Cassette awning KGM 5 / KGM 6

The resistant lightweight

The cassette awning is our answer for the all-round protection of fabric and technology on terraces and balconies. The elliptical, timeless cassette completely protects the fabric from the effects of the rain, wind and dirt when it is closed. When extended, it really shows off the fabric and discreetly blends in with the look of the facade so effortlessly thanks to its two-point mounting. It is ideal for small to medium-sized terraces in single-family homes and apartment buildings – and the colour can be adapted to suit individual wishes.

The streamlined sun blind with amazing all-round protection

Our cassette awning is a self-supporting, completely enclosed aluminium cassette with different external dimensions. The sturdy articulated arms made from extruded aluminium support a projection of up to four metres and are technically coordinated with the roller, ensuring optimum fabric tension and winding at all times. Depending on the dimensions and substrate, the cassette awning comes with two differently sized mounting brackets for a secure installation. The colour of these cast aluminium brackets matches the rest of the cassette awning helping them blend discreetly into the background. The cassette, brackets and tensioned fabric made from premium acrylic are all engineered in such a way as to ensure a very long service life. The flexible tilting mechanism can be freely set with great precision up to 90° for ceiling mounting and up to 60° for wall installations. The cassette awning can be operated manually with a detachable hand crank made from galvanised steel, or via an electric drive.

1. Fabrics

Live better with beautiful fabrics

The primary role of fabrics is a practical one: to provide sun, glare and sight protection. But they also create unique lighting in the room and form an integral part of the interior design. All of Schenker Storen’s carefully selected fabrics are tested brand textiles and have a long service life. For our cassette 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. LED spot lighting

The sophisticated LED spot lighting is ingeniously built into the cassette, which means it can also be used when it is closed. The spotlights can be easily dimmed to create a cosy setting while casting a very flattering light over the facade and outdoor area.

4. Types of drive

Crank or smartphone?

Our cassette 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.
