We use only high quality components from world renowned suppliers to make your outdoor folding arm awnings sturdy and durable. Arm components and profiles are manufactured from solid corrosion resistant aluminium. Heavy-duty springs ensure the optimal fabric tension at all times to ensure efficient water drainage when it rains.
Awning hardware is available in three standard colours: Warm White Pearl, Silver Pearl and Matt Charcoal. If you wish to have your awning components in other colours, you can order Dulux® custom powder coating. We can do any colour you like for an additional cost.
Here, at SunGuard, we offer a fantastic range of colours and textures, both plains and stripes for your Auckland awnings. Our awning fabrics collection includes 25 colours of Shadeview Mesh and stunning 132 colours of Docril Acrylic Canvas.
Docril awning fabrics naturally create a cool and comfortable environment by reducing solar heat gain by up to 90%. These fabrics have been tested for harmful substances or chemicals and certified by a global system Oeko-TexR Standard 100. Dupont Teflon coating makes Docril exceptionally resistant to water, high temperatures, chemical reaction, corrosion and stress-cracking.
Retractable awnings mean that you can move them in and out. There are two main ways of operation: manual (crank operated) and automated (motorised).
With these classic awnings you simply need to rotate the handle to open and close the cover. Manual operation is not reliant on electricity, which is great for deck and patio awnings that aren’t anywhere close to an electricity supply.
Turn the crank handle to retract or wind out your awnings. Make sure you keep the handle on the same angle as the gearbox position.
When extending the awning try and reach the best position. To do so, you may need to wind the handle forwards and backwards. Check whether the folding arms are in place and the awning canvas is stretched taut nicely.
When retracting your outdoor awning ensure that you do not jam the fall bar against the roller as this can indent the fabric. The fabric must always roll off the top of the roller tube.
An electric awning is more desired by most New Zealanders as it makes operating absolutely effortless. Our exterior awnings can extend or retract with a push of a button. We safely install a premium European motor inside the awning tube and then connect it to your electricity supply. Our automated folding arm awnings can be operated via a wall switch or remote control handset.
Motorised retractable awnings are easy to use, as we carefully set inner and outer limits during installation. Simply push the button (up/down) to extend or retract your awning. If you wish to stop your folding arm awning in some position, push the central button on the remote or a wall switch.
Our motors have a 3-4 minute run time, after this time they can stop operation so that the motor won’t be damaged by a thermal overload. Don’t worry if this happens, just let the motor cool down for about 10 minutes in summer or less in winter. Things will return to normal.
Please note that remotes use batteries, which you will have to change occasionally.
Improve your experience even more with our sun and wind sensors for folding arm awnings. They will automatically close the awning when the wind reaches the programmed safety level or can extend when the sun comes out. By doing so, they will prevent your deck or patio awnings from getting damaged. Weather sensors can run on batteries, be solar powered, or simply wired into your electricity supply.
Awnings can be both wall and soffit mounted with a bracket footprint of 170-250 mm. We can craft brackets of a particular size and shape, so that an awning can be easily installed in any challenging location.
If you order retractable awnings from SunGuard, installation cost is already included in the price.
Retract your outdoor awnings in periods of extreme weather: high winds and heavy rain. If the awning pitch is less than 15°, you risk collecting water in the fabric which can easily damage your awning.
Do not roll your awning away when the fabric is wet.
Do not attempt to adjust or remove any awning component, as you may get injured or simply cause the product malfunction.
The awning canvas requires seams along the width, so a slight wavy effect or small wrinkles are completely normal.
Do not use BBQs or any other cooking or heating equipment under your patio or deck awning, as this can damage the fabric and cause mould/mildew.
Do not spray water at the motor head of an automated awning.
Check all fasteners annually.
Clean your awning components every 6 months. If your awning is installed at the beach front, geothermal or industrial areas, you need to clean the hardware more often, every 1-3 months, depending on pollution.
Carefully remove any loose surface deposits from the components with a wet sponge.
Use a soft brush (non abrasive ) and a mild household detergent (do not use solvents) in warm water, remove dust, salt and other deposits.
Rinse off with clean fresh water.
Clean your fabric with a soft-bristled brush and rinse with water.
If there are any stains, clean them with a neutral detergent mixed in lukewarm water and rinse.
Always allow fabric to dry completely before rolling it.
We provide a five-year limited warranty on all hardware components of the system. Our fabrics come with 10 year manufacturer’s warranty.
Please note that this warranty will be void if the damage was caused by vandalism, extreme weather conditions, water ingress to the motor caused by insufficient flashing, incorrect operation or improper cleaning.

We recently moved into a new home and being winter, found the heat was escaping through the large bifold doors. We had a double roller blind put in for sun protection in summer and the thermal front for winter. Alex from SunGuard was great to communicate with and the quoting and installation process was very easy. We’d happily use SunGuard again.
My cousin ordered blinds from SunGuard before and when I was looking for a company to get new blinds for my kitchen I called these guys. I had thermal rollers installed. Reasonable price and great choice.
