GiCor is your source for Awnings Calgary!

Awnings provide a great opportunity to enhance both the appearance and functionality of any home or commercial building. They will add value and elegance as well as to increase the amount of time that you spend entertaining on a sunny afternoon or cool summer evening. Awnings are typically installed on the exterior of a building, but can also be used over interior windows and entrance ways in malls or retirement homes to create the look of a French style café. Cassette systems are available to completely conceal and protect the fabric when the awning is retracted.

Available control options include chain driven, manual cranks or motorized systems for large spans or hard to reach areas. Control options include hand held remotes, wireless wall switches with the potential to integrate with home automation or third party control systems. Optional accessories include sun / heat sensors to automatically lower awnings at a specified threshold in order to maintain a consistent temperature inside your property. Wind sensors can also be added to retract the awnings on a moments notice in high wind situations. New smart phone apps and wifi bridges are also available to control shades based on scheduled events throughout the day.

 

GiCor carries three different brands of awnings;
