Primrose 2m Awning

This 2m manual awning by Primrose can be a great addition to a new or existing patio.

There are 4 attractive colours for this state of the art awning that is great for providing shelter whilst having a meal outside or entertaining.

Check out my review below for more information.

What’s in the Box?

  • Waterproof Canopy (300gsm polyester)
  • Winder & Bolts
  • Brackets (built into frame)


Whether you’re looking to extend the capabilities of your patio or seating area to maximise outdoor summer temperatures this is a great buy.

Primrose 2m Awning

With a choice of 4 subtle colours available to purchase you can add that little bit of extra style and versatility to your garden area.

This awning can be extended to full-length or as little as you wish, as well as being able to adjust the slope of the awning from 5 degrees to a steep angle of 35 degrees.

Additionally, strength is not compromised when at full tilt as the awning has an aluminium front bar to ensure it hangs smoothly.

Best Uses

A popular use for an awning is quite often to cover patios and seating areas.  More commonly they can be used to offer protection to windows and doors or cover pavements.

With this awning, we have also had feedback from shop owners that have bought this product and used durable lettering to spell their business name out on top of the awning, to further advertise their business.

  • Cover Patios
  • Cover Seating Areas
  • Protect Windows & Doors
  • Shelter Pavements
  • Ideal for Shopfronts

We may not have covered the use that you intend to use it for but don’t worry, there are lots of other uses available.

Sizes Available to Buy

This style awning can come in bigger sizes.

The Primrose 2.5m version has sold over 200 units on Amazon compared to this 2m awning.  Personally, I think that the 2.5 and 3m sizes are preferred just because of the extra overhang.

5 Main Features

  • Very Easy To Install

This simple to install awning can be fitted in approximately 1 to 2 hours for an average DIY enthusiast. It is also relatively simple to take down and store indoors for winter if you choose to do so.

  • Easy to Project/ Retract the Awning

This product arrives with a winder which makes both projecting the canopy out and winding it back in very easy.

  • 300gsm Waterproofing

The canopy itself is a very high-grade level of waterproofing.  At 300gsm it is above the waterproof grade of most gazebos meaning the rainwater will just slide off your awning.

  • Powder Coated

To ensure longevity the awning has an electrostatically powder coated finish to the frame and parts.

  • Overall Quality

What’s clear is that you are buying a good quality 2m awning.  Together with the waterproof canopy and powder-coated aluminium frame and parts, they offer real strength and durability.

It is recommended that you wind in the awning when not in use to prevent bleaching of the colours by the sun

In a Nutshell

By now you will have realised that we rate this 2m awning highly.  Recommended

It does exactly what it claims to be able to do, shelter an outdoor area and offers protection to windows or doors.

It’s high quality only adds to the reasons to buy and obviously will increase its durability and longevity.

We recommend this product.
