Folding arm awnings (also known as retractable awnings) are an incredibly stylish and versatile shade solution for Adelaide’s home owners and businesses. As the weather starts to get warmer and we tend to spend more time entertaining outdoors, a lot of people are investing in functional folding
arm awnings to create retractable “outdoor cover” when they need it.

In fact, this product is becoming a sound investment for Aussies who want to prepare for more backyard entertaining this summer. They’re an excellent way for anyone to make the most of their outdoor space. They can be easily installed up to 7 metres in width with a span from the wall of up to 3.6 metres without any support posts.

Why? Because, unlike fixed shade covers, folding arm awnings have the ability to be retracted when not in use. This results in you get so much more versatility over a fixed unit structure. When you want to spend time in the open air, but the sun is a little too harsh, simply raise your folding arm
awning and relax. Once the weather becomes a little more comfortable, simply retract the shade and enjoy an open and unobstructed space.

If you choose to get a motorised installation, then you can effortlessly control the amount of shade with the touch of a button. Even better than that – you can get an automatic sun and wind control option that will adjust the amount of shade based on the weather conditions.
Folding arm awnings are not only versatile in their function, but also in their application. You can have the product installed over a patio area for outdoor entertaining, or even have it extend over a pool to provide excellent sun safety for children and adults while they enjoy the water.

The high-quality construction is corrosion resistant and salt spray-tested, making them ideal for seaside homes. As a bonus, they require very little maintenance and only need occasional cleaning to stay looking good as new.
With this product, protection from wind, rain, and harsh sunlight has never been more convenient.
You don’t need to limit your time in the pool or on your patio when the weather changes – simply extend the shade out and continue enjoying your time with family and friends.
Of course, folding arm awnings have a utility for business owners as well, giving them the ability to provide greater shade and comfort to their customers. They’re a perfect addition to a café or restaurant with outdoor seating, enabling more patrons to be seated comfortably.
