Folding Arm Awnings are the ideal outdoor blind when it comes to coverage year-round for outdoor entertaining and sun coverage.

Even though we’re officially half-way through Winter, Spring and Summer will be here before you know it and with that – the planning of products you need at your home to give you what you need.

We’re going to let you in on a little secret……

You don’t need to wait until the weather change to get the Folding Arm Awning you’ve been holding off on.

In fact, it’s best to order and have it installed before the warm weather and glare of the sun hits, that way you’re ready to go straight away – without waiting and suffering in the meantime.

So what exactly is a Folding Arm Awning?

Folding Arm Awnings are a retractable cantilevered outdoor awning system that is affixed to your home’s wall, without the need of permanent obstructive poles and frames to hold it in place.

The Folding Arm Awning is only extended when you need to use it; when you’re not using it – as per the name, it “folds” into itself and is compact without being obtrusive.

What types of Folding Arm Awnings are there?

Solina Pro Open-Style Folding Arm Awning: This folding arm awning is “open” folding arm awning that provides continuous shade and protection. The awning uses a heavy-duty tortion bar for mounting and all covered components are Marine Grade Stainless Steel.

Comfort Semi-Cassette Folding Arm Awning: The semi-cassette awning uses a fabric tray to protect and support the top roller tube and fabric, using a heavy-duty tortion bar for mounting and all covered components are Marine Grade Stainless Steel.

Solitar Full-Cassette Folding Arm Awning: The folding arm awning is fully enclosed by its headbox and bottom bar when retracted, utilising flat extruded brackets and all covered components are Marine Grade Stainless Steel.

The general features of the Folding Arm Awning

  • They are ideal for courtyards, alfresco outdoor dining areas and balconies
  • Provides coverage up to 7 metres wide and extends out up to 4 metres
  • Fabrics come in a variety of colours and offer sun/UV protection
  • Highly durable
  • Multi-functional – can even set-up to provide shade over the pool
  • Option to fully motorise, including rain and wind sensing (where it closes itself when sensing harsher weather); standard operation is via a manual crank handle

Additional benefits

Using the folding arm awning in its extended position, especially over window/glass areas to the home, will help save on electricity and cooling costs as it will keep the sun and heat from directly hitting the glass area.
They are very easy to use and low maintenance; offer home automation options and come with a 5-year warranty.
