The Luxaflex Evo MagnaTrack Awning has been engineered and tested in Australia to handle our diverse and unforgiving conditions and is the most technologically advanced straight drop outdoor blind on the market.
The Evo MagnaTrack Awning harnesses the power of Rare Earth Neodymium Magnets within the side channels to hold the fabric in place providing a smooth flat finish with unparalleled strength allowing it to be left down in windy conditions. Making the Evo MagnaTrack awning the perfect addition to outdoor entertaining and alfresco areas to allow you to enjoy your outdoor space while maintaining sun, wind and rain protection as well as light control and privacy all year round.
The Luxaflex Evo MagnaTrack Awning when tested with a 3.5m opening span has been independently tested to withstand wind pressures up to 185kph^ by James Cook University’s Cyclone Testing Station, making it Australia’s strongest, wind tested, Straight Drop awning.
With our patented magnet technology, the Luxaflex Evo MagnaTrack Awning is the only straight drop awning system in Australia that has a self-correcting feature allowing the fabric skin to effortlessly return into the channel should it ever become dislodged - reducing costly service calls. This can happen if the awning is accidently operated with an object underneath the bottom bar or if the awning is operated in very windy conditions which can jam up the fabric. The self-correcting feature can be done quickly and easy by using the awning's remote control.
The magnetic force in the track system allows the fabric to move while under wind pressure as it floats within the channel. After the wind pressure subsides, the magnetic bond of the neodymium magnets will automatically re-tension the fabric back to its original appearance – a world first in functionality which goes far beyond what a standard zipped system can do.
The technology behind the Evo MagnaTrack Awning lies deep within its patented design. The side channels employ the use of Rare Earth Neodymium Magnets in both the side track and the adjustable track insert that hold the fabric. These magnets are the strongest and most powerful magnets commercially available and on an average sized awning, provide over 100kg of magnetic force on each side keeping the fabric on the awning looking beautifully smooth, flat and taut.
*Per average blind drop of 2.4m
The Luxaflex Evo MagnaTrack Awning can accommodate widths up to 6.5 metres and drops of 4 metres and is exclusively available with our premium fibreglass fabric range – Luxaflex Spectra Sunscreen. This fabric range features a sophisticated twill weave with subtly elegant diagonal patterns and is available in a range of contemporary colours to suit all homes.
Awnings such as the Evo MagnaTrack can also create substantial savings on a home’s cooling bill. Considering that up to 87%2 of a home’s heat gain in summer is through the windows, external shading from Evo Awnings can reduce cooling energy costs by up to 60%1 per cent. When combined with Luxaflex Spectra Screen’s ability to eliminate up to 95%3 of heat from solar radiation, the Evo MagnaTrack Awning can bring you long term savings and help you feel comfortable all year round.

Engineered and tested in Australia to specifically handle our diverse and unforgiving conditions all year round. The Luxaflex Evo MagnaTrack Awning (3.5m opening span width) has been independently tested to withstand wind pressures up to 185kph^ by James Cook University’s Cyclone Testing Station, making it Australia’s strongest, wind tested, Straight Drop awning.
^ Report No. TS1166 of James Cook University Cyclone Testing Station, College of Science and Engineering dated 12 March 2020. Despite the Luxaflex Evo MagnaTrack Awning’s performance in high wind loads, it is recommended that all awnings be retracted during wet or high wind conditions. Refer to our manufacturer’s guide for full limitations, width, projection and wind rating information. Performance is dependent on adequate fixing to a solid structure. Tested in accordance with AS 4040.2 with constant wind pressures held for 1 minute, results here.
