The Leiner Garda HK is a discreet, elegant awning that’s suitable for any style of building. It has a large front profile which protects the awning fabric and folding arms, and an extremely robust arm system which keeps the awning fabric taut thanks to its special geometry.
A Leiner tilting joint, fitted as standard, guarantees a reliable closing action, and the integrated high-impact brake offers safety and many years of precise functionality. The heavy components are made from hardened aluminium and Leiner’s special manufacturing process makes the awning components more resilient and long-lasting.
Choice of operating systems
You have a choice of three operating systems with the standard version of the Leiner Garda HK: manual (lowest price), electric, or radio-controlled. Thanks to Somfy RTS wireless technology, the radio-controlled option allows you to extend and retract your awning using a remote control.
The GARDA HK VARIO-VOLANT is available in a maximum width of 650 cm and a maximum projection of 400 cm (with bottom profile up to 300 cm), coupled systems with a slit cover in a maximum width of 1,300 cm and a maximum projection of 400 cm (with bottom profile up to 300 cm). In the standard version an electric motor is included.
The GARDA HK comes in the standard colour white (RAL 9010), or alternatively in one of the 18 LEINER LOUNGE fine structured finishes. We can also supply them in any preferred RAL colour for an additional charge.
Wind 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 GARDA HK: 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.
GARDA semi cassette 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 GARDA HK can also be operated manually with a crank (lower price).
GARDA semi cassette awning with integrated led lightsLighting
The GARDA HK is optionally available with an LED lighting system integrated in the folding arms. This is wirelessly dimmable. The indirect light creates a moody atmosphere.
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.
GARDA 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 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.
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 awning
The CALYPSO ROLL side awning protects against both sunlight from the side and inquisitive glances – making it the perfect complement to the GARDA HK for your terrace or balcony. The side awning protects also against light wind.
