MLL-Drop arm awning

MLL drop-arm awnings are also known as failure awnings and are the oldest type of awning in the shading sector. As a preferred place of application, they are used as balcony and window awnings. This effective sun protection is characterised by widely projecting arms and thus provides a large amount of shade. The spring-loaded drop arms provide a stable hold. It is suitable for installation on windows for front shading, but also for side shading. Drop-arm awnings are a mixture of practical sun protection and design element on the facade. They allow a view to the outside through the flared arms and are a real eye-catcher thanks to the matching colour scheme of the awning frame and covering.

There are no limits to your own designs on the fabric, the wide range of high quality textiles makes it possible. Of course, the fabrics are also available in plain colours, woven in two colours or with block stripes in various widths. Do you have any questions about further options and designs? Then please contact us, we will be happy to work out your wishes with you.

MLL system structure:

A drop-arm awning consists of a fabric shaft through which the fabric is rolled in and out, and two laterally mounted bearing brackets which simultaneously serve as fabric shaft bearings and fastenings. The drop arms can be moved to any desired position by means of the manual or electric drive. The drop arms provide a solid hold despite their steep inclination. It provides a lot of shade and still guarantees a good view to the outside.
