Markilux 5010 (Coupled)
The 5010 full cassette retractable awning from Markilux showcases a sleek and stylish appearance that complements any outdoor space with ease. Its versatile properties make it a valuable option for both domestic and commercial applications, with choices of fabric colour and excellent durability.
What is the Coupled Awning?
The Markilux 5010 can be coupled together to create a larger shading space, a feature particularly convenient for commercial applications where a greater amount of outdoor space needs to be covered.
The Markilux 5010 awning is a new modern design, consisting of strong folding arms with different upper and lower arm lengths, which give the awning great stability and the 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 design.
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.
Awnings with a width of more than 700cm can be supplied as a Couple unit.

Installation Instructions available on request.
Any of the Markilux awnings require at least 2 people for installation. 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!
