We all love to spend our free time outside – even when the sun isn’t shining and temperatures are low. Outdoor living is wonderful at any time of year. Restaurant and café owners are also aware of this trend and try to provide their guests with outdoor seating all year round. The right sun shading and rain protection products are vital to protect them from the elements. Warema has the perfect products to make outdoor spaces attractive and ready for any type of weather.
Outdoor spaces need the right equipment if they are to be used through the majority of the year. High-quality, combined rain protection and sun shading is the best option for attracting guests and providing them with a comfortable outdoor space. This creates additional seating and ensures that guests will stay longer and come again – increasing revenues in the process. Warema, the sun shading expert, particularly recommends its Lamaxa slat roofs and Perea pergola awnings for the food service and hotel industry. Both product types are weatherproof and cover large areas. They offer protection from the sun, rain and wind, ensuring that guests can sit outside even if the weather takes a turn for the worse.
Lamaxa slat roofs: multi-functional and modern
Lamaxa slat roofs can be used to cover areas of up to 4.5 by 6 metres on any part of the property. If desired, they can be combined into series-mounted units for larger areas or connected to a wall. One of Lamaxa’s major advantages is that the roof slats can be adjusted as required (depending on the sun’s position) via radio remote control. The L70 model can even be extended or retracted, making it possible to open the roof almost completely. The slats also reliably divert rainwater so that guests do not get wet and can sit comfortably, even in bad weather. The slat roof can even support snow. The permissible snow load when fully functional is 50 kilograms per square metre for all sizes and variants.
Elegant and durable: Perea pergola awnings
Perea pergola awnings are another versatile solution for outdoor gastronomy. Warema's P60 and P70 models are available with rain-proof fabric that diverts rain into the integrated gutter for controlled drainage. The P60 is ideal for restaurants looking for a stylish yet durable sun shading solution for areas of up to 30 square metres. When retracted, all the fabric disappears into the compact cover panel, protecting it from soiling. The P70 is designed to apply an elegant folding technique to the fabric. It reliably protects areas of up to 36 square metres from sunlight and rain. Perea pergola awnings can now also be installed with multicube gabions. This makes concrete foundations unnecessary and creates additional seating opportunities.
LED strips can be added to slat roofs and pergola awnings, creating atmospheric lighting in the evening. Sliding glass elements and awnings with easyZIP rails can be added if necessary to prevent wind and rain from entering through the sides. In the evenings and colder months, additional radiant heaters create a cosy atmosphere and prolong the open-air season. All elements can be easily controlled via the Warema Mobile System (WMS).
