Drop arm awnings

Drop arm and Sliding arm awnings are ideal where there is not enough room above your window for a folding arm awning, for high level windows, small windows or windows that require a much deeper area of shading than a folding arm awning or canopy is unable to provide.

Drop arm and sliding arm awnings are particularly suited for commercial situations where sign writing is important due to the awning pitch being greater than other awnings and therefore making more of the cover visible – ideal for branding.

The Marla Custom Blinds awnings use fabric ranges from Dickson and Sunbrella. These 2 ranges contain over 400 designs including solid colours, stripes and jacquards, many of which have special treatments to prevent fading, staining, dirt build up, mould and to make them water resistant.

All information collected with this form will be handled in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

Drop arm awnings have either spring assisted or gas operated arms which keep the fabric taught at all points of extension. One end of the arm is attached to the front profile whilst the other end is attached to a pivot point fixed to the wall. If a long projection or clearance is required beneath the arms (for people to be able to walk under) then a sliding arm is required where the pivot point moves up a slide as the awning drops.

Operation – Operation of a drop arm awning can be either manual operation with a detachable winding handle which is attached to a gearbox fitted at one end of the awning roller tube or by electric operation using a hand held remote or wall switch.

Signwriting – To personalise or promote your business, all folding arm awning covers and valances can be sign written with your telephone number, personalised wording or printed with your own logo using your bespoke artwork.
