awning marlborough

Here at KJL Sail we recommend and use Horizon awning systems by Franciaflex. We have been installing these top of the line systems in Marlborough for over 10 years and have had no issues. That is why we can confidently stand behind these as a reliable product as well as being stunning to look at.

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.

Product highlights:

  • Commercial quality
  • Easy to operate
  • 5 year warranty
  • Suitable for windy conditions
  • Most components Aluminium or steel
  • Modular up to 15m wide
  • Awning slope up to 45 degrees
  • Can be remote operated with Alpha Motors
  • Canvas or sunscreen mesh
  • Wide range of colours available


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.





The canopy itself can be made from either acrylic canvas or from a marine exterior mesh material. The acrylic canvas is available in a variety of colours and patterns. The mesh comes in a smaller range of colours and has the slight advantage of filtering the sun rather than blocking it completely.
