Vertical drop awnings

Vertical drop awnings are an excellent solution to achieve both frontal and lateral protection on windows and balconies by having the fabric descend vertically in line with the wall.
The vertical drop awning provides complete sun shielding.



Vertical drop awnings can be installed with or without lateral guides for greater stability. This type of awning does not include pivot arms. The awning can be equipped with a cassette for the protection of the fabric. These vertical drop solar shades can be installed on walls, both frontally or laterally, or ceilings. The opening can be gear, spring or electric.

Use of vertical drop awnings

Vertical drop awnings can be installed on any type of wall or ceiling to provide maximum protection from the sun. They are widely used for residential buildings such as apartments or villas.

The fabric 

You can choose from a wide range of acrylic or resin fabrics, depending on your needs and preferences. Teflon treatment provides water and oil resistance, making fabrics rot-proof, immune to mold growth and resistant to grease. The fabrics are also resistant to fading traditionally caused by sunlight.
Each fabric is evaluated according to UNI EN 13561 to define the performance requirements of awning fabrics and their safety. The awning aims to increase environmental comfort and improve visual comfort while contributing to an increasing focus on energy conservation.


These awnings offer both frontal and lateral protection. The pivot arm version allows to choose between full and partial closure.
These awnings fit every architectural style, from the most classical to the modern ones. They can strongly characterize the building on which they are mounted, thanks to the wide choice of fabrics available.
Vertical drop awnings are totally made to measure, in various designs.
