These are particularly popular with our retail customers.
