You can’t control the weather, and in the summertime the sun will blaze all it wants. It’s welcoming to have some warm weather after the cold winter months, but in a way, this too restricts you from enjoying the outdoor spaces in your home. Jans Awning Products has a range of products. Using them is the best way to have the sun when you actually want it and the shade when you really need it.
The best way to enjoy your outdoor living areas is to shade them from the sun with the convenience of the best awnings, screens and shades. If you think awnings and canopies are only for shade think again. They offer a number of other benefits and satisfy many different functional objectives such as:
- Energy Savings – Apart from the shade and attraction quotient they provide, awnings help in saving energy in your home or commercial establishment. Any typical home will have windows and maybe a few glass doors too. Though these provide you with a view to the outdoors and let in light and fresh air, they also let in the heat (even when they are shut).
Solar radiation that streams in through glass accounts for almost 20% of the load on your air-conditioning systems. Having an awning or a shutter above large windows and French doors that lead out into a patio, deck or balcony can provide you with significant energy savings.
- Protects the Interiors – You decorate your home with a lot of love and pour finances and effort into getting the right furnishing fabrics, carpets, rugs and curtains. But all of this is futile if you do not have the right kind of shade protection for your glass windows.
The sun’s rays are very powerful and they tend to fade the carpets and furnishings in the interiors as well as the polish on your wooden furniture. The best way to prevent this from happening is to have deep awnings outside large windows.
We offer you a number of products, all of which are made of long-lasting, flame-retardant and strong outdoor materials which are easy to clean. We have products like:
- Retractable Awnings – These provide protection from the sun and rain and are available in manual as well as automatic variants and we are able to customize the widths for you
- Rollshutters – These are ideal for residential, cottage/ business security and can be used on windows, storefronts, screen storage areas and pool houses. They provide your home, shop or office with the security and help in savings on energy bills too (even when you roll them down at night).
- Screens & Shutters – These are the perfect way of enhancing your porch, gazebos and patios. They are available in motorized retractable styles and are the perfect way to keep these areas well-shaded

If you are a school, there are several reasons why you should invest in Talius Rollshutters.
Vandalism is an unfortunate part of running a school, and broken windows are one of the biggest headaches. It could be from a rival school, a student angry at a bad grade, or from gang activity. With our rollshutters, you can protect your windows and eliminate the need for costly emergency glass cleanup, and window replacement. It also prevents any break and enter attempts to vandalize the hallways with spray paint.
Schools are a prime spot for theft as there are so many expensive items in the school like computers and sports equipment. As schools are generally open to the public, hundreds, if not thousands of people know the layout of the grounds. With Talius Rollshutters in place, you make it inconvenient for thievery and eliminate the temptation for a quick smash and grab.
I remember being a youngster at Brant Hills Public School and getting extremely upset when I accidentally cracked a window with a basketball that bounced in the wrong direction. While the teachers were nice about it, and my parents never found out, it was not a pleasant experience as a kid. Playground accidents are going to happen frequently when softballs, dodgeballs and basketballs are tossed around. In high traffic areas it makes sense to have a rollshutter to protect windows from damage.
In high school we had a lot of sleepover events for charity or fun. With the bright florescent lights that keep brighten up the hallways and rooms, anyone can see inside and view what exactly is going on. Rollshutters ensure your student’s privacy is maintained as they block all prying outside eyes. Rollshutters also provide complete darkness, which makes it perfect for movie events the school may have.
Talius Rollshutters offer additional security against strong winds and storm weather. They prevent tree branches from smashing windows, or windows from blowing open and letting in torrential rain pour. Furthermore, in times of emergency due to a bad storm or flooding, the local school gymnasium is often a spot where people gather. Rollshutters offer additional shelter during these times of emergency.
Rollshutters are the perfect way to protect the investment of your school, as well as the security for your students. They are perfect for highschools, elementary schools, colleges and universities. Our rollshutters are customizable, meaning they will blend in with your property and not be unsightly. Below is a video from Talius that further explains the benefits of rollshutters.
