Folding arm awnings provide a shaded and fashionable extension to your living area. Heavy duty retractable arms allow the folding arm awning to be installed with a projection of up to 3.6 metres without the need for post supports. There are no obtrusive vertical supports and folding arm awnings fold back to the wall when not in use.

Your deck or patio area is totally exposed, sun and weather protection would be great but dealing with a building project seems over the top. Easy, a folding arm awning, extending out up to 3.6 metres without the need for a support post, is a simple solution and just roll up into its protective cassette when not in use.  When the sun creeps under the awning during the day stay protected by adjusting the pitch.
