When it comes to enjoying your outdoor space, especially in a place like Cape Town with unpredictable weather, having the right awning can make all the difference. You've probably seen various brands claiming their awnings to be "waterproof" or "watertight," but are these claims accurate?

We believe in transparency about our products, and here’s why:

We’re Transparent About Our Products

No awning can promise to be 100% waterproof or watertight. Why? Because even the most well-designed awnings have their limits, especially when faced with severe downpours and inclement weather. Think of it like the guttering on your home—sometimes, leaves and debris can clog it, leading to leaks.

Storms & Downpours

In cases of heavy rain, there is always a chance of water getting through your awning, especially if debris accumulates in the guttering. But here’s the good news: our awnings are designed to offer a sheltered area in rainy conditions, keeping you dry and allowing you to use your outdoor space comfortably.

Keeping Your Awning in Tip-Top Condition

To ensure your awning functions at its best, position it correctly on the fall of your patio. This will help water drain away efficiently. Additionally, keeping the drainage channels clear is crucial to prevent any potential issues.

Adjustable Aluminium Louvre Awnings: Rainproof, Not Waterproof

Now, let’s talk about our adjustable aluminium louvre awnings, a popular choice among our clients. Under normal weather conditions, even steady rain, these awnings will not let rain in. You can partially open the louvres for ventilation in light rain. For heavier rain, simply close them completely to block out rain, with the louvres overlapping each other.

However, it’s important to note that rainproof doesn’t mean totally waterproof. An adjustable louvre awning is not as waterproof as a conventional fixed and tiled roof. It’s designed to strike a balance between indoor and outdoor living, providing protection against most weather conditions.

Our Satisfied Clients Speak Volumes

Our Adjustable Aluminium Louvre Roof is our top seller, and we have hundreds of satisfied clients who have been enjoying the benefits of these awnings for many years. They’ve discovered the perfect solution for creating an indoor-outdoor area that suits their needs, rain or shine.

In conclusion, when it comes to awnings, it’s crucial to have realistic expectations. While no awning can be completely waterproof in all situations, our awnings are designed to offer reliable protection against rain and create a comfortable, usable outdoor space.
