How to transform even small areas into oases of calm with an awning

Summers are getting warmer and solar protection is more in demand than ever. This is true not only of large outdoor seating areas, but also of small balconies and roof terraces. With special awnings and side screens, you are also able to spend your time here in complete privacy and relax to the full.

But, you are not always lucky enough to be able to enjoy the view from the balcony undisturbed. Often, you have to share it with your immediate neighbours. But that doesn't have to be the case. Because it is also possible to create your own private realm on small balconies and roof terraces. To this end, there are products that will protect you from the wind, sun and prying eyes. Along with other manufacturers, awning specialist markilux offers a large selection.

Privacy protection for private hours
The vertical roller blinds "620" and "625" with "tracfix" system are really practical, for example, and offer a perfectly taut cover or the marquisolette model "740", all from manufacturer markilux. They can also be attached to a side wall or under a balcony as a sun and privacy screen to provide plenty of protection from the wind and prying eyes. The side screen "markilux 790" is also suitable for this purpose, additionally providing protection against a low-lying sun. Attached to a wall, it is quickly extended by means of a handle. For balconies with a sloping roof overhang, it is also available with an angled top edge. In this constellation, it can be combined well with a compact pergola awning or a folding-arm awning.

Awnings for special applications
People also want protection from the heat in smaller outdoor seating areas, and not just the possibility of creating a private retreat. Products with a slimline cover cassette are ideal for this purpose. Installed under the soffit, they are hardly noticeable. Two of the awning manufacturer's models with a stretch effect and particularly long folding arms are particularly unique. They are intended for balconies, narrow openings and roof terraces which are deeper than they are wide. Free-standing systems are also highly suitable for shading small areas as they combine the advantages of an awning with those of a parasol as in the case of the "syncra" model. The awning hangs on a cross-beam supported by two lateral posts, giving you plenty of space under the sunshade. It is fixed permanently to the ground or held in place by ballast boxes that can used as plant beds or as a seat. There is no need to attach it to the wall of the house and the awning simply goes with you the next time you move house.

Convenient thanks to clever technology
With all these options, small outdoor spaces can be protected from wind and weather and also creatively finished off, especially since there is a large range of awning fabrics available. Smart technology controlled by sensors also facilitates hours of relaxation on the balcony. The solar protection unit can be extended and retracted automatically, depending on the weather. And in the evening, it can become really cosy when matching infrared heaters or LED lights that create a pleasant atmosphere are turned on. In this way, even a small oasis of calm can be enjoyed to the full.
