What size do I want my awning to be?
Ideally, the minimum width would be the width of your window or door (D) + 500mm (C) each side up to a maximum of 5m overall. Remember that the greater the overhang the better the shade you will get. Patio awnings are made to measure but priced in one metre increments and we recommend that you round up to the next size not down.

What projection do I require?
Projection of awningProjection (E) will decide how much shade you get. Arquati cassette awnings are available as 1.75, 2.0, 2.5, and 3.0m* projections. Budget non-cassette awnings are available as 1.6, 2.1, and 2.35 projections. For interior shading of a window only, 1.75m is generally adequate but the best size for shading a patio door and sitting out of the sun is 2.5m/2.35m.

*Compact only.
Please note: projection = distance from wall down slope to front rail (E) not distance from wall straight out (F).
