Spotlight On: Pivot Arm Awnings

Looking for an awning that’ll add extra shade to your outdoor area, while also helping to regulate the temperature within your home? Consider pivot arm awnings! These awnings have many benefits and make the perfect addition to your outdoor area.

What are pivot arm awnings?

Pivot arm awnings are an outdoor awning designed to act as an extension of your roof, providing additional shade, sun protection and temperature regulation for your home.

How do pivot arm awnings work?

These awnings operate with a pivoting arm that retracts into an arc shape. Pivot awnings are spring-loaded to retain excellent fabric tension.

With awning widths up to 5m, they're one of the most popular outdoor window treatments available as they can provide an additional layer of sun protection for your home, skin and furniture!

The benefits

Heavy duty

Pivot arm awnings are engineered to last, built with heavy-duty materials capable of handling scorching heat, intense wind and heavy rain.

They also keep your interior looking fresher for longer, as the fabric absorbs UV rays that would otherwise fade your flooring, carpets, and furniture.

Energy efficient

Pivot arm awnings are a fantastic way to keep your home energy-efficient. The thick fabric creates a barrier that hot air cannot penetrate easily, helping to conserve energy inside the home as you become less reliant on air conditioning.

Depending on the fabric you choose for your awning, your home can become up to four times more energy efficient.

Helps to circulate air

Pivot awnings are a fantastic way to circulate air through your home. This style of awning sits hanging over your window, allowing you to keep them open and let cool, fresh air in without welcoming harmful UV rays or uncomfortable heat.

Low maintenance

Our pivot arm awnings come with fabric that's incredibly easy to clean. A simple wipe down with a wet cloth and you're good to go. This low maintenance window treatment makes for a handy addition to any home!

Customisable options available

Pivot awnings are available in a wide range of colours to ensure your home décor is consistent and you have complete freedom to choose the style you like best.

These awnings are also made to fit the precise measurements of what you need; there's no need to find the “closest fit” and try modifying the size yourself, which is timely and a waste of materials.

To ensure you have the right size awning, one of our friendly consultants will come out to your home to measure the space and provide you with a quote. They can also help you to choose the perfect colour awning. ­

Where to install pivot arm awnings

Pivot arm awnings can be used on most windows and doors around the home with ease. They are particularly useful for casement windows, which open outwards, as they allow plenty of space for the window without obstructing the movement of the awning. They are also a great fit for bi folding or sliding doors, as other doors tend to extend too far outwards, ensuring that you can access your home even whilst the awning is closed.
