Balcony awning BGM 6 / CGM 5

The discreet classic

No balcony is too small for a cosy spot in the shade. Our balcony awning is the classic sun blind for balconies and smaller seating areas in single-family homes and apartment buildings. It is predominantly suitable for locations where the awning is protected by a ceiling or roof overhang when it is closed. It fits in with any facade’s colour scheme and the valance is very useful when the sun is low. The tried and tested technical solutions and carefully selected materials underpin its reliability. The balcony awning is compact and stylish and fits in discreetly with the balcony.

Reliable, uncomplicated and proven a thousand times over

The balcony awning has two articulated arms with a projection of up to 2.5 metres and comes in two different designs: the BGM 6 and the CGM 5. The difference with the CGM 5 is its extended fabric rod and integrated canopy. The combination bearing for the roller and articulated arm makes the wall or ceiling mounting really easy with just two fixing points on each side. The flexible tilting of the arms can be freely set with great precision up to 60° for wall installations and up to 90° for ceiling mounting.

The balcony awning’s sturdy articulated arms ensure reliable stability and fabric tensioning. The balcony awning is operated manually with a detachable hand crank or via an electric drive.

Width: 1840 mm – 6000 mm
Projection: 1500 mm – 2500 mm
Maximum area: 15 m2
Maximum wind speed: 38 km/h (Wind class 2)

The balcony awning is our classic among open articulated-arm awnings and with its maximum width of 6 m and projection of up to 2.5 m, provides a total shaded area of 12.5 m2. Despite its considerable size, it still looks stylish and uncluttered.

The CGM 5 is the balcony awning’s little sister and has a maximum width of 5 m. It too can be extended up to 2.5 m, thereby providing a maximum shaded area of 12.5 m2. The CGM 5’s special feature is its canopy with extended front rail profile. This protects the fabric optimally against direct rainfall and dirt when it is retracted. The CGM 5 is especially suitable in areas with greater demands for weather protection.


Wall or ceiling mounting

Wall or ceiling mounting

With the combination bearing, the balcony awning is attached at just two fixing points respectively. The combination bearing can be secured to the front-facing side for a wall installation or tilted 90° so it can be secured upside down on the ceiling. The external dimensions of the balcony awning vary depending on the type of installation. When it is closed, the balcony awning installed on the wall has a depth of approx. 235 mm and a height of 180 mm. With the ceiling mounting, the depth is approx. 226 mm and the height 191 mm. These dimensions are valid for models with motor drives.

1. Fabrics

Live better with beautiful fabrics

In addition to protecting from glaring sunlight, prying eyes and keeping the heat in or out, fabrics also diffuse the lighting in the room and are an integral part of the interior design. Everyone is sure to find a shade they like in our richly assorted fabric collection. Multi-coloured, solid colours or striped – the possibilities are endless.

All of Schenker Storen’s carefully selected fabrics are tested brand textiles and have a long service life. For our balcony awning, we offer 100% premium acrylic in different qualities and designs to suit various needs, such as UV-protection and reflection.

2. Colours

Decoration and protection

Match the colour of the frame and all its profiles with your window, facade or furniture. At Schenker Storen there is an almost endless selection of colours to cater for the colour scheme of your choice. Thanks to our in-house powder-coating system, we produce weather-resistant, scratchproof and dirt-repellent products and can therefore guarantee long-lasting colour fastness.

3. Fixed valance

If the sun is a little lower in the sky or you’d like to create a Mediterranean flair with your balcony awning, the fixed valance is the perfect solution. The valance is attached directly to the front rail profile to keep out any unwanted glare or prying eyes.

4. Canopy

If the balcony awning is to keep out the rain as well, an aluminium canopy can be ordered separately. This protects the awning fabric from direct exposure to the weather when it is retracted. The canopy is mounted directly onto the wall and can also be retrofitted. The canopy is powder-coated and fits in perfectly with the overall look of the awning.

5. Types of drive

Crank or smartphone?

Our balcony awning can be adjusted both manually with a hand crank or a motor. On request, the awning can be controlled wirelessly or you can integrate it into a Smart Home system so you can operate it with ease at the push of a button via a central control unit or on your smartphone.
