Alpha M Awning System

The Turnils Alpha M Awning System is a revolutionary outdoor awning, the first in Australia to use a magnetic retention system. With a massive 200kg of pull force, these magnets keep the fabric taut and looking neat inside the channels. Designed and tested right here in Australia to handle our diverse and sometimes unforgiving weather, the Alpha M Awning System is built to last. Independent testing has shown it can withstand wind gusts of up to 185kph, making it the strongest Straight Drop awning ever wind tested in Australia.

The secret to the Alpha M’s strength lies in its clever use of magnets. Neodymium magnets are positioned in both the side channel and the screen guide, providing powerful pulling force on both sides to keep the fabric taut. As you lower, raise, or adjust the awning, the fabric snaps into place with a satisfying push, ensuring a smooth, flat, and wrinkle-free appearance.

The unique design of the side channels allows the fabric to breathe a little during windy conditions. This slight give allows the fabric to relax and then return to full tension once the wind dies down.

The Alpha M Awning System boasts an unmatched tube-in-tube design for superior strength and minimal bending. This design features a 60mm octagonal tube nested within a uniquely shaped 102mm rounded tube. This special engineering allows the awning to hang perfectly straight even at impressive widths of up to 6.5 metres.

No need to call for service if the fabric blows out of position on your Alpha M awning. Simply raise the awning above where the issue occurred and then lower it completely. The powerful magnets will effortlessly guide the Stance Fibreglass Sunscreen fabric back into the channel, pulling it tight and eliminating any creases or folds.

A heavy-duty keder system locks the fabric securely within the side guides. When combined with the patented magnet technology, this creates an incredibly strong awning that’s less likely to develop problems. The core of the keder system is made from flexible PVC and encased in a highly durable Teflon® coated polyester fabric with exceptional tear strength – perfect for handling the harsh Australian climate.

The Alpha M Awning System can handle even slightly out-of-square applications. The side channels allow for 12mm of free-floating movement on either side. For more significant out-of-square situations, a special “donut” insert can be used. This insert adjusts the angle of the fabric as it moves, ensuring it remains straight, tight, and looking great at all times. Adjustments can be made during installation for a perfect fit by sliding the donut in small increments before securing it in place.

For larger out-of-square applications of up to 70mm, a U-Channel can also be used. This option allows for proper fixing and provides a neat, concealed finish.

Two specially designed brushes are located within the opening of the headbox to stop insects, dirt, and debris from getting in and causing problems. These brushes also help to dust the fabric clean as the awning moves, increasing its lifespan. An open roller option is available for situations where the awning will be inset into the ceiling.

The Alpha M Awning System features a specially weighted bottom rail that ensures smooth and consistent operation. This weight helps to balance the fabric within the side channels. The bottom rail allows the awning to be positioned at any point for optimal light and heat control, with minimal movement even in windy weather. It also allows you to extend and retract the awning even when it’s windy. The bottom rail is finished with a soft brush that rests gently on uneven surfaces, reducing light gaps and keeping out insects and debris.

The Alpha M Awning System can be motorised with a Merger motor and paired with the Neo Smart home automation system. This allows you to control your awning from anywhere in the world using a convenient app on your smartphone.

Need some shade for a pool party? Or want to quickly close the awning when the weather turns nasty? The Alpha M Awning System puts control at your fingertips for the ultimate outdoor comfort.

The system also works with the Merger Sun and Wind Sensor, giving you peace of mind. If the wind gets too strong, the sensor will automatically retract the awning. While it is always recommended to retract your awning in windy conditions, this sensor provides an extra layer of protection.

The Alpha M Awning System is designed to seamlessly integrate with the existing range of Alpha awnings. This allows you to create a coordinated look for your home, no matter which style you choose.
