A Beautiful Functional External Solution where energy efficiency and the reduction of solar heat gain is of your prime consideration.
The Australian designed Alpha Awning series by Hunter Douglas helps to control light, privacy, views, ventilation and reduce solar heat gain. There is 5 types to choose from that will cater to your situation :
Straight Drop Awning
The Straight Drop Awning is a traditional awning style that uses no guides making it ideal for sun/UV protection, air flow and where channels are not suitable. This is the entry level product for the Alpha Awning Series.
Cable Guide Awning
The Cable Guide Awning is a great contemporary straight drop option for sun/UV protection, air flow and where channels are not suitable. The cables are high tensile 2.5mm 316 grade marine stainless steel, making them perfect for coastal applications.
Deep Channel Awning
The Deep Channel Awning is a great straight drop option for sun/UV protection, windy applications, plus privacy and block out situations. This option allows up to 30mm of fabric within the channel, therefore eliminating light gaps and reducing the potential for fabric “blow outs” in windy conditions. This is a cost effective alternative to the Alpha Side Retention System Awning and is capable of accommodating installations that are out of square.
Pivot Arm Awning
The Pivot Arm Awning projects the fabric off the window, with the arms and fabric forming an arc that allows air to flow behind the awning. This allows windows to be open whilst the awning is projected. This system is a heavy duty contemporary design ideal for larger windows.
Side Retention System Awning
The Alpha Side Retention System Awning is a premium, versatile straight drop option ideal for sun/UV protection, insect resistance, windy applications, enclosing a balcony plus creating privacy, light and heat control. 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. As the fabric is held taut between the left and right channels, this system is ideal for enclosing courtyards, patios or balconies, essentially adding an extra room to the home.
The above 5 Alpha Awnings come with a choice of a closed headbox, open headbox or as an open roller and all come with a bottom bar with a few options. Alpha Awnings are manually operated by a crank handle, internal cord winch or spring operated. Motorisation is also available.
