Outdoor living spaces can soothe and relax on contact, as long as users can minimize their contact with damaging sun, biting flies or clouds of mosquitoes. Eclipse Awning Systems, a Middletown, N.Y., awning manufacturer, applies “the ultimate sunblock” by offering shading technologies to cool the burn, erase the squint wrinkles and keep insects from invading personal space.
The Ultimate Eclipse shading system provides a semi-cassette compact design that allows installation flexibility, even for larger frames. The approximately two-inch torsion bar, easy-to-adjust cast shoulders and unique arm design work efficiently with a patented push/pull internal spring design that applies constant tension on the fabric for a clean, smooth look. The Ultimate Eclipse, touted as “the strongest awning available in the industry,” blocks 98 percent of harmful UV rays and comes in more than 200 solution-dyed acrylic fabrics. The Eclipse E-Zip retractable side solar screen fits any opening and is locked into side tracks to prevent the entry (or exit) of pets, flying Frisbees and insects, as well as reducing room temperatures by as much as 20 degrees and eliminating glare.
