Frequently asked questions
What is a pivot arm awning?
A pivot arm awning is a type of exterior covering for a variety of windows and doors. Spring-loaded to keep its fabric taut, this awning uses a rotating arm that extends and retracts along an arc shape for adjustable shade.
How do pivot arm awnings work?
A pivot arm awning works similarly to an auto-lock arm awning but is operated with either a crank or motor. The fabric stretches to the ends of both arms, which pivot around a central point fixed to the wall to control the level of shade.
When lowered to 45 degrees, the fabric blocks direct sunlight while welcoming light from below. Lower the awning further to cover your window or door fully.
Time to enjoy some sunshine? Your awning can be raised and stored inside an optional headbox to safeguard and conceal the roll of fabric. From traditional to fully-enclosed styles, we offer a range of headboxes to suit any taste.
How far out does a pivot arm awnings project?
The projection of a pivot arm awning tends to equal half its length.
At Heritage Blinds & Shutters, our awning specialists will visit your home or business to provide a complimentary measuring and fitting service to ensure your space will enjoy the right amount of coverage.

How do you clean pivot arm awnings?
The best way to clean your pilot arm awning depends on the fabric you have selected. That said, it is generally recommended that you clean your awning with water using a cloth or hose with soft pressure. To avoid creases, please leave the awning to dry completely before rolling it up again.
