Do you find that the position and movement of the sun makes working in your home office impossible at certain points of the day, or that the glare on your television screen makes afternoon viewing impossible?
Does the sun have an annoying habit of shining directly into your kitchen when you’re cooking, making the space far too hot for food prep?
Our collection of drop arm awnings is designed to alleviate all these challenges and more, by offering an adjustable and removable shade which stretches down over specific windows of your property to block the direct glare of the sun – without completely covering the window. Keep reading to find out the benefits of our drop arm awnings, and whether they could be the solution to your home office, living space, or bedroom needs.
The benefits of drop arm awnings
A drop arm awning presents a degree of flexibility which many classic awnings do not – both about the placement of the awning and the way it is used. Named for the arms of the awning which can be dropped to achieve the right angle which will keep the direct glare of the sun away from your window, a drop arm awning is a versatile solution to a problem that many homeowners face.
And the benefits don’t end there. Drop arm awnings are available in a range of sizes with different finishes on both the metal frame and the awning itself – enabling homeowners to select the design and style which complements and best suits their home.
Best of all, because they are fixed to the outside of the property and can be adjusted in terms of the way they deflect the sun’s glare away from a window, they are better suited to living spaces where you want to shield the room from direct sunlight but without shutting it out completely.
Drop arm awnings are exceptionally useful on a sunny day or when you want to shield your window from adverse weather conditions, and are surprisingly unintrusive on those days when you want to let the sunshine in. Fixed by a bracket above your door or window, with arms fixed to the wall at either side of the window or door to hold the awning in position, the concept is incredibly simple and allows for easy adjustment depending on the weather and your individual needs.
Once installed, awnings can be removed from the bracket during the winter months, ensuring that you can maximise their lifespan and keep them inside during the coldest and most adverse weather spells.

From selecting the material to the installation of the system and curtains, Feran’s staff were fantastic. Professional and courteous experience and would highly recommend.
Can’t give enough praise to this company, lovely showroom with superb selection of fabrics for Curtains and Blinds. Jeff the owner and daughter Leah were so helpful and friendly, I must of spent hours trying to choose which fabric, they were very patient, and helped me make decisions. I ordered curtains for the whole house, and the quality and way they were made were outstanding. Jonathan who did the fitting was very professional, and left no mess, and did an excellent job. Everyone that visits asks where I got my curtains. I would highly recommend this company.
Sorry its taken a while to write the review. But Feran are super. They were quick taking in to consideration our circumstances (no curtains at all and a new born baby to try and get to sleep!!). They were fantastic. Also being an Apex window, it was even more technical, but they made it look easy. Thank you Feran.
Curtain making excellence and great customer service. The team at Feran understand the fabrics they are using and have the skills and attention to detail to create outstanding curtains. Highly recommended and we wouldn’t go anywhere else now.
We had 3 sets of curtains made and fitted by Feran – the quality of the fabric and the finish of the curtains is excellent – they look great!
The quality and range of fabrics at Feran in Chelmsford is second to none. The personal service and finished product both in curtains and blinds is excellent. The shop also made me a matching cushion with the spare material free of charge which was a lovely bonus.
An excellent family run business. Very helpful, efficient and polite. The curtains are exactly as we wished and truly enhance the room.
We recently purchased an awning from Feran. We were very pleased with the service they provided; they were always happy to help and quick to respond. We also found the team that installed the awning friendly and it looks well finished.
