Whether opened or closed, the discreet design of the GARDA HK makes it outstandingly suitable for any style of building. The large front profile protects the awning fabric and folding arms. The extremely heavy-duty arm system keeps the awning fabric taut thanks to its special geometry. The LEINER tilting joint fitted as standard guarantees a lastingly reliable closing action, the integrated windlock clip offers safety and many years of precise functionality.
Awning components subject to particularly heavy wear, 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 is optionally available with an LED lighting system integrated in the folding arms. This is wirelessly dimmable. The indirect light creates a moody atmosphere under the custom made GARDA HK.
The GARDA HK is available in a maximum width of 650 cm and a maximum projection of 400 cm (with bottom profile up to 350 cm), coupled systems with a slit cover in a maximum width of 1,950 cm and a maximum projection of 400 cm (with bottom profile up to 350 cm). In the standard version the awning comes with an electric motor.
The GARDA HK comes in the standard colour white (RAL 9010), or alternatively in one of the 18 LEINER LOUNGE fine structured finishes. We can also supply them in any preferred RAL colour for an additional charge.
Only the combination of premium awning technology and a weatherproof yet elegant awning fabric will make your awning unique to you.
LEINER materials are known both for their quality and for the wide selection of different patterns. Our range comprises more than 200 patterns from various colour schemes and many special fabrics – with a diversity of choice extending from classic block stripes through timeless, monochrome materials to modern stripes. Last but not least, LEINER's awning fabrics offer protection against UV rays of up to factor 80.
Discover the many different optional extras for the GARDA HK semicassette awning:
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: 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.
A radio-controlled motor is available instead of an electric motor in the standard version. The Somfy io wireless technology means that not only can the awning be extended and retracted using the remote control, but you can also use your smartphone to control it if necessary. 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 GARDA HK is optionally available with an LED lighting system integrated in the folding arms. This is wirelessly dimmable. The indirect light creates a moody atmosphere under the GARDA HK.
The SAFETY MOTION emergency manual drive is the last-resort concept for your awning – should the radio-controlled motor ever go on strike, the GARDA HK 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 GARDA HK for your terrace or balcony. The side awning protects also against light wind.
