As we have all experienced, many an awning has been destroyed due to
the wind. Due to our sturdy construction, our awnings can withstand a strong
breeze and steady wind without the need for poles and ropes –
we say 15/20 knots is the time when you should put the additional pole and
Just like undertaking any outdoor adventure, it’s best to be conservative in
our setups as wind is not a constant, whilst the wind may be blowing 20 knots
one minute, next minute a gust of 30 knots may come through – so use your
discretion and use the down a pole if you think it needs it, and a tie down
if it’s incredibly wind. Be assured in the knowledge that the 30 Second Wing
Awning is the toughest around.
A tip to be extra safe is to face your vehicle in to the wind as this creates
down pressure on the awning and be assured in the knowledge that on a windy
day when everyone else is packing their awning away, you’ll probably still be
enjoying your 30 second Wing Awning and all the shade it offer.
