As Australians, we take great pride in our stunning outdoor spaces and relish spending time outside, soaking up the sun and relishing the scenery. From unwinding on the patio to hosting gatherings on the verandah or barbecuing with loved ones, outdoor activities bring us joy and a sense of community.

Nevertheless, the fickle weather and bothersome insects can sometimes mar our outdoor experience. No one wants to get caught in a sudden rainstorm or besieged by bugs while enjoying the great outdoors.

To guarantee year-round comfort and protection from the elements, the right shade solution is crucial. Awnings offer a versatile option for creating a new outdoor area or expanding an existing one, and they provide both practical and aesthetic advantages.

At Watson, we specialise in awnings here in Wollongong that offer exceptional functionality while also looking stunning. With our awnings, you can savour your outdoor living space year-round, regardless of the weather, in a unique way.

Why Choose Awnings?

To ensure the longevity and durability of your awning, it’s crucial to choose the appropriate fabric that can withstand various weather conditions. Since different types of awnings require different types of fabrics, it’s important to consider your specific awning type before selecting one. Our awning fabrics are designed to endure harsh Australian weather conditions while looking aesthetically pleasing. Our Folding Arm awnings offer custom colour options to match your personal preferences. As you choose from the various awning fabrics available, remember to consider the following factors:

Air flow

For those who prioritise an unhindered view and proper ventilation, Clear PVC is the way to go. However, if you wish to enclose your patio or veranda while still enjoying a fresh breeze, choosing a fabric with around 10% openness and an open weave is the ideal solution. This creates a snug and comfortable outdoor space while maintaining proper airflow.


Fabrics used in outdoor areas are frequently exposed to different elements that can deteriorate their quality. Fortunately, fabrics that incorporate DURAGUARD® Fabric Protection are specially formulated to resist stains, prevent odours, inhibit bacterial growth, and deter mildew and fungi formation. This advanced protection system ensures that your fabric remains in excellent condition for a longer period, even when exposed to tough outdoor conditions.


To keep your awning fabric looking vibrant for years, it’s crucial to choose a fabric that has excellent sun-fade resistance. Opt for a fabric with a rating of 6 or higher to ensure that your fabric’s colour stays intact, even after prolonged sun exposure.

Privacy and view through

When selecting an awning fabric, it’s crucial to understand the distinction between open and closed weave fabrics. Additionally, you must assess your privacy needs during the day and at night. Although a dark-coloured open weave fabric provides good visibility during the day, it might compromise your privacy by allowing others to see inside at night. Hence, it’s critical to evaluate these factors carefully to pick an awning fabric that satisfies your unique requirements.

Tips 'n Tricks

Making a checklist can aid in the selection of the perfect awning fabric for your home or retail space in Wollongong. It enables you to choose a fabric that meets your specific needs and helps you find answers to any questions that may arise during the process quickly and efficiently. With careful consideration of your requirements and options, you can find an awning fabric that suits your needs perfectly.

  • Purpose: To find the right solution for your needs, it’s crucial to identify the exact purpose of your awning. Different spaces have different requirements, so understanding the intended use of your awning is essential. For instance, an awning designed for a swimming pool may not be the best choice for a storefront.
  • Space: Once you’ve determined the purpose of your awning, it’s crucial to verify its suitability for the intended area. While most choices are generally suitable, some scenarios may require extra evaluation. By carefully assessing the space and its needs, you can select the ideal awning for your requirements. Don’t forget that our team is available to assist you at every stage of the process.
  • Fabric: For a more comprehensive understanding of our awning fabrics and the various options available, please refer to the detailed information provided above. Keep in mind that the choice of fabric should be tailored to your specific needs. For instance, if you need a transparent option, clear PVC may be a better fit than a retractable canvas awning.
