You'll enjoy worry-free, outdoor living and experience elegant, on-demand solar protection with easy, push-button convenience.


With the largest variety of options, Durasol creates a fully customized shading solution to fit your needs ­ providing reliable, long-term comfort and added value.

Custom Sizing

Each SunShelter Select awning is custom designed and sized to meet your exact specifications. Available from 6' to 40' widths (in 1/4" increments) with 5' to 11'6" projection range.

Reduced Energy Costs

Durasol retractable awnings effectively filter the sun's light, creating a cool and relaxed environment. Solar heat gain is greatly reduced by limiting the amount of direct sunlight that enters a window or door. The use of fabric awnings will reduce solar heat gain by up to 77 percent and lower indoor temperatures by 10-15 degrees.

Protective Hood

Durasol offers a sturdy and aesthetic protective hood that is available in four colors. The optional hood provides a "finished" look when the awning is retracted, protecting the unit from the elements.

Designed for durability and maintenance-free operation, Durasol Awnings offer the finest component features available in the industry. 6. Front Bar

Our unique, extruded aluminum component incorporates a multi-chamber profile that is very compact in design. The use of multiple chambers, with internal ribs, greatly increases rigidity and reduces deflection providing the most taut fabric possible and eliminating unsightly front bar sagging and bowing. The front bar also incorporates specially designed fabric locks to secure the fabric cover to the framework.

1. Protective Hood

Our optional protective hood is made from strong, lightweight, UV resistant PVC and is available in white, ivory or sand to match frame colors (our brown hood is constructed of powder coated aluminum). Our uniquely designed hood will shield your shading system from the elements when retracted and is ideal for use with roof-mounted or wall-mounted units.

2. Installation Bracket

Specifically designed for each style of mounting application, these extruded aluminum brackets are tested to withstand the rigors of daily use without causing damage to your home. All mounting brackets, including our unique roof-mount bracket system, are fitted with stainless steel fasteners and are treated with a durable powder-coat finish to resist corrosion.

7. Roller Tube

Our premium-grade, cold-rolled steel with a galvanized finish inside and out. The cut ends are resealed with a galvanized finish to prevent corrosion. We utilize a 78mm diameter steel roller tube with a 1.25mm wall thickness to provide a shading system with excellent performance. By combining these dimensions, we create a shading system that will span up to 20' without a center support or a split-roller.

3. Arm Castings

Vacuum injection castings are produced with the special new alloy, 4250-2B. This alloy allows us to create arm components that are 5 times more flexibile and up to 40% stronger than ever before. Our castings are chromate treated before powder coating to provide superior adhesion. They pass a rigorous 1,000hour ASTM-B117-02 salt spray test ­ the toughest in the industry.

8. Motors & Electronic Controls

Choose from a variety of tubular motor and electronic controls that provide quiet, touch-of-a-button operating convenience including the options of automated weather sensing devices. The motor itself is contained within the roller tube of the unit and is UL approved for safety, along with all electronic controls.

4. Torsion Bar

The 40mm square bar is the backbone of this shading system. Our torsion bar is constructed of 6061 T-6 aluminum, with a polyester powder-coated finish. The large profile dimension ensures that your investment will remain in adjustment and react properly to various weather conditions.

9. Fabric Cover

First run, 100% solution-dyed acrylic fabrics from the world's leading suppliers are cut and sewn using state-of-the-art, computer-aided equipment for a perfect cover every time. Once the fabric is inspected, we utilize superior quality Gortex® thread for all seams. This allows Durasol to produce a cover that will look and perform at a level that exceeds your expectations for years to come.

Durasol Awnings meets or exceeds all U.S. and Canadian standards in accordance with OSHA and SCC regulations. You can be assured that our awnings are proven to be of the highest quality and tested to the following TUV Rheinland standards: UL 73, UL 60335 and CAN/CSA E335 to receive this accredited safety mark.

5. Retractable Arms

Select arms utilize single stainless steel 4mm cable and an exceptionally large, articulated elbow. These key features ensure that our arms will stand the test of time. The arm tension is activated through cables and springs. Our cables are made of 133-strand (10,000-pound tested) aircraft quality stainless steel. They work in conjunction with the cold-wound internal arm springs. On 11'6" projections, we incorporate double springs in each arm for extra tension providing a beautiful, taut fabric cover.
