OUTDOOr Awnings FOR YOUR Gold Coast PROPERTY
Exterior or outdoor Awnings are made in a wide variety of functional designs, patterns and colours for two important reasons – to provide you with optimum shade and protection from the damaging rays of the sun and to enhance the appearance of your home by blending with its architectural design.
Whether you need a splash of colour or subtle protection for the sun you can’t go wrong in choosing outdoor awnings to offer shade, enhance design and keep your home cooler.
Folding Arm Awnings
Designed for sun protection and extend your outdoor living area. This awning is mounted directly onto your wall or under the eave; special brackets have been designed to accommodate this mounting. A weather box is an optional extra.
Full Cassette Folding Arm Awnings allows the fabric to be fully protected when rolled in.
These awnings can be extended or retracted by either a manual crank drive, or motorised – either way the awning can be fully extended or only partially extended.
Variable Pitch Arms are an optional extra which allows greater adjustment in both vertical and horizontal pitch. Care must be taken when winding the variable pitch arms.
Motion sensors can be hidden away in the front bar of your motorised awning. Once the wind blows and the awning starts to move around, the sensor is activated and the awning will automatically close.
Wind sensors can be fitted near your motorised awning and will activate when they get continuous seconds of wind at the speed specified by the sensor. The Awning will then automatically close.
Fabric: The preferred fabric is Draylon, but Canvas, Vinyl or Mesh can be also used. (Please ask for advice.)
Gear Operated Straight Drop Blind
This is another method of winding up large blinds without visible ropes & pulleys, and is wound up and down with a crank handle. Fabric is rolled around a top tube with a fitted gear box then wound up using a crank handle.
The bottom rail is finished off with a sleek pocket to hide the bottom rail, or a powder coated rail as an optional extra.
This design is preferable for wide awnings and the method of operation makes it suitable for the elderly, being easier to wind the blind up and down.
Gear Operated Blind with Channel Guide has been successfully used up to 6m in width with certain fabrics. This type of blind has been used to enclose carports, verandahs and patios and is locked down with stainless steel pins and then tensioned via the gearbox. Motorised Channel Guide Blinds have been used to divide rooms, e.g. Home theatre areas or rumpus rooms.
Stainless Steel Wire Guides can also be added where the blind is lowered from top to bottom, being guided by stainless wires and fittings running vertically on either side of the blind. A head box is optional.
Motorised Drop Blinds are operated by remote control and can have a sun and wind sensor attached so they are completely automated. When the sun is shining on the area the blinds will roll down, and if there is enough wind (sensor is adjustable) the blinds will retract up fully.
This type of awning is also suitable when the walkway space beside a house or unit is narrow, eliminating the need for projecting arms.
Fabric … Available in Draylon, Canvas, Vinyl or Mesh, all with a 5 year guarantee against UV breakdown, or PVC Clear or Tint.
Twist Lock Channel Guide
A robust blind that will suit any style of house. The channels and brackets are powder coated to any standard colour to suit your decor and give a sleek and minimal effect.
Manually operated by twisting the bottom rail and locking the blind into the desired position. This blind can be stopped at any of the predetermined positions of the drop. The fabric is rolled around a galvanized top tube with a spring tensioning system that can be altered to your desired requirements. Best suited for smaller openings.
Fabric: Acrylic, Canvas, Vinyl, Mesh. Clear PVC can also be used.
The Spring Roller awning has a top roller fixed within a weather box or brackets, with a 38mm bottom tube fixed in a pocket. It can be operated up and down by simply pulling on the bottom bar.
As this awning has a spring loaded roller, the blind is under tension so will roll up once unsecured. Saddles are attached to the bottom rail, and stops are attached to the structure on either side at the desired level for locking off.
Fabric … Acrylic, Canvas, Vinyl, Mesh. Clear PVC can also be used.
The most common cause for repairs is high winds and storms.
Always roll up awnings in high winds and storms.
