Pivot Arm Awnings

Pivot arm awnings project outwards from the top of the opening at an angle, creating an arc that allows air to flow behind the fabric. Their design enables the window to be opened whilst the awning is extended, allowing for maximum movement without sacrificing protection.

"Recently renovated our whole house and contacted Amaru through word of mouth of colleagues…couldn’t be more satisfied with the end result! They came out and advised on products to suit our budget and went further to match our décor and chose a colour to match in perfectly!! It was ordered and installed in the timeframe they specified! I WILL be recommending this company to others…very professional…couldn’t be happier with our experience. Thank you!

Suitable for these areas

Pivot arm awnings can be used on most windows and other openings around the home. They are particularly suited to casement windows (which open outwards at a similar angle to the awning), as they allow plenty of space for the mechanism to function without hindering function. They’re also a great fit for bifolding and sliding doors or over doors that open into your home.
















Colour Choices

To ensure that your awnings are the perfect complement for your home, Amaru offers an extensive range of colours across all of our fabric options. Go neutral or stand out from the crowd by choosing a brighter shade. Not sure what colour you want? Our décor consultants are here to help!

*Due to variations in monitors and browsers, colours may appear differently. The best way to ensure that your colour choices are correct is to view a sample by booking a free measure or visiting our showroom.
