The PIANO – the cubic cassette awning

The PIANO – the cubic cassette awning

The outstanding design of the PIANO isn't the only impressive thing about it: when closed, the awning fabric and arms are optimally protected against the weather conditions in the cassette. That puts the resilient, long-lasting cassette awning among the elite of sun protection systems.


Long life and reliability are what characterise high-end awnings. Components made from specially hardened aluminium are the quality base for your PIANO. These components ensure long life and reliability, which are the characteristics of a high-end awning. The proven sturdy tilting joints ensure that the cassette retains its good closing behavior.


The straightforward and timeless design of your house should not stop at the sun protection. Go for a consistently cubic design for your awning as well.

Optional extras

Discover the many different optional extras for the PIANO cassette awning:


PIANO awning wind proof thanks to 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 PIANO: 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.


PIANO awning getting smart home readyDrive

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 indirect light creates a moody atmosphere. The io wireless system allows your awning to be integrated into your smart home.  On request, the PIANO can also be operated manually with a crank (lower price).


PIANO awning with integrated led lightsLighting

The PIANO is optionally available with two atmospheric LED lighting systems. The dimmable LED lighting on the underneath of the cassette ensures pleasant light on the terrace even when the awning is closed. The lighting can also be expanded with an LED lighting system integrated in the folding arms. Both light sources can be controlled separately. The indirect light creates a moody atmosphere.

PIANO awning with safety motion systemSAFETY MOTION

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


HeaterAwning heaters in LEINER LOUNGE colours

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.


CALYPSO ROLL side awningAwning with side awning

The CALYPSO ROLL side awning protects against both sunlight from the side and inquisitive glances – making it the perfect complement to the PIANO for your terrace or balcony. The side awning protects also against light wind. 

3D sensorwind sensor for awning PIANO

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.


ControlAutomated wind and weather sensor for awnings

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.

What is...?

  • Emergency crank handle motors (SAFETY MOTION)

    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.

  • VARIO-VOLANT valance

    A VARIO-VOLANT valance is an awning fabric that can be steplessly rolled up from the front profil. It provides privacy from the neighbourhood and provides shade, even when the sun is low. An awning without a VARIO-VOLANT valance is of very limited use on west-facing terraces, which are often exposed to the sunset. The shaded area is enlarged by simply extending the VARIO-VOLANT valance, for which a range of special fabrics as well as the normal awning fabrics are available. All VARIO-VOLANT valances from LEINER can also be controlled automatically by remote control on request.

  • Angle of inclination

    The angle of inclination is set when the awning is mounted.

  • Hardened aluminium

    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.


  • Cassette awning

    The cassette awning consists of extruded aluminium profiles. The entire mechanism of a cassette awning is hidden in the interior of these profiles when the cassette is closed. The profiles thereby protect the awning fabric and mechanism.
