Our standard awnings combine superior quality with great value for money. Finished to a very high specification, they have a strong lightweight metal frame with powder coated aluminium arms and a 40 x 40mm torsion bar. They can be opened and closed easily and smoothly using the winding handle on the left hand side (see pictures to the right). The awning can be opened as much or as little as you like up to the maximum projection. The specially designed elliptical arms are adjustable to enable you to alter the slope of the awning from almost horizontal to a relatively steep tilt of approximately 35 degrees from the horizontal. The aluminium front bar ensures the fabric hangs smoothly.
Torison bar: 40mm x 40mm
Alu roller: Diameter 78mm
Alu front bar: 56 x 43mm
Alu support arms: 59 x 31mm, 51 x 26mm
We test our fabrics using the leading testing agency Intertek to establish the level of UV protection afforded by the various colours. All fabrics tested (from the lightest ivory, to the darkest) had a Rated UPF of 50+, meaning a maximum of 2% of UV rays will pass through the fabric.
Our awnings are designed to attach to the wall and are supplied with two or three brackets (depending on the size of the awning you order) and expandable fixing bolts. The awnings are easy to fit and come with full fitting instructions. With the correct tools they should not take more than two hours to fit.
The awning is easily detached from the wall brackets for winter storage, should you choose, although it is fine to leave it out all through the winter. We also offer optional protective storage bags.
