  • How do straight drop awnings work?
  • Straight drop awnings are a type of shading that can be used to protect your home or business from the sun. They work by suspending a canvas or fabric panel from a horizontal bar, which is then attached to the wall.

    The panel can be raised or lowered as needed, and the angle of the awning can also be adjusted to provide optimum shade. When not in use, straight drop awnings can be retracted against the building to neaten up the appearance of your property.

    They are a popular choice for cafes and restaurants, as they allow customers to enjoy their meals in the cool shade while still being able to see the outside world. But straight drop awnings are not just for businesses – they can also be used around the home to create a sheltered outdoor living space.

    Whether you’re looking for sun protection for your patio or deck, or simply want to add some style to your home, straight drop awnings are an excellent option.

    Straight drop awnings can provide shade and protection from the sun and rain, and they can be an attractive addition to any property or business.

    In most cases, you will not need a permit to install a straight drop awning. However, it is always best to check with your local municipality to be sure. With a little research, you can be on your way to enjoying the benefits of a straight drop awning in no time.
