Volkswagen Transporter Barn Door Awning
The Barn door awning, an innovative and simple little accessory at home in any van with two doors at the back giving the same protection as a tailgate.
Made from neoprene (the same stuff as your wetsuit), in a bid to make it as universal as possible. The stretch of the fabric means it will fit most vans with barn doors.
The awning comes with a telescopic Carbon Fibre strut to keep the doors locked open at the correct width, the canvas has two elasticated straps which apply the tension around the tailgate opening, fastening around the hinges and the front lip keeps the awning firmly in place.
The canvas was made using the same machines and skilled hands that make sails for round the world racing yachts, through to Olympic performance dinghies. Whilst our carbon accessories are made up of 3K Pre Preg, roll wrapped 100% carbon fibre from a factory more at home supplying products to the aviation industry.
The Barn door awning is fantastically simple and one of the things we reach to most as it provides some protection from the elements and can be put up in less than sixty seconds.
As much as we would love to be able to guarantee the Barn Door Awnings waterproof rating we unfortunately cannot. We advertise them as a heavy-duty sunshade, which although not fully waterproof will provide protection from the elements.
