Travel through Europe or the United States and you’ll find Folding Arm Awnings on many shops, bars and homes. This highly flexible lifestyle awning provides shade for outdoor spaces, without requiring any fixed structures.
Shade your windows, patios and outdoor living areas with our simple and neat German designed Folding Arm Awnings. Australians love relaxing outside, so no posts, struts or poles means more outdoor entertaining space. Our innovative design allows the awning to retract into a discrete and unobtrusive position against the building or structure.
Assembled in our Newton factory, but sourced from Germany, the Aluxor awning is considered one of the best awning systems in the world – with strong arm springs, extruded brackets and a high quality paint finish. Combined with Somfy remote motorisation and motion sensors, the Folding Arm can be a simple and quick way to provide shade.
