With such a big population and many blinds to choose from, why are folding arm awnings so popular? Melbourne is the capital city of Victoria in Australia, with a population of around 6.6 million people. Let’s take a look at why folding arm awnings are so loved.

  1. Retractable. Folding arm awnings can be wound in and out of a cassette. This enables them to be stowed when not in use, or extended to the desired length or angle to maximise the area and effect. Being away when not in use means the area looks presentable at all times. 

  2. Durable. Durability is found in the materials from which folding arm awnings are made. The fabric is made of moisture, dust, mould and weather-resistant materials. Furthermore, being able to be housed in a cassette when not in use further preserves the integrity of the awnings. 

  3. Easy To Use. Awnings can either be automatically extended and retracted through the use of remote controls or switches. They can also be manually operated using a crank. This means they can be operated by the young, old, or those with physical limitations without any difficulty.

  4. Weather Protection. Awnings provide additional protection from the weather for both windows and patio areas. This means they can be used when the weather is harsh, or simply provide additional shelter. For example, awnings protect from the heat by preventing windows from absorbing too much heat. 

Folding arm awnings are increasingly more popular for many reasons. These include their retractability, durability, ease of use, and the weather protection they provide.
