How Do Helioscreen’s Classic Awnings Work? 

Helioscreen’s classic awning with a motorisation function to easily extend the folding arms over your outdoor space. Once use is complete, the arms will retract back into place. The Classic awning features an open style awning that easily mounts onto any facade.  

The Multiflex 4 cable system has been put through rigorous testing throughout 70,000 full cycles, making it one of the strongest on the market. Its design is built to withstand harsh Australian conditions and the arm system is optimised for the long-lasting tautness of the fabric under extensive heavy loads. Better yet, with all components made with chromatised aluminium and marine-grade steel nuts and screws, Helioscreen’s fabric cassette awning is highly resistant to corrosion.  

Finally, it is powered by an industry-leading Somfy motor backed with a 5-year guarantee.

What About Additional Accessories?

When it comes to additional accessories, Helioscreen has you covered. Literally. Check out some of Helioscreen’s most popular options:  

Sun, Rain or Wind Sensors 

When the sun comes out, the sun sensors will react and extend automatically without you having to lift a finger. Alternately, if the winds become too fierce or it begins to rain, your wind or rain sensors trigger the awning to retract, protecting it from any potential weather damage.  

While sun, wind or rain sensors are convenient, they’re also extremely handy for anyone who may not have the time to fiddle with awning functions throughout the day. So you can get on with your day without distraction.  


The vario-valance is a vertically adjustable valance that can be extended to 1.6m offering additional privacy and protection from the sun’s glare.
