Classic. Elegant. Timeless. Whether for the terrace or the balcony, when it comes to shading your favourite place, folding arm awnings are indispensable.
Thereby the folding-arm awnings belong to the absolute classics among the awnings and most people automatically associate a folding-arm awning under the broad term of awnings. the folding-arm awning owes its name to its intelligent mechanical folding technology, in which the awning cover is rolled out and tensioned by two or more folding arms.
Based on the design, a distinction is made between open folding-arm awnings, semi-cassette and cassette awnings.
When the awning is retracted, the cassette completely encloses the awning cover and the technology and protects them perfectly from wind and weather. Our premium cassette awnings are produced in Germany - and are in demand worldwide. As a premium manufacturer, we offer you awnings of the best possible quality, with sophisticated technology and an inimitable design.

How does a folding-arm awning work?
A folding-arm awning has two or more folding arms, a roller tube and a front profile. A fabric cover is stretched between the roller tube and the front profile with the help of the folding arms. These can be retracted and extended by means of an electric drive or winding handle. A valance often forms the end of very classic models.
