Madera Giant

Beyond the limit
Lateral Arms All Awnings

Product Description

It has been Alutex’s distinctive feature to offer year after year the most innovative and challenging solutions for the retractable awning market.

Giant is by its own name the largest lateral arm retractable awning today on the American market and with its 20’ of possible projection it will probably remain as such for many years to come.

Designed to address the most demanding market for features beyond the limit, Giant wants to set the new frontier of the retractable shade limits. Although special structural requirements are a must for this outstanding product, its design is able to maintain the same elegance typical of the products made to last.

Madera Giant is a double square bar lateral arm extra heavy-duty offering the same versatility of any classical retractable lateral arm awning. With its superior structural strength and projections up to 20’ (the largest today on the market), Giant is installed with two brackets per arm (13” high) and an extra center bracket to maintain the alignment of its two back square bars.

Although minor projections (15’ and 16’) can be installed on regular sidings by using the appropriate installation board, reinforced concrete and/or cinder block siding are highly advised for larger projections.

Thanks to its impressive strength Giant’s front clearance can be minimum even with its largest projections (i.e. 2’ on 20’ projection).

Giant aluminum frame is offered in white powder coated finish, stainless steel hardware and chained elbows. Custom color frames are available upon request.

CAUTIONARY AND IMPORTANT OPERATING INFORMATION: Retractable Awnings contain strong springs under tension. Retractable awnings are specifically designed to be retracted under inclement weather conditions and be used primarily for sun protection. They are not designed to withstand high winds, heavy rain or snow. During those times, awnings must be fully retracted to prevent damages not covered by warranty.
