Manual crank

The geared crank ensures easy operation that is not dependent on your strength. Available in:

  • 9:1 ratio gear or 4:1 for smaller awnings.
  • Black, grey or white colours and polished zinc in various lengths.

Light lift

An innovative operating option that allows you to raise and lower the awning to any desired position by simply moving the bottom rail by hand.

Bottom rail accessories

The Alpha Awning Series Bottom Rail keeps the fabric taut and reduces movement in windy conditions.

Weight bar

For smaller awnings that require additional weight to reduce bottom rail bounce and increase fabric tension, an additional weight bar can be inserted into the bottom rail. Per metre, an additional 1.2kg can be added.

pile brush & valance

Pile brush & valance

A floor's surface is not always perfectly level. When an awning is installed over a large area, light gaps, insects, debris, wind, and rain can enter. To close the gap, insert a pile brush or a fabric valance.

Locking bolt

Secures the awning into the side channel base, cable bracket or breeching staple. As the bolt is inserted inside the base rail, the system maintains its clean aesthetic and allows the bottom rail to be positioned closer to the ground.

hold down strap

Hold down strap

Hold down straps can be used to hold the awning down at various points

across the width of the awning. Similar to the locking bolts, the hold-down clips insert inside the bottom.

External fabric

Fibreglass sunscreen

With an inherently strong fibreglass core made of natural silica for superior fire retardance and consistent UV control. Fibreglass external sunscreens provide exceptional performance with low stretching, creasing and shrinking, making them ideal for side retention system applications.

Polyester sunscreen

These sunscreens, made with a PVC polyester weave, provide excellent UV protection and are widely available in a variety of openness factors.


If you are enclosing a veranda or patio, consider whether you want a nice cool breeze to come through; if so, an open weave sunscreen is best.

Privacy & view through

Consider whether you want privacy during the day or at night. An open weave fabric in a dark colour allows for great visibility during the day but also allows others to see in at night.


Duraguard® Fabric Protector's proven, water-based, preventative formula effectively repels most stain-causing agents. This fabric protection is completely invisible and highly stain repellent. It greatly simplifies cleaning and maintaining the fabric.

Colour fastness

Make sure the fabric you choose has excellent sun fade resistance. Any fabric with a fade resistance rating of 6 or higher will ensure that the colour you chose lasts for many years.
