The Eclipse can be built as a patio or commercial awning, as a roof for glassed or screened enclosure, or to cover a swimming pool.  In manufacturing areas where fumes and head are a problem the Eclipse provides the required ventilation.

The Eclipse Opening Roof may be installed flat, pitched, curved, angular, or used vertically as a privacy screen.

The smooth flowing lines, together with a vast choice of colours and finishes, allows the Eclipse to blend brilliantly with any architectural style.

Heat Control:

Let the light shine in on the lifestyle you deserveIn Winter the slim louvres of the Eclipse can be positioned to catch the sun's natural warmth into rooms to save on energy costs.

In summer these same louvres can then be moved to block direct sunlight to protect the building from unwanted solar heating.

Winter or summer - the Eclipse Opening Roof provides the best of both worlds!

Light Contol

Light Control:

With the simple push of a button, the louvres can be moved to give the desired lighting level into a building.  This natural light illuminates work and living areas while providing savings in power consumption.

In an outdoor area the same push of a button allows you to control the light needed to create the right atmosphere.


During the summer months, a place is often sought that provides shad from the sun's heat as well as cool ventilation.  Enjoy cooling ventilation with the Eclipse as natural convection draws warm air up through the open louvres to give you cooling breezes below.

Even in light rain the louvres can be left partially optn and the water will drain away in the contours of the louvre.

Shade Control:

The Eclipse provides the ultimate control over the amount of shade needed.  The amount of heat and light can be varied for work or relaxation.  For those with sensitive skin, or those concerned about health risks due to sun exposure, the Eclipse is the perfect answer - full light can be enjoyed without direct sunlight.

Shade Control


The louvres rotate from sealed shut to almost 180 degrees by use of a small 112 volt DC motor.  Safe to use and incredibly easy to operate, the motor is powered by either a solar charged battery or a transformer connected to 240 volt main supply.  Multiple switches can be provided to allow control from the different rooms and locations.  Hand held remote controls are available as well as automatic rain sensors that close the louvres when rain commences.  For special projects, control options can be designed for your requirements.


The Eclipse system is comprised of aluminium and 316 stainless steel components which have been designed to provide a high level of corrosion resistance.  The solid extruded aluminium, louvres are powder coated or anodised for years of trouble free service and come with a 10 year guarantee.  The Eclipse system is installed with colour matched guttering, downpipes and support structure of aluminium, steel or timber.

Tested and Approved:

The Eclipse has been tested and certified for use throughout Australia and overseas including cyclone areas.  The aluminium louvres are manufactured to AS186 and AS3902 and powder coated to AS3715.
