The Alpha M Awning has been engineered and tested in Australia to specifically handle our diverse and unforgiving conditions all year round. Independent testing by James Cook University’s Cyclone Testing Station, in accordance with AS 4040.2, has shown that the Alpha M Awning (3.5m opening span width) is able to withstand pressures up to 185kph*. This makes the Alpha M Awning the strongest Straight Drop awning that has been wind tested in Australia.
* Report No. TS1166 of James Cook University Cyclone Testing Station, College of Science and Engineering dated 12 March 2020.
Despite the Alpha M Awning’s performance in high wind loads, it is recommended that all awnings be retracted during wet or high wind conditions.
Refer to our manufacturer’s guide for full limitations, width, projection and wind rating information.
Performance is dependent on adequate fixing to a solid structure.
Tested in accordance with AS 4040.2 with constant wind pressures held for 1 minute.
