Measure for Your Awning

Step 1Measure the height of the wall where you want to install your awning. SunSetter awnings require a minimum height of 7 feet 6 inches from your deck or patio floor to the bottom of any roof, eave, or overhang. Note: 1000XT models require only 7 feet.

Step 2Measure along the wall of your house at the desired mounting height to determine your awning width. SunSetter Awnings are fabricated to match the following width measurements:

  • Most awning models, including all 1000XT models match the size measured.
    (example: 14 ft. size awning = 14 ft. actual width)
  • All Platinum Plus (Semi-Cassette) models measure 3 inches wider than size measured.
    (example: 16 ft. size awning = 16 ft. 3 in. actual width)
  • Awnings that are 10 feet measure 3 inches wider than size measured.
    (example: 10 ft. size awning = 10 ft. 3 in. actual width)

Special Considerations:

  • Fabric width is 4 ½ inches narrower than awning width for all models except...
  • Platinum Plus (Semi-Cassette) fabric width is 7 ½ inches narrower than awning width.
  • 1000XT fabric width is 10 inches narrower than awning width.

Step 3For Motorized models only: Please indicate whether you want your electrical awning as you face the house. It should be closest to your outdoor electrical outlet.
