Exterior window awnings stop heat from entering a home. In contrast, indoor blinds are designed to prevent the further spread of heat throughout your home after it’s already come inside.
Two basic types of exterior window awnings are available:
Gravity fed systems: for windows and openings with very little wind and weather exposure, where the awning fabric is held in position by means of a weighted base bar
Tensioned systems: for high wind conditions, guide tracks and the markilux tracfix system keep the fabric cover taut, even in high winds.
Often motorised for a ‘set and forget’ capability with optional wind and sun sensors, exterior window awnings allow you to maintain your views to the outside with certain fabrics.
You can choose between vertical awnings, drop-arm window awnings, markisolette and triangular shading.
