Lateral Arms - Madera
Madera is an elegant retractable awning, designed to provide shade at your command. It opens and closes simply extending and retracting its arms, either by a hand crank, an electrical motor, or by sophisticated electronic devices promptly responding to the sun and/or the wind.
When totally retracted, Madera discreetly rests within a few inches from the wall, eliminating any need for winter storage. When extended, either partially or totally, Madera displays the beauty of its fabric. Hundreds of vivid patterns, specially designed to dress up your home.
Madera’s front bar is designed with a lower element to increase its inertia to the most demanding flection deformation.
Madera’s pitch adjustment carries a lifetime warranty and responds to arm projections up to 13’.
Built only with the finest materials, Madera employs electrostatic powder coated epoxy paint on all of its casting, brackets and joints to secure the most durable and yet elegant finishes against chipping and cracking.
Where others have caved in to the use of deformable aluminum for the back structural bar, Alutex employs high gauge galvanized steel further protected by a film of epoxy finish.
Engineered to satisfy the most stringent mechanical requirements, Madera’s arms are tested to last twice the expected life span commonly referred to by the industry and the exclusive design of their self-locking elbows provides excellent tension to the fabric.
The tension of Madera’s arms is maintained through double stainless steel cables shielded by UV resistant coating for even higher protection.
