Premium Pro
Full Cassette

This motorized Full Cassette awning is designed with a robust, yet sleek frame that exhibits the ultimate level of fit and finish available in the retractable awning industry. It combines design, style and durability with the cutting-edge function and technology of an articulating arm and shoulder system, and complete full concealment of the awning in a hermetically sealed cassette system, when retracted.


This motorized Semi-Cassette awning mirrors the unparalleled quality and attributes of our Premium Pro awning with design elements including a front bar that fits harmoniously into the cassette opening for a perfectly tailored look, when the awning is retracted. This model also includes our patented articulating arm and shoulder system for the smooth and effortless operation of the awning.

Open Roll

 This manual or motorized Open Roll awning incorporates the same level of quality inherent in the entire Polar Shades product line. An optional Hood is available for improved protection of the fabric from exterior elements. This model provides the widest range of size parameters, when designed with crossover arms enabling longer projections in conjunction with narrower widths. This unique arm design retracts into a stacked position and includes a 10” fabric valance for the ultimate design touch.
