Efficient Shading for Your Home, Garden, or Patio

Our drop arm awning stands out as a cost-effective method to provide shading and screening, whether it’s for your home, garden, or patio. Designed with functionality and durability in mind, this retractable sunblind boasts a sturdy yet lightweight system, perfect for everyday use.

Customisable Features for Tailored Comfort

With our drop arm awning, you’re in control. The fully adjustable pitch settings ensure optimal sun protection all year round, adapting seamlessly to your preferences. Choose between a scalloped or straight valance to match your aesthetic vision effortlessly.

Robust Construction for Lasting Performance

Crafted with quality materials, our awning guarantees reliability. The framework is powder-coated in standard RAL colour White (9010) for a sleek finish that withstands the elements. Plus, the slim, flush cassette design protects the fabric and components from harsh weather conditions when retracted.

Convenient Operation Options

Whether you prefer manual control or automated convenience, we’ve got you covered. Our awning systems are available with both manual operation and automated functionality, complete with a motor and radio-controlled handset for effortless adjustment.

Tailored to Your Specifications

At Canvasman, we understand the importance of personalisation. That’s why we offer a wide range of fabric options, along with the ability to add signage for a custom touch. Additionally, our expert team provides full survey, manufacture, and installation services, ensuring a seamless experience from start to finish.

Reliable Performance Guaranteed

While our drop arm awning excels in providing shade and comfort, it’s essential to note its limitations. For safety reasons, we advise against exposing the awning to snow loading or strong winds, as we cannot guarantee wind damage under such circumstances.

Experience Unmatched Quality

With Canvasman, you’re investing in quality craftsmanship and superior service. Our awnings come with a 5-year guarantee and are proudly made in Yorkshire. Plus, we keep your unique design on file, making replacements hassle-free in the future.
