Traditional Fixed Sunbrella® Awning
Sunbrella® Fixed Traditional Awnings
AR Industries’ retractable awnings provide shade whenever you want or need it. Either manually operated or electrically controlled with the push of a button, shade is easily and quickly created.
A&R is especially excited to be providing residential awnings because we know that once our products keep direct sunlight off your windows you will feel the difference in the cooling of your home, the protection of your interiors and your lower A/C and electric bills.

In the words of our Project Manager, Mr. Andy Gonzalez:
“Since we have been in the industry for so long, we have built relationships with many fabric manufacturers who we feel have great products. Some of these companies are: Sunbrella®,Sattler®, Sundown®, Dickson®, Recacril®, and Outdura®. On top of that, we also have a large selection of different materials to choose from depending on your needs. This gives a wide range of fabric color selections for our customers to choose from at different price ranges.”
Our awnings/canopy designs are unlimited, including, but not limited to basic awning shapes.
- Elongated dome
- Quarter barrel
When customers want stenciling or graphics on their awnings/canopies, we work with the top graphics companies that provide great artwork and products. This helps businesses get more exposure for their offices.
Our frames are custom manufactured in house using either aluminum square tubing or galvanized square steel tubing (depending on customer’s request). We also custom paint our frames as each project may require. Though we do not powder coat or anodize in house, those services can be provided through our partnerships with the best powder coaters.
For those customers that might be do-it yourselfers or for those that want a simple portable solution not requiring a custom job, we work with some of the best instant and pre-fabricated canopy companies to provide such canopies such as E-Z Up®, Vitabri®, Shelter Logic®, Sioux Steel®, and Tek Supply®.
Having such a large selection of fabrics to work with, AR Industries is proud to say: “Yes, we can provide an engineered fabric product at a competitive price for almost any need!”
We work with open weave mesh fabrics where only shade (as opposed to rain protection) is required and in areas where wind is a major concern to our customers. We use solid acrylic and/or vinyl fabrics where a customer may want an area to be rain-resistant or waterproof.
For total waterproof solutions we use vinyl coated or laminated material ranging from as light as 12oz/sq yd and up to 28oz-32oz/sq yd for heavy duty extra elemental protection. We heat seal these products so that no water may leak through the seams.
When a customer is only interested in just shade creation rather than total elemental protection, we can use mesh fabrics that range from 65% openness to a 95% openness. Working with mesh material also allows more air to pass through, making it a top pick for customers who have a major concern with wind. Another benefit with working with mesh fabric is it allows privacy for those desiring a visual barrier.
Retractable awnings are a popular choice for shade requirements. They can be motorized, manually operated or both. Motorized solutions can be operated via remote control or with a wall switch. Similarly, we can also provide vertical drop screens that can also be manually operated or motorized.
Many customers think that polarized windows, window tinting, double panel windows, shutters, curtains, blinds, drapers and others will solve their high air conditioning costs. Though these items might help, they all block the sun’s rays only after the sun’s rays have hit the glass and/or passed your windows. The real solution is to prevent the sun’s rays from hitting your window which magnify the heat. By being installed on the exterior of your windows, awnings (retractable or fixed) and vertical drop screens help do this very thing.
For our products that require sewing, we use Tenara® thread, which does not mold, rot or get damaged by U.V. rays like traditional thread.
Our Warranty is as follows:
“AR Industries exclusively uses the materials of the highest quality, including Sunbrella® solution dyed acrylic fabric by Glen Raven®, and Tenara® thread by Gore-tex®. Because of this we are able to offer our industry-leading TEN (10) YEAR warranty on this item: the first five years of which are for 100% replacement or repair and the following five (5) years on a 20% per year pro-rated basis.
This warranty covers only defects originating in our custom manufactured products including materials (fabric & steel) and workmanship (manufacture & installation). Therefore, what is not covered by this warranty would include, but not be limited to, damage caused by external forces to the product, misuse of the product, and internal failure of the existing structure to support the installed fabric based product.”
