Lateral Arm Canopies and Awnings

By February 22, 2018 No Comments

Lateral Arm Canopies and AwningsLateral Arm canopies offer the perfect blend of form and function, incorporating both style and precision into the cassette awning. These commercial retractable awnings leverage a state-of-the-art design and the highest quality materials to help commercial property owners make the most out of their outdoor spaces.

When extended, the Lateral Arm awning provides reliable sun and light rain protection.  When retracted, it integrates fully with the architecture without compromising the clean aesthetic lines of your property.  Featuring a weather-tight cassette enclosure, dependable motorized system, and top-quality fabrics, the Lateral Arm retractable canopy provides long-lasting, reliable benefits.

A Look Inside: The Lateral Arm Canopy Design

As a full cassette design, the Lateral Arm canopy lives inside an enclosure when retracted.  This casing uses a unique design to create watertight protection and a silent closure.  It mounts on the wall of your building, and the motor feature allows you to operate the awning with ease.

A unique feature of the Lateral Arm design is its dynamic arm and tilt, which works to minimize contact-ware when the unit is opening and closing, to protect the traction mechanism, and to eliminate any potential for fabric tears during operation.  Based on the needs of the project, the pitch adjustment of the Lateral Arm canopy is available up to 40°, and the canopy includes a micrometric pitch regulation feature that simplifies the installation process.

Wind and sun sensors can be incorporated into the canopy design, providing the simplest possible operation while also offering a layer of protection for the unit if the wind were to pick up unexpectedly.

Your property is unique and our design/build process is, too.  From city permitting to the limitations of your space, we understand that your retractable canopy project must adhere to specific requirements.  At Retractable Structures, we are dedicating to manufacturing high-quality commercial products that are built to last.
