Our Guide to Awnings

WHY are awnings the ideal solution for enhancing both indoor and outdoor living?

Awnings are a versatile solution when it comes to providing privacy, blocking out the sun, and protection from the heat and rain. Choosing the right awning can also protect you from the wind and those pesky insects.

Various operating systems can be tailor made to suit specific design applications including easiest and best option when it comes to using and controlling your awnings.

Options vary enormously including traditional awnings and the modern range of ‘’Today’’ awnings. Motorisation is also very popular as it is practical, especially for larger awnings or areas where access is difficult. You can even operate awnings by using your smart device such as your mobile or tablet to create a comfortable environment at any time.

For added protection from extreme elements you can also link your smart device to the Bureau of Meteorology which can send signals to operate the blind depending on weather conditions. Now that’s really smart. Wind and sun sensors can also operate awnings depending on climate conditions. This feature helps protect you and the awning from Australia’s climate extremes.

So where do you start when choosing the right awnings for your special situation?
