Modern & Innovative Awning Technology
The Markilux 6000's innovative properties can be found in each of the three ranges (detailed below), each of which is made to measure for your own specifications. The three ranges are segregated by their colour schemes and style, making the selection of a colour scheme that suits your home and garden easier than ever.
Markilux 6000 Club
The 'Club' range consists of wonderfully bright and fresh colours that are perfect for those that want their awnings to make a colourful statement, working excellently to brighten up your outdoor space. In addition to the bright fabric covers, the cassettes of the 'Club' range are outlined with a colour (or no colour) of your choice, available to match the fabric awning if desired.
Markilux 6000 Studio
If you require an retractable awning that subtly suits the aesthetic of your patio and garden, the 'Studio' range contains the awning aesthetic for you. Consisting of shades of greens, blues, oranges and browns, your awning can beautifully become a part of the architecture, whether it is mirroring the shade of your brickwork or even your lawn. The glossy chrome frames of the cassette match your chosen fabric shade, created a wonderfully harmonised and complete appearance.
Markilux 6000 Lounge
Your patio, balcony or garden is sure to be complemented by an awning from the 'Lounge' range if you are the owner of a beautifully exquisite property. Offering an exclusive appearance, this durable awning model consists of a range of colours that showcase a subtle yet effective level of class; blues, yellows and oranges can be accompnied by the cassettes being crafted with wood effect or stainless steel webbing covers. If you wish to create the perfect accent, and the perfectly unified aesthetic, choose the 'Lounge' range.
The 6000 allows for coupling, meaning that two awnings can be installed directly next to eachother, a perfect solution for various commercial applications where a larger shading space is required.
The Markilux 6000 is an award winning, flagship model, full cassette awning and offers nearly every option possible for a retractable awning including LED lights, ShadePlus drop down valance, silentec motor drive. These desirable features are also in addition to optional designer end caps for additonal design features, as well as the bionic tendon which is actually a standard feature. This is truly a class awning for the very discerning buyer, an awning for the designer home.
New arm technology for the Markilux 6000 awnings, the so-called bionic tendon creates a friction free and virtually noiseless folding of the arms.

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. Samson can provide a full service if required for most parts of the UK mainland. Please call for details.
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 reuqired for installation will vary in their positions depending on the awning model and the overall 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.
