User-friendly Versatile Awnings

Control the Light with Auto Guide Awnings

When it’s true versatility you’re looking for, Auto Guide Awnings are hard to beat. The awnings run on auto guides which are attached to the wall at a close distance. This close fitting means that the awnings will not obstruct access to any of the outdoor areas of your property.

One of the reasons Auto Guide Awnings are so popular is the amount of control they give you over the light entering your property.

The awnings can be raised and lowered into any position, even covering the whole window if you choose. This helps to keep your property cool, gets rid of glare, and also saves you money on the cost of air conditioning, making this a cost effective and practical solution.

Auto Guide Awnings for Complete Control

Outdoor Blinds that are easy to operate

Auto Guide Awnings are extremely easy to operate via the arms located on the guide rods. When you pull the awning straight down into your chosen position, the arms will lock as soon as you release the awning, holding it firmly in place until you choose to move it again. This provides you with an instant solution, whatever the Queensland weather decides to do at any time!

You can also have control over the amount of ventilation which can enter your room when the awnings are in operation. We offer three different projections for you to choose from:

150mm  • 300mm  • 450mm

The projection is how far the awning comes out from the wall. The larger the projection, the more ventilation will be able to circulate into your property.

Frequently Asked Questions About our Auto Guide Awnings Gold Coast

Can Retractable Awnings be used in the rain?

Retractable awnings definitely offer protection from the rain and inclement weather events. Nothing can ruin warm weather fun like a little rain and bad weather. If you purchase an awning from Scorpio Screens & Blinds, it will help keep your home cooler in summer and offer protection to you and your family from weather events.

Do you need planning permission to install an awning?

In most cases, residential awnings will not require planning permission, however, there are always exceptions. In these cases, where the council has a duty to preserve the original look of a home or area, extra planning permission may be required for a new awning. This may also apply to strata’s where permission may need to be sought from the Strata Committee as awnings will “modify the look of the common property.”

Do you charge for a measure and quote?

No. We offer a free measure and quote service to Gold Coast, Brisbane and Norther Rivers residents.
