How will I operate my awning?
All Patio Awnings are manually operated with a removable crank handle and gearbox as standard. However, many customers prefer to automate their awning with a motor and control system from Somfy, the world leader in the automatic movement of solar protection systems. Automation makes the awning easier to use and more reliable, eliminating wear and tear, which will lengthen it's life.

Powered by Somfy

Somfy offers a wide range of automation options for your awning, ranging from a simple, push button control; one button for 'Up', another for 'Down' and a third in the centre to stop the awning in an intermediate position, to a fully automatic wireless system with sun and wind sensors. The Soliris Sensor RTS will monitor the weather, providing shading when needed and retracting the awning when strong winds are threatening.

What's more, thanks to Somfy's new concept in wireless technology, a simple connection to the mains supply is all that the motor and sensor require, meaning there is no ugly cabling or control boxes to disturb the interior decor or external facade of your home.

If you still need to be convinced, Somfy offer a straightforward five year guarantee on all their products. If any Somfy product, correctly installed, fails within 5 years, they will repair or replace it free of charge.


Motorisation Costs

Standard motorisation for Weinor, Compact Cassette or Budget Non-Cassette is the Somfy motor with built in radio remote control complete with Tellis 1 handset - from 260 (Compact) dependant on awning width (ADD 59.00 for additional handsets or wall mounted wireless switches).

Add for radio controlled sun and wind control 176.00 inc VAT.

The above systems allow for easy wiring without the need for 4-core cables or junction boxes. Hard wired systems are available P.O.A.
