Make the most of your outdoor space with Franciaflex awnings.

The Horizon Awning by Franciaflex is New Zealand’s premier folding arm system, providing complete protection from the elements. Horizon awnings are custom made using high quality components with European technology and styling.

Your Horizon awning can be covered using Docril 100% solution dyed acrylic canvas in 138 colours or Shadeview sunscreen mesh for light shading.

Horizon awnings can be controlled remotely by Alpha motors or with gearbox and crank handle. When motorised, wireless sun and wind sensors can be added to extend or retract the awning as conditions change.

Franciaflex has a long history of producing high quality components for the European shade and window furnishing markets. Most Horizon components are Aluminium or Stainless steel making it the perfect system to stand the test of time in the harsh New Zealand environment.
