Shade Sails 

For a functional, attractive canopy shade, consider shade sails. Unlike other structures that trap heat underneath, shade sails create continuous airflow for a cool outdoor experience. Enhance your outdoor space with a beautiful sail canopy personalized to your taste.

Sun shades prevent UV exposure while creating a unique, creative outdoor design. Find your sails in virtually any color and size for the perfect addition to your property.


Consider pergolas for a durable, wind-resistant statement piece. With the optional zippered drop screens, you can create a bug-free, UV-resistant location for relaxing. Choose manual or motorized, depending on your preferences.

Technicians create pergolas based on your personal space. They include a slope with a drain system and gutters to prevent water damage. Extruded aluminum makes up the columns and rafters for added durability.

Choose one of the following fabrics for your personalized pergola:

  • Ferrari 602: Block out 100% of UV rays with this blackout, waterproof fabric
  • Ferrari 502: A semi-translucent, waterproof material available in multiple tints
  • Ferrari W96: A clear coated waterproof mesh ideal for maximum translucency

Pergolas offer many benefits as a canopy for pools. Place them on the patio next to your ground pools for a shaded sitting area or a location for drinks, shade-needing plants, and furniture.

Retractable Awning 

A retractable awning provides exceptional canopy shade when you need it most, with the ability to quickly and easily remove the shading when desired. Cover the entire pool for playtime, or place your awning over a section to provide both shade and sun options.

These durable awnings can stand alone on poles or attach to a wall with supporting columns. Include lights for a beautiful nighttime seating area, and choose between motorized and manual.

Hi, I’m Don Powell! I am the 4th generation of the Powell family that started Van Nuys Awning. I am an IFAI Master Craftsmen, served on the board of the WCPA and now CEO of Van Nuys Awning. I worked my way through Van Nuys Awning learning how to install, design and manufacture awnings for the last 48 years. I handle the sales for most of our large and corporate accounts. I take great pride in our client’s happiness and successful installation and manufacturing to our client’s design. One step I take to maintain our company’s quality and client’s request will align is to personally oversee each project’s work order.
