The most obvious reason anyone invests in an awning is to provide shading outdoors. They allow you to sit on the patio and read without glare, and mean you won’t be squinting at guests at your next barbecue.

But shading isn’t the only reason more and more people are choosing to install an awning. There are plenty of other benefits which you may not have even considered

Blocking Harmful UV Rays

It’s undeniable that bright sunlight can be annoying, but the invisible UVA and UVB rays can actually be harmful. A high quality awning fabric won’t only block the light, but 97 to 100% of UVA and UVB rays too. So you can spend all day in your garden without damaging your skin.
