A side channel awning is a straight drop awning with enclosed side channels to seal outdoor or open areas off from the elements. When open, the awning allows light and warmth through but when closed, the side channel awning creates a closed off, intimate space and provides protection from the wind, rain, heat and enhanced privacy.
Side channel awnings for your home or business.
Side channel awnings are a practical and attractive option for homes and businesses wanting to create a semi-enclosed outdoor space. The side channel awning is a traditional straight-drop awning with a sealed channel for the awning to slide up and down in. This channel allows the awning to move smoothly and also provides the best protection from rain, wind and heat of any straight-dropping awnings.Side channel awnings are particularly well suited to verandahs, balconies, alfresco areas and post-to-post installations. When raised, the awning either neatly rolls around a support or conceal into a neat cassette which can be manufactured in a variety of materials, finishes and colours. Your awning comes with a choice colours and fabrics, from translucent fabrics to let light in, to full block out and coloured fabrics to match your home’s design.

Options for your Side Channel Awning.
There are plenty of options to ensure you get the perfect awning for your needs.
- Deep Side Channel.
A deep side channel means the fabric is recessed farther into the channel which increases privacy, light and heat control.
- Powder Coated Side Channels and Headbox
You can powder coat your side channels and headbox in almost colour to perfectly suit your home. Our powder coated finish is durable to withstand the harsh Australian conditions.
- Base Locking Points
We have multiple options to secure your awning when fully dropped including a counter-weight or locking points.
- Variable Drop Locking Points.
We can fit your side channel awnings with variable locking points which allow you to secure your awning at multiple heights.
Controlling your Side Channel Awning
Our awnings can be controlled by remote, crank or springs; the choice is yours.
Remote controlled awnings rely on a motor to extend or retract your awning. You can set the precise point where you want to extend your awning to provide your guests with year-round comfort. Being motor driven, your awnings will always look great as the motor keeps the material taut.
We can hook your awning into an existing home automation system or help you with selecting a new system. Home automation gives you full control over your awnings at all times without any cranks, handles, pulleys or wires.
You can even program your awning to rise and fall at certain times of the day and depending on the conditions and the position of the sun.
You could also consider the easy-to-use, unobtrusive manual crank gears which come with a removable handle for security and safety or the spring-loaded option. Spring Loaded awnings are a clean, no-fuss solution which is perfect for any application.
