Warema has completely overhauled its versatile window awning range. The modular design makes the system even more flexible, gives architects total freedom when drawing up their plans and can be combined with additional furnishing elements.
The modular window awning range can be combined in many different ways to find the right solution for almost any situation. The new guide rail system gives architects total freedom when drawing up their plans, as the identical, one-piece guide rails can be used for many product variants and building sizes. Planners and property developers can use the guide rail as a placeholder and wait until the product is commissioned to decide which variant to use. Once a decision has been made, one of two clip profiles can be inserted, and no time is wasted drawing up new plans.
Maximum flexibility, simple planning
The new easyZIP technology, which last year replaced Warema’s previous ZIP technology, offers a new kind of flexibility. All existing ZIP specifications still apply and some have actually been extended. One of the system's major advantages is that easyZIP avoids undesired light gaps and forms a smooth transition with the facade. With a guide rail width of just 26 mm, the particularly small rail dimensions allow the easyZIP guidance to be integrated into the facade unobtrusively. The guide rail can also be integrated into the reveal. Simple installation with a clip profile increases the functional reliability of the window awning. This ensures that the fabric is consistently firm while reducing friction in the guide system. It increases installation speed and safety, and wind stability has also improved significantly. Even when lowered, front-mounted awnings with a size of 3 by 3 metres and easyZIP guidance can withstand wind speeds of up to 150 kilometres per hour.
easyZIP for front-mounted and top-mounted variants
One exciting new feature is the small easyZIP guide rail, which can be fully plastered. It is also part of the new product line of front-mounted awnings. It comes with boxes in three shapes: rectangular, half-round and round.
The new top-mounted awning for new buildings (NA-MA) opens up many opportunities for architects. It satisfies the trend for facade integration and is also available as a complete system with easyZIP guidance. NA-MA can also be ordered as a modular system without a box and can be integrated into existing boxes
New adhesive procedure with edge-to-edge seaming
Another option is the new UltraSeamTM adhesive procedure for acrylic fabrics, which noticeably reduces differences in tension and the wrinkling this can produce. In contrast to traditional sewing and adhesive methods, the panels of fabric are not glued together with an overlap, but are instead connected edge to edge. This improves winding behaviour and creates a more uniform appearance, which in turn is achieved by using an adhesive tape to join the panels of fabric. The tape is barely visible, particularly on light-coloured designs and in sunshine. The new adhesive procedure enables significantly larger fabric heights when the fabric is joined longitudinally.
Awning window system for integration into exterior insulation and finish system (EIFS)
The new awning window system (FSM) can be perfectly integrated into exterior insulation and finish systems thanks to the cover panel's variable front and rear bending. The cover panel and guide rail can be fully plastered for a great look. A single cover panel variant with different guide rails – easyZIP, rail, markisolette, cable and drop arm – makes planning much easier.
Different models for greater safety
Individual models complement the modular window awning range. VisioNeo fall protection is an almost invisible integrated windowpane for floor-to-ceiling windows and can be combined with the new window awning system as well as with front-mounted awnings with easyZIP guidance.
Warema's intelligent SecuKit technology offers additional safety for French doors that serve as a second emergency route. This clever accessory for the new front-mounted awning with easyZIP guidance allows awnings to be raised quickly and simply at any time – even in the event of a blackout.
