Awnings & Outdoor Blinds
Apollo Awnings or outdoor blinds add value to any home. They are an attractive, practical, and affordable way to extend your outdoor entertainment areas and shade your windows from the elements.
Apollo Awnings can also increase your home’s energy efficiency. In summer they prevent sun glare, and block the sun’s rays from your windows, helping your home to stay cooler and saving you money on power costs. Reducing the amount of sunlight that enters your home can also help prevent damage to furnishings and floor coverings.
In winter, Apollo Awnings help to cut your heating costs by reducing drafts and retaining warmth.
With five different styles, there is an awning to suit almost any application; Fixed, Folding Arm, Pivot Arm, Spring Operated and Straight Drop or Outdoor Roller Blinds.
They are available in an extensive range of designer colours and patterns, and long lasting, UV resistant materials too, such as traditional canvas, acrylics, breathable screen fabrics, PVC and even Colourbond steel.
Our superior quality components make operating Apollo Awnings a breeze. They can be controlled by a robust spring roller, manual crank, or in the case of our motorised awnings, at the touch of a button, tap of your smart device or voice activated with Google or Amazon. And for the ultimate in safety and convenience, we can install clever weather sensors that automatically move your awnings to follow the movement of the sun and retract them whenever strong winds are detected.
NATURAL MANUFACTURING CHARACTERISTICS: It is important to understand that there is a possibility of wrinkles & undulations in fabric awnings due to vertical joins, hems or side splines. Whilst we endeavour to eliminate visible uncertainties, these are characteristic to the rolling of fabric & will not deter from the performance nor the life of the product.
