In Melbourne, Awnings that withstand the crazy weather conditions are a must
Yarra Shade - Awnings
Our range of shop awnings includes custom made Wedge, French, Barrel and Dutch hood awnings to any size. Shops generally use Planosol; however we do also offer PVC and Atmosphere awning fabrics, which can be branded in most circumstances. The materials used for our shop awnings have been chosen due to their ability to protect buildings from weather conditions for a period of up to 10 years. We use aluminium or steel for the frame that the canopy stretches over, which is powder coated in Dulux powder coat paint to prevent corrosion and ensure a long lifespan for your awning.
Folding Arm Awnings
Folding Arm Awnings can be described as a Mediterranean style awning, which incorporates the added benefit of retracting back to the wall when not in use. These awnings can be manually operated with a crank handle (up to 6m wide) or a motorised control with a motion wind sensor for safety at any width.
The motion sensors and motors are made by Somfy and can be controlled by remote control or a hard wired wall switch. There are several models including fully cassetted units where the fabric disappears into a discrete cassette mounted to the wall. There are also semi cassetted units or the recommended open units where the mechanism is exposed but generally covered by a colorbond pelmet for aesthetics and protection. The open units are of commercial quality and provide excellent reliability and value for money in all settings.
A valance is also available for these awnings to ensure they add aesthetic value to your home or commercial property. Folding Arm Awnings are suitable for most walls as long as they are approximately 3m. The maximum width of a Folding Arm Awning is 12m and its maximum projection is 4m. The width of a Folding Arm Awning must be at least 40cm wider than its projection for structural purposes. There are 5m projection models available, however their reliability is in question, as testing is still being completed and therefore we prefer not to use them.
The materials we use for our Folding Arm Awnings have been chosen on the basis of their versatility, shade provision, waterproof applications and visual appeal. They include Atmosphere awning fabric, Farrari Soltis awning fabric, Planosol.
