A great straight drop option for sun/UV protection, windy applications, plus privacy & block out situations.
Allows up to 30mm of fabric within the channel, therefore eliminating light gaps & reducing the potential for fabric "blow outs" in windy conditions.
Alpha Awnings proven to reduce cooling energy costs by up to 60%*. Alpha Awnings have been independently tested & proven to significantly reduce cooling energy costs by keeping a standard* home at a consistent & comfortable temperature throughout the summer months.
With an Alpha Awning on your home it will reflect heat, keep interiors cool and reduce energy costs by up to:
|Perth 48%||Adelaide 35%|
|Melbourne 13%||Canberra 35%|
|Sydney 44%||Coffs Harbour 60%|
|Brisbane 58%||Rockhampton 48%|
|Cairns 47%||Darwin 34%|
Alpha Awnings have been tested to comply with a Class 3 level of Wind Resistance under the European standard EN13561: 2009-01. A variety of design options and bottom rail accessories are available to keep awnings secured during windy conditions.
This level of Wind Resistance equates to a rating of ‘6’ on the Beaufort Scale, which is equivalent to a wind speed of 49 km/h. It is recommended that all awnings be retracted in windy conditions.*Results based on a single storey, brick veneer home on a concrete slab using ducted air-conditioning and equally distributed windows with Alpha Awnings installed with Canvas fabric. Based on independent modelling conducted by White Box Technologies in conjunction with Peter Lyons & Associates June 2013.
