Open Cassette Awnings

Non Cassette awnings explained

Basically there is no casing at all around the retracted awning. The fabric is rolled up and the arms are retracted and it is all totally exposed. Due to this lack of protection the most suitable positions to install an open awning would be under large overhang areas such as soffits or eaves. This will then afford some protection against inclement weather conditions.

There are essentially two reasons that would determine the purchase of an open awning – the first being the need for the extension of the awning to be greater than the width, the second is economy. When the requirement is for the awning extension to be greater than the awning width then the necessary construction renders this awning not able to be cassetted.

An intelligent pivoting mechanism lends it a particularly compact and flat appearance when closed. While being extended, the awning remains horizontal and then pivots into the individually pre-set pitch.
