Patio & Garden Awnings 2023 😎

Patio Awnings from The Scottish Shutter Company

Patio & Garden Awnings

Our high-performance patio & garden awnings are available in a stunning range of bold stripes, jacquards and plains that you’ll love and will add instant exterior style.

In addition to keeping you comfortable, our exclusive fabric technology protects your awning colour, whatever the weather outdoors, so it won’t rot or fade.

Can I Have an Awning? Is My Wall Strong Enough?

These are very important questions. Not all walls are suitable for an awning. An awning can weigh up to 80kg, and the stress on the fixing surface can be extensive when the awning is deployed.

It’s vital that you get the right advice from experts.

If you’re thinking about having an awning this year, the best plan is to send us some pics of the intended location and an indication of the width you would like your awning. Also, let us know how far out you would like the awning cover to come.

You can email this information to 

We’ll also be able to give you an indication of the price. You can also find guide pricing in the table below.

Remote Controlled Patio & Garden Awnings

Garden Awnings from The Scottish Shutter CompanyWe’ve ensured that operating your garden awning from inside or outside your property is easy. With a simple button press, you can wirelessly control your awning. Whether you want to have the fabric fully extended, halfway or fully retracted is just a simple button press.

The same hand-held controller can also control the arm lights which are built into your awning.

Automatic Wind Sensor

Your awning also has an automatic wind sensor. This means your awning will retract when the wind seems too high to protect your awning and its fixings.

Your awning will be cassetted, so when the awning is fully retracted, the fabric and arms will be completely protected from the elements inside a powder-coated metal cassette. This cassette, along with the awning arms and front rail, will all be in white (RAL 9010) or grey (RAL 7016) – the choice is yours.

From protecting small balconies and plants to large awnings that offer poolside protection,

Fixing Accessories

Additional brackets, such as spreader plates, bungalow brackets, gutter brackets and pipe brackets, if required for successful mounting to your property, are available as optional extras. If necessary, we can discuss these with you when we visit your home.

Spreader Plates

In certain situations, we will fit “spreader plates” or “bungalow brackets” to provide a secure fixing for the awning brackets to your wall. These plates allow us to spread the weight of your awning over a wider area and away from the top section of your wall.

Optional Spreader Plates

Our brackets are:

  • Subjected to rigorous testing and a thorough quality control programme which has resulted in the awarding of EU certification.
  • Exposed to climatic testing to guarantee longevity
  • Mild steel brackets powder coated after bead blasting and coated with a patented zinc coating
  • Supplied with the bracket fixings to fix your awning bracket securely to the spreader plate.

Electrical Connection

An external, waterproof 13 Amp socket (twin socket if you’re adding the optional heater) connected to your home electricity supply must be fitted by your electrician before the awning installation. Full details will be provided once your order is received.


The Luxaflex Base Plus awning is intended for use as a sun protection device. It can also be used in light rain and light wind conditions but must be retracted during high wind, heavy rain or snowfall periods. That’s why we include an automatic wind sensor.

Fitting an awning to your home is not a DIY task. Awnings are heavy and need to be securely fixed to your wall. As soon as you extend your awning, you place a big load on the mounting fixings. This load is further increased on a windy day. That’s why we’ll take great care when we survey your property to ensure that an awning can be safely and securely mounted.

Showroom Appointments

Awning Characteristics

If you’re considering buying an awning, you must read this document.

It has been produced by the British Blind and Shutter Association (BBSA) to highlight the key characteristics of folding arm awnings to help you make an informed choice when buying your awning.

Shop Awnings

Shop awnings typically require local planning permission and may also come under road traffic regulations. You have to bear in mind that the general public may be affected by your awning.
If you’re planning to add a logo or text to the awning, then local outside advertising laws may also apply as you are, in effect, advertising to the public.Screenshot 2021 04 07 at 09.32.13
Applying for permission through your local authority can be time-consuming. This is probably why some shop awnings are fitted without the necessary approvals in place.
For this reason, we ceased offering shop awnings a few years back.
