What are Folding Arm Awnings?

Folding arm retractable awnings use moving swinging joints, along with high-quality fabric to create retractable shade. They can be mounted on several surfaces including walls, eaves, beams or your roof.

The key feature of these awnings is they can fold away and be stored when not in use. They work by using springs that push the arms open using non-rusting stainless steel chains in the elbows of the awning itself, and this extends the fabric cover.

You will find them mostly over patios and decks but can be used anywhere shade is required. Retractable awnings can be extended or retracted to lay out shade, as well as protect from harmful UV rays whilst allowing sunlight when retracted to enter a home in the colder months.

Residential and commercial retractable folding arm awnings can be either motorised or manual controlled. If they are motorised they can be used in various ways including wall switches, remote controls, via a smartphone, voice-activated or even using wind sensors and rain/sun sensors.

Learn more about Folding Arm Awnings

The best folding arm awnings can withstand very strong winds and gusts up to approximately 32 kph model dependent. For wind beyond 32 kph, it would be advised to use a wind sensor or motion sensor to close the lateral arm awning automatically if the wind picks up.

Our awnings are designed for light rain only. No folding arm awnings are designed for heavy rain.

In almost all cases, Designer Blinds And Plantations can create our awning solutions to be removable and therefore non-permanent thus not needing council approval.

Its always advised to check with your local council to confirm their requirements, Here is a link to the NSW state governments page on removable structures.
