Award Winning Style
If you are the owner of a Markilux 1600 awning, you are being shaded from the sunlight with elegance of an award winning, industry-leading standard.
The effortless style of the semi-cassette awning has been credited with the highly prestigious IF product design award, paying homage to its true quality and excellent craftmanship.
The automated version of the 1600 allows for the easiest and smoothest operation; when the sun is proving too strong, at a press of a button the awning will operate and offer that much needed shading. The polished chrome fittings equipped to the awning's front profile enhance the overall sleek aesthetic, and with various additional features such as spotlights and awning covers, the very smartest of appearances can be achieved to complement your outdoor living space.
Markilux 1600 Details
The Markilux 1600 has a round 50mm torque bar and is extremely resistant to twist and deflection. The roller tube is 85mm in diameter, whilst the awning is equipped with a double steel-link chain.
The coverboard is fitted with a brush which removes most of the dirt and debris as the awning is being retracted. The coverboard adapts itself to the pitch of the awning automatically thanks to a unique and patended mechanism so that there is no gap between the coverboard and the front profile.
The maximum width of the awning is 710cm. The maximum projection is 400cm.

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!
