Pivot Arm

A motorised retractable drop arm awning that protects doors, windows, and balconies.
On-demand shade that protects spaces outside – and in.
Highly performance sun protection for internal spaces.

Manufactured in Perth specifically for the WA climate, the Soltex Pivot Arm Awning is extremely strong and versatile, making it ideal for areas prone to high winds. A fantastic compromise between traditional horizontal folding arm awnings and straight drop blinds, our Pivot Arm Awning is clever in design and innovation – shielding the sun’s various angles throughout the day due to tensioned spring-loaded arms that allow for a maximum angle of 115 degrees.
