Modern Design & Strong Awning
The Markilux 5010 full cassette retractable fabric awning showcases a sleek and stylish appearance that complements any outdoor space with ease. Its versatile properties make it an ideal awning for both domestic and commercial applications, with a vast choice of fabric colours and excellent durability.
The Markilux 5010 awning is a new modern design, consisting of very strong aluminium folding arms with different upper and lower arm lengths, which give the awning great stability and the fabric cover superb tautness when the awning is fully extended. For the ultimate neat appearance, the cover profile and cassette are constructed with aluminium, whilst the cassette consists of a slim oval design. Forged aluminium knuckle joints provide the very best strength in an awning which can extend out to 4m and combined with twin chain link tension this truly is an awning to provide reliable operation and the best stability.
The integrated guttering system allows for even water distribution, along with the concealed drainage sprouts.
All screws and basic components are made of corrosion-resistant stainless steel. The awning can be manually operated via a spring assisted gearbox for larger specified awnings.
The 5010 is equipped with double chain-link arms, with bionic tendon arms available as an option. The motor drive can be a hard wired motor, RTS radio or Somfy IO to enable the use of the very latest Somfy home automation app to control your awning from any smartphone or tablet with the addition of the Tahoma or Connexoon hub.
When an awning is electric and remote controlled it makes it very easy to add controls and safety devices such as a wind sensor. Sun and rain sensors are also available and combined with intelligent use of 'scenarios' you can ensure your awning is used to its full potential but also totally safe when the weather turns bad.

When the awning is closed, the folding arms are protected from the elements by the cassette ensuring they are not overly exposed so moss and rust does not appear.
The Markilux Vibrabox reacts to vibrations. It can be fixed to the inside or outside of the front profile (depending on the awning model) without requiring a power supply cable. You can choose from three different levels of sensitivity. Battery powered so no power supply or cabling required.

Installation Instructions available on request.
Any of the Markilux awnings require at least 2 people for installation, more for the larger coupled systems. They are a very heavy 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.
When measuring for any retractable awning take some time to see where the shading will actually occur as it is always best to try to fit the largest awning possible to truly control the shading. Although the pitch is adjustable the projection needs to be sufficient for your needs whether it is shading a room or creating an area to sit underneath and enjoy the weather without burning yourself.
The ordering sizes refer to the overall width of the awning including any framework or cassette and the fabric cover section will be slightly narrower. The projection is the distance the awning will extend out to when fully opened, bearing in mind when you have the awning cover sloping down the projection will be reduced depending on the pitch the cover is adjusted to. This can be calculated exactly if you know your trigonometry!
