Ostrich 270 Wing Awning
The Ostrich 270 Wing Awning made by African Offroad is a fully trussed aluminium framed awning that pivots through 270 degrees. It features a 100% canvas canopy, a 100% canvas bag, (allowing the canopy to dry out without smelling mouldy). The awning also has oversized YKK Zippers and is manufactured in South Africa to a reasonably high standard.
It's armed feature rated eyebolts at the ends for tiedown points in heavy weather. The Company's "not fragile" slogan on the awning's name tag sums it up.
The arms are 2.45m long, It has a pitchpole in the center and you can set up is under 15 seconds. Pack-up is about 25 seconds. A refreshing feature being that the canvas actually fits into the bag .
Wall kits are heavy duty canvas also, the use of massive zipper teeth allow walls that are dirty or mud infused to still zip up. Every wall fits every panel, even sideways.
This is a good value product with good supply channels, an excellent warranty and all spare parts available. The awning is built to be repairable with all components removable. It is built for a lifetime of use.
Installation of this awning (and all pole less awnings) requires the pivoting rear of the awning to have twist-resistant secure mounting points. See our Fitting kits page for brackets to fit it to your rack, tent or vehicle directly.
Mounting the awning is straightforward once bracktes are on, and the awning comes with 20mm spacers that are adjustable up and down via 4 T Bolts. The awning offers great coverage with arms extending 2.45m from the pivot point. The back plate allows mounting points to be up to 2150mm apart.
