Pivot Arm Awning

A motorised retractable drop arm awning that protects doors, windows, and balconies.

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.


Intelligent features – stops at any intermediate point depending on angle of sun.

Protects internal spaces from heat, glare, and harmful UV rays
Flexible design to suit windows, doors and balconies
Taut fabric offers high wind resistance
