Folding Arm Awnings


If warm weather inspires you to thoughts of relaxing alfresco you’ll love our Folding Arm Awnings. These practical and eye-pleasing roll away cover blinds can be used for decks, patios and balconies or for businesses such as restaurants.

Folding Arm Awnings extend your living space seamlessly from inside to outside with shade to protect you from the sun and to keep you dry in light rain.  Unlike a permanent structure, these blinds offer the versatility of different settings for different seasons.  You can maximise sunshine by retracting them completely or adjust the angle for a variety of lighting and spatial effects.

When you’re busy entertaining you want fuss-free solutions.  Folding Arm Awnings have a smooth-gliding action and as they are self-supporting, they fold away neatly with no obstructive, unsightly vertical posts.  Choose from manual or motorised options that feel effortless to use.

Add value to your house with a knock out outdoor area to enjoy in airy comfort thanks to intelligent design and heavy duty fittings for a long service life.
