4 Benefits of folding arm awnings

Are you looking at installing an awning but worried that the harsh wind and sun will cause damage to it? Then you should consider a Folding Arm Awning from Aalta.

A folding arm awning is a flexible and stylish shade structure, because instead of using posts to hold it up, it neatly folds away against your home or building. This type of shade structure creates an adaptable outdoor space which seamlessly incorporates practicality and style.

Folding arm awnings are very popular in Sydney for this very reason. Aalta’s folding arm awnings are made from the highest quality components and acrylic outdoor fabrics which resist mould, dirt and fungus.

Being able to retract your awning allows you to bask in the sunlight on cold winter mornings or sit in the shade on hot summer afternoons, meaning you can use your space all year round.


Although many fixed shade structures can become damaged by the harsh Australian sun, wind and rain, a folding arm awning won’t be as it can be easily folded away during poor weather. The acrylic outdoor fabric used on the awnings won’t fade over time and they offer great protection from glare, heat and UV rays.


Aalta has made this structure the perfect solution for decks, courtyards and patio areas where you don’t want any poles or structures obstructing your view. They also come in various colours, frames and styles so you create your ideal space. We at Aalta also help with our recommendations as we are the awning experts.


Folding arm awnings can be used to cover windows and doors, protect your car space and outdoor area. With all year-round use, what could be more ideal?
