Versatile and perfectly shaped

The Portofino awning provides optimal shade and comfort all year round. It was specially conceived to create shade for glass roofs, conservatories and patios. The awning comprises extruded aluminium profiles and a ZIP system with patented balance spring technology, ensuring a taut sit of the awning fabric, greater wind security and unbroken shade from the sun.

The Portofino is extremely versatile and is available as an interior ZIP awning or as a pergola-type awning with columns. The modularity of the system makes it possible to order in any dimensions up to 30 m² without additional support profiles being required for the pergola model. Optional comfort features such as io wireless remote control and LED lighting integrated into the casing can also be added to the Portofino awning.
