Retractable Folding Arm Awning
If its shade that you want, when you want it, then a folding arm awning could be for you. With a retractable folding arm awning, you can change any outdoor terrace, patio, courtyard or decking into a cool shaded area, whether its for entertaining, relaxing or used for protecting your homes interior against the harsh sun. When not required, the awning will fold away discreetly against the wall leaving no unsightly structures.
The folding arm frames come in various models, the traditional open body unit, the semi-cassette and the full cassette unit, with 3 standard colours to choose from, some units can also be powder coated to a colour of your choice. Frames can be as small as 2m wide and can span up to a massive 18m in width by joining profiles together. Various projections are available from a modest 1.6m up to a grand 4m projection.
The units are controlled either manually or motorised. With the manual system, a removable crank handle is used to extend and retract the awning. On the motorised system, a tubular motor is hidden away inside the tube; the awning can be extended or retracted all at the touch of a button.
The motorised versions can be hard wire or remote controlled with optional extras like a wind and sun sensor to automatically extend your awning when the sun shines and retract it when the wind picks up to prevent damage to the awning. For more versatility, the folding arm can also come with pitch adjusting arms or a variable valance to allow you to further control where and how you want your shade.
Although other fabrics can be used, the fabrics generally used are acrylics, which come in a wide variety of colours; these fabrics are coated to make them waterproof and are treated for longevity.
