Solarzip®Juralco offers specialist exterior drop-down awnings with encapsulated side guides suitable for acrylic awning fabrics, where no option for PVC fabric is possible. Solarzip® drop-down awnings are manufactured with a special high-temperature welded zip that allows the fabric to be encapsulated within the guide at all times, providing limited movement when the wind gusts.

Patented heavy-duty PVC inserts act as movement absorbers, unlike some less sophisticated systems this prevents the fabric from tearing within the track. All this adds up to stable and sturdy shelter from the wind and rain when you are outside. Solarzip® awnings are available with an optional headbox, that will store the screen away neatly when not in use.

Automated option with Nice® tubular motors and optional remote. Solarzip® can also be spring or manually operated through a gearbox and crank handle.
