These awnings are commonly referred to as Fall arm or Drop arm awnings and consist of normally two spring-loaded support arms (one on either side of the awning) and which in turn are attached to the building. Drop arm awnings give the added advantage that they can be retracted completely when not in use and can be raised and lowered in an arc from 0 to 180 degrees thus providing shade protection throughout the day by adjusting the pitch and giving total privacy when set at 180 degrees.
Fall/Drop Arm Awnings
While the standard operation of these awnings is manual by means of a gearbox and crank handle, automation/motorization is also available with many additional features. Drop arm awnings are generally ideal for weather protection over windows and door openings and perform well in windy conditions. The awning frame/structure is made from high quality non-corrosive materials and available in many powder coated colours. A multitude of high performance, durable solar fabric ranges are available to complement our Drop arm awning. Additional features/accessories are available such as:-
- Protection pelmets or cassettes
- Motorisation including sun and wind sensors, timers, etc.
- Custom made to order sizes
