Drop Arm Awnings

Drop arm awnings are a stylish alternative sunblind for use over doorways, terraces, balconies and shop fronts.

The awnings can be manually operated or motorized so large areas can be covered easily.

Drop arm awnings are constructed with aluminium components so there is no rust to cause unsightly stains or other problems.

These awnings are suitable for both domestic or commercial applications.

When used for a shop, the awning can be sign-written for a classy finish to the shop façade.
