Auto Awnings

The most traditional style of ABSOL Awnings the Auto runs on tracks attached to the wall. This allows the Awning to stay at a pre-determined distance from you window. To operate simply pull the Awning straight down and once released the arms lock into place. If the Awning is unintentionally left out in a storm or high wind the Awning should move itself up the rails and retract, hence the name auto-lock arm. Most Auto Awnings come with a head-box to protect the fabric when it is retracted.
