Straight Drop Awnings can be used as a shading system for outdoor entertaining areas, such as decks and patios, or can be installed on the outside of a window; providing shade for the interior without intruding on your interior décor. Straight Drop Awnings, as the name suggests, run at a right angle to the ground. This means they do not protrude very far and are a great solution for windows next to fences, or entertaining areas next to pathways where easy access is necessary.
Choose from a range of beautiful acrylic and canvas fabrics, or choose a sunscreen fabric for superior protection from harsh UV rays. Straight Drop Awnings can also be made in clear PVC plastic, allowing protection from weather without the obstruction of views.
Straight Drop Awnings usually operate by crank control, which is simple and easy to use and requires little effort or force. For extra convenience, why not automate your awnings? With sun and wind sensors, your awnings can automatically retract in extreme weather to avoid damage and increase their lifespan. Motorised awnings can also be linked to your home automation system, ensuring total ease of control. Save energy and enjoy comfortable living with WYNMOTION motorised and automated systems!
The main styles of Straight Drop Awning are as follows.
- Straight Drop Awning (Standard) – This awning does not require posts or channels. Rather, when fully rolled down, the fabric fastens at the base using either straps or clips.
- Cable Guide Awning – With a Cable Guide system, the fabric is attached to discreet metal cables which run down the side of the Awning. This is a particularly strong system and offers excellent resistance to wind.
- Zip Channel Awning – In the Zip Channel Awning, the fabric is held in channels using an internal zip. This method of securing the fabric stops it from dislodging in strong wind and makes it the most secure of the channel systems.
