Helioshade Classic Awning

An elegant and compact range of awnings, the HELIOSHADE® Classic & Alto Classic offer a stylish awning design to protect you from the elements.

The Classic range is mounted via a integrated torque bar with numerous attachment options making the HELIOSHADE® CLASSIC range a universal awning option for a large range of applications. Thanks to the chromatising of all aluminium parts as well as screws and nuts made of marine grade stainless steel, the HELIOSHADE® CLASSIC range is extremely resistant to corrosion. Extension of the awning is by means of a SOMFY motor which is backed by a 5 year warranty and also offers the option of automated sun, wind or rain sensors.

Tested and proven to well over 70,000 full cycles, the multiflex 4 cable system is the strongest of its kind on the market. With daily use this is more than a 200-year life span. Ideally suited to our harsh Australian conditions the arm system is optimised for long lasting tautness of the fabric under extended heavy use.

Intelligent Sun Control

The HELIOSHADE® Classic series offers an intelligent sun control solution for all applications. Whether it be for a large terrace area or a small balcony this range of awnings can offer the answer. The unique pitch plus retractable bar of the HELIOSHADE® ALTO CLASSIC offers increase fabric tension to avoid sagging and increased head clearance for that open and airy feeling or to extend over opening doors. The optional variovalance is a vertically adjustable valance which can be extended to 1,600mm offering additional privacy and protection from the sun’s glare.

The articulated arms of the HELIOSHADE® RANGE are characterised by their elegant, eye-catching design and convincing performance. All components have been developed to ensure smooth function and high durability and have proved themselves in very demanding load tests. The use of high-quality extruded sections in combination with joint parts of high-strength die casting and drop-forged arm sections (with a maximum projection of 4500mm) stand for optimal safety even under extreme loads. The specially developed ‘multiflex’ power band, which is made up of four tear-resistant steel cables sheathed in a highly flexible plastic material, is protected against corrosion and damage. It applies the force of up to three spring movements in the upper arm section and ensures proper tensioning of the fabric.


Optional F.T.C. (Flexible Tilt Control) function enables the user to have adjustable pitch control over the angle of the awning on systems up to 6.5 x 3m (6.5x2.5m with VV). Operated by a manual gear and hand crank the angle can be adjusted from 0-80 degrees and offers the option to change the angle with the change of seasons or as required.
