New product: art_02. MHZ adds to cassette awning range

The art_02 cassette awning is once again an in-house development. Seven metres wide and projecting four metres forward, the new retractable awning provides shade for even larger areas. Visually the company from Leinfelden-Echterdingen draws here on the modern, cubic design of the art_01.


In terms of size, the new art_02 MHZ cassette awning outdoes its little sister art_01 by some way. The larger art_02 now achieves a maximum projection of 4 metres with a width of seven metres. Nevertheless, it needs just two joint arms and two brackets. Varying by length of projection, MHZ uses differing joint arms for the art_02, which all follow an identical design line. With its great projection and particularly wide awning fabric measurement, the new product is ideal for large terraces or balconies, even, with two units linked, up to a width of 14 metres.

With a width of 265 millimetres and a height of 175, the art_02 cassette is hardly any bigger than that of the smaller art_01. The clear styling of the enclosed construction in modern, cubic design and the harmonious edges pick up on the design of the art_01, its little sister.

Just two brackets and their adjustable centre-to-centre distance make installing the art_02 easy. While with its low installed height the art_01 was particularly geared towards ceiling installation, the art_02 impresses in wall installation through its minimal wall clearance of just 14 millimetres. When installing on concrete, the fixings are also attached behind the cassette and are thus invisible. The removable side caps provide space for stowing the Hirschmann plug for the awning's motor. It is possible in addition to fit an LED strip into the high-quality plastic cover, thus facilitating the illumination of terraces and balconies. The associated transformer with integrated RTS receiver is likewise built into the cassette.
