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.
If you have no requirements for electric operation, the manual version of the 6000 also offers smooth and easy operation, a very viable choice.
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.

Installation Instructions available on request.
Any of the Markilux awnings require at least two 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!
