Commercial Folding Arm Awning Design
Folding Arm Awning Systems are a counter-levered awning systems. They can cover areas from 3 metres up to 14 metres widths with 1.5 metres and 4 metres projection generally without the requirement of a specific structural support frame. They are used primarily as a sunshade however they can manage some light rain and wind with the correct installation set up and location. They are the ideal option for projects requiring compact slimline design and good aesthetics.
Ideal for Restaurants, Pubs, Clubs, Hotel and Outdoor Venues.
Often recommended for residential and hospitality venues for clean appearance and as a cost effective measure. As long as there is sufficient structural support in the wall or frame a folding arm awning will have very minimal design impact on the surrounding area. Best when fixed into Steel with minimum 5mm wall, concrete, structural brick, stone or timber.
Advanced Fabrics for solar protection and wet weather
The traditional canvas fabrics have given way for more advanced technical fabrics made from Acrylic or PVC materials with additional treatments like Teflon or scotch guard which do not rot or go mouldy and are easily cleaned. There is a large range of custom colours available in the Dulux and Interpon Powder Coating ranges. When there is a greater need for weather protection Folding arm awnings are general replaced for full waterproof systems which are more stable in the wind and their ability to disperse water. However, Folding Arm Awnings will perform well in low wind locations such as protected terraces, cafes and ground level gardens.
