Extend Your Outdoor Spaces & Enjoy Year-Round Comfort

Australia’s all about the great wide outdoors. We love to live outside, and when you’re surrounded by so much wonderful nature, why wouldn’t we?

Even when we’re home, we love to lounge about on the patio, have a drink on the verandah, swim in the sunshine and organise endless barbecues with friends and family. It’s all about camaraderie and joy.

So it does put a damper on things when a typical Aussie storm charges through. Nobody wants to be enjoying a steak, soaked, or have their wine mixed with rainwater. Or have an all-out battle with them creepy-crawlies. Grilled grasshopper anyone? 

Having the right shade protecting you from the sun, rain and insects can not only enhance your living experience, it also adds value to your home.

 Whether you’re extending an already existing space like a verandah or are looking to create a new one from scratch, awnings can be a versatile solution. Plus, at Watson, we’ve made them look fantastic too!

Why Opt For Awnings?

Fabrics

Fabric Awning

We trust our awning fabrics so much, they come complete with a 10-year warranty. 

We know exactly what we’re dealing with when it comes to Aussie weather, so these fabrics have been specifically manufactured to face up to any storm that comes your way. They’re also great for holding their own in the scorching sun, and they look phenomenal doing it all the whole time. Some, like the Folding Arm awnings for instance, even offer custom colour options. 

Certain types of fabrics are recommended for specific awnings and this often depends on the type of awning, as it affects how it can withstand the weather. 

There are numerous choices of awning fabrics on the market. When selecting your fabric keep the following in mind:

Air flow

Clear PVC is great for unrestricted view and when air flow is not an option. If you’re enclosing a verandah or patio, you might still want to have a nice cool breeze coming through. If this is required, ensure you select an open weave fabric with around 10% openness.

Durability

When a fabric is used outdoors it’s exposed to the elements. Fabrics with DURAGUARD® Fabric Protection keeps odours away, protects against the development of bacteria, resists stains and stops mildew and fungi build-up.

Colour fastness

Ensure the fabric you choose has excellent fade-resistance to the sun. Any fabric with a fade-resistance of 6 or above is advised, and will ensure your fabric remains the colour you selected for many years to come.

Privacy and view through

There are open and closed weave awning fabrics. Consider if you want day or night time privacy. An open weave fabric in a dark colour gives fantastic view-through in the day, but also allows others to see in at night.

Tips 'n Tricks

Whether you’re after an awning solution for home or your retail space, it can help to go over a checklist so you can be sure to come up with something that’s best suited to your requirements. 

As simple as it can be, when you start getting into the process some questions are bound to come up, and this way you’ll have the answers sooner rather than later.

  • Purpose: You might think this a bit silly. After all, you want an awning, you know your purpose! Well because, an awning that’s meant to cover a swimming pool for instance may not suit a storefront. Different spaces have different needs, so knowing exactly what it’s for is half the battle won.
  • Space: Now you know what purpose your awning serves, it’s time to look at whether your choices fit into the space. For the most part they do, but sometimes things are a little trickier than they seem. So it can help to take a moment to regroup. Trust us, we can help you find the awning you need. 
  • Fabric: If you head on up a little, you’ll get the full lowdown on our awning fabrics and the options available. Choosing what you want though will depend once again on your purpose. If you want something you can see through for example, then clear PVC may be the way to go.
