    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. The difference between the two is based primarily on the positioning and capabilities. The Retractable Awning can extend or retract in response to weather conditions or entertainment preferences. With a motorised mechanism controlled by remote or automatic function, this awning style offers assorted options to suit changing needs.

    In comparison, the Straight Drop Awnings is a traditional style that drops vertically to provide protection from heat and control of external light; this option is typically available as spring operation, crank handle operation, or motorisation.

    How much do retractable awnings cost in Canberra?

    The cost of a retractable awning is dependent on two factors. Firstly, compared to their counterparts, our awnings have an increased life span due to their retractable feature. This reduces the overall exposure to Canberra’s changeable conditions that are detrimental to fixed awnings.

    Secondly, the cost reflects the quality of the product. Adhering to European industry standards, our retractable systems reflect the time, resources, and skills dedicated to providing the ACT with premium retractable awning systems. Our retractable awning range includes chromatised aluminium, durable die-cast parts and secure steel cables for a long-lasting, hassle-free operation and a five-year warranty.

    Key benefits Of Helioscreen Retractable Awnings

    Helioscreen Awnings use quality components designed, engineered, and manufactured in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland. 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, create security and privacy 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

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.
