The advantages of a Convertible Awning are its simplicity, reliable operation, Practacality and low costs.
A Convertible awning is suitable for any window application . When the awning is partially extended it provides protection from overhead sun i.e. north facing windows, whilst still retaining a view to the outside. When the awning is fully extended it covers the entire window and provides protection from the sun at low angles.
The lengths of the arms are approximately half the drop of the awning. These types of awnings are usually driven by a chord operation.
This type of awning does not normally have a headbox but one can be supplied if required.
