Aluma Vent awnings are contemporary in design with the vertical lines of today’s homes. With Aluma Vent awnings a home looks larger and more luxurious than a similar home without these highly attractive awnings. One look tells the story – its quality is obvious.
The Aluma Vent awning is light, yet shuts out heat and keeps homes cooler. It also wards off rain. Because windows stay dry longer, window cleaning is less frequent. Usually you can even leave windows open during a spring rain to enjoy the fresh air!
Awnings can never rust or decay; they are made entirely of aluminum. And you never need worry about the paint; it’s baked-on enamel. Over the years, these awnings retain their original attractiveness and are appreciably less expensive than shorter-life “economy” types.
Aluma Vent awnings have 5″ panels and are available in two styles: the Valance and Regular end. Choose whichever best fits your taste or the requirements of your particular installation. Each has all of the many benefits of this durable, attractive awning. Each is available in custom-made sizes to fit every window in your home.
Remember how hot your car gets when it’s tightly closed in the hot summer sun? That’s what happens under ordinary awnings. Trapped heat can’t go anywhere—except into your house through the window. Not so with Aluma Vent ventilated awnings. Heat can’t collect under them. Temperatures next to windows stay lower, just as your hot car cools when windows are opened and ventilation is possible. That’s why Aluma Vent awnings help keep your home cool.
Air conditioners also benefit from ventilated awnings. No heat accumulates under these awnings. No heat seeps into the home. Since room temperatures stay lower, air conditioners needn’t work as hard, and you save money.
- After measuring the height and width of the window, three dimensions need to be selected; the width across the window, the drop for your awning, and its projection.
- There are no hard and fast rules for selecting the exact awning but these guidelines should help. The drop should be approximately 1/2 the height of the window. The projection should be about the same as the drop for most window awnings. The width the same as the window, keeping in mind the Vented/Regular end style will project approximately 4″ further to each side.
- Select the projection and drop desired from those listed in our catalog.
- DOOR CLEARANCES: If you have an outswinging door, opening under the awning, you will need at least 7″of mounting space. See below chart for more details. A lesser space than the one given, will result in the door striking the
awning when opened. If you do not have the required space, use valance end, it requires 4″ above door.
