The PICO – the compact awning for small terraces and balconies

The PICO – the compact awning for small terraces and balconies

The PICO compact cassette awning was developed for more confined spaces. Its filigree yet very sturdy structure will grace any balcony or terrace. The maximum angle of inclination of the folding arms of 85 degrees makes the PICO ideal for overhead mounting on balconies.

 

Particularly heavily loaded awning components, such as folding arms, 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.

Optional extras

Discover the many different optional extras for the PICO compact cassette awning:

 

PICO cassette awning 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 PICO: 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.

 

PICO awning 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 io wireless system allows your awning to be integrated into your smart home. On request, the PICO can also be operated manually with a crank (lower price).

PICO 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.

 

Fully automated control for PICO awningControl

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 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.

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

What is...?

  • Rain resistance
    x

    The rain resistance of the awning fabric depends on the material used. Acrylic fabrics have a water-repellent impregnation and can be used in light rain if the awning is tilted appropriately. However, 100% waterproof PVC fabrics (Précontraint 302) are preferred, as they can be used without damage even in constant rain.

  • Front profile
    x

    The front profile is the front end of your LEINER awning and is also known as the drop profile. The awning fabric is attached to the front profile and transported forward as the folding arms extend. Also a valance may be attached to the front profile.

    .

  • 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.
  • 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.

  • 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.
