Offering the ultimate in style and functionality, the Leiner Piano Awning can be used in a variety of outdoor settings. When closed, both the fabric and the arms of the awning are optimally protected from the weather by a cassette. The special Leiner manufacturing process for the heavy-charged components is made from specially toughened aluminium, which ensures maximum safety, while enabling the awning to have the largest possible dimensions. Leiner’s awning fabrics offer protection against UV rays of up to SPF80, and the unit can be mounted on the wall, ceiling or rafters.
Choice of operating systems
The Leiner Piano Awning awning is equipped with an electric motor as standard. On request, for even greater convenience, it can also be fitted with a radio-controlled motor with remote control. A number of remote controls (manual and wall switches) are available.
The PIANO is available in a maximum width of 600 cm and a maximum projection of 350 cm or a maximum width of 650 cm and a maximum projection of 250 cm. In the standard version the awning comes with an electric motor.
The PIANO is available in the standard colour white (RAL 9010) or in one of the 18 LEINER LOUNGE fine structured finishes. We can also supply them in any preferred RAL colour for an additional charge.
Discover the many different optional extras for the PIANO cassette awning:
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 PIANO: 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.
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 indirect light creates a moody atmosphere. The io wireless system allows your awning to be integrated into your smart home. On request, the PIANO can also be operated manually with a crank (lower price).
The PIANO is optionally available with two atmospheric LED lighting systems. The dimmable LED lighting on the underneath of the cassette ensures pleasant light on the terrace even when the awning is closed. The lighting can also be expanded with an LED lighting system integrated in the folding arms. Both light sources can be controlled separately. 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.
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 PIANO for your terrace or balcony. The side awning protects also against light wind.
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.
