Also known as folding arm and cassette awnings, they are the perfect solution for extending your outdoor living and entertaining areas. They are designed to withstand even the toughest of treatment whilst offering superior protection against the elements. Retractable awnings in Australia are comprised of robust components, ensuring that they will function perfectly for as long as possible. They can also be motorised or fitted with sensors for automatic operation.
Where to Use
Retractable awnings are primarily designed for the protection of outdoor living and entertaining areas, as they can be manufactured with a massive span that ensures the space below will be sheltered from sun and rain. They can also be used on other outdoor areas around your home or business (including balconies, patios and courtyards). Some homeowners use them as retractable window awnings or to protect doors and other openings but this is not overly popular.
Caring for your Awnings
Cleaning motorised or manual retractable awnings preserves and extends their looks and service life. You can clean the top and underside using a soft brush or broom to remove any accumulated debris. For a more thorough clean, you can rinse the garden hose over the top of the home retractable awning – being very careful to keep the stream of water away from the motor (if you have one). Ensure that you allow the fabric to dry completely before retracting the awning.
