Awnings are quickly becoming a popular feature for the modern home or business. With a retractable awning you can create a perfect gathering space outside of your home to attract family and friends for enjoyable parties without having to worry too much about the weather. They are also perfect for businesses looking to catch the eye of various passers-by. With updated technology, awnings are less hassle and more fun than ever before.
Our sales team can help you choose the perfect style, material and mechanism for your home. These are the different types of awnings that you can find at Clear Blinds Australia.
A retractable awning is one of the most common options for the home or business. They can be made from mesh, canvas or PVC-coated materials in a variety of colours.
Many people in Melbourne enjoy having a retractable awning over their patios and porches because they offer the homeowners the flexibility of rolling it out for specific occasions and then rolling it back up until it is ready to be used again. When hosting a party it can be much less stressful to have it held on a back porch rather than inside, and a retractable awning gives some peace of mind against inclement weather as well as shade against the heat of the afternoon.
A retractable awning is also a valuable addition to many businesses. Having displays or dining tables in front of a store can attract additional customers and diners, but people will not linger as long if they are standing in bright sunlight. Retractable awnings can be pulled down during business hours and then rolled up again after it closes.
The main drawback to a retractable or folding arm awning is it is not a permanent structure. When it gets too windy it can be damaged, and so owners have to keep an eye on the weather.
Our outdoor window awnings are fashioned from a large piece of shade weave or PVC material and can be hung horizontally outside a window to provide additional protection against sun, wind and rain. The material is attached to metal guides or drop arms and installed in the home. These awnings are more permanent fixtures to a home than the retractable awnings. We have many different colours, materials and designs to match any home’s décor.
