Advice for Sun Screen

I would like to attach a solar sun screen to my awning. My awning is 14 ft wide and 11 ft on a slant to the ground. I was figuring on a 14ft x 9 ft sun screen and have it in two sections; one section always might even do a attached to the roller and a bottom section that either zippers or hooks to the permanent section. I'd like to do the roll-up section to be 3 ft, and the bottom section to be 6 ft. This way I will be able to reach and attach the two sections without a ladder.

My questions are:
1. Will a 3 ft section roll up without problems? I might even do a lighter material for the top section so that I can get the 3 ft roll-up.

2. What is the best attachment method between sections; zipper or hooks?

3. What is the best brand?

Hank

I think this is what you are looking for.
I noticed many at Goshen had this one.

Thanks' guy's for the company, but still wondering how much can be rolled up with the awning and also still fit in the awning's metal storage cover when fully retracted.

Hank I have a 6' section that rolls up on my main awning. I have had no problems and it closes completely. Any more the 6' and I think you will have a issue. I don't have a zipper to add a section but that's a popular option.
