Awnings employing guide track systems score highly by virtue of their large dimensions and wind stability

These days modern houses often have wide windows facing the garden with spacious patios running up to them. They offer the opportunity to create an al fresco living area in the garden. These large solar protection requirements are best served by awnings in which the cover runs in and out along lateral guide tracks. They offer plenty of shade and are extremely stable as well.

Large patios are currently in fashion. New private homes, these days, call for incredibly wide, floor-reaching windows. They open up the view of the garden and invite those indoors to make visual contact with the outside in summer.As a consequence patio and living area become one. And, as one would like to feel just as much at home outside on the patio as inside the house, room for spacious seating areas has to be found.

Awnings can be found to suit every façade
However, fascia-wide windows and large patios also take a lot of shading to be fully protected against the sun's rays. For this purpose, awnings in which the cover runs in and out along lateral guide tracks are best suited. They are available, for example, as underglass awnings for open glass canopies. In this case the awning is fitted underneath a glass roof. Or it is the type of model whereby a small cassette, which protects the cover, is fitted directly to the wall of the house. In this case the guide tracks rest on two slender posts at the front. In particular, walls made of less substantial building materials will benefit from this approach as this reduces the load acting on the wall. Free-standing, four-post systems, on the other hand, can be positioned at will anywhere in an open area. But what unites all these models is that they can offer airy shade over a width of at least six metres. The supporting posts make the awnings extremely stable in wind - depending on the manufacturer up to Beaufort force six. In the case of some awnings, including those from markilux, the sun protection cover is held firmly in the lateral guide tracks. That, too, makes them less susceptible to the effects of wind.

Solar protection with a cosy, domestic feel
Models in a typical pergola style, in which one or more of the posts can be adjusted in height, are ideally suited for use in rain, as well. as rain will run effortlessly off of the steeply inclined cover surface. Then it would be no problem to remain seated undernesth the awning during a short shower.Practical, above all, are additional side screens or roller blinds which offer some protection against the wind and increased privacy. They create an enclosed area and a relaxing space in the open air, which one can shape in line with one's own personal preferences. Smart LED spotlights or lighting strips and radiant heaters are comfort-enhancing extras, which, in combination with this awning model, further add to the feeling of a relaxed, al fresco living experience.
