STORBOX-400: the R-Evolution of cassette awnings
STORBOX is a range of awnings with a protective cassette box. The concept arose in the early nineties as the pioneer awning incorporating this innovation. Without a doubt, this concept represented a revolution and a real advance in the sector as it provided a quality product that generated high added value that also set it apart from existing systems.
It’s no wonder that STORBOX is one of the most popular and sought-after models on the market. Its success throughout its entire existence relies on two key features. Firstly, it offers a high technical performance appreciated by both users and installers. Secondly, its aesthetics have evolved over the years, with very intricate designs that we always find enchanting.
The STORBOX-400 version is unique due to its aerodynamic shape, giving it a strong and dynamic look. Its finish and workmanship give it a high-end appearance, as both the trims and side covers are made of aluminium. This quality gives it an elegant, 100% metallic look. In addition to conveying strength, this allows all the parts to be lacquered, leading to greater durability.
The versatility of the product’s design allows two possible operating modes: Motor or manual.
It is possible to choose between two different aesthetics for the side covers for configuring the set. The type of cover, mainly related to the method of operation, provides either a straight shape finish or a further option with a greater volumetric effect.
One of the most innovative features of the product is the option for LED lighting. STORBOX-400 has it installed in the front profile and in the arms. Combined with the ONYX-LUX arm model, it is possible to set up the awning to provide both day and night protection. The ONYX-LUX arms are specially designed for this, and already include the passage of the cable through the arm elbow to avoid additional external elements.
On a technical level, STORBOX-400 provides very interesting advantages in terms of time-saving and ease of assembly, values that are very much appreciated by professionals.
The arms are always aligned thanks to a very stable regulation system. This means the awning always has a balanced look on the façade.
It is possible to say that STORBOX-400 is a perfect and very competitive option for awnings up to 6 m wide by 4 m of projection. It is worth noting that these maximum dimensions are achieved with just two side supports and no need for any intermediate bracket.
STORBOX-400 is accessible to BIM technology and is available on the Bimetica platform. This object has the GDO-BIM Quality Certificate.
