Protect your awnings from freezing temperatures
Good news for those who love the winter season: cold weather has arrived. We are preparing our garden for winter and storing our garden furniture to protect it from frost damage. Your patio cover or awning can also use some extra attention during the winter season. We advise you to be on the alert, especially during freezing temperatures. This way, you guarantee the life span of your awning.
We recommend to close your awning at night, so that it is safely stored in its protective case and not exposed to severe weather conditions. Our patio covers are designed to withstand various weather conditions, so you can enjoy the outdoors longer. Each option or function has its own purpose, whether to protect or enhance your outdoor space: the screens provide protection from wind, sun, and rain, the integrated drainage system keeps your terrace dry, and the automatically operated louvers adapt to your needs and the weather conditions.
Brustor pergolas have built-in frost protection. This protection is disabled by default, but it’s possible to enable this function to prevent damage to your pergola. In this case, the louvers open automatically at about 3 degrees Celsius. This prevents the louvers from freezing together and causing damage when opening the roof. So, the frost function is an important asset to protect the louvers during severe weather conditions.
Another convenient solution is the Tahoma Smart Home Hub system. This gives you full control of your pergola via an app. If you leave the house and forgot to close your awning system, you can easily control it remotely with your smartphone or tablet.
Cleaning your awning
We recommend that you clean your awning well before the frosty period. Both your awning and patio cover can be cleaned in a few simple steps.
