In this awning, an aluminum cassette houses the roller tube, fabric and operator perfectly, protecting them from dirt, the elements and wildlife. A specially designed device forces the front bar to pull into the top and bottom profile, forming an enclosure to prevent any unwelcomed creatures from making your awning their home.

The awnings are made to client specification with custom widths between 6’2″ and 19’9″ wide (in 1″ increments). Available projections: 5’0″, 6’9″, 8’4″, 10’0″, 11’8″.

An aluminum cassette encloses the fabric and mechanisms. When the awning is fully retracted, only the cassette, arms and valance are visible. Unlike our competitors, we have ensured there are no gaps between the cassette profiles.

The extruded aluminium dual inclination arm shoulder consists of a specially engineered mechanism that pivots upwards, therefore the front bar and profiles meet perfectly every time. As well as, acting as a “wind lock” to reinforce the shoulder’s capability to resist strong winds.

The specially designed internally reinforced front bar gives continuity to the fabric top and added strength to the overall system. When the awning is retracted, the top profile overlaps the front bar slightly, and water cannot enter the cassette.

Durable, PVC coated aircraft cables connect to the heavy-duty springs inside the arm cavity applying extreme force to keep the fabric tight when extended. Made with extruded thermotreated aluminium and die cast components, the Bravo’s arms are one of the strongest available.

A strong, galvanized and powder coated 40mm square bar with 2mm walls, after 10′ projection, is upgraded to an extruded aluminum profile with 5mm architectural reinforcements ribs that prevent it from twisting.

Rolltec® uses a structural galvanized steel roller tube with spring memory to re-bound to its original shape.

A variety of brackets for any installation. Wall, ceiling, and roof brackets, as well as 4 sizes of rafter-mount brackets (used in combination with ceiling brackets) are available.

Maximize your retractable awning enjoyment with a remote controlled motor from Somfy. Preinstalled at the factory, it only needs to be plugged into the regular outlet.
