This is what you need to know about Straight Drop Awnings!
They look great.
The Straight Drop Awning is generally installed to fit and operate between 2 “poles”, as they are anchored to an optional frame box (aka Over-Roll Hood) at the top of the Awning and then anchors can be set down at the ground to ensure that they don’t get blown around in the breeze.
If you have an area that is wider than that, it will require more than one Awning to cover the area. There is a limitation on the width to ensure maximum protection and ease of operation, otherwise, the weight will be overwhelming for the size and it won’t function as it should.
They are easy to use.
There are 2 operating styles available, either by a gearbox – which is a manual operation, or motorisation.
- Gearbox Straight Drop
- Stainless Steel Cable Guide
- Spring Loaded Straight Drop
- Cord & Reel
- Verandah Straight Drop
These are basically primary colours that have been created to suit most all homes external colour schemes and allow you, as the customer, to decide on what will suit your home best. When making a choice, it is important you do take into account the external colours of your home and the degree of light filtering for your chosen colour.
You need to decide on the operating style, material type and fittings. The materials we use for Straight Drop Awnings are available in either:
- Acrylic to allow light to filter through but still provide privacy,
- Mesh to protect from sun and function during windy days, without blocking your view, or
- Canvas is a thicker material which acts like a Clayton’s wall.
They are created and installed using durable fabric and strong fitting materials to last you a very long time, all the while providing you with UV protection, privacy and withstanding the wind!
