Gelenkarmmarkise Erhardt BS

open folding arm awning ERHARDT BS

for modern demands

Product description

The ERHARDT BS is the ideal solution for every requirement, whether protected under a balcony or overhanging roof, free-hanging and exposed to everything the weather can throw at it, or with two levels of shade thanks to a Vario-Valance. The ERHARDT BS can be used as an open folding-arm awning in a protected area, in the open thanks to its additional rain cover, and/or as a completely enclosed system that provides full protection for the fabric and the mechanism. For optimum vertical protection from the sun and to give you the privacy you want, the ERHARDT BS »Deluxe« can be equipped with a Vario-Valance, which can be operated conveniently in the same way as the main awning via the wireless hand transmitter. The awning is equipped with a valance as standard, and a designer drop profil is also available.recommend our Soltis fabric collection for the double awning. This fabric allows a view towards the outside from the inside.

ERHARDT BS L-Version: more failure than width

Our L models are designed for exceptional stability using different arm positions. The folding arms are arranged one above the other. This makes dimensions with more projection length than width possible (e.g.: 250 cm x 400 cm). Ideal for deep balconies and terraces.

Equipment recommendation

The awning with Vario-Valance can be extended vertically up to 1.60 m (using a crank or remote-con-trol motor) to significantly improve the shaded area. What’s more, the vertical awning offers excellent protection against glare when the sun is low in the sky. The Soltis fabric designs give you a view towards the outside, but protect you from curious glances looking in.



The sophistication of the ERHARDT BS lies in its simplicity and the modular concept – the level of protection and the design can be adapted depending on the requirements.

High-quality folding arms

The folding arms, made from extruded aluminium, ensure optimum fabric tension and are equipped with a maintenance-free stainless steel fl yer chain as standard.

Vario-Valance for more protection

An optional Vario-Valance, which is operated independently of the main awning and can be extended by up to 160 cm, provides protection from low sun and prying eyes.

Assembly options

Every ERHARDT BS is available with wall bracket, ceiling mounting and rafter mounting options to provide a customised solution to meet the demands of every situation.
