Markilux MX-1

The Markilux MX-1's combination of a protective fixed canopy and an awning is one of architectural grandeur.

Defying the previous aims of most retractable domestic awnings, the MX-1 still achieves a compact appearance. With various fabric and front profile colour options available, as well as unique LED ambient lighting, the ideal aesthetic and ambience can be created with your MX-1. 


Experience, knowledge of design and technology, as well as aesthetic appeal and functionality are combined in the Markilux MX-1 awning - a combination of a protective roof and an awning.

Whilst the awning is not projected, the cassette has an overall depth of 600mm and height of 235cm, meaning that it is able to provide a level of shading and rain protection for windows and facades when not in use.

The smaller brother to the markilux MX-1 fulfils even unusual wishes by many equipment features, such as the folding arms with bionic tendon technology, 5 - 25° tilt adjustment via a tilt joint, water drainage via an integrated gutter in the front profile and a multitude of optional drive technologies, colour variations and additional equipment.

In spite of its dimensions, the markilux MX-1 has a fascinatingly lightweight appearance. Its generous proportions and progressive style represent a conscious facade design. The built-in LED lighting options for the front profile aid in making this an extremely functional product beyond just an awning, and the lighting can be used without operating the awning itself.


Minium Width: 203cm at the smallest projection

Maximum Width: 700cm at the largest projection

Minimum Projection: 187cm

Maximum Projection: 437cm


Face Fixing Installation - Other fitting positions are available. Contact Us for more information

The front panel of the Markilux MX-1 is made of aluminium and is available in all Lounge and standard colours.

As an optional extra, the dimmable LED lighting, set behind a coloured acrylic glass front panel can be ordered, please ask for more details of this fabulous feature.

Also, on request, LED spotlights in the canopy and the LED line or LED spotlights in the front profile can offer additional dimmable options.

The Shadeplus is offered to provide additional protection and comfort under the awning by offering a fully retractable valance which can drop down uo to 1900mm and provide additonal protection from wind and also provide privacy.

Traffic White - RAL 9016
Metallic Aluminium RAL 9006

Stone Grey Metallic 5215
Off White Textured Finish 5233

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 offer a full service for this if required, in most parts of the UK manianland.


When measuring up 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 of the awning can be stopped at any point between the closed and maximum projection depending how much shade is required and for this MX-1 model this is done effortlessly with a remote control handset.

The dimensions for ordering awnings 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 combined.
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.
