Open Awnings and Cassette Awnings

There are a number of different types of case designs to choose from, the two most popular designs are open awnings and cassette awnings.

Open Awnings

Open awnings are the most cost-effective option and are ideal for buildings that have an overhanging roof or for small awkward areas as the casing is very slimlined. The open case design means that some fabric is still exposed, even when closed. However, if you plan to use your awning frequently, and will only be closing it during inclement weather, and at night then the open awning should offer sufficient cover for your needs. If you plan to use your awning frequently then an open awning is the choice for you.

The Darwin is an open awning that can span a maximum width of 7m and a maximum projection of 4m.

Cassette Awnings

Cassette awnings are slightly more costly that open awnings, however the roller, fabric and arms are completely hidden when retracted within a closed cassette case, keeping the structure protected from the weather. They are therefore ideal for those that will not be using the awning regularly as it would receive full protection from the weather when closed.

The Parkhurst is a cassette awning that has a stylish cassette casing; its fabric is available in over 200 colours to allow it to blend in with your building front. This awning can also span a maximum width of 7m and a maximum projection of 4m.
