Dometic Premium Awning for Roof-Top Installation

EMSDETTEN, GERMANY--(Marketwired - Jun 27, 2014) - At long last, the comforts of the support-leg free Dometic Premium Awning are also available for the owners of panel vans or motorhomes with curved roof edges. Comfort specialist Dometic has added a roof-mount version to its successful awning range. The new model neatly fits the van types Volkswagen T5, Fiat Ducato, Citroën Jumper, Peugeot Boxer and Ford Transit, and many other vehicles where side wall mounting used to be difficult or impossible. Special installation rails and matching adapters guarantee a firm hold and a perfect finish.

The latest version of the Dometic Premium Awning offers all the benefits the wall-mount awnings - the most notable being the absence of inconvenient support legs so the full area in front of the vehicle can be used. The electric awning extends within seconds at the touch of a button. No need to wind it manually, and no need for time-consuming tying-down and anchoring either. A reliable sensor keeps an eye on the wind speed and retracts the awning automatically to prevent the awning from damage. The soft-closure function, which guarantees smooth and gentle closing of the top cover of the awning housing, also prevents damage. The top cover also integrates a cleaning brush that keeps dirt out to protect the awning mechanics. The Back Impulse function tightens the awning cloth after being extended, which ensures smooth operation and effective sun protection.

When the awning is to be used for a longer time the sensor-controlled automatic retracting system can be disabled. In this case Dometic recommends securing the awning with the newly developed Dometic WeatherKit, which reliably ties the awning down to make a stylish and practical sun shade.
