Straight Drop Awnings

Being able to protect your home’s alfresco areas from the elements, particularly the sun, can make the space much more usable. As these outdoor awnings drop straight down, they can be used to enclose an area as well as provide shade and protection on windows, balconies and verandahs.

Straight Drop Awnings

Fabric Choices

We can create straight drop awnings using a variety of different materials, ensuring that you can achieve the look and level of durability that you desire:


What opening combinations can we have?

Our drop down awnings can be operated with the following mechanism:



  • Manual operation
  • Turn the handle to raise or lower the awnings
  • Tension the fabric by clipping it into one of the bottom set points
  • Crank handle can be installed either left or right of the awning

These awnings are installed above an opening and feature a weighted bottom rail that’s attached to the fabric that sits parallel with the head box/roller tube. When lowered the bottom rail is secured with various bottom clip options and then the crank handle is used to tension the fabric.

"Just a short note to say thank you to Amaru for the wonderful job recently done. The whole experience was so professional and we are delighted with how great our windows look. Thanks again guys."

They can also be used to protect windows, doors and other openings from prying eyes and the elements.
