The Dorado comes in one size and combines the easy to use nature of a lightweight awning along with an easy to use air system means you get one of the simplest and easiest to use awnings available. The efficient Air Erect system combines ease of use and simplistic reliability in one great system. The system is simple, making it extremely easy to use but also reliable as there is little to go wrong; a perfect combination. The use of one single air beam means that this awning can be erected in as little as 12 repetitions on the included double action pump. Combine this with the excellent lightweight HydraDore SL fabric means that this awning can easily be erected by one person. The fabric is also very quick to dry making the awning easier to manage and use. Added stability can be gained by the optional storm poles giving you benefit in adverse weather conditions and making this lightweight awning great for use in many different weather conditions. This really is an extremely easy awning to erect, use and live with; the perfect, lightweight air awning.
Air Erect System (AES) The Air Erect System is an, easy to use, air erect system. Simplified to make it easier to use and less to go wrong, the system uses 4 layers for strength and stability. Layer 1: The internal bladder which is the part that you inflate. Layers 2 and 3: Then we have a dual layer protective cover that has PE and polyester covers bonded together, the PE layer of the cover is also reinforced at the stress points giving it extra strength and stability. Layer 4: Finally we have a sleeve which is sewn into the awning. This not only improves the protection around your air tube, as well as the stability of the awning because the tube is held in position better. The Air Erect System has individual air tubes rather than a joined system which makes each tube extremely easy to pump up. It also makes it easier to deflate as each tube defaults instantly by removing the value making it easier and quicker to deflate as no air gets trapped in the system. The use of separate tubes also gives you security against failure. If there is a failure only one tube is affected. The system is also designed to allow you to fix them on site, so there is no need to ruin your break and send the awning away to be repaired. You simply unzip the sleeve to get to the protective cover. This is then unzipped which gives you access to the bladder itself. This bladder can be removed, repaired using a puncture repair kit (we recommend using a professional repair kit as some cheaper kits have sub-standard glue) and then put back in. It also uses an easy to use single way valve for inflation which is simplicity itself; simply push the pump in and you are ready to go, there are no fiddly values or sockets, sheer simplicity and ease of use.
HydroDore SL Fabric An advanced lightweight 75D with a high performance coating giving a hydrostatic head of 3000mm. which is far and above the 1000mm considered fully waterproof ensuring that your awning will not leak and the material is waterproof. The coating gives the material extra protection against the harmful sun's U.V. rays and extends the life of your awning and gives you a high level of water protection. The material is extremely lightweight making it easy to handle, fold and packs away to a small size. It is fast drying as it does not soak up the rain and is easy to clean.
Anti-Weather System (AWS) The anti-weather system is not one item but a host of improvements and updates that gives the awning better weather protection. There are additional weather panels sewn into the canvas at points where the weather could get in. This panel is P.U. coated on both sides and taped on both sides giving you better weather protection. There is additional guttering on external windows with zips, which add extra protection against the rain. All tie back points or pockets that are sewn in are made from 100% waterproof PVC rather than standard webbing material. Standard material can soak water up and eventually lead to leaks, the waterproof PVC simply does not.
