Patio canopies

Get closer to nature with heroal patio canopies made of aluminium

There’s no place like outside – with the right protection: an aluminium patio canopy by heroal turns your patio into an all-weather open-air living-room, where wind and rain can do you no harm. Furthermore, the integrated sun screens offer optimal protection against heat, glaring light and prying eyes.

Combine your patio canopy with a moving glass wall system, fixed glazed panels or shading systems, like horizontal or vertical blinds. You can easily add these accessories when needed, since heroal’s components are also suited for a retrofit at a later date. The especially harmonious design is yet another outstanding feature – all accessory systems for the patio canopy are perfectly matched. Patio canopies by heroal are exclusively manufactured in Germany and offer first-class quality ”Made in Germany”.

    heroal HS
    Patio canopy with blind

    In spring we are happy about the first rays of sunlight, but in summer, especially at noon when the sun is highest in the sky, we long for shady spot. With an integrated blind, you can individually control how much sun you would like to have on your patio – at the touch of a button. In addition, an integrated blind saves you from a heat accumulation under the patio canopy. This sun protection can also be easily installed at a later date.

    The horizontal blind heroal HS (horizontal screen) is mounted above the glass of your patio canopy, harmoniously matching the design of your patio canopy. Thanks to the innovative zip-technology, the textile is held firmly in its guide rails, withstanding even high wind speeds. You can choose from a wide range of versatile fabric designs, which can be perfectly adapted to the look of your home, in addition to other accessory systems.

    Horizontal blind >
    heroal W 50 C
    Patio canopy with fixed glazed panels

    Fixed glazed panels are especially suited for locations where a higher protection against wind and rain is very important. Side elements with a fixed glazing optimally protect against driving rain and squalls. They can be integrated on one or both sides of your patio canopy as well as at the front. It is also possible to install them at a later date. That way, you can enjoy fresh air and your garden – from a sheltered place.

    The non-insulated window system heroal W 50 C is ideally suited to be used for your patio canopy as elements with fixed glazing. It can be flush-mounted and offers narrow face widths. Just as the patio canopy system heroal OR, the elements with fixed glazing of the heroal W 50 C range can be supplied with the highly weather resistant heroal hwr powder coating, available in a number of RAL chart and Le Corbusier colours. Other surface looks, e.g. wood, concrete or rust, are also possible thanks to the coating technology heroal SD (Surface Design). You can optimally adapt these elements to your patio canopy – also at a later date.

    heroal S 20 C
    Patio canopy with moving glass wall

    A moving glass wall, also referred to as glass sliding door, creates greatest flexibility. Just as an element with fixed glazing, the moving glass wall can be installed on one or both sides of your patio canopy. You can also close all open sides of your patio canopy completely by moving glass walls. In next to no time, your patio turns into a summer garden, well-protected all-around. With falling temperatures in the evening hours, you can keep the warmth of the day under your patio canopy by closing the glass elements. There is no need to go back into the house immediately when it gets cooler outside.

    The non-insulated moving glass wall heroal S 20 C is especially durable and perfectly suited for extending covered areas outside. Slide dampers ensure that the sliding sashes open and close safely and comfortably, being automatically drawn into their final position. The 3-, 4- or 5-track glass sliding door may be opened to one or both sides, the sashes may optionally be moved to only one side or can be designed as a French door variant. The barrier-free threshold guarantees maximum ease of use.

  • What are the advantages of a patio canopy?

    More than just a patio canopy: aluminium patio canopies from heroal offer many advantages and give you the opportunity of extending your living space and using your garden year-round.

    365 days
    Use your patio in every season

    A patio canopy extends your living space and enables you to use your patio all-season. Enjoy the first rays of the sun in spring, sheltered from the wind. Do not let thunderstorms and squalls finish your barbecue prematurely in the summer. Enjoy the last few warm days in autumn and also keep your garden furniture on the patio in winter, your patio canopy protects them against all kinds of weather.

    Protection against the weather
    Brave the wind and the rain

    The most important advantage of patio canopies is the protection they offer against the weather. Covered by a patio canopy, you can use your patio regardless of the weather – in rain, wind or sunshine. Equipped with the right accessory components, a covered patio turns into a second living-room outdoors. Moving glass walls or fixed glazed panels provide for optimal protection against wind and rain. That way, sudden changes in the weather can no longer surprise you when you are having a garden party.

    Protection against prying eyes
    Enjoy your privacy

    Vertical sun blinds do not just protect you against direct sun radiation, they also keep prying eyes away from your patio. Enjoy the privacy of your garden without being disturbed – just at the touch of a button.

    Protection against heat
    Control the temperature

    Blinds to protect against direct sun radiation can be installed above the glass roof. The blind prevents the heat accumulating under the patio canopy when direct sunlight is strong and creates a pleasant climate in your room. In the summer, your children can be well-protected as they play outside all day long.

  • What are the advantages of a patio canopy made from aluminium?

    A patio canopy made from aluminium is extremely durable and easy care. Powder-coated aluminium does not require a lot of care, as opposed to wood. Regular cleaning with water and a mild cleaner will remove dirt and stains. Also, aluminium is resistant to corrosion and withstands the elements, for example moisture, wind and freezing temperatures. This material can also be used very flexibly, so that patio canopies in different structural designs and colours can be made to measure and individually adapted to your requirements. Thanks to their sturdy design, any additional supports or posts are only required for extremely large patio canopies.
