How Do Helioscreen’s Rubix Awnings Work?  

When in use, you can operate the awning with a motorised function or manual crank to extend the arms outwards over your desired coverage area. The awnings arms then retract back into the cassette when not in use. The slim cassette sits flush against the wall with an incredibly discreet cassette dimension size of 154mm deep x 212mm high. One of the slimmest cassette designs on the market.  

The Rubix awning is locally manufactured in Sydney using high-quality materials including chromatised aluminium and marine-grade stainless steel screws. It’s made with high strength extruded brackets to ensure sound and seamless fixing, even on the most difficult of facades.  

The cassette enclosure features cast aluminium end caps to provide the perfect protection from the elements. The Multiflex 4-cable folding arm system has been tried and tested over 70,000 full cycles, making it the strongest, most durable design on the market. 

Finally, it features a Somfy motor backed with a 5-year guarantee and a category 5 Beaufort wind scale rating. So it can withstand winds of up to 38km/hr. An all-around impressive experience in functionality and endurance.

What About Additional Feature Options? 

When it comes to additional accessories, Helioscreen has you covered. Literally. If you’re looking for something extra, these options won’t disappoint:  

Sun and Wind Sensors 

 Sun and wind sensors mean you never have to worry about unpredictable weather. Sun sensors will automatically react and extend when the sun comes out – it’s the ultimate convenience. Alternately, when winds pick up, the sensors will trigger the awning to retract to prevent any damage. No need to keep your eyes on the radar, your awning is one step ahead.  

While sun and wind sensors are convenient, they’re also extremely handy for commercial spaces when you may not have the time to spare fiddling with awning functions. Allowing you to go on with your daily tasks without hassle.  

Somfy Remotes

Who says can’t have both style and convenience? With Helioscreen’s range of Somfy remotes, you have the ultimate control with a touch of a button. Perfect for large outdoor coverage areas and commercial spaces. A little can go a long way.
