EVO External Awnings
External screens at a glance
Sleek and durable, EVO all-weather screens can maximise the usefulness of balconies and patios by providing protection from solar heat, wind, rain and insects. Choices include side tension channel (STC), where the screens are fully secured down the sides; straight drop, with hold-down straps or locking bolts to secure the base; and cable guide, which uses marine-grade stainless steel cable to tension the fabric.
Fabrics and hardware
Fabrics used for EVO external screens include open-weave mesh, which allows air flow and lets you see the view; canvas, which provides privacy and increased protection; and clear PVC, for an unrestricted view and full protection from wind and rain. To protect mechanisms there are two attractive headbox options.
Screens can be operated manually with a crank or they can also be motorised and controlled with a wall switch or remote control. You can even have a solar-powered motor if you wish. STC screens, which can be used to create a fully-enclosed room with no gaps, have a side tension system that ensures fabric stays taut at all times.
Why choose EVO External Screens?
Heat control and energy efficiency
During summer, EVO screens can reduce the radiant energy and UV passing into the interior. In winter, screens can be retracted to maximise solar heat gain and keep your house warm.
They have been engineered to withstand the harsh New Zealand climate and have been independently tested.
Screens can be deployed to prevent insects from entering the room, making it unnecessary to close doors and windows on hot summer evenings. For absolute protection, choose the side tension channel (STC) option.
A range of external motor solutions, including a solar-powered motor, allow the screens to be operated at the touch of a button or via a wall switch.
