Long life and reliable awnings
Pivot Arm Awnings operate with a pivoting arm that extends and retracts in an arc shape. This allows for control of the direct sun through the angle or pitch of the awning. Suitable for both windows and doors, pivot arm awnings are spring-loaded to hold fabric taut. A heavier duty system than other awning options, making it a fantastic option for larger windows.
