What is a folding arm awning and how does it work?

A folding arm awning is a flexible system designed to cover areas such as pools, carports, decks, patios, or any area where you’d like protection from the sun and other natural elements.

Two arms extend the awning horizontally and then retract it back completely into the cassette, keeping it protected when not in use.

A folding arm awning offers maximum support and stability, meaning it doesn’t require posts or beams.

Features of folding arm awnings

Our friendly and knowledgeable team can explain the many features and benefits of installing our folding arm awnings at your home or business.

Convenient operation

You can operate folding arm awnings manually by using a crank handle, or have them automated so you can deploy or retract the awnings with the simple push of a button.

At iQ Shutters, we also give you the option to install a sensor. That way, your awning will retract automatically when the weather becomes windy or rainy, and extend again when it’s nice and sunny.

Easy to maintain

Folding arm awnings are constructed using durable waterproof or sunscreen fabrics designed to withstand unpredictable weather conditions. While they shouldn’t need cleaning for many years, they can be easily cleaned with a high-pressure hose or hand scrub.

Stylish look to suit any home or business

Folding arm awnings instantly increase the appeal of your outdoor area. You can choose from a range of colours in either waterproof or sunscreen fabrics to suit the look of your home or business.

There’s also the option of three different cassette types, depending on where your awning will be installed and how much protection you want for the components.

There’s no unsightly posts or beams and the entire system folds out of the way when not in use, maximising your outdoor living space.

Energy saving

Installing a folding arm awning can increase the energy efficiency of your home by shading your windows from the elements. This means your home will stay warmer in winter and cooler in summer, reducing electrical costs.

Made locally

At iQ Shutters we use products made on the Sunshine Coast, so not only will you be purchasing a high-quality product, you’ll also be supporting local businesses.
