How to protect your balcony or patio from wind?

26 February, 2022

Sometimes protecting your patio from the wind becomes extremely crucial, especially in coastal or mountain areas.

Whether it's frigid winds that chill your body or hot winds that don't let you breathe well, a gale is a problem at any time of the year. You suffer, your plants suffer and, ultimately, your home and your quality of life suffer as well.

Do you want to protect your house from strong winds? We have a solution to reduce the impact of the wind on your terrace. From the most economical solutions for occasional use to the most sophisticated and durable, therefore effective.

Various solutions available for wind control

The type of solution you go with depends on three factors:

  • The direction in which wind usually blows in
  • Size of the space
  • Different uses you give it.

If your intention is to enjoy your balcony or patio more when reading, doing daily exercises or enjoying board games, perhaps a more durable solution is ideal. On the other hand, if you only care about a certain time of the year or certain times when you need to protect your plants, you can opt for different solutions.


Protecting your patio from the wind is possible with different systems, some are cheaper and some are more sophisticated. Of course, the cheaper ones cannot withstand 50km/h winds. Here are some options available in the market.

1. Setup a Deck Fence Screen

Just like the term implies, it’s a fence made of very strong and durable net material that is attachable to wooden or metal panels. The fence can run around the patio area to block out wind. Although it might be a good option to blocking wind, it often results in deteriorating the view instead of enhancing it.

2. Side Awning

Along with resisting winds they are normally used as privacy shades on back patios. If you wish to cover all sides of the patio, you might need to purchase multiple awnings and it might end up giving you a DIY look instead of a professional one.

3. Glass Walls

Undoubtedly the ideal solution against the wind. Lumon glass panels withstand winds of up to 350km/h. Thanks to the thickness of the tempered glass, resistance to strong gales is guaranteed. In addition to protecting you from winds, the glass allows the passage of light and does not eliminate the visibility of the terrace, enhancing well-being in your patio or balcony. If your house is in front of a beautiful landscape, this is your ultimate solution.
