Twister Sail Awning

THE MODERN ANSWER TO YESTERDAY'S AWNING

The Twister Sail hand-operated awning defies the rules for traditional awnings with its minimalist design.

Able to cover close to a 20‘ x 20‘ area, the Twister Sail can also lay horizontal unlike folding-arm awnings.

UNIQUE FEATURES
  • Low-load attachment to the structure or building

  • Feather touch operation

  • High wind resistance

  • Modern, minimalist lines

  • Can operate flat or at 8° for rain run-off

  • Translucent, rain-proof fabric

SPECIFICATIONS

MAXIMUM SIZE:

236" wide (19.6 ft)
226" draw length (18.8 ft)

TWISTER ADVANTAGES:

  • Can be mounted on almost any surface - unlike with "folding arm" awnings, almost no leverage forces are exerted on the walls.

  • Very light, quick and easy to install.

  • The fabric membrane is absolutely waterproof. Water runs off the membrane automatically when suspended at an inclination of 8 or more degrees meaning that no water pockets can build up.

  • The fabric sail does not necessarily have to be inclined. The system works from 0 to 90 degrees. From an angle of 25 degrees or more, a gear unit is necessary.

  • The fabric membrane has excellent self-cleaning properties and offers High UV Protection of UPF 50+.

  • Extensive range of accessories available.

  • System is extremely easy to operate.

  • Ample system draw length allowing system to extend over pools and spas.

  • Any leaves or debris roll off of the front of the roll as it is rolled up, keeping the fabric clean.

OPTIONS

Elbowed Columns - for areas with railings and low walls to allow sail to extend further out and increase shaded area

Column with Crank Inclination Adjustment - for lowering a corner or two, to direct rain flow, or for blocking low sun

Screw Foundation for Column(s) - allows for eased column installation into the ground, no digging, no concrete required

Double Column for Linked Systems - one column with two pulleys for adjacent systems

Custom Printing on Fabric - logo display for restaurants and shops

Specifications

BALCONY AND TERRACE

A comfortable space can be achieved on any sunny balcony or terrace with the installation of a Twister Sail. Unlike “shade triangles“ and other permanent solutions, this hand-operated sail can be easily retracted if you decide you want to get a little sun. Custom tension columns can allow the sail to run over the railing for a completely shaded balcony.

GARDEN AND YARD

Turn your garden into a shaded oasis any time of day with the addition of the Twister Sail. The silent operation of the system won't disturb the peace and serenity of your secluded garden. The Twister Sail can also add privacy from surrounding neighbors that have windows looking down into your yard.

DECK AND STRUCTURES

Umbrellas tend to offer limited deck shade and as the sun moves you will be moving your chair to stay shaded under them. Twister Sail offers shaded square footage large enough so you don't feel sun-chased on your chaise. Also the area under the shaded canopy stays bright enough to read by. It can even add an extra level of shade to existing structures or it can easily be a way to expand shade off of that structure.

YACHT AND MARINA

The Twister Sail turns the sundeck on your yacht into a cool, breezy place to relax. Since this awning is perfectly power-free, there is no wiring to worry about. Also the low-load system attachment allows it to operate from the tower, arch, or upper deck of the vessel. Custom tension columns are available.

RESTAURANTS AND HOSPITALITY

The Twister Sail is perfect for shading your customers or guests and can be more practical and flexible than other shade options. Custom printed logos on the shade are no problem if you want to advertise with your Twister Sail.

UNIQUE AND FLEXIBLE

Whether it is for a treehouse or a stationary mobile home the flexibility of the Twister Sail keeps your options open (and well shaded). No other awning system provides this much shade and flexibility.
