What is a freestanding awning?
A freestanding awning is a shelter that can be set up quickly and easily, without the need for poles or guy ropes attached to fasten the awning. It is still highly recommended that you use poles and guy ropes in windy conditions whilst using a freestanding awning.
Benefits of freestanding awnings
Compared to traditional awnings freestanding awnings offer several advantages:
Ease of use: Setting up a freestanding awning is quick and straightforward. You don't need to worry about placing down any poles or guy ropes when the conditions permit.
Durability: Most freestanding awnings are made from high-quality materials that can
withstand harsh weather conditions. Whether it's wind, rain, or intense sun, you can count on your awning to protect you from the elements. Due to the wind testing we completed on our 270 freestanding awning we have seen how strong awnings need to be to cope in harsh conditions.
Awning Accessories: Accessories enhance the functionality and convenience of your awning, making it a more enjoyable space for relaxation and entertainment. Features such as LED lighting and awning poles will enhance your freestanding awning experiences.
How to choose a freestanding awning
If you're convinced that a freestanding 4WD awning is the right choice for you, here are some factors to consider when choosing one:
Size: Freestanding awnings come in a range of sizes, our 270 freestanding awning covers a whopping 13.5m2 so think about how much space you need. Do you want an awning that can accommodate just you and a friend, or do you need one that can fit your entire family?
Material: Look for an awning made from high-quality, durable materials such as polycotton ripstop canvas. These materials will hold up better over time and provide superior protection from the elements.
Weight: Freestanding awnings can be heavy, so make sure you choose one that you can comfortably carry and set up on your own. Our traditional awnings and pull out awnings weigh between 10.5kgs and 23kgs whereas our 270 freestanding awning weighs 26kgs so ensure you can carry the weight before purchasing
