About Our Electric Awnings

Electric awnings are designed to provide shade and temperature control whilst providing a stylish addition to your house. Roché provides high-quality awnings which will protect your garden come rain or shine. 

No matter what you are looking at using your awning for, whether it is relaxing in the shade on a hot day or finishing up a spot of gardening when it’s raining or drizzling, an awning is designed to keep you dry and avoid getting sunburnt. Awnings are also great at protecting your garden furniture from sun and wind.

Electric awnings are run by a built-in motor which is hidden by the awning itself and are operated by mechanical arms ensuring that your awning is working at the best capability and serving its purpose.
