Excellent awning stability with the Royal Marcesa™

Royal Marcesa AwningThese retractable awnings utilize a centre beam stabilizer bar which runs the length of the awning giving it a “Hip Roof” shape when extended. This carefully researched design makes the Marcesa™ model stronger and more stable in the wind, in addition to offering more head space in the balk half for more enjoyable leisure space. The fabric is also tighter, preventing sagging while offering more effective protection from direct, low-angle sunlight.

The Royal is one of the most innovative products in the awning industry today. Manufactured with Canadian ingenuity and German engineering the Royal is the first system that has been specifically designed for the North American market, and not simply adapted. The Royal system comes with Pitch Adjustable housings which allows you to adjust the awning to follow the sun. With this feature, you are able to lower the front of the awning to achieve maximum coverage with a simple turn of a crank.
 

Key Features include:
  • Low profile hardware setup
  • Top-quality design and materials
  • Increased stability for high-winds
  • Can be installed at 8’ or higher
  • Easily adjust the angle yourself

4 reasons why homeowners prefer the Royal Marcesa:

Centre Beam Creates More Headroom

Superior Stability in the Wind

The stability is far superior to other retractable awning products and high-wind certified.

Excellent Protection and Control
