Folding arm awnings

Folding arm awnings are the most popular sunscreen solution for creating shaded areas in every situation and time of day. These awnings are ideal for residential and commercial settings, with customized options utilizing all types of fabrics: from acrylic to polyester.
There are various types, depending on the size of area to screen, from small, medium to large areas.
They can be equipped with a cassette with cap cover brush built inside, which protects the mechanical components and fabric and ensures a longer life span.
Thanks to the millimeter adjustment system, the inclination of the curtain can be chosen during installation, in order to offer a greater shaded area with improved visual comfort.



Medium to small folding arm awnings can be attached to independent side plates. While larger awnings can be fixed on a square bar, offering more support on any type of wall.
The folding arms can be extended partially or fully, providing maximum coverage. The awnings can be opened either manually by gear and spring or automatically with motorized system.

Applications of folding arm awnings 

Folding arm awnings can be installed on any type of wall or ceiling to provide maximum protection from the sun. They are widely used for residential buildings such as apartments or villas.

The fabric

You can choose from a wide range of acrylic or resin fabrics, depending on your needs and preferences. Teflon treatment provides water and oil resistance, making fabrics rot-proof, immune to mold growth and resistant to grease. The fabrics are also resistant to fading traditionally caused by sunlight.
Each fabric is evaluated according to UNI EN 13561 to define the performance requirements of awning fabrics and their safety. The awning aims to increase environmental comfort and improve visual comfort while contributing to an increasing focus on energy conservation.


The protection offered by these awnings, is mainly frontal and only partially lateral, depending on the chosen angle. They fit every architectural style, from the most classical to the modern ones.
They can strongly characterize the building on which they are mounted, thanks to the wide choice of fabrics available.
Folding arm awnings are totally made to measure, in various designs.
