    Frequently asked questions.

    Great news! You do not require council approval for a Folding Arm Awning, saving you time and additional cost.

    Semi-Cassette awnings, also known as back bar awnings, allow for multiple fixing points and is the preferred option when mounting to rafter backets or in front of a gutter. The back bar also gives the awning more strength and can generally cover larger areas. Full-Cassette awnings offer complete protection of the fabric when retracted into the headbox but are only suitable in flat mounting situations, such as a brick wall or beam. Your Soltex representative can assist you with awning selection for your unique area.

    Yes. By using custom made rafter brackets with a plate that extends up in front of your gutter, we can mount to your eave using the roof rafters for cantilevered support.

    If a Folding Arm Awning is installed at angle of 15 degree or more then yes – it can be used for light shower protection. Keep in mind though that it may be hard to achieve a 15-degree angle in most situations and that strong winds are often associated with rain. A Folding Arm Awning is designed to be more of a shade solution.
