Private residence - Darien, Connecticut
The architect specified three, commercial grade, side by side full cassette lateral folding arm awnings - two units at 12’2” wide x 10’2” projection and one unit at 15’0” wide x 10’2” projection. Each unit was requested with a manual override Somfy RTS Sunea torque sensing motor so that units would always close tightly regardless of any stretch in the fabric. The system frames specified are made entirely of aluminum which is powder coated using the Qualicoat® powder coating process. Also requested were German Flexon brand non rusting stainless steel chains in the arms of the awnings.
Our original contact was from the architect who requested three retractable awnings that would attach to the wall of his client’s home. The architect wanted a contemporary and very “clean” appearance and a product that did not have a valance. The architect also wanted a product where no hardware including roller tubes were visible. A full cassette folding lateral arm awning was thus the perfect choice!
