Folding Arm Awning – Installation

Before you start, the most important question to ask: “Who is installing my Folding Arm Awning?”

  • There is a lot of pressure on walls when a FAA cantilevers outward, considering that FAA’s can stretch out to 4.0 metres!

    • Bricks can easily be pulled down
    • Wall Studs can be broken
      • If the price is cheap, there could be a good reason why…
  • Does your installer have trade qualifications?

    • You are about to outlay a reasonable sum of money… would you let a home handyman service your car?
    • Our installation manager is a qualified carpenter, an ex-builder with over 40 years construction experience!
      • Trust your gut feeling; it’s usually right!
