Benefits of Fold Arm Awnings

Adjustable, durable, retractable and stylish are just some of the benefits of fold arm awnings. Apart from sheltering windows and doorways, this multi-purpose shade solution is also popular for providing shelter at pool sides and other outdoor entertainment areas. The main attraction of fold arm awnings is that they are retractable, unlike fixed awnings that are constantly exposed to all types of weather conditions.

Fold arm awnings can be compared to a tree that transform patios and deck areas into shady havens on hot summer days. Elegant and unobtrusive, fold arm awnings are a budget-friendly answer to improve outdoor lifestyles. These energy-efficient shade solutions are both affordable and reliable.

Adjustable Comfort

Another advantage of fold arm awnings is their ease of operation. The aluminium powder-coated arms operate with the push of a button to extend or retract across the entertainment area. Manually-operated versions are also available. The high standard of the materials used – aluminium and top quality imported stain-resistant and colour-dyed canvas – ensures low maintenance and longevity of use.


Fold arm awnings are durable. Unlike their fixed counterparts that are constantly subjected to all types of weather conditions, fold arm awnings can be safely tucked away from harsh sunlight, wind and rain when not in use.

Energy Efficiency

Folding arm awnings are an energy-efficient and budget-friendly solution to providing much needed shade at outdoor areas during South Africa’s hot summer months. Unlike umbrellas or other temporary shade solutions, fold arm awnings are a reliable and affordable weather-proofing solution. They can reduce solar heat by as much as 77% and help to save energy heating costs during colder weather.

Guaranteed Affordability

The advantages of fold arm awnings far outweigh the cost of your investment. Top-quality materials are used in the manufacture of these awnings that, if properly cared for, will give you countless years of service.
