No need for constant upkeep!
The Sol-Lux Awning is very easy to maintain. When the awning is closed, it is completely enclosed inside of the awning cassette so there is no need to worry about dust or water degrading the internal hardware. Also, the exterior of the cassette is made from aluminum for rigidity and durabiity. The fabrics for the awning are acrylic which requires minimal upkeep furthering the ease of maintaining the awning.
The cassette itself is powder coated so it is very rugged and will withstand any type of weather or climate. Powder coating is also abrasion resistant to prevent any scratching or markings from any debris or extreme weather like hail.
Acrylic fabrics are ideal for outdoor canopies as they require minimal upkeep to prevent mold, mildew or deterioration. Acrylic fabric color cannot be removed or washed out as the color pigment is actually in the threading so the color runs very deep into the fabric. Acrylic fabrics won’t crack, peel or harden and are very strong and durable.
Because the Sol-Lux has a Bluetooth antenna, you can access and control the awning remotely. This also works for updates to the Sol-Lux mobile app and the awning firmware. The Sol-Lux app will download any updates and when connected to the awning, will automatically push updates to the awning so there is no need to access any internal hardware when these updates become available.
The Sol-Lux awning was designed to require very minimal upkeep and maintenance. By completely enclosing all the vital components and the fabric when the lead rail retracts, we are preventing any regular maintenance needed on the internal hardware. The awning cassette is comprised of aluminum and then is powder coated offering rigidity and abrasion resistance while the awning is mounted above your windows. Finally, because it is solar powered, you do not have to worry about electrical connectivity and wiring or recharging batteries as this is all done by the sun and our solar panel!
