Sun shading product information

Do you want to lower the temperature under your veranda on sunny days? With Gumax® automatic sun shading, you can create a shaded terrace in no time. Gumax® sun shading can be fitted under Gumax® verandas as well as other types of verandas.

Colour and material

As with Gumax® verandas, Gumax® sun shading is available with profile colours matt anthracite (RAL 7016) and matt white (RAL 9016). This way, your sun shading matches your Gumax® veranda perfectly. The sun shading screen comes in a white colour with silver glow. It blocks bright sun rays, but does not create a blackout under your veranda. 

Gumax® Excellence Superior Coating

Since there is a lot of variety in the quality of coatings used on the veranda market, we want to stress the importance of their quality. Over time, you will definitely see the difference between the coatings. If you opt for Gumax® Excellence, you get a coating that retains its colour and gloss excellently. An excellent matt coating from a global leader in powder coatings that gives you peace of mind. The coating provides:

  • Superior gloss and colour retention
  • From AkzoNobel - Interpon, global leader in powder coatings
  • Maintenance friendly
  • Designed to meet QUALICOAT performance requirements

Effect under polycarbonate and glass verandas

Unlike traditional canvas sun shading screens, Gumax® automatic sun shading not only creates shade, but also effectively reflects heat radiation. This is thanks to the revolutionary sun shading screen made of plastic with woven aluminium threads. As a result, Gumax® sun shading reflect 73% of visible light and as much as 89% of heat radiation.

Effect under glass and polycarbonate

Gumax® sun shading is effective under verandas with glass roofs as well as polycarbonate roof types. The chart below shows the temperature differences between verandas with Gumax® sun shading and without sun shading. This calculation was done in a situation with increasing and decreasing solar radiation during the day and is the temperature as measured just below the roof. This calculation* was carried out under the following fictitious circumstances:

  • Terrace tiles retain a lot of heat;
  • Sunny day with no cloud cover;
  • The outside temperature is 30 degrees during the hottest part of the day;
  • The veranda is enclosed on both sides and open at the front;
  • There is little wind.

The lines in the charts show the different Tuinmaximaal roof types : a glass roof, IQ-Relax polycarbonate, opal polycarbonate and clear polycarbonate. For all roof types, a significant temperature difference applies when Gumax® sun shading is used, with the effect of sun shading combined with a glass roof ultimately being the greatest. * No rights can be derived from this calculation. Because every situation is different, the calculation has been carried out in a fictitious situation. There are many factors that ultimately affect the temperature under your veranda.

icoon lightbulbTuinmaximaal advises you to always open any glass sliding doors on warm and sunny days and lower the sun shading. This way, warm air can leave the space.

Underdeck sun shading

Gumax® automatic sun shading is mounted under the veranda and between the roof beams. As a result, the sun shading screen is not subject to external weather influences and dirt. Combined with the compact storage of the screen, this makes Gumax® sun shading very easy to maintain. Underdeck sun shading often has the disadvantage of keeping heat under the veranda. Thanks to the unique sun shading screen that reflects heat radiation at the top, Gumax® sun shading counteracts this. As a result, the temperature under your veranda is significantly lower than with standard verandas with a canvas screen.

Operation

Gumax® automatic sun shading is easily operated with the remote control supplied. The electric motors of the sun shading strips can be controlled both collectively and individually. This is possible up to as many as 16 individual lanes. You can also stop the sun shading at any position. This allows you to create shade in the desired areas under your veranda.
