Folding Arm Awnings

Folding arm awnings make sense… and your life so much easier.

Courtyards and alfresco areas are all about relaxed enjoyment and then easily packing everything away, so why not have a folding arm awning as well?

The absolute joy of a Great Western Shade folding arm awning is that they do the hard work for you. The super strong mechanical arm unfolds and retracts the durable fabric awning, either by manual operation or via a motor that’s operated at the push of a button.

It sure beats an umbrella on a stand and is so much more versatile than a space invading, immovable carport.

Our folding arm awnings can be anything from a few metres wide up to almost 20 metres, where a second arm would be required. The depth can extend to 3.6 metres. That’s a huge amount of coverage for the average Perth backyard.

It’s Different to The Retractable Pergola

Apart from both products having fold-away mechanisms, there isn’t much similarity between the retractable pergola and the folding arm awning. The pergola is fixed to the ground by posts and has a waterproof fabric membrane above that can protect you from the elements or be drawn back partially or entirely to allow air and sun in.

The folding arm awning fixes to your eaves or wall. Not requiring posts, it doesn’t steal any space from your living area. It provides total coverage when folded out, can be tilted 5 to 50 degrees to counter the sun and can be folded back partially or wholly to the wall for unobstructed open-air access.

The real worth of our folding arm awnings is how easy it is to spread shade over your backyard and really enjoy this wonderful Australian climate. Our folding arm awnings are perfect for letting the great outdoors in while still protecting your family’s eyes and skin, your home’s fabrics and floors, plus your pets and plants from the threat of UV rays.
