Residential Retractable Awnings

If you want to extend your outdoor living areas or enjoy them all year round, regardless of the weather, our wide range of Retractable Awnings puts you in total control of the weather at the touch of a button. 

Motorisation and automation is available on most of our residential blinds and awnings, with some even having the option of wind, rain and sun sensors. They can be instantly and even remotely extended or retracted in response to rain, wind and sun or your entertainment preferences. 

Being able to retract these awnings when not in use or during bad weather makes them more durable than other types of awnings, as they are not as exposed to fading or damage from the sun, wind and rain. 

Folding Arm Awnings

Folding Arm Awnings are flexible and stylish shade structures that neatly fold away against your home when not in use, allowing you to bring the sunshine into your home in winter, shade your home in summer and remove glare at any time of the day so you can relax in comfort all year round.

With no poles or structures obstructing your view, folding arm awnings are a stylish shade solution that can be used to protect outdoor entertainment areas as well as windows and doors. They are available in many different colours, frames, fabrics and styles to add style and impact to your home. 

Classic, cost effective, versatile Aluxor Stratos I and III Awnings

These high-quality folding arm awnings are wind rated to Category 5 (38kmh), letting you maximise your outdoor areas by providing excellent UV protection without obstructing your view. 
 
The Aluxor Stratos I is designed to be installed in a protected place, such as under roof eaves because the awning mechanism and fabric bundle are not enclosed within an aluminium cassette. The Aluxor Stratos III Folding Arm Awning has a semi-enclosed extruded aluminium cassette to provide additional protection against dirt and corrosion.

Both the  Aluxor Stratos I and Stratos III can be fitted as a top fix or wall fixed installation, operated either manually or electronically, as well as integrated with sun and wind sensors. 

The optional angle-adjusting Selectapitch feature on the Stratos I allows you to easily & quickly move your awning to block the low afternoon sun or even use it as a rain shelter in calm conditions. 

Additional options include:

  • Oversquare feature enabling the projection to be greater than the width
  • Vario Volant vertical screen for low level sun and privacy protection.
  • Removable poles for even more stability.
