    Frequently Asked Questions

    Retractable Awning FAQ’s

    What Is the difference between a retractable awning and a drop awning?

    Both the retractable awning and drop awning are popular with our customers.  Retractable Awnings extend out horizontally via articulated “arms” that contain springs which force out the fabric, usually at a pitch of approx 10 to 20 degrees. They provide shade from the high summer sun in the hottest parts of the year, greaty increasing the usability of decks and balconies.

    In comparison, the Straight Drop Awning drops vertically over a window to provide interiors with protection from heat and control of external light.

    Both types of awning can be manually operated with a crank handle, or motorised for greater convenience.

    How much do retractable awnings cost?

    The cost of a retractable awning is dependent on several things. There are different awning models that have different features and size capabilities that need to be taken into account.

    Our awnings start in price from approx $2,800 (for a small sized manually operated basic model), and can reach as high as over $12,000 for a large top of the line motorised awning system.

    The price is indicative of the quality. Helioscreen is a local manufacturer with operations out of the Northern Beaches of Sydney.

    In homes, retractable awnings improve the appearance of and add value to a space by creating additional livable outdoor areas. Somewhere to enjoy the fresh air or views without baking in the full sun. Specifically, they are used to shade decks, pools, verandas or patios, and can be used very creatively in areas like rooftop gardens.

    As a commercial product, they are mostly seen outside of cafes, restaurants and bars, and can greatly extend the usable commercial space for patrons to dine in comfort all year round.

    Why choose a Helioscreen retractable awning?

    Helioscreen is the no-risk choice for retractable awnings. In an industry where cheap products are common, a provider must be experienced, and have the manufacturing knowledge and capability to construct a high-quality product.

    The Helioscreen Retractable Awning range is quality from start to finish. From the initial consultation, customers can rest assured their product is constructed in Australia with components designed, engineered, and manufactured in Europe.

    Key benefits Of Helioscreen Retractable Awnings

    Helioscreen Awnings use quality components designed, engineered, and manufactured in Austria. Each part requires compliance assurance with the industry’s strict European standards before Helioscreen will include them in local manufacturing operations.

    Helioscreen has developed a range of aesthetic and functional solutions to expand external living spaces, and reduce energy costs. Some key identifiers to look for when comparing our world-class products to our competitors are:

    • Our components are made in Europe, while cheaper alternatives are only designed in Europe.
    • We manufacture your retractable awnings in Australia (so we can design your product with precision, exact specifications and provide an efficient turnaround time); in comparison, cheaper alternatives may offer long timeframes, which could reflect overseas manufacturing and often incurs hidden delivery costs and difficulty should issues arise
    • We talk the talk. We know our products and can answer any question you have. We have been in this business for over 30 years and know what works and what doesn’t. Suppose the company you’re working with cannot answer your questions. In that case, it’s potentially indicative of a lack of experience, and we suggest seeking a second opinion.
