Homeowners are trying to find creative ways to stay cool in their backyards this summer. Luckily, you don’t have to immerse yourself in an ice bath to stay cool. We have some exciting new options to help you stay calm, cool, and collected all summer long!
Perhaps the most exciting news for the summer is our brand new (and very popular) product for retractable awnings – Qubica. This product is in high demand and for good reason! Here are just a few reasons to consider adding the Qubica to your summer shade plans:
- Better Looking. The Qubica is our best-looking retractable awning ever! With a clean, compact, and sleek Italian design, the Qubica looks like a “mantle” trim molding whenretracted and a work of art when extended. The frame color is customizable with monochromatic or two-toned color schemes to match the decor of any home.
- Higher Wind Rating. The Qubica can be fully projected in winds up to 25 mph, so you can enjoy your deck or patio even if you are in a windy location. The Qubica has the best wind rating of any retractable awning – Class II.
- Keeps Fabric Clean. The “Full Cassette” design gives the owner a better experience because their awning will look the same the next time they use it as the last time they put it away.
- No Bird Nests or Squirrel Damage. Not only does the full cassette frame keep your fabric cleaner, but it also keeps eliminates the bird’s nest haven found in earlier “Open Roller” models. The full cassette also protects the fabric from squirrels by eliminating access, so they can’t steal your awning fabric to build their nest.
- LED Lighting – Standard. The Qubica always includes built-in dimmable LED Lighting to keep the party going after the sun goes down.
- Infrared Heat – Optional. Enjoy the outdoors in cool weather by adding the waterproof HeatScope “Pure” Infrared Heater. Feel 20 degrees warmer in just 20 seconds!
- Better Fabric. Dupont Teflon Extreme and HiClean Finishing keep the elegant Para TempoTest awning fabrics clean and vibrant. Every fabric has a different Temperature Reduction, Glare Reduction, and UV Protection Factor. Para Tempotest provides the Temperature, Glare, and UV Protection factor for each individual Solid, Tweed, and Stripe fabric they offer!

Other ‘Stay Cool’ Options
If the Qubica wasn’t exciting enough or you are looking for something different, a great way to stay cool in the summer is with a solid roof patio or motorized pergola. A solid roof pergola offers a stable structure to protect you from the sun, rain, and other elements.
If you like to be in control, opting for a motorized pergola allows you to control when you bathe in the warmth of the sun and when you relax in the cool of the shade.
