Mounting Types

Pikkuna elements are really easy to install on all wooden frames and usually do not require a separate frame

If an additional frame is needed, we recommend using 48 x 48 mm wooden beams, to which the Pikkuna weather screens can be easily attached.

Please note that it is possible to choose the appropriate mounting type for each Pikkuna edge

Turn buttons

Mounting with turn buttons is the most common mounting method. It allows you to mount Pikkuna PVC weather screens on the upper beams and pillars of your terrace. This type of installation allows for the best tensioning of the element during installation, which ensures the perfect final appearance of the result. The Pikkuna weather screen can be removed or rolled up by opening the turn buttons. A minimum of 5 cm is required for the installation of the turn buttons, which corresponds to the width of the edging. Each turn button is attached with the two screws provided. The colours of the turn buttons match the colours of the borders: white, black, brown, grey, and beige.

Installation guide

Using hooks is an excellent choice when the top or side edge of a Pikkuna has to be mounted at a 90-degree angle to a wall, pillar or ceiling. This is usually the case when, for example, the top beam and the pillars are not flush and for one reason or another you do not want to build an additional frame.

However, it should be noted that the hook mounting cannot be used at both opposite sides of the element, because in this case the tensioning of the element would not be successful and the element would not stay in place in windy weather. We recommend that you choose to pair the hook mount with turn buttons or screws on the opposite side.

Velcro mounting

Velcro tape is a sturdy hook-and-loop tape with the loop side pre-sewn at the factory to the edge of the element. With a stapler gun, you attach the hook side of the tape to the frame of the opening and that’s it! So the installation is really easy and fast.

Please note that velcro mounting is only applicable in the case of a wooden frame.

The hook-and-loop tape is detachable and attachable an unlimited number of times. Available in white and black.

Installation guide

Mounting with screws allows the Pikkuna weather screen to be mounted to a wooden or metal frame.

This mounting method is used for permanent installation or when other mounting methods are not possible for one reason or another. For example, when you don't plan to dismantle Pikkuna completely but to roll it up in the summer, screws are used to fasten the top edge.

Screw mounting can be used along with a zipper door that is as wide as the window opening, so that the element can be rolled up by simply opening the zipper without dismantling the edges.

Installation guide

A weight pouch is a typical mounting type when the Pikkuna weather screen borders the floor of the terrace. In this case, a so-called weight pouch is made at the bottom of the element, in which a cut-out weight bar is placed in. Its function is to stretch the element downwards vertically. Please note, that the 10 cm standard height of the pocket is automatically included in the free height of the opening and does not need to be considered separately.
