Retractable awnings or Motorised Retractable Awnings or Operable Awnings originated from Europe during the late 18th century and became increasingly popular in the late 19th century. In 1979, we brought the concept of quality European retractable awnings into Singapore through our initial establishment. Decorial Pte Ltd (Singapore) has accumulated more than 35 years’ experience to provide the perfect one-stop premium rain & shine solutions to individuals, commercial and governmental entities throughout Asia. Our elite team also look forward to long-term ethical business relationships with all our clients.
Our European principal manufacturer of outdoor sunshades and retractable awnings for over 160 years (Since 1846) meets the criteria of the most demanding international standards of quality. Decorial Pte Ltd is the exclusive distributor of all ‘Roche Habitat’ systems (by Groupe Installux, headquarted in France). While other companies or general roofing contractors may claim that they are also suppliers of ‘Decorial’ or ‘Roche Habitat’ systems, users are advised to verify with us on the product’s authenticity.
In early 20th century, there is an influx of substandard retractable awnings of locally fabricated and imported systems from Eastern countries in Singapore. These retractable awnings have gained a significant amount of market share due to low prices. However, throughout the years we insist on using only quality European retractable awnings because we choose not to compromise on quality for cost saving. When considering cost over product lifespan of retractable awnings, European systems provide more cost savings in the longer term with some lasting more than 20 years with less or no maintenance required (e.g. Parkview Holiday Inn, HLH Foods & etc). Furthermore, all installations are only done by our in-house professionally-trained installation team. Clients should also be aware that awning prices should not be calculated based on per square-feet or square-metre rate as there are fixed costs involved for individual units (e.g. quantity of tubular motors or pair of arms).
The arms of the retractable awning can be assimilated to the chassis of a vehicle as it is the element of resistance and the largest holding. The design of ‘Decorial’ retractable awning arms and the quality of their manufacturing provides a perfect fabric tension and excellent system lifespan. Continued research & development are carried out to ensure that these retractable awning arms are adapted to increasing demands and expectations in terms of design, robustness, ease of operation. These retractable arms are the main support for the entire awning and are set to cover a pre-determined projection and length coverage for each pair of arms.
