During extreme weather, the awnings can be easily retracted to protect them from debris, heavy rain, harsh winds and intense storms.
We offer warranties on our materials and installation, so you can rest assured your straight drop awnings will go the distance.

Both options can be smoothly and comfortably rolled down and retracted manually. We recommend straight drop awnings as a hassle-free exterior solution for their functionality, stylish appearance and ease of use.
Our durable fabrics keep the sun off your patios, decks and other outdoor living areas, which makes them perfect for hot Australian summers. They’re also great for keeping excess dirt, dust and debris from reaching your outdoor settings.
Straight drop awnings are a fantastic year-round weather solution, as they reduce the amount of cold wind that makes it into your home during chillier months. Simply extend your roller during cold winter days and our awnings will act as a protective barrier, limiting the amount of wind that makes it into your home.

Our straight drop awnings are made with durable, high-quality mesh that can stand up against everyday weather. However, as a general rule, all awnings should be retracted and rolled up during extreme weather conditions such as storms, heavy rain and strong winds.
Your straight drop awnings won’t be damaged if they get wet. However, it’s always a good idea to keep them retracted when it starts to rain in case conditions get worse.
If your awnings are wet, the best way to dry them is by extending them once the weather clears and letting them air dry. You can also dry them manually with a soft sponge or clean cloth. Retracting your wet awnings while damp will make them stay wet for longer.

Awnings have been used in homes for centuries, with the earliest recorded awnings used in Ancient Egypt. Canvas awnings became more common in the 18th century and were made with timber frames, which were eventually upgraded to metal piping during the industrial era.
The early 20th century saw the invention of retractable awnings in America and they soon became used worldwide. Awnings were quickly adopted in Australia because of our national passion for outdoor dining. An awning provides the perfect solution for reducing wind and dust when cooking outdoors — one of the best features for Australian homes today.
