TILT-O-SHADE™ awning features chain driven arms and arm shoulders with independently adjustable pitch, allowing you to raise or lower the front bar when you want, in a matter of seconds. Since each arm is adjusted individually, the awning can be angled so that one side is higher than the other (for water runoff or more shade on one side of the awning). Before retracting the awning, it is important to have the arms levelled to avoid fabric distortion.

All parts are made from corrosion resistant materials and most are finished with a white powder coating. Each awning is manufactured to the client’s specification with custom widths starting from 6’6″ wide (in 1″ increments) and available with projections of 5’5″, 7’0″, 8’6″, 10’2″ and 12’0″.

The TILT-O-SHADE™ is not available in the Greater Toronto Area (please refer to another adjustable pitch model, the ADALIA X3M PLUS™). The TILT-O-SHADE™ comes with a 5 year warranty on the frame.

 

FRAME COMPONENTS

  • Minimum Width in Relation to Projection Minimum Width in Relation to ProjectionThis chart indicates minimum width required to achieve certain projections with Bravo™ awning.
  • BRAVO™ Cassette BRAVO™ CassetteAn aluminum cassette shields the fabric and internal frame components so that when the awning is fully retracted, only the exterior of the cassette, arms and valance are exposed. Unlike our competitors, we have ensured there are no gaps between the cassette profiles.
  • BRAVO™ Arm BRAVO™ ArmDurable, PVC coated aircraft cables connect to the heavy-duty springs inside the arm cavity applying extreme force to keep the fabric taut when extended. BRAVO™ arms are made with extruded aluminium profiles and thermally treated die cast components, assuring strength and longevity.
  • BRAVO™ Arm Shoulder BRAVO™ Arm ShoulderThe extruded aluminium dual inclination arm shoulder consists of a uniquely engineered mechanism that pivots upwards ensuring the front bar and profiles meet perfectly every time and acting as a “wind lock” to reinforce the shoulder’s capability to resist strong winds.
  • BRAVO™ Front Profile BRAVO™ Front ProfileInternally reinforced front bar gives continuity to the fabric top and added strength to the overall system. When the awning is retracted, the top profile overlaps the front bar slightly, preventing water from entering into the cassette.
  • Roller Tube Roller TubeRolltec® uses a structural galvanized steel roller tube with spring memory to re-bound to its original shape.
  • Square Bar Square BarA strong, galvanized and powder coated 40mm square bar with 2mm walls (on the right) is automatically upgraded to an extruded aluminum 5mm wall, reinforced with architectural ribs square bar (on the left) that prevent it from twisting in large awnings with a projection greater than 10′.
