External Window Furnishing And Awnings
Shade and Light
Unlike Privacy Screens, the blades of the Window Shades are angled rather than flat horizontal and are designed for that strong western sun. These Window Shades can sit either flush against the window or offset from the window where it will be supported by the offset brackets. The systems are available in any colour. There is also a choice of 75mm x 16mm blade or 85mm elliptical blade.
Tough and Transparent
Available in Bullnose or flat translucent panels. A Carb-O-Lite window awning system allows the awnings to be set at any angle. The rear receiving channel is affixed and the awning simply clicks in and fastened. You can set the awning to any pitch to suit your needs. The awnings come in projections of up to 1600mm and are available in a variety of colour choices where you can mix and match. There are five (5) sheet choices of 8mm twin walled polycarbonate and four (4) aluminium joining bar colours. However, for an extra charge, we are able to powder coat to any special colour.
The Classy Sleek Sun Barrior
Conservatory Awnings were originally designed in Europe for glass conservatories. As well as glass conservatories they are also commonly used for a shade over pergolas and can also be fitted with posts. Suitable for both commercial and residential projects, they can be used in a wide variety of applications for protection from the sun. Their system runs on tracks and the fabric retracts onto a roller tube into a cassette. The powder-coated aluminium cassette protects the fabric when it is retracted.
DROP ARM AWNINGS

Drop Arm Awning combines a high quality of finish with modern styling and suitable assembly on any standard type of conservatory, pergola or outdoor construction. It is built entirely of corrosion-resistant materials, making it very versatile and therefore ideal for a number of areas including windows, verandas and balconies.
