There are many awning types and manufacturers (e.g. Weinor, Winsol and Markilux) on the market today to suit all types of exterior shading requirements, and many systems to accommodate most applications and fitting requirements. Read about awning fabrics and materials.

Drop arm awnings

A popular design which provides you with shade and protection close to your windows. They operate on fixed guide rails with simple self-locking arms that can be adjusted depending on the required projection and drop. Automatic awnings, suitable for ground floor or balcony windows, are available in acrylic, canvas and sunscreen fabrics along with matching hooding.

Dutch Canopy awnings

Available in varying shapes, sizes and projections depending on your requirements. These fixed awnings, designed to be used directly above windows or doors, are a popular choice for both home and commercial use (e.g. cafes) as their shape enables the effective use of signwriting on the front panel whilst remaining an efficient form of sun protection.

Folding arm awnings

Predominately used to cover patios, decks, verandahs, balconies and entertaining areas as they can provide considerable shade due to their large projection. Awning sizes range up to 20 metres in width with an available projection of up to 4.5 metres. Folding arm awnings have the added benefit of requiring no posts or beams enabling clear, unobstructed access.

Fixed arm awnings

Fixed arm awnings offer protection against the sun and unpleasant weather conditions and are ideal for shading windows, patios and doors. Steel awnings provide greater strength with increased wind resistance, durability and are low maintenance. The fixed steel awnings are available with open or closed sides making them perfect for outdoor ‘Al Fresco’ living.

Commercial awnings

Being as unpredictable as the British weather is an all weather solution is a requirement. If you are a pub, restaurant, bar or café owner this can dramatically increase the number of people that you can seat for food or drinks regardless of the weather and provides a comfortable area for customers to comply with smoking legislation.

We can offer you weatherproof awnings with side screens, front screens, fixed or removable support legs, lighting, heating and even speakers to accommodate your sound system. In addition, our product range includes:

  • Fixed frames with retractable covers and built in gutters
