West Leederville

The owner of this West Leederville residence desired a retractable shade solution for their pool area that would emphasise aesthetics, functionality, and protection.


Specific requirements included a fully retractable automated awning system with wind sensors and a design to complement the home’s contemporary design. Soltex proposed the installation of a tailored Weinor Kubata retractable Folding Arm Awning system with the Somfy 3D motion sensor for added convenience. The Weinor Kubata Folding Arm Awning’s clean and square design matched the residence’s modern architecture, and our client selected a fabric style and colour to complement their aesthetic preference. Somfy’s motion sensor feature was recommended to ensure peace of mind and protection by automatically retracting the awning during unsafe wind conditions.

The Weinor Kubata Folding Arm Awning transformed our client’s poolside area into a stylish outdoor retreat that seamlessly integrates with their home. The client expressed immense satisfaction with the automated and wind-sensitive features that have enhanced the usability of their pool area. Soltex’s after-sales support also ensures ongoing performance and maintenance of their Folding Arm Awning.
