Folding arm awnings are suitable for all spaces, regardless of size, and are especially beneficial for large outdoor areas. Enjoy a high-quality sun-shading solution, beautifully blended with modern design to give your home a contemporary twist and impress any guests you entertain.

Suggested applications

Outdoor entertaining – retract the blind on cool days when you want the very most of the sun's rays and extend it over your entertainment area when protection is needed. This is particularly useful for late in the day when the sun is setting and it can be very hard to find adequate shading.

Pool – create additional shaded areas over your pool when the sun is beating down and you need some respite. Our folding arm awnings are the perfect sun safety tool for adults and young children, ensuring everyone remains fun and safe in the sun. In addition, our product will help prevent debris, such as leaves and sticks from finding their way into your pool and possibly blocking your pool’s filtration system.

Seaside homes – awnings are corrosion-resistant and salt spray-tested for applications close to the water. On top of this, they are very low maintenance and only require an occasional clean to look their very best. So it doesn’t matter if you live by the beach in Glenelg or in the heart of the city of Adelaide, our folding arm awnings will be just right for your shading needs.
