This awning projects the fabric off the window, with the arms & fabric forming an arc that allows air to flow behind the awning.
This system is a heavy duty contemporary design ideal for larger windows that can be opened whilst the awning is projected. This heavy duty Pivot Arm provides excellent fabric tension, even with awning widths up to 5 Metres.
Designed to have the same curve as the Straight Drop bottom rail allowing flexibility to mix & match the awnings throughout your home maintaining a design consistency.
An optional sliding arm set facilitates changing the pivot point of the Awning by simply moving the arms up or down the sliding rails. This allows the awning to operate like a normal Pivot Arm in the down position, and in the raised position it allows head clearance over doorways providing a canopy effect.
Provides excellent fabric tension, even with awning widths up to 5 metres. The arms are a modern anodised finish complementing our standard Silver Pearl hardware.
Alpha Awnings proven to reduce cooling energy costs by up to 60%*. Alpha Awnings have been independently tested & proven to significantly reduce cooling energy costs by keeping a standard* home at a consistent & comfortable temperature throughout the summer months.
With an Alpha Awning on your home it will reflect heat, keep interiors cool and reduce energy costs by up to:
|Perth 48%||Adelaide 35%|
|Melbourne 13%||Canberra 35%|
|Sydney 44%||Coffs Harbour 60%|
|Brisbane 58%||Rockhampton 48%|
|Cairns 47%||Darwin 34%|
Alpha Awnings have been tested to comply with a Class 3 level of Wind Resistance under the European standard EN13561: 2009-01. A variety of design options and bottom rail accessories are available to keep awnings secured during windy conditions.
This level of Wind Resistance equates to a rating of ‘6’ on the Beaufort Scale, which is equivalent to a wind speed of 49 km/h. It is recommended that all awnings be retracted in windy conditions.*Results based on a single storey, brick veneer home on a concrete slab using ducted air-conditioning and equally distributed windows with Alpha Awnings installed with Canvas fabric. Based on independent modelling conducted by White Box Technologies in conjunction with Peter Lyons & Associates June 2013.
