Go for comfort with a retractable awning

Highlight the charm of your home with a retractable awning! If you are on the lookout for new trends, an awning is a great solution.

Retractable awnings provide excellent protection against UV rays from the sun and also allow you to reduce your air conditioning costs up to 17% by creating shadows in a room.

The Groupe Bellon Prestige has been a specialist in retractable awnings for over 120 years. All our awnings are designed and manufactured in our factory. With our large selection of awnings, you will certainly find the perfect awning that harmonizes with the aesthetics of your space and your budget.

What is a retractable awning?

A retractable awning is designed with an aluminum or extruded aluminum structure. This structure is then assembled and clings to the wall of your home. We then cover the structure with an acrylic fabric that protects against the sun, mold, rot, discoloration. The canvas is already waterproof, you use your canopy during fine precipitation.

As the awning is attached to the wall of your home, it’s a great way to add a room to it. An awning allows you to enjoy your outdoor space during the summer season.

The difference with the fixed awning is that the retractable awning has arms to retract it. So, if you want to get some sun, you can. If you prefer to have some shade, it’s possible.

Manual, motorized and canvas design

It is also possible to have a motorized retractable model that can be connected to a wall switch or a home automation system. Our manual awnings are equipped with a crank that is available in several colors and lengths. We also offer over 500 color choices and fabric patterns for the canvasses, and the structure is available in twenty colors.

It is good to note that the retractable awnings are 3 seasons, you will have to close it during the winter season. You can buy covers to cover it and avoid an invasion of small rodents (squirrels) that could come to make a nest. It is not mandatory to remove it for the winter, just important to remember not to open it.

The benefits of having an awning installed

Awnings protect you from the sun and allow you to enjoy your terrace. They create shade in the house, which cools rooms and reduces air conditioning costs. They also hide you from your neighbors’ prying eyes.

It is inadvisable to leave the awning open in strong winds and rain. The awnings are easy to maintain, robust, and allow you to extend your summers on your terrace.

Other advantages :
Possibility to have a freestanding awning if you do not want it to be hooked to your outside wall. It can be installed in a specific place in your outdoor area.
Variable slope on some models to adapt the shadow according to the sun.
Possibility to have a chest for your retractable awning.

Available options

Fabrics: We offer acrylic canvasses to cut UV rays and the sun. These canvasses are available in over 300 different colors and patterns.

Festoon: Make your awning unique with a festoon. More than 100 options are available. We offer single, double or swing festoons.

Wind and rain detector: You can also have a detector that allows the awning to retract automatically in case of strong wind or rain. It is possible to have several settings on this detector.

What our clients say

Find out what our customers are saying about our excellent service.

I dealt with Bellon Prestige five years ago to make screen curtains for my back deck and two years ago to install an awning on a balcony. Every year since then, Bellon has come to pick up the awning, clean it and store it before reinstalling it. In every contact I have had, for every product I have requested, the service has been impeccable. The representatives have always been very courteous, the installations have been done with great care and the products are solid and of very good quality. In fact, both the screen curtains and the awning are still very beautiful. No breakage, no problems. I often recommend Bellon Prestige. A family business, competent and responsible, it is rare…
