ALUCAB Shadow Awning


ALU-CAB Shadow Awning 2m or 2.6m



Like all Alu-Cab products, the self-supporting ALU-CAB Shadow Awning 270° is designed to be quick and easy to use, and with its aluminium-coated canvas it’s equally good at providing shade and cover from the elements, depending on your environment, making it a great choice for most types of weather.

The Shadow Awning has four strong arms, each containing a tie-down strap for extreme weather (a peg bag & pegs are also supplied). One wing includes a handy drop-down leg for windy conditions, but in calm weather there isn’t a risk of your awning blowing away due to the self-supporting nature of the awning

There is also an optional side wall kit which is made of very robust and durable fabric, as well as netted windows and doors, allowing you to make the most of your shadow awning.

So, while Shadow Awning is built tough, it’s also built easy, and is designed to make your camping experience as comfortable and as effortless as possible.

ALU-CAB Shadow Awn is available as standard in Left Hand Side mounting or Right Hand Side (special order).

NEW for 2023

Introducing the 2m 270° Shadow Awning, which is just a tad shorter than our standard 270° Shadow Awning, allowing for applications that need a less long awning on the side of their vehicle (Discovery 1/2/3/4 and DEFENDER 90 or other SWB vehicles and PICKUPs etc) to also cast shade while adventuring.

It’s so easy, one person can manage it. This wrap-around effect means that you get to enjoy 6.1 square metres of shelter around the full working area of your vehicle, especially where it’s needed – at the rear, where your drawer system, fridge, and supplies are stored.

The 2 m 270º Shadow Awning is made from reflective ripstop material which assists in casting a noticeably lower-shade temperature. Without a doubt, the Alu-Cab 2m 270º Shadow Awning is one of our proudest products that’s all out #DesertProof and Africa-proven.


  • LENGTH (when closed): 2 m
  • WEIGHT: 18.5kg
  • SHADE AREA: 6.1 m2
  • CONSTRUCTION: Aluminium
