Retractable awnings, also known as folding arm and cassette awnings, are the perfect solution for extending your alfresco and entertaining areas and offer exceptional protection against the elements. Folding arm awnings anchor to a building or structure and extend outwards over the space instead of downward; as such, they require no posts or beams, leaving your outdoor living open and clear to enjoy.
Amaru's custom-made retractable 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 retractable folding arm awnings can be operated in a choice of two opening combinations:
Retractable awnings extend your living space and provide all-weather protection for alfresco entertaining areas. Our made-to-measure folding arm awnings can be manufactured with a massive span to ensure your family has ample outdoor shelter from sun and rain. Because they extend out from a structure, they make an excellent awning choice for uncovered balconies and courtyards, shading swimming pools and for creating covered outdoor areas around your home or business.
To ensure the best custom water proof retractable awnings are a perfect complement for your home, Amaru offers an extensive range of colours across our awning shade fabric options. From neutrals through to bold colours and traditional stripes. Need help deciding on the perfect shade for your folding arm awning? Our professional home décor consultants are here to help.
* Actual fabric colours may appear differently due to variations in monitors and browsers. The best way to ensure your colour choices are correct is to view a physical sample by booking a free measure and quote or visiting our showroom to see our folding arm awnings.
There are a number of additional features and options that can be added to your outdoor retractable awnings to enhance their use. Speak with your consultant to see what is possible with your choice of fabric and application.
Not only can we project our awnings up to 4 meters from a structure, but we can also control the gradient pitch by up to 90 degrees for extra control over light, privacy and weather.
Cassette awnings are the perfect choice for large uncovered outdoor areas, as they can be made up to a massive 15m wide.
Home retractable awnings are ideal for providing outdoor areas with shade and UV protection. When positioned close to the house, they can dramatically reduce summer heat both indoors and out.
Amaru only employ reliable trade qualified installers in Melbourne and Canberra to fit our custom blinds and awnings, so you can have complete confidence they will turn up on time and know how to install your retractable awning safely and correctly.
Retractable awnings can be mounted on a wall or off a roof, depending on the size and layout of your outdoor area.
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.
