Dickson has recently launched the Dickson Designer, a world-first I phone app that allows users to see how awnings will appear in their home prior to installation.

Available through the Apple iTunes Store, the simulator produces an accurate rendition of how awnings will look when installed, and provides customers with the opportunity to compare different awnings anywhere, anytime.

Highly convenient, the simulator is compatible with the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad (Requires iOS4.0 or later).

Users can view the simulated awnings in an efficient manner as the app is simple and easy to use.

Simply take a photo with any of the three Apple devices, select the style of awnings, along with fabric colour and a realistic image of how the awnings will look is produced.

This provides homeowners and renovators with the comfort in knowing that the final product will be the same at home as imagined at the stores of Dickson resellers.

The awning simulator provides users with the choice of four different types of awnings:

  • Folding arm awning
  • Vertical blind
  • Drop arm awning 
  • Dutch canopy
With over fifty different fabric types on offer, including Orchestra, Rhythm and Harmony, Sunbrella and Sunworker, the choices are endless.
