The innovative zip technology makes sure that the sun protection textile runs very smoothly and reliably in its guide rails, withstanding high wind speeds. heroal VS Z OR vertical awnings cover widths up to 6 m and heights up to 3 m without the need of any centre guidance.

Advantages of vertical awnings

Protection against glaring light

Depending on the time of day and the season, the sunlight hits your patio at a lower angle. A vertical awning provides protection from direct sun radiation when the sun is low in the sky, enabling you to enjoy your time on the patio without being blinded by the sun – at sunrise or sunset, in spring, summer or autumn.

Protection against prying eyes

Would you like to enjoy some undisturbed time on your patio and keep prying eyes out? A vertical sun protection for your patio canopy creates additional room for privacy and protects you from prying eyes.

Protection from wind and weather

Vertical awnings are ideally suited to protect you against draught or wind and rain on windy and rainy days. So you can enjoy the sheltered patio space, even if the wind changes direction.
