The TILT-O-SHADE™ awning features chain driven arms and arm shoulders with an independently adjustable pitch, allowing you to raise or lower the front bar when you want, in a matter of seconds. Since each arm is adjusted individually, the awning can be angled so that one side is higher than the other (for water runoff or more shade on one side of the awning). Before retracting the awning, it is important to have the arms leveled to avoid fabric distortion.
All parts are made from corrosion resistant materials and most are finished with a white powder coating. Each awning is manufactured to the client's specification with custom widths starting from 6'6" wide (in 1" increments) and available with projections of 5'5", 7'0", 8'6", 10'2" and 12'0".
The TILT-O-SHADE™ is not available in the Greater Toronto Area (please refer to another adjustable pitch model, the ADALIA X3M PLUS™). The TILT-O-SHADE™ comes with a 5 year warranty on the frame.
TILT-O-SHADE™ Arm Shoulder A robust aluminum arm shoulder with a loop attachment allows independent pitch adjustment for each arm, as determined by the position of the sun or rainfall. Inclination ranges are from 0° to 45° or from 15° to 60°.
TILT-O-SHADE™ Arm Heavy duty, extruded aluminum arm profiles combined with high strength die-cast joints, powerful springs and rigid stainless steel chain links at the elbows assure fabric tension and system stability at all times. Self-lubricating bronze bushings are incorporated in every part of the arm that moves around a pin.
TILT-O-SHADE™ Fixing Bracket The TILT-O-SHADE™ fixing bracket is designed for maximum security at the point of connection between the arm and front bar.
Front Bar Front lead bar has a modern slim look with specially engineered internal reinforcement, and gives continuity to the fabric top while still adding strength to the overall system. The profile on the right is used for smaller awnings versus the profile on the left which is used for awnings wider than 16' and/or that project 11'8".
Steel Square Bar A strong, galvanized and powder coated 40mm square bar with 2mm walls.
Roller Tube We use a structural galvanized steel roller tube with spring memory to re-bound to its original shape.
Bevel Gear A speedy bevel gear with a 5:1 ratio for quick and easy use. A special feature of this gear is the stopper that prevents the awning from rolling up in the wrong direction.
