Zip channel awnings allow you to fully enclose an alfresco area, keeping insects and the elements out for all-weather, year-round outdoor entertaining. The sleek, modern design of our channel awning uses zip locking technology to add tension to the fabric. As the blind lowers, it locks neatly into a zip mechanism between two side channels on either side of the awning.
Amaru's custom-made zip channel 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 custom zip channel awnings can be operated in a choice of three opening combinations:
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. Zip awnings can also be installed on the wall over windows, doors and other openings, allowing them to pass down over the top of them.

Zip channel awnings not only offer protection from the sun and wind but by allowing you to fully enclose your outdoor spaces, they keep out insects, frost, dust and rain.
Installing zip channel awnings on windows helps improve home energy efficiency by keeping sun and heat off your windows during the summer and blocking frost in winter. When used as alfresco blinds, they improve the effectiveness of patio heaters.
