Wind Load

Alpha Awnings have been tested to comply with a Class 3 level of Wind Resistance under the European standard EN13561: 2009-01. A variety of design options and bottom rail accessories are available to keep awnings secured during windy conditions.

This level of Wind Resistance equates to a rating of ‘6’ on the Beaufort Scale, which is equivalent to a wind speed of 49 km/h. It is recommended that all awnings be retracted in windy conditions.
*Results based on a single storey, brick veneer home on a concrete slab using ducted air-conditioning and equally distributed windows with Alpha Awnings installed with Canvas fabric. Based on independent modelling conducted by White Box Technologies in conjunction with Peter Lyons & Associates June 2013.
