Stretch + OptiStretch| Sottezza | Pure + Originale

Compare Options | Stretch + OptiStretch

2 Stretch Systems | Comparison

The Sottezza Pure and Originale Stretch, along with the OptiStretch, boast identical frame systems and employ the same tensioning mechanism for conservatory awnings. However, what sets them apart lies in their fabric guidance mechanisms.

stretch systems comparison

Stretch System

Within the Stretch System, fabric tension occurs between the roller tube and the front profile, resulting in a gap of up to 25 mm between the fabric and the support channel. In larger constructions, fabric sagging of approximately 15 cm may occur, mitigated by the option to use distance ropes for support, the quantity of which depends on the projection. Moreover, acrylic and polyester fabrics enable the stretching of side edges.

OptiStretch System

Contrastingly, the OptiStretch system features a PVC fabric guide profile within the support channel, ensuring optimal fabric tensioning in all four directions. This setup eliminates the possibility of sideways reveal and completely closes the system without any fabric gap, resulting in perfectly taut fabric on all sides. Additionally, the OptiStretch system offers superior rolling properties compared to its Stretch System counterpart.

support wires

Distance ropes

Distance ropes are used in large constructions to limit fabric sag.

Operation of the distance ropes

  • After the awning has been completely ascended, after installation, side edges of fabric should be at most 3 cm beneath the bottom edge of the support channels.

Position of the support wire brackets

  • In the vicinity of the support channel brackets
  • Evenly distributed across the projection angled at regular intervals

The above table shows the minimum number of distance ropes, depending on the projection and cassette width. Additional distance ropes are recommended in case of heavy wind impact. In principle, the Sottezza Pure OptiStretch does not require a distance rope. These are optionally available for the achievement of the wind resistance class 2.

After installation, the bottom of the cassette is opened to verify the proper alignment of the rope around the pulley block. A belt strap is used to keep the bottom of the cassette open. The faceplate can then be easily unclamped, allowing convenient access to the receiver or power supply pack for servicing.

Weinor Options | Design Your Custom System

Weinor offers a range of options for customers to design their custom patio system. With a variety of materials and colours to choose from, you can create a personalised outdoor space that perfectly complements your home and style.

Weinor | My Collections 2


My Collections 2 is Weinor’s new fabric range consisting of 3 different colour collections and ways. It’s a huge range of 143 new-release colour patterns for you to select from. Weinor fabric quality and the manufacturing process are exceptional. Weinor fabrics are made from polyester or acrylic and are solution dyed for superior colour fastness. High-quality pigments are stored in each individual fibre.

The result: especially good colour fastness and high UV resistance. Colours remain lastingly brilliant. This makes Weinor fabrics stand out from products made by other manufacturers, where only the finished yarn is dyed. Thanks to the Teflon fabric coating and state-of-the-art nano technology, the surface is resistant to oil, water, dirt and prevents rot.

Weinor | Trend + RAL colours


Colours and shapes take on different meanings in a natural environment. They serve as warnings, camouflage or courtship.

For us people, colours and shapes also perform another function: they are a source of pleasure! Our houses and patios only really develop their own character when colour is applied, a character that reflects our personal taste.

Design and colour play a significant role in adding character and personalisation to our homes and patios. They serve a functional purpose and bring joy and pleasure to those who live in them. By incorporating colour, living spaces truly come to life and showcase individual tastes and preferences.

Weinor | Tempura + Tempura Quadrata | Instant Heat Infrared Heaters


Maximise your investment. Extend and enjoy comfortable outdoor living all year round through even the coldest months with Weinor’s innovative Tempura and Tempura Quadra heating systems. Simple mount or easy retrofit.

The heater’s infrared rays generate instant heat and a pleasant warmth to the body as soon as the system is switched on. Infrared heat is constant, not reduced, lost or blown away with a breeze - as occurs with gas and electric heaters, resulting in a far more effective and cost saving use of the generated heat. Smallest size, maximum instant retained heat & lowest operating costs. Sort of a no brainer.

Tempura is a stylish round design and the Tempura Quadra offers a more architectural square design.
