How wide can a Folding Arm awning go?

Projection is a maximum of 4000mm (4 metres) and a minimum of 1500mm (1.5m).

It is possible to butt two Folding Arm Awnings together to get wider coverage.

The longer the projection and the pitch, the more it may drop at the front.  When Premier Shades do an onsite measure and quote, we will look at fixing points and consult with you on the best solution.

Can I motorise a Folding Arm Awning?

Definitely.  Premier Shades are Gold Licensed Somfy Motorisation expert, based on the Central Coast. We specialise in the world leading Somfy motor system. This system can be automated via your smart phone and Wi-Fi devises. We can organise the Somfy Electrical Services to connect power to your folding arm awning (fees apply) which will extend your Somfy motor warranty from 5 to 7 years. Alternatively you can use your own electrician.

How does it go in the wind?

Premier Shades Folding Arm Awnings are predominately used for sun protection.  They are not designed for strong wind of greater than 50km an hour.  If you are concerned about the wind in your area, consider getting one of our Somfy sensors. A motion sensor will detect when the wind is too extreme and automatically retract a motorised folding arm awning away in its cradle.

How do I clean?

To clean a folding arm awning you need to remove sea salt, dust, bird droppings and ingrained dirt from the fabrics and components with a gentle hosing. Doing this every 3-6 month will extend the life of the look and product. Never use soap, bleach, solvents or cleaning fluids as they may damage the coating on the fabric. It's best to clean on a sunny day as it's important never to roll the fabric away wet.
