The GARDA HK VARIO-VOLANT – the semi-cassette awning with the large front profile

The GARDA HK VARIO-VOLANT – the semi-cassette awning with the large front profile

Whether opened or closed, the discreet design of the GARDA HK with VARIO-VOLANT valance makes it outstandingly suitable for any style of building. The large front profile protects the awning fabric and folding arms. The robust arm system keeps the awning fabric taut thanks to its special geometry. The LEINER tilting joint fitted as standard ensures a lastingly reliable closing action, while the integrated high-impact brake guarantees safety and many years of precise functionality. 

 

With the addition of a VARIO-VOLANT valance, the GARDA HK both ensures privacy and provides customised shade that can be ideally adjusted to the course of the sun – a must for west-facing balconies or terraces at sunset. In the standard version the fabric of the valance is operated manually using a crank gear. Thanks to our wide range of fabrics and drive types, there are a lot of combination possibilities.

 

Particularly heavily loaded awning components, such as arm brackets or folding-arm parts, are made from hardened aluminium. Our special manufacturing process not only makes the awning components more resistant, but also enhances the safety and long life of our awnings. Further information about LEINER quality can be found here

 

The GARDA HK VARIO-VOLANT is optionally available with an LED lighting system integrated in the folding arms. This can be wirelessly dimmable on request. The indirect light creates a moody atmosphere.

Optional extras

Discover the many different optional extras for the GARDA HK VARIO-VOLANT semicassette awning:

 

GARDA awning combineds with wind protect systemWind Protect System

The Wind Protect System WPS is an innovation of LEINER and was originally developed for the more stringent requirements of awnings for cafés and restaurants. The Wind Protect System WPS is now also available for the GARDA HK VARIO-VOLANT: fixable supports on the front profile significantly enhance the wind stability of your awning. Depending on the size of the awning, the WPS offers protection from winds up to wind strength 8 – even sudden gusts. For a wind tunnel test of the Wind Protect System WPS, take a look at this video.

 

GARDA's radio control, GARDA is an awning with valanceDrive

A radio-controlled motor is available instead of an electric motor in the standard version. Thanks to Somfy io wireless technology, extending and retracting does not only work via remote control. Your smartphone can also be used for control. The io wireless system allows your awning to be integrated into your smart home.  On request, the GARDA HK can also be operated manually with a crank (lower price).

The VARIO-VOLANT valance can be conveniently retracted and extended using a crank. If the awning is fitted with a radio-controlled motor, the valance can also be fitted with such a motor – for maximum convenience.

GARDA HK awning with valance and safety motion systemSAFETY MOTION

The SAFETY MOTION emergency manual drive is the emergency concept for your awning - if the motor does not work, the awning can be closed manually with the emergency manual drive using a crank.

GARDA awning's wind sensor3D sensor

The radio-controlled motor drive variant can also be supplemented with a 3D sensor. Attached to the front profile, the sensor responds to the intensity of the movement of the awning, retracting it automatically if the wind gets too strong. Please note, however, that an electronic control will not protect your awning from sudden strong gusts of wind.

 

Awning with integrated led lightsLighting

The GARDA HK VARIO-VOLANT is optionally available with an LED lighting system integrated in the folding arms. This is wirelessly dimmable. The indirect light creates a moody atmosphere.

 

wind control and sensor for awning GARDA HKControl

Fully automated controls complement the electric drive and offer additional comfort and safety as sun and wind monitors, automatically extending or retracting your awning according to the sunlight or wind strength, even when you are not at home. Please note, however, that an electronic control will not protect your awning from sudden strong gusts of wind. An alternative is the manual Wind Protect System WPS. This optional extra variant stabilises your awning and also absorbs the sudden loads produced by gusts.

Heaters for awnings in LEINER LOUNGE coloursHeater

A heater allows you to sit out longer on those balmy summer evenings and enjoy the pleasant warmth under your awning. The heaters are also available in one of our 18 LEINER LOUNGE colours to match the awning. You also have the option of operating it wirelessly and integrating it into your smart home.

What is...?

  • Hardened aluminium
    x

    This is a special aluminium alloy that is given additional hardness through a subsequent thermal process. The material guarantees long life and resistance and meets the highest safety requirements. The special LEINER manufacturing process doubles the resistance and results in a durable strength of up to 350 N/mm². Thanks to the hardened aluminium, even awnings with a projection of 4 metres and on the other hand heavier profiles with an additional VARIO-VOLANT valance can be realized.

    .

  • Emergency crank handle motors (SAFETY MOTION)
    x

    The SAFETY MOTION emergency manual drive is the contingency plan for your awning. If the radio-controlled motor does not work, the awning can be closed manually by crank with the emergency manual drive.

  • LEINER LOUNGE COLOURS
    xThe LEINER LOUNGE COLOURS are used for the awning components and are characterised by a very finely structured surface and special metallic effect. The particularly high-grade powder coating is available in a total of 18 colours and is also extremely robust.
  • Wind Protect System (WPS)
    x

    The Wind Protect System WPS is an innovation of LEINER and was originally developed for the more stringent requirements of awnings for the gastronomy. Fixable supports on the front profile significantly enhance the wind stability of your awning. Depending on the size of the awning, the WPS offers protection from winds of up to wind strength 8, even in the event of sudden gusts of wind.

  • Powder coating
    x

    LEINER aluminium components are almost always powder-coated. In powder coating, a coloured powder is sprayed onto the surface to be coated; then the powder is "baked on" by thermal treatment. Powder-coated surfaces are characterised by high resistance and colour fastness.
