The S2000 Pivot Arm Awning is a simple but incredibly effective way to block out heat and control indoor light. The S2000 (System 2000) Pivot Arm has the flexibility for the easiest and best installation on to weatherboard and clad homes. This awning uses the ‘S2000’ style headbox (hooding) which allows selection from a vast range of standard colours.
Like the S2000 Automatic, this awning has genuinely stood the test of time – remaining simple, reliable and incredibly functional.
Easily the most flexible awning on the market with regards to the operation type. You can operate your S2000 Pivot Arm Awning using any the following mechanisms:
The many types of operation available allow installation on first, second or even over third-storey windows. Installing a pivot arm awning higher than a two-storey dwelling requires site-specific assessment. Contact your nearest Covered dealer today, to get expert advice and recommendations.
Size is important, but when able to get the same results for less money, most people sit up and listen. The S2000 Pivot Arm awning will provide the same level of shading and cooling of its larger and sturdier relatives – like the Heavy Duty Robusta Pivot Arm Awning. With a slightly lower level of resilience against wind and a maximum warrantable width of 4200mm.
As a rule, all pivot arm awnings’ can project by half of the ‘drop’ of the awning. For example, take a window that is 1800mm high will have 900mm arms. As a result, when the awning is half-way down, the arms will project away from the window by ~900mm. With arms at 90º to the walls, the S2000 Pivot Arm Awning allows for a generous flow of air into open windows and prevents heat build-up between the material and your home. Compare this to a straight drop awning that sits close to the window.
A straight drop awning does not allow for the recirculation and cooling of air like a pivot arm. As a result, the S2000 Pivot Arm awning is far more effective than a regular external straight drop awning. In summary, when mounted over a window, pivot arm awnings provide a higher level of heat defence compared to a straight drop awning.
The spring-loaded arms keep the awning under constant tension and help maintain a taught, neat look for your material over its lifetime. They will allow for mild to moderately-windy conditions, but if you are located in a high-wind area, please discuss the suitability of the S2000 over a Robusta Pivot arm awning with your Covered sales assistant.
