A windbreak panel or terrace screen makes sure that people on a terrace can comfortably enjoy the sun while being sheltered from the wind. The screens are placed around a terrace to keep the wind away from its visitors. Therefore, terrace screens are also called windbreak panels.
Terrace screens in the hospitality business
Terrace screens are often used as shielding in urban areas. The screens are most often being used in the hospitality business, think of bars, hotels, and restaurants. The panels can at the same time be used to display advertisements. Large breweries or soft drink brands often have panels made that display their brand name. The panels are being placed at catering and hospitality facilities in order to advertise the brand and to boost the sales of the drinks.
Construction of windbreak panels
Windbreak panels are composed of aluminium extrusion profiles in combination with glass, Trespa, Forex, or aluminium composite panels into a kit that is easy to assemble. By means of “blind” attachments, the profiles are assembled and can be connected to one another. The glass panel will be locked up in a rubber profile. The panels are often attached to a steel foundation base that is put into a concrete foundation block so that the windbreak panels are also secured when there are strong winds.
Terrace screens can also be attached to walls by using collets or they can be placed on wheels. The latter is especially practical when the terrace needs to be cleared for the winter or when it needs to be cleaned. Will the terrace stay outside during the winter? The screen can also can stay outside without a problem. The panels are constructed in such a firm manner that they can stay outside throughout the year.
