Inflatable Awning One

Developing these inflatable awnings is a project that is close to our hearts. The DNA, concept and inspiration for the products are born from our love of the sea. More specifically the products and kit we use on and in the sea.

These awnings are the Kitesurf Kites we use on the water, reimagined into the ultimate awning for your vehicle.

The abuse kite-surf kites endure dictated the physical appearance and components of these awnings. Purposeful, simple but most importantly, functional.

Aesthetically and structurally we worked hard on the fit and scale while not straying too far from the hymn sheet of why the shape, the material and the structure let itself so well for these products.

The awnings feature kite-surf valves, kite-surf inspired bridle lines, kite-surf bladders, kite surf bags and are sold with kite-surf pumps.

We've borrowed the very best bits and made the products fit for life on the road. 'Self-standing' characteristics for those strike missions when shelter is a must but the campsite isn't an option. Threading the Kador/ bolt strip into an awning rail with inflation a sub minute affair.

We've worked hard to make these awnings 'universal' and are yet to come across a vehicle you can't fit or 'jury rig' them to.

We've stitched, glued and seam-sealed the seams making it virtually impossible for water to penetrate however... water is inherently crafty and might find its way through the product if exposed to water for extended periods.

*These awnings have a central 'strutt' (same as a kitesurf kite) which aids rigidity while also acting as a pitch in the roof. This strutt needs to sit on the van. Please be aware the awning will needed to be either lifted, or let down slightly if the sliding door needs to be opened or closed.

Awning Rails (Universal, Raised, Multirail) The awnings are made to fit our own awning rail extrusions. They are designed to work in harmony with the 'Bolt Rope' (sailing term), or 'Kador Strip' (camping term) on the awning.

The awnings are designed to be pulled into three of the 'Universal Awning Rail Sections' assembled together end to end. When combined, they are the same length as the awning is wide, our 'Raised Awning Rail' as well as our 'Multirail'.
The rails are designed to be glued, stuck, bolted or screwed onto the vehicle depending on the location. Please acquaint yourself with the rail and installation guide on a Volkswagen T5 along with our Awning Rail faqs.

The rails are deburred during our finishing process however, we will not be able to accept returns for bolt ropes ripped or torn while being fitted and rigged onto the awning rail. Please be mindful and careful while pulling the awnings into the track. If you feel the bolt rope pulling out, or snagging on the track please retreat and adjust- we'd suggest you don't pull harder.
