Teknica 5000 | Side Retention Exterior Roller Awning

With head box and side channel as standard, the fabric is tensioned by utilising a floating channel, located within the special two piece side channel, eliminating the possibility of fabric “blow outs” or light gaps.

solare teknica
As the fabric is held taught between the left and right channels, this system is ideal for enclosing courtyards, patios or balconies, essentially adding an extra room to the home.

The Solare Teknica 5000 is a great way to shelter courtyards and other outdoor space from wind, insects and UV rays. Enquire with Peter Meyer today or explore more of our great outdoor blinds in Sydney.

weight bar

Weight Bar
The heavy duty bottom rail has been designed to offer an additional weight bar, this is beneficial for smaller awnings that require further weight to reduce bottom rail bounce and increase fabric tension.

hold down strap

Hold Down Strap
Hold down straps can be used to hold the awning down at various points across the width of the awning. This option also offers a traditional no guide system where the awning is simply locked into place via straps. Similar to the locking bolts, the hold down clips also insert inside the bottom rail for a clean bottom rail finish.

locking bolt

Locking Bolt
The locking bolt secures the awning into the side channel base cable bracket or breeching staple.

pile brush & valance

Pile Brush and Valance
As experienced in a number of Australian homes, the floor surface is often not perfectly level. Therefore when an awning is installed over a wide width there will be room for: light gaps, insects, debris, wind and rain to enter your courtyard or home. With the ability to insert either pile brush or a fabric valance, this gap canbe eliminated therefore maximising the functionality of the awning. In addition to the protection offered by these inserts they also protect the bottom rail from chipping if dropped to the ground quickly and changing the overall look of the awning based on the valance style chosen.


Air flow

If you are enclosing a verandah or patio, consider if you still want to have a nice cool breeze coming through. If this is required ensure to select a open weave fabric with around 10% openness.

Privacy and view through
There are open and closed weave awning fabrics. Consider if you want day or night time privacy. A open weave fabric with in a dark colour gives fantastic view through in the day, but also allows others to see in at night.

Be mindful that when a fabric is outdoors it is exposed to the elements. Fabrics with Sanitized® Antimicrobial Protection or DURAGUARD® Protection keeps odours away, protects against the development of bacteria, resists stains and stops mildew and fungi build up ensuring freshness in your home.

fabricsColour fastness
