Today we’re going to take a look at our 3 new folding arm systems that we have just released.
Hi! I’m Jason from the company Blockout Blinds. I trust you’re having a great day and I’m absolutely excited to announce to you the release of our fantastic new folding arm awning range. Finally!
So, finally we’re releasing our new folding arm awning range. Why am I so excited? Well, it just has so many features and this folding arm awnings look absolutely spectacular. But you’ll understand exactly what I mean after you’ve seen these photos and I’ve explained a little bit more.
Before I get to that though, let’s start off by looking at what colours these folding arm awnings come in. Now, a lot of folding arm awnings normally don’t have much of a choice and when they do have a little bit of a choice its normally pretty ordinary. Well look at the colours we have here; we have graphite, then we have metalised grey, ivory, and white. Now, if you can’t find the colour to make sure that your folding arm awning looks beautiful in your home, then there’s something wrong.
Klip and Stein Folding Arm Awing System
So let’s have a look at this first picture here, which is a picture of the “Klip and Stein Folding Arm System”.
They are two different systems that are pretty much the same so I’ll treat them as one. You can see here hanging on our factory wall where we initially installed it for testing which we’ve been doing for some time and above it you can see a modern looking hood, that’s only needed if you’re installing on a wall and not under an eave or a patio. This is to protect it from the weather.
If you look at this next photo here you can see the same system installed on a home we did recently and you can see it there on the second story balcony looking amazing and I tell you what the whole house looks amazing.
The good thing about this system and the other new systems we’ve just released is that they’re all rated up to a 50km/h wind rating and this particular awning we can make up to 14 metres wide with a 3.6 metre extension, now, that is absolutely huge. We can also adjust the angle or the pitch that the folding arm comes in and comes out. This particular system here can go from 5 degrees down to 85 degrees, giving you all the options that you need.
Shan Folding Arm Awning System
So let’s take a look at the next system now which is called the “Shan Folding Arm Awning System”. As you can see in this first photo here, there’s one sort of looking like its over a restaurant type area.
What you notice to be different about this is it has a fully enclosed pelmet or head box which means that when the blind is in, it’s fully protected from the weather ensuring the fabric is going to last a long time. Now this system can go up to 10 metres wide, but here is the beauty, it can’t get as wide but it can go 4 meters out in extension which is a half a meter more than the Klip and Stein Folding Arm System. It can also adjust its angle when it comes down to only 5 – 50 degrees but its still enough to cover most people’s needs.
Kumo Folding Arm Awning System
Let’s move on to my favourite the “Kumo Folding Arm Awning System” which is the fully enclosed beautifully designed cassette folding arm awning. Now if you have a look at this first photo here which is one we’ve installed on our factory wall, as you can see it’s fully enclosed, looks neat, looks smart and it just has a bracket on the left and a bracket on the right.
This makes for an easy installation of this amazing product. Because of the two brackets we can’t go as wide as the others. This folding arm awning can go up to 3 meters wide with a 3 meter extension. Small sacrifice to pay for a beautifully looking product that would just look amazing in any modern home’s back yard. This one can go from a 5 degree pitch down to an 85 degree pitch.
This next photo is still the same folding arm system just in the extended position to give you a bit of an idea how it looks extended out.
In this last photo there is a picture of one going out over a patio at the back of a modern looking home.
On this next photo, we’re back to the Klip system hanging up on the side of our factory wall. This a close up photo with the arms underneath the fabric and you can see clearly the stainless steel chain holding the two pieces of the arms together.
Now, this is important because this is the most critical part of the awning that tends to break the most. Some folding arm awnings use cables which tend to snap. This has got a really strong chain and we are really satisfied that we can put our 10 year warranty behind this product.
Finally, just on this photo here, it is a photo of our team and our design consultants getting to know the product, very important!
You can see how excited they are standing outside the factory standing underneath the two folding arm awnings, just taking it all in. It’s a sad world but yes, we get excited over folding arm awnings.
These folding arms awnings has been designed to use as few components as possible to make sure that the awnings will not break down. All the components are colour matched, and all the screws and bolts are stainless steel to ensure that they don’t rust or anything like that. So there you have it, that’s the three new systems, the Klip and Stein System, the Shan System and the Kumo System. We love them, they’re fantastic, they’re amazing, you’ve got to get one. There’s more information on the folding arm awnings page. Then I’ll guarantee you’ll be giving us a call to come out and give you a quote.
I hope you are as excited as I am which is pretty hard to do, but I bet you will be.
