Auto Awning
 
The Canvas Auto Awning has been by far the most popular sun blind for over 50 years due to the soft enhancing look with excellent shade factors as well as a very good air flow allowance for keeping your window area cool.  We have a huge range of colours and fabrics including the most popular Cotton canvas, Mesh/Visiontex, and Acrylic canvases.
 
The Canvas Auto Awning operates with a spring loaded roller and has arms that projects the awning away from the window creating a pocket of air which reduces heat transfer through the glass. The arms lock into the vertical guides at each side that can be adjusted for the desired height. You could expect to get up to 35 years out of some canvases and even then in most cases we can just change the cloth only saving you money these are called RE-CLOTHS, ask us how much you'll save.

The Fixed Guide Awning has excellent shade factors usually used on high windows or windows with limited access.  We have a huge range of colours and fabrics including the most popular Cotton canvas, Mesh/Visiontex, and Acrylic canvases.
 
The Fixed Guide Awning is similar to the Auto Awning only without the arms at the sides, instead metal runners are bolted to the bottom rail. The guides are fixed on the angle which bottom rail runs up and down on, as its name suggests. The awning is generally drawn down by rope which in most cases runs through pulleys to either outside or inside, which is tied to a cleat to hold the awning in the desired position.  Also this awning can be made motorized or crank operation depending on your window access and budget.
