    Guys
    Got a 1 year old Fiama 45S awning.
    Looking to add sides and front panel
    See through rather than solid
    It's more about trying to create a warmer outside dining experience than cutting out the sun

    Any suggestions for the best solution would be appreciated

    Thanks
    Robert

    Hi
    We use windbreak netting. Brilliant stuff, lightweight and quick to put up, easy to stow away. See through. Really blocks out the wind. Can't recall the company name but no doubt someone will come up with it :smiley:

    We've got the lilypad wind breakers or whatever they are called. Used them a few times after we got them but not since. The problem is it takes a while to set them up and you need to be able to get tent pegs in the ground. Then unless you are sure the wind is not going to get up during the night you have to take it all down again and wind the awning in. On the plus side they are light and take up very little space although the poles are a bit fragile.

    However, we do have a PVC with nothing blocking the side door - some have a bit of kitchen in the doorway so when it is a little chilly we can open the side door, pick the table up and eat inside yet we still get the feel of eating outside.
