[spoiler title=”*Important product disclaimer”]*Disclaimer: Awnings are for solar protection. Can be used in light rain, we recommend viewing our manual that comes with the awning system. Heavy/torrential rain, snow as well as strong gusts of wind places huge strains on the arms and the fixing points – especially as our UK weather has become so much more unpredictable. All of the products have been tested and some even have a wind rating but this is always done in a controlled environment and in the outside world you cannot measure the weather by exact scales very easily.[/spoiler]
