Torsion Square Bar

   
Torsion Square Bar  

Feature

At Perfecta, we exclusively use a 40mm, steel square support bar on all of our units. This bar is galvanized and powder-coated.

Benefit

The purpose of this torsion/square bar is to absorb the “stress” caused by the movement and flex of the arms. This is the piece that actually attaches the awning to your structure and is better known as the “backbone” of the awning. The powder coating helps protect this piece for longevity.

     

Roller Tube

   
Roller Tube  

Feature

The roller tube is used to hold and store the fabric of the awning. As the awning is extended (rolled out), in cooperation with the spring-loaded arms, proper tension is provided to keep the awning tight.

Benefit

Perfecta’s roller tube is made of steel and is galvanized to prevent rust both inside and outside.

     

SUNRISE, TOGA, LITTLE BIG MODELS:

Arm Bracket

   
Arm Bracket  

Feature

The patented tilting shoulder/arm bracket is the core piece of these models. It connects the profile of the arms to the torsion/square bar. These models of Perfecta awnings are fitted with an automatic wind-lock device that prevents the front bar from springing upward.

Benefit

The Perfecta shoulder arm bracket is also where pitch is adjusted using a simple insert and turn system, which is totally self locking. The shoulder arm bracket also allows the entire arm to fold up completely to what is considered the most compact closure profile in the industry. Gusts of wind put an enormous pressure on the arm brackets of every awning. Simultaneously, as the awning extends, it activates the u-shaped wind-lock device. This allows the awning to be lifted into the wind, but applies a stop so the awning cannot rise too far to cause damage.

     

Front Bar Connectors

   
Front Bar Connectors  

Feature

The front bar connector joins the arm profiles to the front bar. Perfecta uses a front bar connector system very similar to the ball and socket of the human shoulder. This allows for maximum strength through a total range of motion.

Benefit

The awning needs to flex and move when wind is involved and that is the front bar connector’s purpose. The force of the wind is absorbed in the front bar connector and is not transferred through the system into the connecting brackets causing structural damage.

     

Retractable Lateral Arms

   
Retractable Lateral Arms

Retractable Lateral Arms
 

Feature

The lateral arms are crucial for every awning’s safety! Therefore, only Perfecta lateral arms are fitted with durable, synthetically-coated steel cables. Perfecta arms are composed of outer profile, inner springs, and cables. All folding arm bearings are fitted with self-lubricating, high-resistance plain bearings and rustproof stainless steel bolts. The new generation of Secureflex arms, when extended, has a closed center joint and modern, round profile design.

Benefit

Perfecta Awning lateral arms keep fabric sag to an absolute minimum due to this increased outward pressure. Up to three individually suspended springs, together with synthetically weather-resistant, coated cables (patented), make for durability and the highest level of safety. This also increases the outward arm pressure.

     

Front Bar

   
Front Bar  

Feature

The front bar connects the fabric to the roller tube and is color coordinated with the rest of the unit. It is a powder-coated, chambered, convex, aluminum tube. When the awning is fully retracted, its convex side fits directly against the fabric that is rolled up on the roller tube.

Benefit

The front bar ensures a complete closure along with a very compact closed profile, which keeps the front portion of the fabric protected underneath the hood.

     

Hood

   
Hood  

Feature

Perfecta uses a one piece, 7” wide, powder-coated aluminum hood. It is the same color as the rest of the unit’s metallic features. It has a slide-in rubber shield on the back and an integrated drain rail and drain spout to help shed water.

Benefit

A stylish hood (optional) protects your awning fabric from soiling when it’s retracted. If the awning can be installed under an outcropping that is at least 12” wide, a hood is not necessary.

Perfecta’s complete closure feature, along with the use of a hood, helps prevent water from getting behind your awning and allows excess water to drain properly. A Perfecta awning can keep your awning fabric cleaner than any other unit found in today’s market.

SUNPITCH MODEL:

Shoulder/Arm Bracket

   
Awning Shoulder Bracket Component  

Feature

The adjustable pitch shoulder/arm bracket is the core piece of this model. It connects the profile of the arms to the torsion/square bar and allows the customer to change the pitch of the awning.

Benefit

MOUNTING BRACKETS:

Wall Mount Bracket

   
Wall Mount Bracket  

Feature

Wall brackets are attached to vertical structures and actually hold and support the awning. Normally they are attached to structures using 3/8” x 4” lag screws into the center of the vertical framework of the structure. Please note, as there is no standard for exterior siding looks and characteristics, there is also no standard mounting system.

Benefit

Perfecta’s well-devised construction system enables you to install your awning almost anywhere. The solid mounting wall brackets permit quick and easy installation, and the elegant shape of the awning perfectly matches every architectural style.

     

Universal Bracket (Soffit Mount)

Universal Bracket (Soffit Mount)  

Feature

Universal brackets are used when wall brackets are not going to be attached to a vertical wall. Lag screws can be driven vertically through the top of the bracket to attach the awning to a horizontal overhang.

Benefit

Universal brackets are powder-coated to match the rest of the unit in color and are made from cast aluminum for maximum strength.

     

Roof Mount Bracket

   
Roof Mount Bracket  

Feature

Roof mount brackets are used to attach awnings to roofs when minimum height requirements cannot be met. They are made of 100% stainless steel to prevent rust and have a mechanism to allow adjustment for the pitch of the roof.

Benefit

Using the roof mount will allow the awning to sit up high enough in these brackets to allow rain to flow underneath the awning into the existing gutter system.

     

Fabric

   
Recacril Logo  

Feature

Compared to an American acrylic fabric, Recacril has a tighter weave and needs less fluorocarbon. The fabric weighs 9 oz per square yard and is made of 100% solution-dyed acrylic.

Benefit

This fabric tends to provide outstanding water resistance and fabric stability.

     

Thread

   
Tenara Logo  

Feature

Perfecta only sews with Tenara (Gortex) thread. It is clear in color and has a coating to keep it flexible and water repellent.

Benefit

Tenara thread is impervious to the UV rays of the sun and has a warranty to last the life of the awning fabric.

   

Stationary Awnings

   
        

Stationary Patio Awnings

Stationary Patio Awnings  

Feature

Perfecta stationary patio awnings create an outdoor room that can be up from Spring through Fall. The pipe frame remains up year round, while the awning fabric is removable and can be stored away.

Benefit

Removing and storing your awning’s fabric prevents exposure to the harsh Winter elements and extends its lifetime.

     

Front Lace Bar

   
Front Lace Bar  

Feature

Perfecta stationary patio awnings feature a Lace Bar attached to the front of the awning.

Benefit

The Front Lace Bar pulls the fabric tight, to prevent unwanted pooling of water. This is an important feature as it prevents damage that can be caused by fabric stretching and sagging.

     

Velcro Rafter Covers

   
Velcro Rafter Covers  

Feature

Perfecta stationary awnings feature Velcro Rafter Covers, rather than ropes and grommets.

Benefit

Velcro Rafter Covers enclose the pipe and create a much cleaner look. They also allow for ease of Spring setup and Fall take-down.

     

Thread

   
Tenara Logo  

Feature

Perfecta only sews with Tenara (Gortex) thread. It is clear in color and has a coating to keep it supple and water repellant.

Benefit

This thread is impervious to the UV rays of the sun and has a warranty to last the life of the awning fabric.

     

Welded Aluminum Frames

Welded Aluminum Frames  

Feature

Welded aluminum frame joints are welded together to create one solid frame. The fabric is stapled directly to this frame with PVC trim used to hide the staples. These frames can additionally be powder-coated for color coordination.

Benefits

Light-weight frames create less stress on a building. They allow for many different styles and shapes and are non-rusting. There are no grommets or ropes, which makes for a cleaner look. In addition, welded awnings provide a much tighter, more professional look, and reduce fabric wear.
