Compact Awning

Retractable Slimline Awnings

The Compact awning from SunSpaces is a slender garden canopy with a compact construction. It provides effective shade and shelter, allowing you to make use of your outdoor living space no matter what the weather’s doing.

When not in use, these stylish slimline awnings can be retracted automatically via the electronic remote control. The whole construction folds elegantly away, disappearing into the U-shaped front profile when you’re ready to go back indoors.

As an optional extra, our Compact awnings can also be fitted with a slim aluminium profile that closes the gap between wall and awning, so rain simply drains off.

Folding Arms

Our awnings’ standard arms feature a double chainlink mechanism for added strength. For an additional price, we can also provide bionic tendon arms with high-tech fibres; these have a longer lifespan and allow for virtually silent, friction-free operation.

Pitch Adjustment

The pitch of your Compact awning can be adjusted between 5 and 35 degrees if face-fixed, or between 5 and 70 degrees if top-fixed or eaves-fixed. Adjusting the pitch angle is simple and may be desirable depending on weather and light conditions.


Your retractable Compact awning can be operated electronically using the wireless remote control.


We offer a range of lighting options to accompany our contemporary awnings. Please contact the SunSpaces team to discuss the available options.


A range of Valances are available for additional shade. Call 0800 085 8110 for further details.


If you need a heating source for those colder evenings, we can supply a remote-controlled 2.5kW radiant heater for an additional charge. This heater allows you to control the temperature under your awning and feel more comfortable when it’s a bit chilly outside.

Detached Awning Support

A strong standalone support can be supplied with your Compact awning and concreted into the ground, allowing you to place the awning wherever you wish. The support is available in 7 standard colours. Adjustable version available.
