The side awning arose from the need to create privacy or for protection from the wind. It is a simple, yet effective solution. It is basically an awning with a head box and is operated by a spring anchored to a wall upright. There is a handle on the front which is used to handle it and anchor it to a pillar, which is part of the awning.
The entire frame is in extruded aluminium and drawn, thermo lacquered aluminium, and all the anchoring parts, such as nuts, bolts, washers and pins are in A4 stainless steel.
This awning normally comes with acrylic canvas – Dralon, with Scotchgard treatment, or with microperforated Solscreen or Tecnoscreen fabric.
