Outdoor wellness. Designed.



Winner of the 2010 red dot design award, SHAN is the state of the art of the cassette awnings.

Cutting edge performances, unprecedented design and the parallelepiped shape with the multi stripe effect of the surface make this model unique in the awning sector.

The DTS function -Dynamic Tipping System- enables a fluid opening of the arms when the awning is unfolding and a perfect coupling of profiles in the delicate retracting phase; the DAT function (Dynamic Arm Torsion) prevents any damage to the fabric in the unfolding and retracting phases.

The Aquastop gasket favours a perfect adherence of the cassette to the wall hence blocking the flowing of water in case of rain.

SHAN is only available in the motorized version and can be up to 7 m length with a 4,15 m projection in a single section. Tested by TÜV Rheinland according to EU norm EN 13561, its design is patented in all EU Member States; it offers a 5 year guarantee.

Optional extras: sun and wind sensors

Finding original colours to reflect our customer`s character was one of our objectives. We achieved it.
The design concept also comes out through the expression of colour: that`s why Shadelab has introduced graphite as standard colour, nowadays widespread in contemporary architecture.
The use of sablé colours gives the awning a different light, never seen before in the sun shading world: warmth, modernity, technology –in a single word Shadelab.
Discover how the new colour corten is enhanced in cassette awnings and how it can transform the aesthetic of square bar awnings. Architecture finally finds in sun shading systems furnishing objects that had missed so far.
And for the most demanding customers, Shadelab offers the opportunity to chose a customized colour to make the furnishing experience unique and exclusive.
