The reason for the prevalence of external shading which is so popular with owners of detached houses and apartments with balconies is that projected awnings provide the opportunity to relax on the patio protected from excessive sunlight and rain, while it also keeps the interior cool. Additionally, in catering establishments and shops, awnings so provide extra advertising space.
Our company uses fabrics manufactured to ISO 9002 standards by Austrian Sattler, which are resistant to UV radiation and fungal decay, ensuring a lifespan of 10-12 years if used properly. The awnings are moved by geared folding arms. Constant tension of the fabric is ensured by built-in springs.
Most of the metal structure of the awnings is made from powder coated aluminium profiles and castings, ensuring a long lifespan for its components. The main supporting element and the bar are made of steel, as they bear most of the load. For the standard type, the inclination of the fabric can be set between 0 to 70 degrees by our expert on istallation. Since 2004, we have been supplying the Sunset version of the Helios type, the crank mechanism of which makes it possible for any user to adjust its inclination with ease between 0 and 35 degrees according to light conditions. Awnings up to 500 cm of width are fitted with 2 folding arms, while models between 501 and 800 cm have 3, and those above 800 cm have 4. Awnings exceeding 700 cm in width include an intermediate support bracket. The standard prices of our awnings include a 20 cm valance and a manual crank drive.
