ALUX HOME LIVING offers a complete suite of Folding Arm Awnings to compliment your home or business.
Designed in Italy and manufactured locally in Queensland, these awnings have won Red Dot Design awards for excellence in design, aesthetics and functionality.
This suite of 4 awnings styles can withstand winds up to 50km/h if they are left out.
The KLIP system is referred to as an open style (no headbox) profile ideally suited for wall mounted (face) applications. It’s end mount roller brackets are vertically orientated to offer the closest fit against the wall. It’s sleek designer front bar with the round profile means you no longer have to hang a valance to cover what is commonly an unsightly profile.
Die Cast Aluminium brackets and end supports offer no hard line edges. Stainless Steel screws, bolts and other components, including the spring loaded arm teflon coated 8 link configuration elbow chain are used to ensure the longevity of the product.
Colour co-ordinated plastic covers are used to conceal certain screws and bolts which add only add to it’s aesthetic appeal.
An optional accessory is the Aluminium Hood that is fitted over the top of the roller profile back at the wall to protect the operating mechanism and the fabric when it’s not in use.
Suitable for use domestically outside the home or for commercial purposes. A very versatile system that looks and functions beautifully.
The maximum width of a single unjoined awning is 7m with a projection of 3.5m. The angle or pitch of the fabric fall can be as little as 5 degree below the horizontal down to 65 degrees.
The metal frame colour options are White, Ivory, Graphite and Metalised Grey.
Fabrics most commonly used on Folding Arm Awnings are Acrylic Woven ranges.
Operation is by the following methods:
Remote Control – For an investment of this type, this is well worth consideration. By use of market leading remote control motor technology, you can simply project out and retract in your awning by the push of a button. For further piece of mind, we can link a movement sensor up to communicate with the motor to retract the awning if it’s jolted in the wind past the threshold set (most commonly used sensor). For the same outcome, a spinning wind sensor mounted close by is another method.
Crank Control – A manual geared solution in which a metal cranking handle is rotated to project and retract the awning.
Folding arm awnings are designed predominantly to provide Sun protection, however they can withstand mild rain shower events. Fabric should always be dried off as soon as possible after being wet to avoid any staining or mildew build up over time. Remember to retract your awning at the onset of any storm event or extreme wind.
