4 Reasons to Choose Folding Arm Awnings

Relishing the alfresco life is one of the biggest draw-cards of living in Perth. So when it comes to your outdoor area, there’s no better way to get the most out of your space than with chic and versatile folding arm awnings. With tons of uses and next to no maintenance, they’re a handy and practical solution for a comfortable alfresco the whole family can enjoy.

4 Reasons to Choose Folding Arm Awnings
If you’re looking for a way to maximise usage and totally transform your outdoor space, here’s why you should consider folding arm awnings.

Advantages of Outdoor Awnings

1. They’re Fully Retractable

As you might have guessed from the name, the beauty of folding arm awnings is in their rather awesome ability to fold. If direct sun is an issue when you’re trying to enjoy brunch on the patio, simply extend them out for some shade or cover. When the weather’s cooperating, fold them away with the touch of a button to claim back an unobstructed view. Unlike fixed awnings, folding arm awnings are fully retractable, so they’re completely out of sight when not in use.

2. They’re Durable

Because they’re fully retractable, folding arm awnings have a much longer life-span than their fixed counterparts, who are far more likely to be damaged by the weather. When the rain, wind and elements hit, folding arm awnings can be, you guessed it, folded away to keep them protected. Plus, exposure to the sun can cause the fabric on your awnings to fade over time, which means that folding arm awnings will stay looking good as new for much longer.

3. They’re Stylish

Folding arm awnings are available in a wide range of fabric colours, and the durable aluminium frames are white powder-coated to further enhance the design of your outdoor area. With a colour to beautifully match any space, and the option to retract completely for a sleeker look and unobstructed views, folding arm awnings are a practical and stylish way to boost your outdoor use, all year round. High-quality folding arm awnings are also extremely low-maintenance, only needing the occasional clean to look their best.

4. They’re Multi-Purpose

Aside from looking stunning in your outdoor space, folding arm awnings can be a solution to shield areas all over your home. No longer only reserved for use above windows and doors, modern awnings can now be used to protect an entire pool area, car space, or to create an outdoor dining and entertaining space. Retractable awnings are also useful for extending an existing patio roof at certain times of the day when you are more affected by the sun, or when you need a larger entertainment area.
