Extend and retract you awning or solar screen with the turn of a handle, push of a button or have it completely control itself with automated sensors – it is that simple. Your awning can be extended fully, partially or completely retracted depending on how much sun you want or shade you need.
The gears used in our awnings are designed by Geiger, the leading producer of mechanical drive systems for awnings and solar screens. Geiger proudly places a great emphasis on the highest standard of quality, and can ensure this based on their “100% made by Geiger” guarantee, which means that every component in their gears are produced by them: every nut, bolt and screw is manufactured in-house at Geiger.
The patented round eye combined with the spherical hook makes awning simple and smooth to operate, does not cause abrasion, and can be used at any angle – not just directly below. The advantage of the bevel gear design is that the entire circumference of the gear is used to turn the awning, rather than a single shaft which is used on cheaper gears. All Bevel gears have an internal end stop so the awning can not be rolled in backwards.
