Somfy® RTS motor
Somfy® motorization allows you to enjoy your retractable awning at the touch of a button. Somfy®'s wide range of motors and controls feature Radio Technology Somfy® (RTS), which provides awning users with simple and innovative operating functions that can be adapted to your lifestyle. Motors come equipped with a plug-in power cable and need a 120v connection. Conveniently, the body of the motor is placed inside the roller tube. Therefore no additional space is required.
Imagine extending your retractable awning effortlessly from inside your home, or while you are already outside so your deck or patio becomes a comfortable, shaded place to spend more time enjoying life.
Somfy® RTS motor with manual override
Power outages happen. Not being able to use your motorized awning because your power is out is an inconvenience. Having a manual override allows you to extend and retract your motorized awning with the use of a traditional crank.
Somfy's Telis RTS hand-held remotes feature Radio Technology Somfy® (RTS), providing push-button control of your retractable awning. The Telis RTS collection is available in single-channel or five channel (To operate more than one awning with group control capabilities).
DecoFlex WireFree™ Wall Switches
DecoFlex WireFree™ RTS wall switches provide the same features as Telis hand-held remotes with the added benefit of being attached to the wall. This provides an ideal way to operate motorized products when entering or exiting a room. Available in single or five-channel versions in white, ivory, and black. These switches are completely wireless and powered by an extended long-life battery which means that they install in seconds and require no costly electrical work.
WireFree™ Wind Sensor
The 3D WireFree™ Wind Senson is a wireless, battery-powered wind sensor that automatically retracts the awning when it detects wind-generated movements.
Like the WireFree RTS Wind Sensor, the Eolis Wind Sensor retracts your awning when it senses high winds. The difference is that the Eolis Wind Sensor must be plugged into the power source.
WireFree™ Sun Sensor
The Sunis WireFree™ RTS Sun Sensor is a wireless sun sensor powered by an integrated solar cell and uses RTS to automatically extend the awning based on the sun's intensity.
Sun and Wind Sensor
This is a combined sun and wind sensor. Our awning will extend on cue when the sun shines and automatically retract when the weather turns windy. This device requires a connection to the power source.
This optional hood is suggested for installations with no overhang to protect the awning (a hood cannot be used in conjunction with ceiling or rafter brackets). A protective hood helps keep your awning looking new for longer by protecting the fabric roll from the elements. A specially designed weather strip at the back closes the gap between the hood and the wall, eliminating the need for caulking.
Retractable awnings have powerful springs in the folding arms to keep the fabric taut. Consequently, the first turn or two, when retracting a fully extended awning, requires a certain amount of physical force when using a crank. For larger awnings, this could be a problem. A spring assist mechanism is suggested to aid you in retracting your awning. The spring assist option can be added to practically any awning upon request.
Removable Front Valance
The removable front valance is an additional panel that is attached by industrial-strength velcro to the existing awning valance. It is an excellent solution for extra sun protection or privacy at the front of your awning. You have the choice of matching awning fabric or screen. The removable front valance can be ordered together with the awning or at a later time.
Retractable Front Valance
Another alternative for additional privacy and shade at the front of the awning is the retractable front valance. The retractable front valance is an adjustable vertical panel that you can roll up and down as needed. It is gear operated and retracts into a front cassette bar. You have the choice of matching awning fabric or screen.
The side curtain is an extra panel hanging on the awning's side. It is attached to the awning with two hooks. The side curtain is handy for northern or southern exposure and is also great for privacy. The side curtain can be made from matching awning fabric or screen. It is recommended you have your awning installed first, adjust it to the desired slope and then order the side curtain.
