By introducing an undercover alfresco area, homeowners can enjoy additional functional space at
any time of year
Outdoor entertaining areas are now considered to be more of a necessity than a luxury. One way to stay protected from the outdoor elements all year round is to install a Seashell awning from Awesome Awnings.
From small to big areas awnings can be a suitable way to shade patios, barbeque, spa, a villa courtyard or a swimming pool.
Owner Ross Ponsonby said due to its revolutionary retraction system, he believed the awning was the only one on the market that could automatically retract in high winds into a static folded state. Mr Ponsonby said the other important feature in the awnings design was that no electrics were needed. "To open and close the awning, the homeowner only needs to pull a cord which means no electrics are required", he said.
"The structure is made from a non-corrosive powder coated aluminium and stainless-steel to with stand salt-air climates."
"They have also been designed to be a waterproof 100 per cent ultraviolet protective cover."
Awesome Awnings markets its range of retractable awnings exclusively on the Gold Coast and can custom make designs to suit individual requirements. To ensure clients can get a Seashell awning to suit their particular areas the design ranges from 6 m to 10 m in length in a style that can cover up to 93 sqm.
Mr Ponsonby said to suit homeowners surrounding colour schemes, the design also came in a mixture of looks.
"The Seashell awning can be produced in a large range of colours to match any decor" he said.
"This gives it flexibility and style that is visually stunning."
"With more than 2,000 Seashell awnings already sold in Australia, this indicates the product has been truly accepted by a number of homeowners".
Mr Ponsonby said enhancing an alfresco area while adding value with an awning did not have to stop at the home.
"There are a number of commercial uses for the awning, including car yards, pre-schools, hotels, outdoor restaurants and retirement villages" he said.
