Being able to protect your home’s alfresco areas from the elements, particularly the sun, can make the space much more usable. As these outdoor awnings drop straight down, they can be used to enclose an area as well as provide shade and protection on windows, balconies and verandahs.
We can create straight drop awnings using a variety of different materials, ensuring that you can achieve the look and level of durability that you desire:
Our drop down awnings can be operated with the following mechanism:
These awnings are installed above an opening and feature a weighted bottom rail that’s attached to the fabric that sits parallel with the head box/roller tube. When lowered the bottom rail is secured with various bottom clip options and then the crank handle is used to tension the fabric.
"Just a short note to say thank you to Energy Window Fashions for the wonderful job recently done. The whole experience was so professional and we are delighted with how great our windows look. Thanks again guys."
Outdoor straight drop awnings are best suited to alfresco living and entertaining areas, as they allow you to enclose the space. This ensures improved privacy and protection against the elements. They can also be used to protect windows, doors and other openings from prying eyes and the elements.
To ensure that your straight drop outdoor awnings are the perfect complement for your home, EWF offers an extensive range of colours across all of our fabric options.
