Folding arm awnings

Folding Arm Awnings- Your Entertaining Plans Covered.

We all know Melbourne is famous for its unpredictable weather. From harsh sunshine to sudden rainfall, it’s not unusual to go through four seasons in a single day.

Installing Folding Arm Awnings can provide the ultimate protection you need from the Australian sun. Being fully retractable, these are highly sought after solutions for any shading concerns and offers the following benefits.

Handle the Heat- Folding Arm Awnings for UV Protection

Folding Arm Awnings will protect from the sun when needed and neatly fold away if no longer required. Building permanent outdoor structures is costly and space-consuming, hence retractable awnings are a superior solution that offers more flexibility and maximises your space. Whether you are covering a single window or an entire deck, folding arm awnings are custom made and can be built in sizes up to 18 meters wide and 5 meters in projection.

Let it Rain- Outdoor Retractable Awnings

Outdoor Awnings are made of extremely durable materials that are designed to withstand some light summer rain, so your entertaining can continue uninterrupted. Window Awnings are also handy as they protect your rooms from sun damage while allowing you to let some fresh air into your home. Both have a variable pitch control options so you can alter the angle (height) of your moisture resistant awning at any time to suit your requirements and keep out the raindrops.
