A Design-LED




TURNILS is backing its unique shade system as the optimum in design-led solutions. Engineered and manufactured in Sweden, Sirocco Folding Arm Awnings by Turnils comprise a premium range of folding arm awnings with a choice of customised features.

The range is offered in three standard hardware colours – Black, Silver and White – across five different models:

1.FA42 Classic
This is the standard model in the Sirocco series, representing the latest in technology and European engineering for folding arm awnings.

2.FA44 Design
With European styling, this model features pressure die-cast design end brackets for a premium finish and sleek style.

3.FA45 Cross-Over
While conventional folding arm awning design limits the awning projection to less than the awning width, thanks to clever cross-over arms, the FA45 Cross-Over awning enables a larger projection on a narrow width awning.

4.FA46 Fabric-Beam
This model features a support beam across the width of the awning that lifts the fabric, creating an awning with good clearance under the inner part of the arm, for example to allow space for opening doors.

5.FA48 Semi-Cassette
Featuring a sleek, semi-cassette design that hides the awning when retracted, this semi-cassette awning provides superior fabric protection and a streamlined finish.

Additional upgrade features include roller valance, pitch control, hood, telescopic support, colour-matched crank handles and a range of motorisation options.  Sirocco awnings can be installed directly on to the wall or under eaves; flexible roof brackets are also available.

Projections are available up to 4 metres and widths start from as narrow as 1.332 metres – up to 7 metres wide for a single awning, or cover widths up to 11 metres with linked awnings.

Tested to European wind classification standard EN 13651, Sirocco folding arm awnings are wind-rated up to Class 3 – for wind speeds up to 49km/h – which is equivalent to 6 on the Beaufort scale.
