Fall arm awnings
High performance solar fabrics that absorb and deflect harmful solar radiation.
One of the factors that characterises an AC Screens Fall-arm Awning as the best on the South African market is their wind or storm resistant arms, which absorbs most of the wind energy that is the major cause of deterioration and damage to awning fabric.
Fall arm awnings in action
Our two basic models are each available in two sizes and applied according to specification. Mechanically superb, both models are supplied in a powder-coated finish from a carefully pre selected colour range.
Motorised or operated manually by means of a gear mechanism and crank handle, the front profiles extend the arms of the awning 90º out and away from the window and drops the fabric back a further 30º.
Automation by means of a range of sun, wind and rain sensors, and timers, remote controls and home automation interfaces is optional.
Manual operation from inside the room is possible with an attractive universal gear and crank mechanism.
The benefits of Fall arm awnings
Freedom in comfort
Utilising high performance solar fabrics that absorb and deflect harmful solar radiation, optimal protection over the greater surface of the window is achieved without the feeling of being closed in. Wind or storm resistant arms are optional.
When in use the front profiles in conjunction with well-constructed arms that conceal heavy-duty stainless steel springs ensures lateral stability of the awning and absorbs most of the wind energy that is the major cause of damage to conventional awning fabric.
Easy to maintain
All fixatives inside the awning are of stainless and because of their unique construction fall arm awnings require minimal maintenance.
