Markilux 1600 Details
As a semi cassette awning, the underneath is open, however it still appears almost fully covered when closed. The top cover profile adapts itself to the angle of the awning pitch and closes completely flush with the front profile when retracted. The cover is completely protected from rain and snow.
The Markilux 1600 awning has a round 50mm torque bar, offering excellent resistance to any twisting and deflection. The Awning has a double steel-link chain system in the arms with an optional 'bionic tendon' system.
The coverboard is fitted with a brush which removes most of the dirt and debris as the awning is being retracted. The coverboard adapts itself to the pitch of the awning automatically thanks to a unique and patended mechanism, meaining that there is no gap between the coverboard and the front profile.
Various options are available that allow you to enhance the 1600 and truly make it your own. These features include LED lighting, increasing your comfort and creating a desirable ambience, whilst the ShadePlus, sunlight sensors and virabox are also available.
The roller tube is 85mm in diameter.

Installation Instructions available on request.
Any of the Markilux awnings require at least 2 people for installation. They are a very heavy single item to lift and the fixings for the brackets must be appropriate for the type of structure they are being fixed to. Although it is possible to install these yourself it is advised to engage the services of a professional installer. The bracket position is also fairly critical for a safe installation and most awnings will have a fixed position for the brackets depending on the model and size.
When measuring for any awning we advise you do try to get as large as possible for maximum sun protection. All Markilux awnings have an adjustable main fabric cover for the angle of the cover. The projection can be stopped at any point between closed and maximum projection depending how much shade is required.
The dimensions for ordering are the OVERALL width of the cassette and the fabric will always be smaller depending on the awning model. The projection is the maximum distance when fully extended for the awning cover and front profile.
The brackets for installation will vary in their positions depending on the awning model and the width required.
2 brackets are the minimum, with up to 8 required on very large awnings.
The position is critical and the brackets are usually directly behind the position of the arms with some tolerance on many models.
Please make sure the intended stucture for installation is suitable and if there are any doubts then speak to us about spreader brackets to spread the loads onto more stable sections if possible.
