markilux folding arm awnings.

Classic. Elegant. Timeless. Whether for the terrace or the balcony, when it comes to shading your favourite place, folding arm awnings are indispensable.

Thereby the folding-arm awnings belong to the absolute classics among the awnings and most people automatically associate a folding-arm awning under the broad term of awnings. the folding-arm awning owes its name to its intelligent mechanical folding technology, in which the awning cover is rolled out and tensioned by two or more folding arms.

Based on the design, a distinction is made between open folding-arm awnings, semi-cassette and cassette awnings.

Cassette awnings

When the awning is retracted, the cassette completely encloses the awning fabric and the technology and protects them perfectly from wind and weather. Our first-class cassette awnings are produced in Germany - and are in demand worldwide. As a premium manufacturer, we offer you awnings of the best possible quality, with sophisticated technology and an inimitable design.

With semi-cassette awnings from markilux, clever details provide stylish accents. For example, the markilux 1600 can be upgraded with gloss chrome elements.

Since markilux produces individual design awnings on request and the various awning models are specialised for the most diverse areas of application, it is not possible to define exactly which is the best folding arm awning.

A folding arm awning has two or more folding arms. It also has a fabric shaft and a drop profile. A fabric is stretched between the fabric shaft and the front profile with the help of the folding arms. These can be retracted and extended by means of an electric drive or a hand crank. A valance often forms the end of very classic models.
