Sitting outside sipping an espresso is far more inviting for restaurant patrons and staff when some shade is provided for the outdoor area. It also means such areas can be used year round when they are protected from the weather.

Awnings from Markilux are designed to provide protection from the sun and rain for many different commercial applications, including apartments, restaurants, hotels, shopping centres, offices and even luxury cruisers. The company's folding arm, conservatory and window awnings are made to measure using corrosion-resistant materials, so they will withstand the effects of weathering from both sea air and city pollutants.

The awnings are suitable for both new and existing buildings. The colour, finish and fabric can be tailored to complement your building using powdercoating from the Du Pont RAL range of colours. The fabric, made from Swela Teflon-coated acrylics or polyester, rolls back into slimline cassettes to ensure minimal impact upon existing fae§ades.

To ensure they are convenient, easy to operate and provide the best possible year-round protection, Markilux awnings can be fitted with a hidden Somfy motor. This can be fully automated to react to set levels of sunlight and wind intensity. The awnings can also include features such as halogen lighting systems supporting up to five 12-volt downlights.
