The Alpha Awning Series
Bottom Rail holds the fabric taut & minimises any movement in windy situations.
An additional weight bar can be inserted into the bottom rail for smaller awnings that require additional weight to reduce bottom rail bounce & increase fabric tension.
Secures the awning into the side channel base, cable bracket or breeching staple. As the bolt is inserted inside the base rail, the system maintains its clean aesthetic, and allows the bottom rail to be positioned closer to the ground.
Hold down straps can be used to hold the awning down at various points across the width of the awning. Similar to the locking bolts, the hold down clips insert inside the bottom rail for a clean finish.
The floor surface is often not perfectly level. When an awning is installed over a wide width there will be room for light gaps, insects, debris, wind & rain to enter. A pile brush or a fabric valance can be inserted eliminating this gap.
There are numerous choices of awning fabric on the market.
When selecting your fabric, keep the following in mind
If you are enclosing a verandah or patio, consider if you still want to have a nice cool breeze coming through. If this is required, ensure you select an open weave fabric with around 10% openness.
There are open & closed weave awning fabrics. Consider if you want day or night time privacy. An open weave fabric in a dark colour gives fantastic view through in the day, but also allows others to see in at night.
Fabrics with Duraguard® Fabric Protector effectively repel most stain causing agents with its proven, water based, preventative, formula. It makes cleaning & maintaining the fabric much easier.
Ensure the fabric you choose has excellent fade resistance to the sun. Any fabric with a fade resistance result of 6 & above will ensure your fabric remains the colour you selected for many years to come.
