If you’re looking for a retractable awning to enhance your home and handle the weather we have here in Hawaii look no further. We offer one of the most reliabl,e time proven lateral arm awning systems available today. It typically installs in a day and will change your functional home space forever.
Tropical J’s offers the Deluxe lateral arm retractable awning, an awning that was developed in Sweden by EGE Westin AB. This system incorporates the latest advancements including a variable pitch adjustment for the arms and an energy absorbing shoulder.
Hardware is available in White, Sand and Bronze colors.
Standard operation is by smooth German Geiger bevel gears and crank, or by optional Somfy 500 or 600 series motors depending of the size of the unit. Motors can be operated by switch or remote control. Motorized option also allows for wind, rain, and 3D motion sensors, to help you close the awning when it should be closed.
Arms are constructed utilizing double tensioned springs connected to the forearm with stainless steel chain. The torsion bar, front bar, roller tube, wall and hood brackets and arm profiles are all manufactured with powder coated extruded highquality aluminum.
Other cheaper awnings use lighter extrusions for the frame, non stainless springs for the arms or fabrics with less warranty. This leads to premature frame failure, or decreased frame performance over time. When the fabric wears out on these types of systems, the entire system usually needs to be replaced (if it has even made it that far to begin with).
Our installations and systems have been working great in Hawaii for over 20 years and because we are local, we can service your product or parts if it needs repair. It is also not uncommon for us to replace the fabric on one of our awnings when the fabric reaches the end of its life.
