A Pivot Arm Awning projects outwards from the window top and is kept at an angle via a set of arms. Adjust pivot arm awnings for angle or pitch to control sunlight and shade while still allowing open windows and airflow, even when fully extended. Amaru makes custom awnings in modern and traditional colours and styles to suit any home.
Amaru offers two distinct pivot arm awning styles. Choose from our Melbourne-made awnings built specifically for Australian homes and climate or our modern European designer range. We can cover all budgets and design needs for any residential or commercial pivot arm awning application across these two systems.
Amaru's custom-made pivot arm awnings can be created from various materials that perform different functions depending on the elements you wish to block and the aesthetic you desire.
Our pivot arm window awnings can be operated in a choice of two opening combinations:
You can install pivot arm awnings on most styles of window and other openings around the home. They are well suited for use with casement windows that open outwards at a similar angle to the awning. They can also shade and shelter doorways and bi-fold and sliding doors. Pivot arm awnings can be motorised, making them an excellent outdoor blind for multi-storey and hard to access windows.
To ensure the best custom pivot arm awnings in Melbourne are a perfect complement for your home, Amaru offers an extensive range of colours across our awning shade fabric options.

The angle created between the wall and the awning lets you open windows even with the blinds lowered. Air flows freely under the blind while direct sunlight is kept from reaching and heating windows
Standard pivot arm awning installation includes a headbox, which protects the awning and roller mechanism when not in use. Awning headboxes are colour-matched to your home guttering or custom powder-coated to the colour of your choice.
Pivot arm awnings are operated via crank or motorised control, eliminating the need for cords or chains making them completely child and pet safe.
For the ultimate poetic feedback loop, Amaru can install solar-powered motorised awnings that let you harness the suns energy to block sunlight, keeping your home cooler in summer, improving your home’s energy efficiency and carbon footprint.
If you have chosen to motorise your external blinds and awnings, you can also add an environmental sensor that can detect wind, UV levels and rain and open or close automatically as programmed. A sensor powered awning can help you make the most of passive solar energy efficiency, keeping your home shaded in summer and making the most of the winter sun's warmth.
Motorised pivot arm awnings remove the need to battle the elements to adjust them. Your exterior blind controls can be located conveniently and comfortably indoors, away from the weather.
