Straight Drop Awnings

Our straight drop awnings come in an extensive colour and pattern range as well as in a wide choice of sun filtering or blockout fabrics.  A sun filtering fabric will allow you to still benefit from the great views, reduce the glare of the sun as well as stop the rain from coming in, whilst a full blockout will provide complete privacy and protect your home all year round from the elements.

Windows are a big source of unwanted heat loss and heat gain in your home so with the addition of some awnings you will noticably improve the comfort of your home all-year-round, reduce your power bills and cut carbon pollution from using your air conditioner less!
