FOLDING ARM AWNINGS

FOLDING ARM AWNINGS CREATE A SIMPLE, UNOBTRUSIVE WAY TO PROVIDE COOLING

SHADE FOR WINDOWS, PATIOS AND EXTERNAL LIVING AREAS.

 

OVERVIEW

Folding arm awnings are a neat solution for providing shade to outdoor living areas. Their efficient design means even when fully extended, there are no posts, struts or brackets to get in the way; and they tuck away neatly into a small, unobtrusive cassette when retracted. A wide range of fabric options gives your customer flexibility over the level of shade protection they desire, and they’re bound to find the right colour or pattern to accent their home.

FUNCTIONS

This style of awning uses a hinged arm structure which folds out to provide shade, and folds in to tuck neatly away when not in use. With the arms providing the supporting structure for the shade, there are no posts, struts or brackets to clutter up the outdoor area.
For extra versatility, folding arm awnings can also be fitted with adjustable pitch, allowing the angle of the awning to be changed from horizontal, to almost vertical. This gives you greater shade control, especially against low afternoon sun, keeping your customers home cooler and their power bills smaller.

SABS uses the Aluxor range of Folding Arm Awnings. Aluxor has provided Folding Arm Awning components to the Australian Market for over 20 years and has relationships with the highest quality manufacturers from Europe and especially Germany.
