Zip/Channel Awnings

The sleek, modern design of our zip channel awning locks the fabric into a zip mechanism that runs neatly between two side channels either side of the awning. This zip locking technology adds tension to the fabric, allowing you to effortlessly enclose entertainment areas or protect windows with a modern or traditional look.

Fabric Choices

We can create zip channel 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 custom zip channel awnings can be operated in a choice of three opening combinations:

"Thank you for the excellent service. Nicole, Peter and the installation staff have all been extremely helpful, efficient, professional and easy to communicate with.”

Suitable for these areas

Side channel awnings are perfect for alfresco living and entertaining areas, including balconies, decks, patios and verandahs. They can be mounted in the spaces between posts and can sit on top of balustrading or pass in front of it to ensure complete protection. These awnings can also be installed on the wall over your windows, doors and other openings, allowing them to pass down over the top of them.












Colour Choices

To ensure that your channel 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!

"The price was one of the lowest that we got while comparing rates with other companies. They said it would take them just around three weeks and they have delivered on what they have promised. Installation was quick and smooth, very organised too. Quality of work was so good given the amount of time they had. We will definitely work with them again”

FAQs about Zip Channel Awnings

Are these awnings suitable for light control?

The great thing about these window awnings is that they can be stopped wherever you want between the top and bottom of the opening. This provides you with maximum light (and privacy) control.

What fabric should I choose for privacy or light blockage?

If you want to block as much light as possible when the awning is closed or you want to keep the prying eyes of your neighbours at bay, you will find that our extensive acrylic or canvas range will best meet your needs.
