Motorised Awning for BiFold Doors in Southampton

We installed this 3.5 x 3m full cassette motorised awning to a bungalow in Southampton, Hampshire. The awning needed to sit above floor-to-ceiling bifold doors, but there wasn’t enough room to fix a cassette onto the wall as the soffit was too low. To overcome this, we installed gutter brackets so the awning could sit high enough so as not to obstruct the doors when they open out. This awning provides plenty of shade over the patio and helps keep the indoor living area cool.

Electric Awnings For Bifold Doors

Awnings are a popular addition to bi-fold doors. They provide fantastic shade for your patio or garden, but they also block sun glare and help keep your indoor living areas cool during hot weather. Furthermore, awnings give the illusion of extending your living spaces outdoors so you can enjoy a lovely alfresco ambience, whether you’re relaxing on your sofa inside or on a sun lounger outside. Awningsouth has various types of bifold door awnings to choose from, and every awning is made to order with custom measurements for the perfect fit.

Gutter Brackets

We use gutter brackets when there isn’t enough wall space between the top window frame and the soffit or drain pipe, as is often the case with bifold doors. These custom made brackets are fitted to the wall on either side of the doors using a mounting plate to spread the load. This creates the extra height required to hold the awning safely and securely and allows the doors to open freely without catching on the awning cassette.
