Retractable awnings are pitched, which means they descend as they project. This is important because it allows water to roll off the awning. The pitch is adjustable on most awnings, but normally it is set at installation and not touched after this. It is important to take this pitch into account when mounting an awning to ensure that the awning doesn’t drop too far thus intruding into your walking space.
The following chart shows a typical 10-degree pitch and how the mounting height, awning pitch and awning projection affect the height of an awning.
