Folding Arm Awnings are a great way to stop direct sun entering your windows and heating your home. But they aren't just designed for windows. They can be used to create a new living area outside in the hot sun, extend the roof of an existing patio or create some extra shade for your swimming pool.

 

2. Patio Pleats

Patio Pleats aren't just the latest trend, they're also a great way to keep direct sunlight out on hot days and make your outside living areas useable on even the brightest sunny days. They look great and can even be motorised for easy operation.

 

3. Window Tints and Films

Window tints and films can block up to 80% of sunlight without losing your views. That makes your house cooler and will help prevent fading of carpet and other furnishings. You can even get extra privacy with deep tint and a reflective film, or get creative with decorative films.
