How to Measure for Your Retractable Awning

Having the proper measurements is critical for the proper installation of your Sunair retractable awning. To insure a proper installation, we recommend having a JC Awning professional installer measure your awning area. However, if you wish to take your own measurements, please follow these steps.

Step - 1 | Determine the width of the awning (A). This requires a clear span, with no obstructions. The awning needs to be mounted on a continuous uninterrupted plane. Be sure that light fixtures or down spouts are not in the way.

Step - 2 | Determine the awning mount area (B). Although the awning brackets require a minimum of 8" (inches) to mount , you should allow additional space below the awning for proper operation of any awning. The awning will require a total of 12" (inches) of space to function properly.

Step - 3 | Determine height for the awning brackets (C). A minimum of 7'6" is required from the deck or patio to the top of the mounting space (C).

Step - 4 | Check the clearance (D). Make sure you have a minimum of 10 inches from the top of any door openings and the bottom of the awning brackets.

Step - 5 | Select the projection that best suits your needs (E).
