Patio awnings

Characteristics of patio awnings

Terrace awnings are a group of external window covers, mounted over windows, balcony windows or terraces. Their main task is to shade the rooms and the space of the balcony/terrace; thus protecting them from heating by creating a shaded area.

Terrace awnings have been designed so that their material creates a shadow over the window, balcony or terrace. The fabrics from which they are made are resistant mainly to sunlight and rain, so that they can retain their aesthetics as long as possible. Manufacturers of patio awnings use special acrylic, waterproof acrylic and PVC-coated polyester fabrics for this purpose. The structure of the awning must be resistant to gusts of wind, therefore the profiles used here are thicker; they are powder painted so that they are resistant to rust.

Features of patio awnings

The benefits of using patio awnings:
Protection against overheating - interior, balcony and/or terrace. The unfolded awning fabric creates a shaded area. Thus, the interior of the house also remains shaded; it is cool and pleasant in it. Additionally, shade is created on the balcony and/or terrace. On summer days or in the afternoons, it's nice to spend time outside. Unfortunately, at high temperatures it becomes unpleasant and even dangerous. The assembly of the terrace awning allows you to comfortably enjoy the beautiful summer weather. As the awnings in the Knall online store are made to measure, eg choosing a width of 3m, 4m, 5m or 6m, they can be installed above windows, over balconies in a block or over terraces. This type of cover is also often used in restaurants or cafes, in popular outdoor gardens.
Sunlight - creating a shadow outside does not mean dark inside. The house/apartment is pleasantly dim and cool, but without the need to turn on the artificial light. Natural light makes it function better and does not have a negative effect on eyesight. The awning allows you to enjoy it during sunny days without feeling unpleasant heat.
Relaxation - rest in the afternoon and at the weekend. The awning material allows you to create a shaded space anywhere. An afternoon spent with a book or surrounded by friends is the most pleasant if we ensure a pleasant temperature on a hot day. Spring and summer is a time when you want to spend as much time outdoors as possible. The prevailing heat can very effectively and quickly prevent this. Thanks to the patio awning, you can relax in a pleasant shade without any obstacles. Thanks to the high-quality construction, the material is taut and is not disturbed by gusts of wind.
Aesthetics - the fabric of patio awnings is resistant to fading, so it will not lose its aesthetics under the influence of sunlight. The colors of the materials are very diverse; always in stripes. The designs of lashing straps are very different - from softer joints, such as cream and beige, to more expressive ones, such as using red. Combinations of black, gray or white are also available. The fabric is also rainproof to some extent. It should not be left unfolded in heavy rainfall, but a gentle, short-term rain will not harm it. The material must be dry before being rolled up.

Terrace awnings - cleaning and maintenance

Keeping patio awnings clean is not complicated. We remove contamination in the form of leaves or twigs on a regular basis with an ordinary brush. At the end of the season, it is worth removing larger dirt from the material with warm water with the addition of a gentle cleaning agent, which then needs to be rinsed thoroughly. We use a sponge or cloth for cleaning. During cleaning, disassemble the fabric and then let it dry completely.

The technical condition of the structure should be checked once in a while and its movable elements, eg side guides, should be lubricated regularly.

Additional information

How to measure
The instruction that facilitates the measurement of the terrace awnings to be prepared is available heremeasuring. Performing such a measurement on your own should not cause any difficulties, and the advantage is an awning ideally suited to the terrace and therefore it covers it very well.

How to choose a color
The terrace awnings form a kind of canopy over the terrace. Their material can be smooth or decorated with characteristic decorative stripes. The choice depends on the color of the facade. Sometimes it also depends on the style of the house. In more modern designs, awnings have a uniform color, harmonizing with the façade. On the other hand, for example, in houses located on plots near the city, more colorful awnings, decorated with stripes, are used.

How to assemble
The assembly instructions for the products can be found hereAssembly instructions. Assembly is facilitated by the use of a support beam. For larger awnings, however, it is better to entrust the assembly of the awning to a professional company due to their weight.

How to clean
Cleaning the awnings is easy. During the season, you can periodically remove dirt such as leaves or small twigs and deposited dust with a brush on a long stick. For more thorough cleaning, you can disassemble the fabric and clean it wet - unfold and clean with a soft sponge dipped in lukewarm water with the addition of a small amount of delicate detergent. Allow to dry completely.
