    Strong Arms

    The heart of the awning

    The Helioshade® articulated arm is characterised by its eyecatching design and convincing performance. All components have been developed to ensure smooth functioning and high durability, which have proved themselves in very demanding load tests.

    The use of high-quality aluminium profiles in combination with high-strength cast and drop-forged components stand for optimal safety even under extreme load. The specially developed Multiflex power band is made up of four tear-resistant steel cables sheathed in a highly flexible plastic material protecting against corrosion. It applies the force of up to six spring movements in the arm sections and ensures proper tensioning of the awning, whilst still allowing
    flexibility during gusts of wind.

    Variovalance

    The first awning of its kind

    The Helioshade® Cassette is the first awning with a vertically adjustable valance that can easily be fitted after installation.

    The Variovalance, designed to complement the overall appearance of the awning, can be extended to 1,600mm offering additional privacy and protection from the setting/rising sun’s glare.
