The back area of this town house in Sydney inner city faces north west and has full sun all year round. This aspect is fantastic in winter, but during summer it becomes far too hot and bright.
The requirement by the client was for a retractable shading solution for the summer months and due to the intense heat a fabric with high reflective properties was key due to unwelcome glare. The solution was a Helioscreen HM 65-95 pivot arm awning with off white Helio 100 solution dyed acrylic fabric. The system has a compact head box / cassette at just 95x95mm square. This encapsulates the fabric when not in use giving the fabric better longevity as its stored out of the elements when not in use. The product can be powder coated to any colour in the Dulux powder coat colour range which offers over 200 options. This choice was a bold red to match the striking facade.
