Do awning windows fold?
Kampa use a high quality window material designed to give the clearest view out. Due to environmental regulations, the composition of the window material means that there may be some impressions in the window, particularly after storage and folding. These are not faults. We suggest, particularly in cold conditions, and certainly in sub-zero temperatures, that the awning/panels containing the windows are thoroughly warmed up before set up.
Kampa windows have been tested to -20°C but it is essential that the windows are prewarmed before unfolding.
Before unfolding the windows can be warmed up by bringing the awning into a warm vehicle, or by applying heat directly to the windows with a hair dryer or similar appliance.
Cloudy marks can sometimes form on the window material if packed slightly damp. This can be resolved by good tensioning of the awning and heat from the sun when next setup. Deeper marks, such as zip marks and folds, can be improved by applying heat directly to the window with a hair dryer or similar appliance.
Whilst we do not recommend use of our awnings in snowy conditions, many customers still do. We would recommend that any snow build up against the awning windows should be immediately removed as the cold surface and pressure from the snow can cause damage to the windows including small splits.
