Elevate Your Outdoor Living With Awnings And Bask In All-Season Comfort

Combining Functionality and Aesthetics

Australia is renowned for its stunning outdoor environments, and as Aussies, we relish spending time outside, soaking up the sun and admiring the scenery. Whether we’re kicking back on the terrace, hosting gatherings on the verandah, or barbecuing with our nearest and dearest, being outdoors brings us joy and a feeling of belonging.

But bad weather and annoying insects can ruin our outdoor fun. We don’t want to get caught in the rain or be bothered by bugs while enjoying the outdoors.

To guarantee comfort and protection from the elements all year round, a suitable shade solution is crucial. Awnings provide a versatile option for creating new outdoor spaces or expanding existing ones, and they offer both practical and aesthetic benefits.

At Watson, we offer awnings that not only provide exceptional functionality but also have a stunning appearance. With our awnings, you can relish your outdoor living space throughout the year, regardless of the weather.

Why Choose Awnings?


Fabric Awning

Selecting the appropriate fabric is crucial in ensuring the longevity and resilience of your awning against various weather conditions. Since different types of awnings require different types of fabrics, it’s important to consider the type of awning you own before making your selection.

Our awning fabrics are made to endure the harsh weather conditions in Australia while still looking aesthetically pleasing. For instance, our Folding Arm awnings are available in various colours that can be customised to fit your style.

When selecting the fabric for your awning, take into account these key factors:

Air flow

Prefer an unobstructed view and ample air circulation? In that case, Clear PVC is an ideal option. Conversely, suppose you wish to enclose your patio or veranda while also enjoying a refreshing breeze. In that case, you should choose a fabric with approximately 10% openness and an open weave. By doing so, you can establish a pleasant outdoor atmosphere while ensuring proper ventilation.


Outdoor fabrics are frequently subjected to a range of elements that may deteriorate their quality over time. Thankfully, fabrics with DURAGUARD® Fabric Protection are explicitly formulated to withstand stains, prevent odours, inhibit bacterial growth, and deter mildew and fungi accumulation. This ground-breaking protection system helps guarantee that your fabric remains in excellent condition for an extended period, even in the face of severe outdoor conditions.

Colour fastness

Choosing a fabric with excellent fade-resistance to the sun is essential for maintaining the original colour of your awning fabric for many years. It’s recommended to select a fabric that has a fade-resistance rating of 6 or higher to ensure that your fabric retains its colour vibrancy over time. With this feature, you can be confident that your awning will continue to look as good as new, even after prolonged exposure to sunlight.

Privacy and view through

When choosing an awning fabric, it’s crucial to take into account the distinction between open and closed weave fabrics. Additionally, you should consider whether you need privacy during the day or night. While a darker open weave fabric offers excellent visibility during the day, it may compromise your privacy at night by enabling others to see inside. Hence, it’s crucial to carefully evaluate these factors to select an awning fabric that caters to your unique requirements.

Tips 'n Tricks

To ensure that you pick the most suitable fabric for your home or retail space’s awning, consider creating a checklist. A checklist can prove invaluable in helping you identify the best fabric that meets your specific needs. It can also enable you to quickly find answers to any questions that may arise during the selection process. By taking the time to evaluate your requirements and carefully weigh your options, you can find an awning fabric that is a perfect fit for your needs:

  • Purpose: Determining the intended use of your awning is critical in identifying the best solution that satisfies your requirements. Although it may seem like an obvious consideration, different spaces have diverse needs that must be taken into account. For example, an awning meant to cover a swimming pool may not be appropriate for a storefront. Therefore, comprehending the purpose of the awning is key to discovering the optimal solution that fits your precise needs.
  • Space: To ensure that your awning is suitable for the intended space, it’s essential to evaluate the circumstances carefully. Although most options are compatible, some situations may warrant additional consideration. By taking the time to assess the space and its requirements, you can be confident in your selection of the perfect awning for your needs. It’s worth noting that our team is always ready to assist you at every stage of the process, should you require any help.
  • Fabric: For detailed information on our awning fabrics and available options, please refer to the earlier sections. Remember to choose a fabric that aligns with your intended use, as this will help you achieve your desired outcome. For instance, if you require a transparent option, clear PVC may be a more fitting choice than a retractable canvas awning.
