There are 4 main types of awning:
The traditional store: the awning wraps around its axis, without protection unless a "cap" is added (optional). This awning has a very good value for money and can be installed on a terrace or a balcony.
The box awning: all the elements of the awning fold up completely in a box. It is the most durable blind because all the elements will be protected. It is particularly recommended for homes by the sea.
The semi-box awning: the canvas folds into a trunk but not the arms. The semi-chest ensures a good lifespan of the canvas. Its affordable price allows a good compromise between traditional awning and box.
The one-piece blind: the awning is delivered pre-assembled, you just have to hang it up but the fabric and the arms are not protected unless you add a cap (optional). The one-piece blind is at an affordable price and will have the advantage of being easy to assemble and also to troubleshoot! If the awning is not placed under a balcony or a roof, it is advisable to equip it with a cap to protect the canvas.

As with all joinery installations, we strongly recommend calling on professionals to benefit from the manufacturer's guarantees as well as the installer's ten-year warranty. Because, in addition to the technical difficulty of the installation, there is also the “security” factor to take into account. Indeed, a store can weigh very heavy, but if it is poorly fixed it is not impossible that it will come off (see tearing off the wall), following a gust of wind or bad weather. There is therefore a great risk that the awning will fall on a person or even damage property. Thus, it is important to call on a professional who, first of all, can advise you on the choice of a suitable model, but also ensures an installation that meets manufacturer standards to guarantee safety.
