Installation and Instructions

Outrigger’s factory is in Brookvale, Sydney, however we can ship awnings to anywhere in Australia (and the World). Although we have our own team of installers operating in the Greater Sydney Region, if you live outside our area any handyperson or builder can follow our instructions to install the awning themselves.

To assist people who live outside the greater Sydney region with the decision to purchase an awning we have prepared some sample installation instructions* for the following awning styles:

Our awning styles can broadly be classified as;

Sail awnings which can be manufactured to almost any shape and size. A sail awning is a lightweight fabric structure with minimal structure. They are free form in appearance and are usually tensioned at each corner with either a turnbuckle or a pulley system.

Retracting awnings which are typically rectangular in shape, however they can be manufactured to a wide range of shapes, or even as retracting sails. Retracting awnings can be manually operated by a winch or crank, of fully motorised.

Batten awnings which can be manufactured to almost any shape and size. Outrigger invented and patented the batten awning which is manufactured like a traditional battened yacht sail. The fabric houses full length aluminium battens which can be straight, pitched, or curved.
