Pivot Arm Awnings Brisbane

Pivot arm awnings are the most suitable awning for outward opening windows and second-floor installations, with internal control available to maintaining complete control over your light levels and privacy. Pivot arm awnings project the fabric away from the window, minimising heat build-up in the fabric by allowing the circulation of air behind the awning.  They’re also ultra-stylish and versatile – a favourite for contemporary design including the oh-so-chic Hamptons look.   Pivot arm awnings are the classic awning option and ideally suited to Brisbane’s harsh summer sun.

A contemporary design ideal for larger windows and decrease the direct sun rays coming into a window opening. This awning is cost effective, with superior airflow keeping you comfortable and saving you money on cooling by keeping heat out of your home. By pivoting in an arc, these awnings can cover your entire window, when the weather cools down you can pull them all the way back to make the most of the heat and sun again.

Cord and Reel Pivot Arm Awnings

Cord and reel pivot arm awnings are fixed within a weather box or brackets and can be operated by heavy-duty rope being pulled around a steel reel to roll up and down. Straps are attached to the bottom and eyelets are fixed into the ground to stop the blind swinging around. A cleat is then positioned on one side to tie off the awning. A UV treated swivel roller is fixed to your wall and a white tape lock or winch is fixed to the inside of your wall for easy operation. Pivot arms are made from aluminum and are powder coated to suit your house decor. Projection of the arms can be up to 1250mm. A wavy or straight valance is included as standard.

Optional Additions

The optional colour coordinated head box provides complete protection for your awning fabric when the awning is not in use. Made from rolled steel the weather boxes are available in a range of Colourbond® colours.

This awning is suited to second-floor windows where operation of the awning can be driven from inside your home with an optional internal tape winch.
