Auto Guide Awnings

Auto Guide Awnings, which are also known as lock arm awnings, are one of the most popular outdoor blind systems. The system allows the blind to be raised and lowered to any position by sliding the arms on the guide rods. This flexibility allows you to better control the amount of light entering through a window.

More

The Auto Guide Awning is a simple robust awning. One of the main strengths of an Auto Guide Awning is that it does not project far from the wall, so if a path or driveway is close to the window, the awning will not obstruct access. The awning covers the entire window and so is suitable for facing any direction for sun protection.

Features:

  • Durable fabrics: The fabrics we use are manufactured to suit Australian conditions. So durable, they’ll look great for many years.
  • Extensive range of styles & designs: We have an Automatic Lock-Arm Fabric Awning to suit a variety of situations and house designs.
  • Technically superior materials: We make our awnings from components that have been engineered to last in Australia’s harsh conditions.
  • Control: User friendly self-locking arms allow for easy adjustment by hand or by a pull stick.

Auto Locking Arms are available in 150, 300 and 450mm projection. The greater projection will give greater ventilation through an open window. The top roller can be covered by a hood. The hood and front rail are roll-formed Colourbond steel and all other components are galvanized steel with the option of Stainless Steel. Drummond’s Blinds & Canvas has access to the latest fabric ranges from around the world. This means you can find a colour, pattern and texture which will increase the look and value of your home.

FIXED AWNINGS

Fixed Awnings and canopies are perfect for patios or commercial spaces where protection from rain and sun is essential.

Fixed Awnings protect your valuable carpet, curtains and furniture from the fading effects of ultraviolet rays, as well as reducing the heat load and cooling costs of your home during the summer. The result is more comfort during the day and quicker cooling at night. Fixed Awnings can be custom made to any size and the designs can be a standard shape or totally unique to blend with any type of architectural design.

More

Fixed Awnings are made of extruded aluminium or metal frames (which can be powder coated) that are shaped by a computerised bender. Fixed Awnings can be mounted over windows or doorways of homes, shops and restaurants and can also be integrated with illuminated signage to promote your business.

FOLDING ARM AWNINGS

Folding Arm Awnings are retractable awnings that provide a fashionable extension of your shaded living area. This makes it particularly suitable for a terrace, patio, courtyard, balcony or large floor to ceiling windows.

Folding Arm Awnings can be manually adjusted from a horizontal to an almost vertical position by simple crank handle operation. Folding Arm Awnings allow for either single operation pitch control or an individual arm operation if necessary.

More

When Folding Arm Awnings are extended, the shaded space is completely unobstructed by posts or beams. Should you fully retract the awning, it will neatly fit onto a roller tube, leaving no unsightly structures.

PIVOT ARM AWNINGS

Pivot Arm Awnings are ideal for shading a huge variety of windows. Pivot Arm Awnings shade the window yet allow the air to flow around it which makes them ideal for those hard to reach windows operated via an internal cord lock, winch or motor.

More

Pivot Arm Awnings operate by arms pivoting in an arc which moves fabric to extend and retract. The benefits are a larger area between the awning and window which enables greater air circulation while still allowing wind-out windows to open. Pivot Arms on the slide rail can be locked at various positions. The awning can be fully retracted, extended horizontally (like an overhead canopy), or extended to an almost vertical position. They will provide shade over doorways (whilst operational) or over smaller patio areas.

Pivot Arm Awnings bring you the elegance of style, protection and cooling so often required. They will protect your valuable carpet, curtains and furniture from the fading effects of ultraviolet rays and minimise cooling costs. Most important of all, Pivot Arm Awnings will reduce total heat load on and in your home. The result will be more comfort during the day and quicker cooling at night.
