Protect your privacy with a Curtain awning

This post is also available in: esSpanish

The Curtain awning is a type of vertical awning, ideal for installation on balconies or terraces, although they are also usually installed inside shopping centers with the intention of separating spaces.

Collection and extension system

These awnings have a very simple collection system: they use an axis on which the fabric is rolled. A crank is usually employed for the collection and extension of the awning, although for large awnings the best option is usually to motorize the system, since it will be much more comfortable.


The curtain awnings have a serie of positions that we can use to our taste: the simplest is vertical to the axis that allows us to cover the entire vertical to the bottom and another common position is achieved by extending the arms, that are installed in the ends of the awning. With them we will get an inclined position that allows the light in.


There are several types of fabrics that can be used in a curtain awning.

  • Acrylic: It has a high durability and the possibilities of personalization, and prints are very large.
  • Polyester with PVC coating: Water resistant.
  • Soltis: It is an ideal fabric to protect us from heat and solar radiation.
  • Screen: It is a fabric that is composed of fiberglass and PVC, offers a lot of protection from the sun and can allow the passage of light depending on the thickness of the threads of the fabric.

This type of awning, in general, is preferred by those people who seek to protect their privacy from prying eyes and who also want to protect themselves from the sun without spending a large amount of money. In addition, being a very robust awning and resistant to the effects of sun and rain, its durability is high.
