Fixed Guide 02How Fixed Guide Awnings Operate

These awnings are similar to the Automatic Awnings, they work with the same basic principle that a top roller is used to roll up the material.

“Arms” are not used to automatically lock the material in place.  Instead the guides are placed through a set of Runners to run freely up & down, and from there various combination of components are used depending on the control method selected.

Control methods available:

  • If the blind is fixed from first floor onwards, rope is supplied that lead down to ground level or through the window frame with centre pulley. Optional winch operation or internal crank operation with crank handle.
  • Motorisation option available provides the best convenience.
