Stability & strength

The Dyneema-tape connection used over the elbow joints and arm brackets on Te Ra¯ awnings is 15 times stronger than steel on a weight-for-weight basis. Plus it’s UV, chemical and moisture resistant to provide a durable and yet lightweight material that further improves the stability and tension provided by the awning’s heavy-duty springs.

Awning coverage

The robust retractable arms on a Te Ra¯ awning allow for maximum spans of seven metres in width and are capable of projecting up to four metres out from the building. This very generous coverage requires no posts or other structures for support (base structure allowing), thereby maximising your freedom to enjoy the cover provided and ensuring that the awning presents a clearer visual appearance.


All Te Ra¯ awnings hardware comes in three standard colours: Gravel, Silver and White. This enables different components and accessories to be used across the entire range, further enhancing your ability to choose the awning solution that’s right for you.

Optional extras

Depending on your model there are a range of optional extras to enhance the performance and capability of your awning. This includes a roller valance for additional sun protection, pitch control to better control shade, telescopic arms to increase wind resistance, and rain hoods for improved fabric protection when not in use.

Fabric Options

We have a large range of colours available in fabrics suitable for Te Ra¯ Folding awnings. Check out our website or your nearest dealer for more details.
