This awning projects the fabric off the window, with the arms & fabric forming an arc that allows air to flow behind the awning.
This system is a heavy duty contemporary design ideal for larger windows that can be opened whilst the awning is projected. This heavy duty Pivot Arm provides excellent fabric tension, even with awning widths up to 5 Metres.
Designed to have the same curve as the Straight Drop bottom rail allowing flexibility to mix & match the awnings throughout your home maintaining a design consistency.
An optional sliding arm set facilitates changing the pivot point of the Awning by simply moving the arms up or down the sliding rails. This allows the awning to operate like a normal Pivot Arm in the down position, and in the raised position it allows head clearance over doorways providing a canopy effect.
Provides excellent fabric tension, even with awning widths up to 5 metres. The arms are a modern anodised finish complementing our standard Silver Pearl hardware.
