SunSetter Products LP is an American manufacturer of awnings and sun shades.[1] SunSetter claims to have approximately a third of the United States awning marketshare.[2]

SunSetter mass produces and tests its products in a 72,000-square-foot (6,700 m2) facility in Malden, Massachusetts.[2]

Products[edit]

SunSetter's primary product lines are awnings, but the company also manufactures flagpoles,[3] solar shades, screen rooms, and mats.[citation needed] The company currently produces four different types of deck and patio awnings (including motorized and hand-cranked awnings); customers choose the color and size.[2] Most of their awnings are designed for attachment directly to a structure; the company only manufactures one type of freestanding awning.[4] SunSetter sells most of its products directly,[5] but also uses various third-party distributors.[2]

Advertising[edit]

SunSetter's primary television commercial is well known in the United States. This version has been airing since 2007 and remains in heavy rotation as of 2017.[6] Only minor updates have been made to the commercial over the years; the initial advertised minimum price was advertised as $398, but was increased to $599, likely to account for inflation.[7][8]
