Patio Awning

If what you are after is protection from the sun and wind, the Patio awning is the ideal product. With its sleek, contemporary and compact frame, the Patio Awning complements the modern outdoor area, giving you control over the effects of the sun and heat.

Designed in Europe and manufactured for Australian conditions, the Patio Awning is ideal for providing shade and reducing heat over glass roofs, underneath pergolas, on patios, verandahs or courtyards. The awning is designed to intercept the harsh rays of the sun before it hits glazing or areas below the frame, allowing you to enjoy your outdoor space with your family and friends for more months of the year.

The Patio awning is built of corrosion resistant materials, withstanding much of the harsh Australian climate. When retracted, the awning fabric is completely rolled up inside the head box, creating a neat, clean-lined structure over the area. If set over a glass roof, the awning is kept at a set distance from the glass allowing for good ventilation and heat dissipation.

The VZ520 Patio Awning extends along side tracks which are made from extruded aluminium and powder coated to suit the surrounding structure.

For a lighter-weight structure, Aalta has designed and developed the BT520 Patio Awning which runs along stainless steel cables.

The Zip Patio Awnings

Zip Patio Awning on posts

The Zip Patio Awnings are the latest group to join our Patio Awning family.

The awnings have a sleek and timeless design, with slimline guide rails and head box, making them suitable for all architectural styles, from classic to contemporary and on any terrace, patio, deck or commercial area.

Using a zipped track system, this Patio Awning provides protection from the sun, rain and wind, enabling you to create a beautiful outdoor area that can be enjoyed through all seasons. The ingenious zip system includes concealed, stainless steel springs within the guide rails, so that the fabric remains taut, making the awning extremely wind-resistant, up to 140km/h. As the fabric travels inside the guide rails, the awning is completely closed so there are no gaps between the fabric and the sides, avoiding the bright strips of sunlight on the exterior of the fabric for better climate control.

As with all our Patio Awnings, the Zip Patio Awning is motorised – with the push of a button you can control your outdoor environment. There are also sun, wind and rain sensors available to give you peace of mind when you are out.

The awning’s components, head box and guide rails are of the highest-grade powder coated aluminium. With the large range of RAL colours and textures available, you will find the perfect colour to complement your style. Insert image zip patio awning post and guide rails
