Acmeda – Folding Arm Awnings – Mornington
The Acmeda SHAN full cassette system was introduced into the Australian market in 2014 and winner of a Red Dot design award. Its unique design is complementary with the design of modern homes and town houses, integrating seamlessly with the building both in the open and closed position.
The SHAN features cutting edge European design. Widths of up to 10 meters are possible with an impressive 4-meter projection also a feature. All Acmeda Folding Arm Awning systems are independently tested by TUV Rheinland who are renowned in the field of safety certification. These systems are tested to withstand winds up to 49 km/h depending on the overall size of the individual awning as in the table below.
Arm Tension, which is critical to the durability of the Awning is provided by the unique Dynamic Arm Torsion (DAT) system that is linked together by Teflon Coated Marine Grade stainless-steel chain. The awning arms open and close without touching the fabric which is key to lengthening the life of the Fabric. As always we recommend only Dickson Acrylic Fabircs for your Folding Arm Awning.
Both systems share the same components with the key difference being the ability of the STEIN to pitch down almost vertically and act like a traditional awning. Both systems can be motorised or manually operated with a`hand held crank.

Available as shown in grey and also available in white and black as standard colours.
The Turnils open style range was redesigned and launched in Australia in 2014 as the Turnils Sirocco FA40 series. Totally redesigned with Dyneema technology inside the awning arms adding to the high strenght, high fabric tension meaning your awning fabric is as tight and flat as possible. The system is modular in design and comes in 5 different versions catering for almost any situation.
The basic model, featured in the picture below is the Sirocco FA42.
All Turnils Folding Arm Awnings are tested for resistance for wind using the Beaufort Scale and European Standard EN 13651. The table below describes the breakdown of wind ratings compared to the individual systems models and sizes.
In addition to these design enhancements the FA44 also offers the option of a variable length valance in the front bar of the awning.
This system is capable of narrow widths down to 1332mm. Ideal for small courtyard areas where space is at a premium.
This unique system has inverted arm geometry allowing for added height clearance from the floor to the bottom of the awning arm.
This is particularly useful in situations of limited space to mount the awning as often happens above patio doorways.
In addition to this quite practical feature, the FA46 is quite aesthetically unique with the addition of the “Fabric Beam” creating a beautiful contour over the fabric. As with the FA44 a roller front valance can be added to this awning to create quite a unique model!
The FA48 has a maximum width of 7 meters and a projection of 3.5 meters. It is also available in both Manual operation and Motorised. The full suite of Becker Automation products is available for the system.
