Folding Arm Awnings
Awnings & Covers have been using folding arm awnings for many years with excellent results. They are manufactured with high quality aluminium and stainless steel componentry (including the back bar). They are typically not the sort of awning you would leave out all the time, but wound out when using the area, then retracted when not in use. Customers often replace umbrellas (which can be cumbersome) for a lateral arm awning which is always conveniently sitting there ready to be used.
Folding arm awnings are a great option for those who cannot afford to pay out for a huge permanent structure. The awnings can be motorised for ease of use, although the manual gearbox option with a crank handle is very simple to operate. The automated versions are able to have a wind or motion sensor added so the awning will automatically retract in winds over a stipulated level.
There are several awning style options available depending on price and whether you are requiring it to be soffit or wall mounted. Soffit mounted folding arm awnings sit under the soffit when closed so the fabric is protected from the elements. Wall mounted awnings are not normally protected from the elements when closed. Our Cassette options which are completely concealed are perfect for this situation.
