Awnings are great for providing protection from the sun and rain, however not from wind. But the addition of front and side windbreaks not only provides wind protection but helps secure the awning with an additional 4 tie down points per windbreak
Same great quality as the awning. Easy to install, and adds more shade

This is a great addition to the ARB Al 2500 awning and attaches in a novel way using a sewn in bead that slips into the aluminum channel of the awning. The only negative is the stake out straps, which don't have enough length to be versatile. You pretty much have to stake it down close to the ground or directly on it. I installed lengths of rope with tent tighteners to allow for a shallower angle in case of rain, or wanting more shelter from the sun. Luckily there are some grommets along the ground edge that facilitate adding guy lines. I wouldn't actually set up this accessory wall if there was much wind, unless the ground was really good for staking.
