Side Retention System
A straight drop option ideal for sun/UV protection, insect resistance, windy applications, enclosing a balcony and creating privacy.
The fabric is tensioned by utilising a floating channel, located within the special two piece side channel, eliminating the possibility of fabric "blow outs"or light gaps.
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.
