Options for Straight Drop Verandah Awnings

Spring Loaded Straight Drop Verandah Awning

The tube comes with a spring inside it and the blind easily retracts up when not in use.  When pulled down by hand it is usually attached to the decking area floor with a strap adaptor and single dog clips (see image). Can be made with or without a hood.

Crank Handle Operated Straight Drop Verandah Awning

This external blind is NOT spring loaded.  You need to wind it up and down with the crank and handle. Once in place you can easily remove the handle.  You only need one handle for several awnings. It gives you the ability to control the straight drop awning to where you want it to stop or how tight you want the fabric. Once the standard double dog clips (see image) are attached at the bottom you can tighten the fabric as you like. Can be made with or without a hood.

Rope and Reel operated Straight Drop Verandah Awning

The Rope and Reel (or sometimes called cord and reel) straight drop verandah awning is a traditional style external blind.  It is one of the more economical styles of awnings as it is operated by pulling the rope up to what ever height you like and tying it off on a cleatthat will be attached to a nearby post or window frame.  It is good if a window is a bit of a stretch to reach, but the rope can be long enough to reach. Can be made with or without a hood.
