Frequently Asked Questions

How do motorised awnings operate?

Motorised awnings function through the use of an electric motor which is connected to the awning’s mechanism. This motor can be controlled using a remote control or a connected smart home system, allowing you to extend or retract the awning with ease.

What are the cost implications of installing a Somfy motorised awning?

The costs associated with installing a Somfy motorised awning may include the price of the motor, the awning itself, and labour charges for installation. Though motorised awnings typically cost more than manual ones, the added convenience and potential smart home integration can make the investment worthwhile. We provide competitive and affordable prices. Contact us for your free, no obligation quotation.

What are the distinctions between manual and motorised awnings?

Manual awnings require physical effort to extend and retract, typically using a hand crank mechanism. Motorised awnings allow you to operate the awning with a press of a button on a remote control or through a smart home system. This added convenience makes motorised awnings a popular choice among homeowners and business owners.

How do I replace the fabric on a Somfy motorised awning?

To replace fabric on a Somfy motorised awning, steps usually include removing the original fabric, preparing and measuring the new fabric, and attaching it to the awning mechanism. For more detailed information, you can contact us at Winchester Awnings for professional and trusted advice.
