Please describe the project specifications

Our company designed, manufactured, and installed a residential, retractable awning with a span of 18 feet, 6 inches and projection of 13 feet. The fabric used was Sunbrella 4672 white. The white semi-cassette fully encapsulates the fabric when the arms are fully retractable. A Somfy, 535A2 Sunea motor responds to a Somfy, Telis-1, handheld remote.

What was the purpose of this project? What did the client request?

Mrs. Karazim wanted to surprise her husband with a new awning for his 60th Birthday. She called on 5/3/17 pleading to our designer, Vahid Becirovic. He then managed to take necessary measurements, and European Rolling Shutters manage to build and install on 5/4/17 as requested by client and surprise her husband for this birthday. Needless to say the customer was very satisfied with the end product.

What is unique or complex about the project?

The unique thing about this project was that the client called on 5/3/17 and we manufactured and installed the awning on 5/4/17. The client was extremely satisfied that we were able to help her surprise her husband for his 60th birthday.

What were the results of the project?

We more than exceeded our clients' expectations. They added additional living space to their home during the times that the space was really needed. They also reclaimed a lifestyle that had been previously lost due to harsh light and intense heat. The Karazims' can now enjoy social gatherings in their beautiful back yard.
