A neat solution for yet another windy location up on Urbanisation La Sella near Pedreguer!
Having glazed in their terrace with glass curtains, our clients then required a system of shade which could be used to protect against the low late afternoon sun.
Although we do of course offer solutions with interior blinds rather than exterior, it was decided, mainly due to the pillars, that fitting interior blinds would have taken up too much space within the naya.
Providing shade on the outside would not take up any internal space and also have the added benefit of stopping the majority of heat from entering the naya through the glass.
Extendible arm awnings were dismissed due to the excessively windy location. In the end we opted for the Fully Boxed Drop Arm awnings with double drop fabric which offered several advantages: Full protection of the awning fabric, strength in the windy conditions (not when extended beyond 90 degrees) and the ability to extend the awnings down to nearly 180 degrees giving even more protection against the very low sun.
Motor systems were added with a multichannel remote control allowing 3 programmed positions: closed, mid-way (90 deg) and maximum limit (nearly 180 deg).
