Awnings for the Greater Gympie Region

Awnings are to provide shade, protection from the elements, and enhance the aesthetic appeal of your property. Typically installed over windows, doors, patios, decks, or outdoor spaces, and they come in various styles, shapes, and sizes.

Options include 95%, 99%, 100% Blockout Mesh

Awnings serve several purposes:

  1. Sun Protection: Awnings are commonly used to block sunlight and reduce heat gain inside a building. They provide shade, helping to keep indoor spaces cooler and more comfortable, which can also lead to energy savings by reducing the need for air conditioning.
  2. Rain Protection: Awnings can shield windows, doors, and outdoor areas from rain, preventing water from entering the building or soaking outdoor furniture.
  3. Enhanced Outdoor Living: They create additional usable outdoor spaces by providing shelter from the sun and rain. This makes them popular choices for creating outdoor seating areas, dining spaces, or recreational spots.
  4. Aesthetic Appeal: Awnings come in various colors, patterns, and designs, allowing property owners to customize the appearance of their building and outdoor spaces.
  5. UV Protection: Quality awning materials can block a significant portion of harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation, helping to protect skin and furnishings from sun damage.
  6. Energy Efficiency: By reducing direct sunlight and heat exposure, awnings can contribute to lower cooling costs during hot months.

There are different types of awnings available:
