Planning your outdoor living and deciding which is the best option for your home can get a little confusing. So, we’ve put together the most commonly asked questions from clients, however if you can’t find the information you require please contact us and we can help answer any other queries.
The ‘Eclipse’ louvers are a one piece aluminium extrusion which are then powder coated for a colour finish.
Each louver has stainless steel pins at each end – the stainless steel combined with the aluminium gives a perfect, durable, long term finish. This is the difference – quality & durability.
As there are both aluminium & stainless steel materials incorporated within the louvers, this can make our outdoor living areas slightly more expensive.
Yes, there is no need to move inside if the rain sets in. Once the louvers shut, they lock into each other and create a water barrier, preventing water dripping between the louvers.
The louvers are also constructed with a fall to direct the water away into the gutters & prevent it building up.
The water carrying capacity of the louvre is exceptional:- the design of the louver extrusion provides a deep trough to carry away rainwater. There is also a splash-back gutter cavity within the louvre that stops capillary action when the louvres are overlapped in the closed position.
Yes generally any custom angle can be provided for to a single side of a bay. This will enable you to follow your garden bed, retaining wall or provide a unique contrast for your outdoor living area.
No. We include all necessary electrical within our description of works as standard as completed by an licenced electrician.
A ‘switch plate’ the size of your standard home light switch is fixed to your wall, generally next to your current light switch in a location where you can see the louvers.
The switch plate enables you to operate each bay of louvers together or independently, along with standard functions including the rain sensor.
A remote control option is also available.
A transformer is hard wired by our licenced electrician into your homes power supply. This in turn operates a ‘Weather Control Unit’ which is housed either within your eave line or externally on the wall in a weather proof box.
This powers a stainless steel, 12 volt motor to each bay.
You can also upgrade your opening roof patio system so you can operate it via your smartphone. Not only can you operate the Eclipse louvers but also all of your patio cover accessories on the one device. Fans, Heatstrips, lighting, blinds etc….how cool!
No. The ‘Eclipse’ louvred patio cover system can only be operated via remote control or the electronic switch plate.
