Folding arm awnings, Geelong and Surf Coast

Folding arm awnings are versatile enough to be used in a variety of applications, from a residential backyard to a commercial café. They make the perfect window accessory for your business or home located in Geelong, Surf Coast, Bellarine areas.

Folding arm awnings are great in small confined spaces, as they retract out of the way when not in use. Choose from a standard folding arm awning unit; where the unit is fully exposed to the weather, it will require a pelmet/hooding for protection. A semi-cassette awning is another option, where the unit is retracted almost completely in its own cassette for protection. The final options are full cassette folding arm awnings (full cassette or low-profile cassette), where the unit retracts completely into its own cassette. Units can be operated by a gearbox and crank-handle system, or you can opt for an ease of use method with a motor and remote control. Note: all folding arm awnings over 6m in length should be motorised.

The folding arm awning units have optional extras available. You can select a wind sensor, which recognises when it’s too windy and it will automatically retract your awning in for you. You can also choose to have a sun sensor, which works in the opposite way a wind sensor does; it will detect whether the awning is receiving too much sun and will extend the awning out automatically for you – these options are only available if your unit is motorised. Folding arm awnings can project out to a maximum of 4m, and can be up to approximately 12m wide (depending on the model chosen). Fabrics available for the folding arm awnings are grouped into three types; mesh PVC (i.e. Vistaweave or Shade Elements), an acrylic canvas or the waterproof PVC. Each type has a vast array of colours and patterns to choose from.
