Window awnings

Awnings VMZ/VMB are designed for vertical woodwork.

The awning blind provides optimum protection from overheating while, at the same time providing a view to the outside. Fakro awning blind reflects sun rays before they reach the glass and thus protects against heat build-up on sunny days, providing relief for the eyes and protection from the harmful effects of strong reflected light, which is especially important when working with computers. Chose your Awning system:

Customized VMZ awnings

VMZ awnings are intended for vertical joinery. They are installed outside in windows and doors (terrace and balcony) made of PVC, aluminum or wood. Awnings protect the interior of the room against excessive heating and allow for even distribution of light intensity, improving the comfort of people staying in the room.Customized window awnings


  • Energy saving VM awning blind Reduces energy consumption in air-conditioning devices, thus reducing CO2 emission to the environment. Solar awning blind does not consume electricity from the mains, it is powered by a battery charged with sunlight
  • The inflow of natural light Windows covered with awnings as opposed to external roller shutters allow natural light to flow in. Awnings let through enough light so as not to use additional lighting.
  • Visibility to the outside and ensure privacy Pulled awnings provide visibility to the outside. We can freely observe the surroundings, and at the same time provide a sense of privacy, protecting the interior from outside observers.
  • Improving ergonomicsAwning pulled down improves ergonomic conditions in workplaces. It allows for an even distribution of light intensity, providing our eyes with visual comfort, protecting them against the harmful effects of reflections, especially when working with a computer. In rooms with a pulled awning blind, the eyes do not get tired as in a room without an awning, where the distribution of light intensity is very uneven.
  • Protection against harmful UV radiation The awning blind reduces the penetration of harmful UV radiation into the room. When the awning is pulled down, it helps to protect objects and materials in the interior from harmful UV radiation, which causes their discoloration.
  • Protection against insects The closed electric awning on the vertical window, in addition to protecting against heating the room, fulfills the function mosquito nets. When the window is open, the rolled-out awning protects the interior against insects.

The VMZ awning blind is made of a durable, weather-resistant fabric made of glass fibers coated with PVC. The fabric is rolled on a shaft with a motor and placed in a cassette made of aluminum profiles mounted to the window or external lining recess. A zipper tape is embedded in the edges of the fabric, which maintains the appropriate tension between the guides and prevents the fabric from falling out of the guides. Such a combination of fabric and profile increases its resistance to wind and prevents insects from entering the interior. This solution can withstand wind speeds of up to 120 km/h and crosswinds of up to 220 km/h.

Awning profiles and awning blinds are available in three colors (white, gray and brown). On request, in any color from the RAL palette. There are 16 types of materials to choose from: (6 with a 10% clearance, 2 with a 1% clearance and 8 with a 6% clearance).FAKRO electric awnings

How to measure
Specifying the size of the window awning is necessary when placing the order. So that it could be done properly, we have prepared a special tab; all the necessary tips are here measuring.

How to choose a color
Window awnings are installed on vertical windows, on their outer side. Therefore, their color should be matched to the color of the facade and/or window frames. This will ensure a harmonious and aesthetic appearance of the entire building. External covers should blend in nicely with the overall style without the effect of, for example, color accents.

How to assemble
The instructions for the assembly of window awnings can be found here Assembly instructions. However, in the case of the exterior shields, the installation of the watro should be entrusted to a professional team. Especially when ordering larger or larger awnings.

How to clean
It is also worth entrusting the cleaning of window awnings to a team of professionals, especially as they often cover the windows on the first floor. When cleaning independently, a high-pressure cleaner is usually used, which can thoroughly remove the dirt.
