What are the Different Types of Outdoor Awnings in QLD?

Awnings overhang from buildings and roofs to offer shade and weather protection from the elements. They can take the form of louvre awnings, canopies or retractable shades. Awnings from Frank’s Home Décor Centre can offer sun and weather protection for your indoor furnishings. They may save you as much as 25% off your Queensland energy bills by reducing your heating and cooling costs. In this post, we list the different types of outdoor awnings available on the Australian market.

Awnings of Different Materials

Awnings can be made from various materials. Frank’s Home Décor Centre specialises in waterproof canvas, aluminium and fabric awnings. Our natural canvas and fabric awnings are tough and offer excellent sun protection, providing large areas of shade and effective water-resistance.

For locations that experience excessive wetness, we suggest waterproof canvas or aluminium awnings. Aluminium awnings are a great solution for locations that experience a lot of wind and rain, including coastal areas. Our treated powder coated aluminium awnings are:

  • Corrosion and rust resistant
  • Low maintenance
  • Long lasting

Folding Arm Awning System

folding arm awning is an adjustable system that retracts back into the wall when not in use. It uses extendable arms to offer the maximum projection. It can be adjusted automatically with a motorised push button control, or a cost-effective manual crank. The pitch is also adjustable. When fully projected, folding arm awnings offer great protection against the elements.

Canopy Awnings

Canopy awnings are often used for commercial premises and are made from rigid steel panels with powder coated components. They are ideal for buildings that don’t have an overhanging roof and can offer your premises shade and insulation against the hot Queensland sun. Metal canopy awnings are low maintenance, cost-effective and durable.

Louvre Awnings

Light and durable louvre awnings drop down from your roof to provide shade, privacy and weather protection. Your louvre awnings can be fixed, or adjustable with angled blades to filter the sun and control the air flow. The adjustable variety can be operated interally with winder controls.

Zipscreen Awnings

Zipscreen awnings can retract up and down along fitted aluminium tracks. They are a great solution to retain views from your large windows when they are fitted with screen mesh fabrics. Zipscreen awnings can protect against the sun and can be optimised with optional extras such as automation, sun and wind sensors and a remote controller.
