STRAIGHT DROP AWNINGS
Spring Operated Straight Drop
The Straight Drop Awning is spring operated. This Awning is designed for short drops usually securing to handrails, which are ideal for balconies.
The Awning has no stops and must be fully up or locked down with dog clips.
To operate this blind pull down by hand or for higher installed blinds use the pull down pole.
The top roller has a spring so that as you pull the blind down the blind is tension.
This blind is designed to be pulled down to a hand rail, where the bottom rail can be attached to snap hooks.
Fabrics available Screen / mesh, acrylic and canvas.
Fixed Guide Awnings
Fixed Guide Awnings are an extremely effective and low cost option, ideal for high or out of reach windows, that are not easily accessible.
Fixed Guide Awnings do not have locking arms like other models but rather a circular guide on the bottom bar which runs up two metal rods on either side, giving the awning the flexibility of stopping at any point without having to secure the base rail.
Easily operated internally or externally by cord and pulley, motor or crank, for those installed on the ground level.
Rope and Pulley Straight Drop Awning
The Rope and Pulley Straight Drop Awning is a simple type of external blind, retracted by a rope and pulley and extended by gravity.
This awning has no arms and when fully extended it is held down by straps to prevent it flapping in the wind.
When the rope is pulled to retract the awning, the fabric rolls around a tube at the base of the blind. Ideally suited for traditional verandahs, or the edge of a pergola where the top fixing position slopes from one side to the other.
Ideally used to protect against the sun or as a privacy screen.

Q: Which straight drop awning type is right for me?
We offer three main types of straight drop awnings: spring-operated, fixed guide, and rope and pulley. Choosing the right one depends on several factors, including:
Accessibility: Consider how easily you can reach the awning for operation. Fixed Guide awnings are ideal for high or out-of-reach windows.
Budget: Spring-operated awnings are generally the most affordable option, while fixed guide, rope, and pulley awnings may require additional installation costs.
Functionality: Think about how you will use the awning. Spring-operated, rope, and pulley awnings offer full extension/retraction, while fixed guide awnings can be stopped at any point.
Q: How do I operate my straight drop awning?
The operation method depends on the type of awning you choose:
Spring Operated: Pull down manually or with a pole, then lock down with dog clips.
Fixed Guide: Use cord, pulley, motor, or crank (ground level only).
Rope and Pulley: Pull the cord to retract; gravity extends the awning.
