Premium Outdoor Shading Solutions

Straight Drop Awnings

Flexible Shading Solution

Straight Drop / Veranda / Alfresco Awnings

Straight drop awnings are a type of outdoor shading solution that provides a stylish and practical way to protect against the elements. They consist of a frame mounted on the wall, which supports a fabric or canvas cover that can be adjusted to control the amount of sunlight and rain that enters the space.

Protection from the sun: Alfresco awnings offer a convenient and effective way to block the sun’s harmful UV rays, which can cause skin damage and overheat.

Rain protection: The fabric cover on straight drop awnings is designed to be waterproof, so it provides adequate protection against rain and other precipitation.

Increased privacy: By adjusting the angle and height of the awning, it is possible to control the amount of visibility into the space. This makes straight-drop awnings an excellent option for increasing privacy in outdoor living areas.

Style and versatility: A wide range of fabrics and colours are available for alfresco awnings, so it is easy to find a style that matches the home’s aesthetic. They are also highly versatile, as they can be mounted on the wall or ceiling and extended or retracted as needed.

Another key benefit of external blinds is their ease of use. Many models come with remote controls, making it simple to adjust the amount of light and airflow as required.

In terms of style, external blinds can also add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any outdoor area.

The SDA-SC800-Zip

A tracked blind with a Zip System, the SDA-SC800 Straight Drop Awning ensures the cloth is appropriately tensioned no matter where it is halted along the tracks.

In addition, the roller tube and motor are shielded by an enclosed hood, which encloses the cloth when it is retracted. The side guide rails on the fabric are kept in place by the tracking system.

This awning is perfect if complete blockout is what you’re after.
The zipper covers the fabric’s sides so no light can get through them.

This system is excellent for your patio, deck, veranda, or pergola because it also protects against wind and rain coming in at an angle. All parts are manufactured of extruded aluminium, and our pricing includes any Dulux Durralloy Range powder coat colour.
