Helioshade Retractable Cafe Awnings

Built to handle tough Australian conditions

Cafe Awnings

Helioscreen name is synonymous with design, space and light and used throughout Australia to enhance commercial spaces, restaurants, bars and cafes. The retractable awning recommendations for cafes bring together the functionality of the space with the enhancement of the building. A well-designed awning will bring shape and colour to the externals of a building, enhancing a space and making it more attractive and comfortable for customers. As a result, the cafe awnings are considered an investment due to increased revenue following installation.   

Determining which style of awning is best suited to a space is the purpose of the consultation phase by Helioscreen. During this consultation, the following points will be discussed with the cafe owners to build an understanding of the vision for the cafe space:   

  • Understanding the scope and limitations of an awning  
  • Size and application (how does the client want the awning to perform?)  
  • Type of awning
  • Fabric/Material colour and style features  
  • Operation; manual or motorised  
  • The positioning of the awning in response to the positioning of the sun throughout the busy times of the café  
  • Features in response to insulation and heat reduction   
  • Strength and positioning of the support structure  

The solutions showcase high-quality, affordable retractable awnings that combine style, value, and security in a range of models, including Helioscreen Cassette, the Fabric-Cassette, Rubix Cocoon, or Classic models, and more.
