A convertible awning/ outdoor blind is suitable for windows that face any direction. When the awning is partially extended, it provides protection from overhead sun (i.e. north facing windows), whilst still retaining a view to the outside. When the awning is fully extended, it covers the entire window and provides protection from sun at low angles (i.e. facing east or west).
The lengths of the arms are approximately half the drop of the awning. This type of awning does not normally have a head-box, but one can be supplied if required.
The new version of convertible awning is the System 2000 Pivot Arm Awnings. They are especially ideal for cladding and fibro style houses applications, where fixing is not required at the very ends of the awning (two brackets) as it is with the standard Convertible awnings.
The awning is installed with a hood. The fixing points for the System 2000 Pivot Arm Awning can be anywhere along the awning cover (same applies for the bottom rail of the awning). It is a great solution that suits many older style houses on the Central Coast and Sydney areas, as well as being a contemporary awning for newer buildings. You can choose a rope operation that can be tied off externally down the wall to a cleat or winch operation. Another alternative is a tape operation for internal control, it can be tied off to an internal cleat, tape box or winch. Alternatively, Sonfy motorisation is available with switch operation or remote control.
