Motorised Awnings

Being able to control our awnings at the touch of a button is a luxury that many cannot afford. We are making motorised awnings more affordable than ever. No more struggling with a heavy or awkward manual awning – simply press a button or even programme a timer so that all the hard work is done for you.

Motorised Awnings

What types of awning can be motorised?

Almost every awning in our range can be motorised, providing you with a luxury experience in every room of your home.


For information on the fabrics and colours available, please see the relevant page for each type of awning. Most of the same options are available – the only difference is we use stronger components and fit a motor so that the awning can be operated electronically.

"Can’t fault Amaru, they came up country (85K) and were prepared to spend time going over samples, they were very patient, knowledgeable and pleasant. When the product arrived and it took all day to install, they were organised. We had an issue with the electric motors in the first week that was fixed immediately. They were very professional to work with. I visited the showroom and got wonderful service.

FAQs about Motorised Awnings

What are the benefits of motorisation?

There are a number of benefits to having your awnings motorised, like the use of sensors but most of all we would have to say the biggest benefit is the simplistic ease of operation.

Do I need council approval for installation?

Whilst you shouldn't need to obtain any approvals for most domestic situations, you may require approval for commercial applications and body corporate building management.

What if the power goes out?

If your home experiences a blackout or the motor malfunctions, most awnings can still be operated using a manual override.
