Discover the benefits of straight drop awnings

Easy operation

With no fixed guide, crank handle operated straight drop awnings can be raised or lowered and locked at any angle. Each awning has a gear box with a ratio of 9:1 for simple operation, and several hold-down options to suit most applications.

Protection from the elements

Outdoor straight drop awnings shield your deck, patio or balcony from intense weather, protecting against UV rays and water damage. Available in mesh, canvas, PVC and acrylic fabrics, these strong awnings can be left down in moderate wind.

Outdoor privacy

Want to entertain with family and friends outside? A retractable straight drop roll down awning screen provides extra privacy whenever desired. Enjoy uninterrupted time together in a peaceful and secluded space.

A touch of luxury

Available with or without a hood, this contemporary covering is perfect for patios, decks, pergolas, balconies and external windows. Create a beautiful design feature with a variety of fabrics, patterns and colours to suit any style.

More space to enjoy

With a straight drop awning, you can create a comfortable outdoor living area that extends your home when space is at a premium. Plus, install an awning on the outside of your window to provide shade inside without taking up valuable room.

Energy-efficient cooling

Acting as a physical barrier, your straight drop awning can prevent considerable amounts of heat from entering your window or door. Plus, this style does not seal on all sides, allowing gentle air flow to keep your space fresh and breezy.

Fewer pests to swat

Don’t let mosquitoes, flies and other insects invade your outdoor space. Adding a straight drop awning prevents pests from entering your alfresco area. Simply lower the fabric to enjoy a relaxing evening without the fear of bug bites.

Automate your straight drop awning

For ultimate convenience, control your awning at the touch of a button. Our effortless Somfy motorisation systems can feature sun and wind sensors, automatically retracting the awning in harsh weather to prevent damage.

Just letting you know that we have had our venetians installed this morning. They look fantastic - thank you - a good suggestion and choice. Please pass on my comments to your manager with regards to the young man that installed them also. He was very efficient, friendly, polite and lovely to deal with - a real credit to your company.
