By using only high quality components from world renowned suppliers we ensure that your exterior folding arm awning is solid and durable.

Arm components are made from pressure die-casted corrosion resistant aluminium.
Arm profiles are manufactured from extruded corrosion resistant aluminium.
Heavy-duty springs ensure the optimal fabric tension at all times – water runs off it when it rains.
If you need your components in particular colours, you can always opt for custom powder coating by Dulux® Powder & Industrial Coatings.

Tailored to your tastes and needs, available in an extensive range of over 130 fantastic colours and textures, our awnings will delight you with their excellent performance.

Here, at SunGuard, we use only the best fabric for our awnings – Docril.

Docril Fabrics is a Spanish company with a long textile tradition that started back in 1875. All Docril sun protection fabrics are produced in Barcelona (Spain).

Docril fabrics reduce solar heat gain by up to 90%, naturally creating a cool and comfortable environment. 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.

No vertical supports give you total freedom of operation. Arrange your outdoor furnishings as much as you like! What’s more, you can always adjust the pitch to make your shade just perfect.

Automated operation

We use premium European motors. Our awnings can extend or retract with a push of a button. Choose a remote or a wall switch. Awning controls can be integrated into home automation systems.

An optional sun/wind sensor

Improve your experience even more with our sun and wind sensors that will automatically close the awning when the wind reaches the programmed safety level or can extend when the sun comes out.


Awnings can be both wall and soffit mounted with a bracket footprint of 250 mm. We can craft brackets of a particular size and shape, so that an awning can be easily installed in any challenging location.
