Folding Arm Awning Design Options

There are many stylish options available to ensure that a folding arm awning meets your needs and suits your application. Some of the options available include:

  • A full fabric range to suit any decor and style of home. Fabrics available include acrylic or polyester. We are very particular about the fabrics we supply and only use the highest quality ranges.

  • Cassetted Awnings these are a streamlined attractive option. The cassette protects the fabric and arms from the elements as the awning winds back into a stylish aluminium case. The cassette can be powder-coated to match existing paint finishes to blend the awning into the background while not in use. There is an additional cost for a cassetted awning, call us to find out more. Our options include low profile cassette that integrate perfectly with the facade of a building. 

  • Hood - the hood covers the top of the awning and still provides some protection to the arms and framework.

  • Open (no hood)- a modern look that can be the choice for areas where protection is already provided by an eave for example, and because the componentry is not included for the hood the price is reduced.

  • Conservatory Awning - normally remote control operated, conservatory awnings are a great option for a flexible solution to shade requirements. Install where existing framework is in place for example a deck, pergola, skylights etc to create shade when required.

  • Pivot Arm Awning - Certain situations call for a pivot arm awning due to orientation to the sun, requirements for privacy or simply aesthetics. They are generally used as window coverings.  A quality pivot arm awning will look fantastic and provide great sun protection whilst allowing sunlight to still filter through..

Operating options

  • Motorised Awnings - get the shade you need with a single press of a button on a remote control for motorised awnings. There are some installation situations where you physically can't reach the awning for a manual operation (eg awning installed on a roof or over a pergola). And in other situations it is a preference to have a motorised awning, for example so that you don't need to go out in the elements to obtain the shade relief that you need. Operate the awning effortlessly and from within the comforts of your home.
  • Manual operation - a geared crank ensures easy operation that is not difficult to wind. Colour options and variations in length of handles are available.
  • Spring operation - gives you control of the height of the awning and you can secure using either a bolt system or clip option.

Folding Arm Awnings Accessories

  • Remote controls - one touch control with fully programmed remote controls.

  • Wind sensors - minimise the impact of sudden winds or weather events with a wind sensor that will automatically close your awning once the settings are reached.


Folding arm awnings can be used for domestic and commercial situations including back gardens, decks, shopfronts, above windows or doors.

"Awning solves our problem with direct sunlight and difficulty with putting up any other kind of shade. Service was extremely good. Very prompt response, helpful advice and friendly approach. It was refreshing to deal with a supplier who responded straight away to our request and kept us regularly updated on progress."

Alice & Mark 

Folding Arm Awning

"After a number of alternative providers failed to attend scheduled quotation appointments we contact Tim at 4.00pm. Tim was immediately proactive and set an appointment at our house at 8.30 the next day. In the meantime, Tim mailed photographs to give us an indication of his work. True to his word, Tim attended and provided us a quote on the spot. Later that day we accepted and agreed on an installation date. The product was delivered and installed on the agreed date. We are very happy with Tim's service and advice, the product itself and the final result. We would recommend East Coast Shade Design, Thanks."

"The sail that we had installed is excellent in both workmanship and quality. It is better than we imagined and provides us with our desired requirement of privacy and shade. The service provided by Tim is exceptional. His expertise and attention to detail was invaluable enabling us to work together to achieve the desired result even though the area to be covered was unusual and complicated in design.
