Aristocrat Awnings

It was in the year 1986 when Craft-Bilt, owned by Andy Stone started a new department to manufacture lateral arm retractable patio awnings, and a complementary line of window and basket awnings. They made use of Swedish technology and American manufacturing.

Craft-Bilt entered the market under the trademark Aristocrat. Aristocrat Retractable Awning, Canopy, and Shades products team uses specialized cutting, welding, and sewing equipment designed specifically for the production of retractable awnings. Among the company’s pride are the following:

Aristocrat Retractable Awnings are available in six models. Customers can choose among hundreds of fabrics exclusively sewn with a thread that is chemically resistant against rot and mildew. It has manual or motorized operation using a push button remote transmitter or wall switch. It also has three mounting options: wall, roof or soffit.

Aristocrat’s Tension Shade Systems is a motorized system which can be mounted above or below an existing glass roof or pergola, or they can be mounted to a wall and supported with legs a/k/a posts.

Retractable Window and Door Awnings and Canopies are made of solution-dyed acrylic, and offer either manual or motorized operation. Some of the models even have sun and rain sensors.

The company offers not only those mentioned above but also retractable canopies and pergolas. These canopies can be freestanding or attached to a wall. The comparison is best available on their website. Aristocrat also installs canopies under existing pergolas or can attach a canopy with side curtains to provide shade and privacy to your outdoor area.

We bought a motorized Aristocrat awning for our patio. Went with the full cassette Manor model as we have a lot of birds that build nests everywhere. The soffit mount was easier than expected because we could easily see the rafters to anchor into. Three sets of hands are better than two, too. However, we had to use wedges to level since the rafter ends weren’t. The aluminum frame has a good guarantee, which I’m hoping means it’s durable – I suppose we will find out within a year or two. The Somfy motor itself works quietly; however, the folding arms extend and retract the awning with a lot of noise. Respectable quality but not the best for certain!

I purchased the Aristocraft Estate model retractable patio awning for my grandmother. She’s not as mobile as she once was and just likes to sit and read on her patio, but the sun and heat drives her indoors. I read decent reviews and consumer testimonials on the web, so I’m hoping there are no problems. Since gran is in a wheelchair, I went with the motorized model with remote control, so gran just has to press a button, and everything is supposed to work. Our handyman Felipe installed it so she shouldn’t have to worry about it falling on her head. Early days and I hope everything keeps working and gran keeps smiling :)
