A motorised patio awning from Aalta Australia was installed on the deck of a newly renovated home to keep the area cool and comfortable for the residents.

The home was recently renovated by the owners in a classy and contemporary style, helping keep it warm and welcoming. However, the north-facing home had to deal with a deck exposed to the full heat of the sun. The interior of the home was also affected by the heat.

The homeowners needed a solution that would block out the heat of the direct sun without impacting the aesthetic appeal of the construction. It was also important to maintain as much natural light as possible in the afternoon.

The Aalta patio awning was the perfect choice for this particular application. Featuring a sleek, contemporary design within a compact frame, this motorised awning is held under tension by means of a spring system and operated via remote control. The fabric travels smoothly along a wheeled runner system; when the awning is retracted, the fabric is completely rolled up inside the head box, creating a neat, clean-lined structure over the area.

Aalta supplied and installed the patio awning measuring 3795mm x 2270mm in size and featuring a white powder-coat finish with Lisos Coco 3601 fabric. The owners now have a home with a classy deck that remains cool even when the sun is directly hitting the area but also allows natural light in once the sun’s rays are no longer a problem.
