Folding arm awnings are primarily for solar shading, to cast a shadow, reduce glaring light, block out UV rays and solar heat gain, awnings should be retracted in strong winds and heavy rain, most folding arm awnings are tested to level 5 on the Beaufort scale.
We can supply manually operated folding arm awnings via detachable rod and crank, although not advisable for larger awnings.
Electric operation is the most popular way of operating all our folding arm awning systems, which come as standard with a handheld remote control transmitter that can work up to a distance of 20 metres, allowing you to deploy your awning from most anywhere in your property.
Multi channel transmitters are available to control other accessories such as the heating and LED lighting systems, drop down valances and automatic sun and wind sensors.
Accessories (Lights, Heat)
All of our folding arm awnings can be supplied with a number of optional extras and accessories. These will improve and refine the environment created under the awning – perfect for hotels, restaurants and residential spaces. From variable LED lighting that can create just the right tone after dark, and controllable heaters that will keep your guests cosy till the early hours, we have everything you could possibly need.
