Standard Features


Featuring Sunbrella Awning Fabrics

Sunbrella awning fabrics are the designer's choice for quality shade solutions. This durable and low maintenance fabric is fade resistant, mold and mildew-resistant, and bleach-cleanable. Sunbrella awning fabrics deliver the performance you expect, withstanding the elements year after year.


Custom Designed for Your Home

Every Rainier retractable awning is built to order and custom tailored to fit your unique needs. Select from a wide variety of products and options to create your own unique design and shading system.


Low Maintenance and Self Storing

All of our awnings are easy to operate and low maintenance. Retract your awning into its housing when not in use, where it will be protected from the elements. An aluminum hood is available as an option.


Intelligent Motor and Control

All Rainier shade products feature time tested, dependable motors and controls manufactured by Somfy - The world leader in tubular motor technology.

We’ve found that homeowners who purchase a motorized awning system are more satisfied with their purchase than those who don’t. Remote control technology makes using your awning convenient, and you will be less likely to experience damage (for example, being extended in bad weather, or rolling up the fabric the wrong direction.)

Awning Arm piece

Heavy Gauge Aluminum & Stainless Steel Construction

Crafted with stainless steel components and a double-galvanized roller tube, you won’t have to worry about rusting or corrosion from the elements, ensuring years of trouble-free use.


Powder Coated Surfaces

Rainier retractable awnings are powder coated in-house. The result is a beautiful, appliance-like finish that requires little maintenance. Choose from our 4 (four) standard or 7 (seven) premium colors, or we can also do custom color matching to any provided sample for an additional cost.


Seal of Recommendation by the Skin Cancer Foundation

In addition to providing protection from fading, awnings provide UV protection to aid in the prevention of skin damage from the sun. Sunbrella fabrics have been awarded the Seal of Recommendation from the Skin Cancer Foundation as an effective UV protectant.


Made in America

Rainier retractable awnings are engineered, designed, and assembled with pride in the USA. We control the manufacturing process and are able to rapidly respond to your sun protection needs.

Retractable Awnings

Worry-Free Performance

The ideal awning is strong enough to function efficiently. Durable enough to provide a lifetime of worry-free performance. Intelligent enough to know when to stay open and when to retract. Graceful enough to smoothly open and close on command. Small enough to be inconspicuous when retracted.

Our frame parts (the shoulders, arms, and bars) were designed and engineered to achieve this delicate balance. Under the right conditions (high winds, with the awning extended), the awning will fail -- you'll replace a few awning parts rather than structural damage to your home.

Product Options


Sun & Rain Sensor

The Somfy Rain Sensor is a solar-powered combined rain and sun sensor that measures rainfall and senses brightness levels. The sensor operates even if the signal is lost, so your awning will be protected even in a storm.

The wireless and compact design makes it an easy addition to any awning and can create a comfortable space for you to enjoy anytime.


Drop Valance

A drop valance provides additional protection from the sun. Our drop valance rolls up into the front bar of your awning and can be controlled manually with a hand-crank, or automatically with motorized operation.


Protective Hood

A one-piece, powder-coated, aluminum hood provides added protection from the elements and a finished look when your awning is retracted. Available in a variety of colors. Optional item.


Somfy MyLink

Never worry about losing the remote for your awning - use a convenient app on your smartphone! The Somfy MyLink device allows you to operate your awning whether you're at home or away, or you can schedule a program so your awning cools your deck every afternoon just in time for you to arrive home from work enjoy some time outdoors.
