The awning blind ensures up to 8 times more effective protection against overheating when compared with internal blinds.

  • Effective reduction of heat from the sun
  • Installed on the outside of the window
  • Protection from excessive brightness, whilst maintaining good overall levels of natural light
  • Protection from harmful uv radiation
  • Protection from harmful light reflection, especially important when working with computers
  • Positioned outside, it does not reduce the glazing surface
  • Effective shading of the interior even when the window is ajar
  • When used in rainy weather, reduces noise of hailstones and rainfall


The awning blind is made of durable, weather- resistant fibre glass fabric.

The fabric is roller mounted with motor fitted inside an aluminium casing which is installed at the top of the window. In the cloth’s edges, there is a special tape that maintains appropriate fabric tension between the guides and prevents the fabric falling out of the guides. Such fabric and profile joining increases its resistance to wind. This solution withstands wind gusts of up to 120km/h and side wind speed of up to 220km/h.
