The arms are the heart of any retractable awning system. The strength of the arms dictates the performance of the unit. The arms are what transfers the tensions from the internal spring to the front bar, creating a tight fabric and a high performance product.
The patented belt is made of up nine stainless cables that are totally sealed in a poly carbon UV resistance PVC coating. This PVC covering prevents wear and damage that can occur with chains & cables, ensuring a corrosion resistant product.
These revolutionary belts have been tested to exceed 60,000 cycles, which is 10 times more than the traditional chains or cables. Every single one of these belts are tested to 700kgs maximum load, which is twice as much as will ever be used. The arms are a combination of injection die cast, gravity die cast and extruded aluminum.
Final arm assembly is done with robotics to provide optimum consistency and quality. Then computer matches in pairs to ensure equal tension. This brilliant combination of durability, power and beauty is now setting a new higher standard in the retractable awning industry.
