Now that you have picked a SunSetter Motorized Retractable Awning with the Soffit Bracket Mount, let's get the correct size for your patio.
Please follow the below instructions on how to measure for your appropriate awning.
SunSetter Lateral-Arm Awnings
To get the right size SunSetter Lateral-Arm Awning for your deck, please measure
your deck or patio following the easy directions below. We suggest you PRINT
OUT these instructions and take it with you. You can leave your
computer on while you go measure now, or you can exit the website and come back
later with the measurements.
1. Measure the height of the wall where you want to install your awning.
You need at least 7 ft. 6 in. from your deck or patio floor to the bottom of any
roof, eave, or overhang to fit the SunSetter Lateral-Arm Awnings. (If you
don't have this much clearance, you can install our Model 900XT or Model
2. Measure along the side of your house to decide how wide an awning you
want. The SunSetter Lateral-Arm awnings comes in pre-cut widths from 10 ft.
to 18 ft. in one-foot increments. With the exception of the 10' awning, which
measures 122" left to right, all other Lateral-Arm (Motorized or VISTA)
awnings measure exactly like their defined size . Example, a 12 ft. awning is 12
feet wide. The actual fabric width is 41/2" less than the total awning
3. Measure to make sure you have at least 8 inches of clear, unobstructed
space horizontally along your wall where the awning will fit against the house.
