The SUNRAIN with VARIO-VOLANT valance combines all the advantages of a folding arm awning with LEINER's patented SUNRAIN technology, making it the perfect solution for sun and rain because it provides shade and can remain extended when it is raining. You can stay outside, regardless of the weather conditions – the waterproof awning fabric allows rain to run off in a controlled manner from an incline of just 5 degrees (7.5 degrees for coupled systems).
The standard features include a waterproof awning fabric made of high-performance PVC that is easy to print on for advertising purposes. Movably mounted on the sturdy folding arms, two purlins support the fabric awning to counteract any sagging. Kept taut, the fabric allows rainwater to drain off – from an inclination of just 5 degrees (7.5 degrees with coupled systems). Despite the low mounting height, that means there is always sufficient space underneath the awning. The front profile also has an integrated rain gutter.
With the addition of a VARIO-VOLANT valance, the SUNRAIN 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 sunsets. Thanks to our wide range of fabrics, 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 SUNRAIN VARIO-VOLANT is available in a maximum width of 650 cm and a maximum projection of 400 cm, coupled systems with a slit cover in a maximum width of 1,950 cm and a maximum projection of 400 cm. As a standard the awning is equipped with an electric motor.
The SUNRAIN VARIO-VOLANT comes in the standard colour white (RAL 9010), or in one of the 18 LEINER LOUNGE fine structured finishes. We can also supply them in any preferred RAL colour for an additional charge – ask your specialist partner for advice.
Discover the many different optional extras for the SUNRAIN VARIO-VOLANT:
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 SUNRAIN 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.
The SUNRAIN VARIO-VOLANT is optionally available with a LED lighting system integrated in the folding arms. This is wirelessly dimmable. The indirect light creates a moody atmosphere.
The SUNRAIN VARIO-VOLANT can be fitted with a fixed hood profile to maintain the enjoyment of the quality of the awning fabric as long as possible.
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 SUNRAIN VARIO-VOLANT 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.
The SAFETY MOTION emergency manual drive is the last-resort concept for your awning – if the radio-controlled motor does not work, the SUNRAIN VARIO-VOLANT can be closed manually by crank with the emergency manual drive.
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.
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.
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.
The CALYPSO ROLL side awning protects against both sunlight from the side and inquisitive glances – making it the perfect complement to the SUNRAIN VARIO-VOLANT for your terrace or balcony. the side awning also protects against light wind.
A stabilizer bar stabilises the VARIO-VOLANT valance in light wind.
Only the combination of premium awning technology and a weatherproof yet elegant awning fabric will make your awning unique to you.
LEINER fabrics are known both for their quality and for the wide selection of different patterns. Last but not least, LEINER's awning fabrics offer protection against UV rays of up to factor 80.
