This month we focus on Awnings and meeting the Making Shade Team.

Product Focus - Awnings

Awnings are perfect for overhead sun protection, minimising harmful UV rays and maximising heat reduction. They provide hasslefree shade in Summer and retract to make the most of the Winter sun.

Lateral Arm Awnings

The Fetuna casette has a streamlined design where the fabric is fully enclosed away from the elements.

The Horizon has a visible valance when retracted, adding a splash of colour and interest

to the side of your place.

Spring Arm Awning

A great solution for window shading and interior privacy. Designed with interior climate

and solar protection in mind.
