The Drop-Arm Awning is another timeless winner. Think of this Awning as a more modern and slimline aluminium version of the Traditional Shop Blind. When you find yourself limited for fixing position options, end-fix only brackets support the same 70mm roller tube used in the Arezzo Foldaway Awning, allowing a good range of widths available, and the Drop Arm also uses the same slim but robust front profile, however the fixed projecting arms are hinged to the wall at the base of the vertical plane, and any amount of these can be used to support the width of the front rail. Because the arm fixing point is significantly lower therefore than the roller fixing height, this means that the awning is triangulated against the wall, or shopfront, thus offering it a greater degree of stability when it comes to wind loading. Where a greater degree of sun-protection is required, therefore demanding a larger projection, but with a limited roller fixing height, then we have the slide-arm option available, similar to the Traditional Shop Blind, with a very rigid manual aluminium slide channel providing an adjustable headway clearance below the arm. Gear operation only is recommended for the slide-arm option, using a detachable winding handle, giving another advantage of being able to easily wind the awning down below the horizontal position, both with the slide-arm and the drop-arm, and thus offering an even greater and more flexible degree of sun-protection. For sheer versatility, the Drop-Arm Awning is practical, simple, and most attractive.
Drop Arm Awnings provide excellent sun protection here to these first floor windows because the more you wind the awnings out, the lower they drop, making it possible to completely cover the windows if required.
Tower block apartments are extremely common throughout all Italian cities, and most have balconies that suffer from the extreme heat, a problem rectified easily with a simple Drop Arm Awning.
