Located in London, Ontario Canada, London Awnings has been leading the way in retractable shade products since 1982. Servicing Southwestern Ontario and areas such as Woodstock, Tillsonburg, St. Thomas, Strathroy, Grand Bend, and Sarnia. London Awnings offers the largest selection of retractable awnings for patios, decks and windows, as well as retractable solar screens. We provide innovative and custom installation techniques within our own fabrication shop as each product is manufactured to our client's specifications. London Awnings is best known for enhancing both the appearance and functionality of a home or business, as well as providing quality workmanship that will stand the test of time.

Awnings and solar screens bring new meaning to outdoor and indoor living.  For over 35 years, we have created solutions for those who seek comfort to accompany their outdoor living space.  People have become aware now more than ever of the dangers of prolonged sun exposure.  Retractable awnings and solar screens are a popular, simple solution to protect you and your family from the sun’s damaging effects of UV rays while you relax outdoors.  As we become more aware of the climate changes, we are also more aware of how this affects our energy use.  Shade created on the outside of buildings is 7 times more effective for solar protection indoors relative to shade produced on the inside of buildings.  Our shade products can save you up to 25% on your energy bills.

Our high quality European and North American fabrics are 100% solution dyed acrylics, which have a superior scotch guard treatment applied. Guaranteed against loss of colour, mould and rot in normal exposure conditions, these fabrics have a lifespan of 15 years or more. We are pleased to offer one of the largest, and most diverse fabric selections in the retractable awning industry with over 150 colours and patterns to choose from.   Our retractable solar screens consist of premium fiberglass mesh, available in a variety of options, allowing the customers to be able to determine the amount of heat, light and air that enters their space.  Fiberglass mesh ensures durability and provides full ventilation and protection from both insects and UV rays. Most importantly, the components, hardware, heavy-duty lateral arm supports and extruded aluminum profiles are manufactured in Ontario. This guarantees quality and availability of components to our valued customers, as our awnings and screen systems are designed to last.  There is a 6-year warranty on retractable systems. 

London Awnings is family owned and operated by Dennis and Christina van Dorst. The company's original founders, Adrian and Marja van Dorst, continue to be active mentors in the business. Offering the best quality and selection, backed by outstanding customer service and support, is how they've run their business for more than 35 years.
