Luxaflex Folding Arm Awnings by Sunteca

09 Apr,2008

Folding arm awnings, available from Sunteca are among the most versatile and sensible forms of sun protection you and your home can have.
They extend or retract to achieve the precise amount of shade you want. Awnings above an outdoor entertainment area or poolside are a sensible way to protect you from heat and harmful ultra violet rays.

The folding arm concept means there are no unsightly support posts to take up leisure space. They also extend a long way. Two new Luxaflex folding arm awnings, the Monaco and Bedarra, will extend up to 3.6 meters from a wall.

In addition, the Monaco, which is like a capsule and encloses the fabric and arms while not in use, can be 14 meters wide. You have lots of shade and shelter, literally at your fingertips. The new Luxaflex awnings combine European styling with smart engineering. Both offer the advantages of variable pitch.

This means they can be easily tilted. The homeowner can maximise shade and protection as the sun rises and sets, and as the seasons change. Previously, a tradesman was usually required to carry out such adjustments. The Luxaflex Monaco awning has an adjustable pitch of up to 45 degrees, while the Bedarra offers a generous 60 degrees. The Monaco also incorporates a cassette into which the fabric and folding arms retract. It gives a crisp appearance and protects the components from the elements.

Metal components have a durable powder-coating finish to harmonise with most domestic architecture. The folding arms and tensioning chains are corrosion resistant, marine grade stainless steel, adding to the awnings’ reliability and longevity. Both the new Luxaflex Folding Arm awnings offer a choice of operation – either a manual crank or motor drive. Sun and wind sensors, which operate automatically, are also available.

Fabric is one of the most important aspects of any awning. The proven Luxaflex Solaire acrylic is used with the Monaco and Bedarra models.Available in an extensive range of fashionable colours, both plain and striped, the fabric is specifically designed and made for Australian conditions.
