Awnet was established in 1980, supplying shop-front presentations for major Australian corporations. Awnet pioneered the world’s first fibreglass awning. Awnet has continued to supply signage and shelter related products to Australia’s leading companies, such as Coca Cola, McDonalds & Lion.
With the creation of Street Cafe Barriers Awnet introduced ‘alfresco dining’ to the City of Melbourne which then spread throughout Australia. Many other countries are experiencing the benefits from our approach to Market Umbrella and Cafe Barrier designs.

Graphics & Printing
Awnet use a wide range of technologies to brand our client’s logos and graphics onto durable outdoor substrates.
Currently using a Grand Format UV digital printer which can print up to 3m wide.
Screen printers make Awnet the only company able to print ‘five colour process’ onto acrylic canvas umbrellas.
Thermal welding machines allow Awnet to weld barriers instead of sewing, which massively increases the strength of the finished product.
Awnets ‘Textile Team’ is comprised of skilled sewers who are trained to handle heavy GSM fabrics. Such fabrics are used so the finished product is not only better looking, but also has a longer life span.
Awnet has pattern makers tailoring covers to suit all shapes and sizes, making sure the barriers and umbrellas are drum tight.
Awnet also has a massive, 11m long x 3.2m wide, fully automatic cutter, allowing them to accurately cut all the umbrella and barrier patterns at an incredible speed.
