Enjoy the outside of your home all year round with one of our bespoke retractable awnings.
Be in control of the sun, shade and rain.

Imagine being able to enjoy the outside of your home all year round without a single worry about the wind or rain spoiling proceedings – it sounds almost too good to be true, right?

With a retractable awning from Horizons, you can do just that. Our bespoke awnings will put you in control of the sun, shade, and rain.


How do retractable awnings work?

Our retractable awnings provide an effortless way to protect your family and garden furniture from the wind, sun, and rain.

They simply extend automatically with the press of a button and retract when they’re not needed. Some of our awnings even feature wind sensors for full peace of mind.

We understand that the aesthetics of your home are of paramount importance, which is why our awnings are unobtrusive. The smart cassettes into which the awnings retract are non-bulky and blend perfectly into the exterior of any home.


What are the benefits of retractable awnings?

We’ve all experienced those sunny spring and summer days when we head outside to enjoy the heat. But you don’t want to get sunstroke. And then the sudden onslaught of wind and rain spoils your enjoyment!

One of the biggest benefits of retractable awnings is that they enable you to enjoy more of your garden or outdoor area more often. The ability to either fully or partially extend them means you can create just the right amount of shade, whenever it’s needed.

Our retractable patio awnings are resistant to the wind and rain, but also make a perfect sunshade for those long, hot summer days.


Fully bespoke and refined

Our custom designed awnings are built to your exact specifications and can be adapted to suit your outdoor space perfectly.

From integrated LED lights, to effortless automation and built-in heaters, you can make your awning as unique as you need it to be – and perfect for your home or business premises. Our expert design team will help you every step of the way.

We call on leading manufacturers for the awnings we supply, including Erhardt Markisen and Markilux. Each awning comes with a long warranty period, too, for ultimate peace of mind.
