This small, but impressive retractable awning will surprise you with how much technological sophistication there is in this compact 125mm flat cassette.

The compact construction with the U-shaped front profile in which the folding arms and awning cover disappear, and an impressive angle of pitch of up to 65 degrees when ceiling mounted make this awning best suited for patios and balconies. Forged knuckle arm joints are an indication of the highest quality build where so many other brands do not use this type of manufacturing. The arms are one of the most important components in overall performance.

Thanks to these advantages you can easily spend many hours relaxing in the shade.
