Drop Arm Awnings
Drop arm awnings are a stylish alternative sunblind for use over doorways, terraces, balconies and shop fronts.
The awnings can be manually operated or motorized so large areas can be covered easily.
Drop arm awnings are constructed with aluminium components so there is no rust to cause unsightly stains or other problems.
These awnings are suitable for both domestic or commercial applications.
When used for a shop, the awning can be sign-written for a classy finish to the shop façade.
Details of our suppliers are listed below. We only use suppliers who offer high quality products.

Manufacturers Of Drop Arm Awning
Below, we list some manufacturers whose awnings we have used very successfully in various applications.
Thanks to the heavy duty drop arms and roller tube, Robusta is a sturdy window awning especially suitable for large windows. A stylish aluminium hood protects the fabric and roller tube from the elements.
Integrating a full cassette headbox design, this full aluminium drop arm awning can span up to 5m width and a vertical drop of 3.6m. Motorised and crank operation models available.
The Aluxor Markisolette is ideal for long vertical spans of glazing such as high windows in commercial and retail settings. The Markisolette adds aesthetic appeal to contemporary architectural facades, while providing shade and glare relief. The arms work on a spring tensioned system pivoting up to a maximum of 90°. This allows for ventilation between the awning cover and allows for natural light to enter the room.

From my initial phone call to Sarah, Tony coming out to quote and discuss my needs, James the Electrician and Chris and Dallas installing my fabulous new blind, I can’t recommend this product and their helpful, knowledgeable staff highly enough. Nothing is too much trouble and a great price to top it off. I will definitely be using them again, don’t bother looking elsewhere.
Thank you Undercover Blinds – great work !
What to consider when buying outdoor blinds
We custom build and fit our outdoor blinds directly from our base of operations in Melbourne. Here are some answers to common questions from customers on our custom outdoor blind build and installations.
What role do you want your outdoor blind to fulfil?
With a variety of options, when it comes to outdoor blinds it is imperative to consider exactly what you’d like to achieve in your space. Are you wanting rain protection? Shade in the warmer months? A dry space over your door or a BBQ area? Perhaps you are looking for additional privacy in your outdoor space. Talking to Undercover Melbourne’s outdoor blinds experts is a good place to start. Discuss your outdoor blind project with our team and we’ll work with you to find the perfect outdoor blind to suit your needs and your outdoor space.
To ensure you select the blind that meets all of your needs, we need to consider the environment the outdoor blinds will find themselves in and the times of the year you are going to want to be maximising their use. Are you only planning on enjoying the beautiful summer weather or do you love being outdoors all year-round where a waterproof retractable roof system would suit your project better?
Ease of use
Do you envision yourself using this space over different times of the day or just once a day or a few times a week? Does the ease of being able to push a button to extend and retract the outdoor blinds appeal? Perhaps you would like to have the outdoor blind connected to your smart home system. Or perhaps you simply want to manually wind the blinds in and out as you see fit. We always say, if the blinds are easy to use, you will get more value (and more use) from them!
Type of fabric
When considering fabrics for your outdoor blind, it is best to delve back into some of your climate considerations to ensure you can use them as often you’d like. Are you looking for an acrylic semi-waterproof fabric to maximise your outdoor shade OR are you wanting a see-through mesh?
Once we have established the your basic requirements in terms of outdoor blind fabrics, we can turn our attention to the colour selection. After all, your blind’s functionality and ability to cope with your outdoor conditions is critical, but how it looks is something you’re going to have to live with and enjoy. And that’s where our outdoor blind experts can help. We’ve styled countless Melbourne homes with our outdoor blinds and we will ensure the blinds we supply are beautiful and enhance your property’s appeal.
Not only can your outdoor blinds enhance your outdoor living space, they can also save you energy by retaining heat in the winter (saving you on heating costs) and providing welcome shade in the hot summer months. Custom built to “Melbourne’s four seasons in a day climate,” Undercover’s outdoor blinds won’t simply look good, they’ll help you save energy too!
