A Summer Necessity: Straight Drop Awnings

Check out this fantastic piece from our member Macarthur Home Improvements about the virtues of Straight Drop Awnings which are a must for those wanting to enjoy the rest of the summer.

It’s coming up to summer and by-geez aren’t we excited to get the BBQ roaring after a year like this one! If you’re keen to get the family and friends over to enjoy summer in style in South Sydney, we recommend a straight drop awning to upgrade your outdoor area or unit’s balcony.

And here’s why…

They look great!

Straight Drop Awnings are just that. They are Outdoor Blinds that hang “straight” down from the top assembly to the bottom fixings. The Straight Drop Awning is generally installed to fit and operate between 2 “poles”, as they are anchored to an optional frame box (aka Over-Roll Hood) at the top of the Awning and then anchors can be set down at the ground to ensure that they don’t get blown around in the breeze.

The design and installation of the Awnings create a sleek look and act like a temporary “wall” when in use, i.e. acting as a barrier between the weather elements and your protected space. They provide you with privacy when you need it!

Each Awning can be made from as little as 500mm wide and span up to 5600mm wide. If you have an area that is wider than that, it will require more than one Awning to cover the area. There is a limitation on width to ensure maximum protection and ease of operation, otherwise, the weight will be overwhelming for the size and it won’t function as it should.

Shade solutions for summer. Is your home summer ready?

When you first think of summer – what comes to mind? Hot weather, beach days, garden barbeques and endless days spent soaking in the sunshine. It sounds wonderful, but Australian summers are known for their harmful UV rays and harsh elements – not only to our skin, but also to our homes.

If you are someone who enjoys entertaining outside but is in need of some extra protection to help block out the sun and provide some much-needed shelter during the summer season – outdoor awnings are a great, cost-effective solution to creating shade or protection from Australia’s elements.

When selecting your awning, it is important to know that there are several types to choose from, we’ve picked our top three to help you be ready this summer.

Retractable awnings

One of the most popular awnings on the market is retractable awnings. These types of awnings can be extended or retracted depending on the weather conditions. This type of awning is a great option if you wish to use your awning for certain occasions, certain times of the year or when needed – e.g. to provide shelter or shade from hot or rainy days by extending the awning and retracting the awning when it is not required.

There are several variations of retractable awnings available, each with many benefits, unique styles and functionality – we encourage you to discuss your desired look and feel with one of our knowledgeable experts to ensure the right type of awning is chosen.

Vertical awnings

Most modern homes today already have an outdoor covered entertaining area but often these areas are still faced with harsh UV Rays from either the morning or afternoon sun. A great solution is to install Vertical Awnings – a combination of retractable blind technology with weatherproof awning material.

When extended, the awning provides perfect cover from UV Rays and sun glare as well as other weather elements such as wind and rain. If these awnings weren’t smart enough – opt to have motorisation added during installation – providing needed shelter has never been easier – simply control your awnings by a touch of a button.

Fixed awnings

Unlike other awnings, a fixed awning has been designed and manufactured to withstand the harshest of conditions for long periods of time. This makes them the perfect option for those searching for a permanent undercover area.

Fixed awnings are available in a range of materials to suit customers’ needs such as; canopy material, carbolite (a type of resin) and Colourbond. As well as this, fixed awnings are available in an array of shapes, sizes and colours – to help tailor the awning to the customers’ needs and desires.

With the weather starting to heat up and summer just on the horizon, beat the summer rush and contact one of our knowledgeable experts to help find the perfect awning for you.
