Electric Patio Awnings

How do they work?

An electric tubular motor is installed inside the awning fabric tube, neatly hidden away, not requiring any additional space or adding any size to your awning. Electric operation is reasonably quiet, it takes just thirty or forty seconds to extend most patio awnings - and the awning can be stopped part way if desired.

Electric drives are built to different sizes, an appropriate size and torque required for larger or smaller patio awnings. Taking just a 3 amp electric supply, upon open/close, control can then be hard wired to a wall switch, or radio controlled using a handset.

Are they reliable?

We use Becker and Somfy motors. Based in Cluses, France, Somfy invented the tubular electric motor and to this day remain the market leaders. Their roots go back as far as 1750, when craftsmen in the Arve Valley made precision parts for neighbouring Swiss watchmakers in Geneva. In 1969, when a local awning manufacturer wanted to electric power his awnings, Somfy's founders responded designing their first precision electric drive, the LS, with a vast worldwide market waiting to be built.

As industry pioneers, after years of continued development, their products today prove reliable to an extreme - a world apart from substitute imports inside budget electric awnings. At Elegant we have found the Somfy electric drive virtually faultlessly dependable.

Electric patio awnings not only remove bother of manual winding, they also control their opening and closing in a regulated, consistent manner. Correctly extending to their optimum projection, every time, to the centimetre, then retracting at a smooth controlled rate, to a soft close upon every use - this perfectly governed operation takes fine care of a patio awnings frame, its mechanism and fabric roll.

Any further advantages?

We've seen how electric patio awnings are far less frequently left open; subjected less to unnecessary wear, strain, or chancing unattended weather damage. Pressing a button is simply quicker and easier than struggling using long crank handles, therefore just as electric units are easier to open, they prove equally easy to close away each time.

Lastly, electric patio awnings are able to have accompanying weather sensors; electric devices which can auto-close a canopy from wind, or automatically shade interior furnishings from strong sun. Wind & motion sensors are yet another reason why electric systems can last longer; these large patio canopies forming a substantial wind sail area.
