Multi Stop Channel Awnings
Multi Stop channel awnings have become extremely popular among designers, builders and homeowners alike because of their versatility and ability to control precisely how much protection your awning provides and how much sun or wind it lets in. Through ingenious design and precision construction, our multi stop awnings are some of the most effective and versatile options on the market.
How do they work?
Multi Stop channel awnings consist of a spring-loaded, top-mounted blind or awning that runs along side channels, anchored to these channels by the bottom rail. Along the channels, there are a nearly infinite number of stop points. Our exclusive design allows you to drop the awning to any desired height to fit the conditions or your preference.
What are they good for?
This design proves to be extremely useful in a number of situations. One extremely common one is when you wish to block out direct sunlight. As the sun gets to certain points of its trajectory during the day, its light may end up shining directly in your and your guest’s eyes while relaxing on the verandah. While you certainly would like protection from this, you don’t want to lose the indirect sunlight – that's the whole reason for sitting outside in the first place! The multi stop channel design allows you to lower your awning just enough to get the best of both worlds.
Multi stop channel awnings are similarly useful when being used to protect you from cold or windy situations. As completely enclosing a verandah with permanent structures limits airflow in the hottest months, awnings and blinds are preferable to many of us. For the most part, they provide sufficient protection when the temperature dips a bit as well. However, during particularly windy weather, fully closed awnings can be noisy or even damaged due to the effect of the wind on their entire surface area. Multi stop awnings allow you to lower them enough to provide sufficient protection while minimising unwanted noise and protecting the integrity of the awning itself.
Multi stop channel awnings also are unique in that they can be used as an attractive and eye-catching aesthetic complement to your home’s design. Most likely you will have chosen an awning or blind colour that is either neutral or matches the colour palette of your house. Either of these can easily become an inexpensive trim. When opening your multi stop blinds, you can simply lock them in a position just before fully retracted, where a strip of them can be seen. Adding shape, texture, and colour, your multi stop awning has now added an attractive accent to your home with no extra expenditure!
Multi stop channel awnings not only protect you from the elements, but also save energy and prevent your furniture, floors, and carpets from fading. They can be mounted between posts or on the face of a window, depending on your needs. They can also easily be motorised. To increase their versatility and the range of uses, we offer our multi stop awnings in a number of fabric types. Opaque sunblock/blackout awnings and blinds provide complete privacy and protection from sunlight when closed. Meanwhile, light filtration and semi-shade fabrics exhibit translucent properties – providing differing levels of protection while preserving your view. Our multi channel awnings come in maximum sizes of 2700 mm in both width and length.
