Travel through Europe or the United States and you’ll find Folding Arm Awnings on many shops, bars and homes. This highly flexible lifestyle awning provides shade for outdoor spaces, without requiring any fixed structures.

Shade your windows, patios and outdoor living areas with our simple and neat German designed Folding Arm Awnings. Australians love relaxing outside, so no posts, struts or poles means more outdoor entertaining space. Our innovative design allows the awning to retract into a discrete and unobtrusive position against the building or structure.

Assembled in our Newton factory, but sourced from Germany, the Aluxor awning is considered one of the best awning systems in the world – with strong arm springs, extruded brackets and a high quality paint finish. Combined with Somfy remote motorisation and motion sensors, the Folding Arm can be a simple and quick way to provide shade.

Folding Arm Options:

Stratos I – Open Awning

  • Cost effective, high quality

  • Fully-enclosed headbox ensures optimal fabric protection in the closed position

Folding Arm awnings are commonly used on commercial spaces such as bars, cafes and shopping malls, or in domestic situations where an extended living space needs sun protection.


Aluxor has been supplying the Australian market with Folding Arm Awning components for over 30 years and has a long-standing relationship with Stan Bond.

  • High quality, tensioned spring-loaded, PVC-coated triple steel cables provide added protection against corrosion
  • Individually hung cables provide excellent fabric tension and wind stability
  • Patented brackets and operating components, made from extruded aluminium with a pre-treated, baked enamel finish
  • Construction hardware made from Marine Grade 316 Stainless Steel
  • ‘Selectapitch’ functionality lets you change the angle of the awning to block the morning or afternoon sun


As a standard, all Folding Arm Awnings can be manually adjusted by crank-handle operation. However, you can also select a motor option with wind and motion sensors for automated protection.

Pitch Control:

The adjustable pitch gives you improved shade control. Simply adjust the angle of your awning depending on the position of the sun and weather conditions with the Stratos I and III Folding Arm Awnings. You can set the arm bracket of your Discus to any angle up to 35 degrees.


With Adelaide’s largest choice of outdoor fabrics, you can choose from a broad range of colours, patterns and textures. Folding Arm awnings most often use acrylic fabrics such as Docril, Planosol and Dickson, which allow a filtered light through the fabric while providing 99% UV protection.

Exceptional service and high-quality product. The fact that these guys are local is not just a bonus, it’s essential.

I had Roller Shutters put on the kids room for my house in adelaide CBD. They have worked great for cutting out noise and light so they sleep longer.
