    Main solution

    The Axis SRS awning is a premium, versatile straight drop option ideal for: sun/UV protection, insect resistance, windy applications, enclosing a balcony, as well as light and heat control. The fabric is tensioned by utilising a floating channel and is ideal for enclosing courtyards, patios or balconies, essentially adding an extra room to the home as well as eliminating fabric blowouts. Two piece Side Channel designed to provide a neat, clean finish meaning no screws and rivets are visible.

    The floating channel creates installation flexibility as the fabric can “float” within the side channel and accommodate some out of square mounting surfaces and fabric shrinkages. The floating channel feature will also move with the wind and take strain off the welds and joins in the fabric. Clever sound bumpers have been incorporated into the floating channel to minimise noise when operating or in windy conditions.

    The Axis Cable awning is a great contemporary straight drop option for: sun/UV protection, air flow and where channels are not suitable. The cables are made of high tensile 2.5mm 316 grade marine stainless steel, making them perfect for coastal applications.
