Many Australians aspire to waterside living, particularly in the summertime, when living along the coastline represents an enticing reprieve from the heat. Overlooking the picturesque vista of the Australian ocean is a reality for some, however, living near the water does have minor drawbacks, such as the issue of corrosion and damage to your window coverings.

If you live near a waterway or in a coastal town, you may want to consider ECR protection, which stands for extra corrosion resistance. ECR Protection entails a process by which the aluminum is etched prior to powder coating. This process ensures the aluminium is less prone to damages from weather and corrosion. It’s an extra measure that ensures your awnings are corrosion free, prolonging their life and keeping the exterior of your home looking beautiful.

Also useful for coastal areas, as well as windier inland ones, the latest tracfix technology assists in stabilising the product in wind-prone climates or areas. Tracfix also provides strong tension within the fabric which means the wind is no match for products that use it. Tracfix products also remove the gap between the fabric and side tracks, creating clean visual lines. Tracfix is available in a variety of Markilux products such as the 8800 tracfix conservatory awning, 879 underglass conservatory awning and the 876 tensioned vertical blind.

Living along the coastline is a great experience, but some like to take it that one step further and live right on the water. For those that own magnificent live-in boats, awnings are still possible. You will need something extra durable to withstand constant contact with water; tracfix products certainly work well in such applications and can withstand high levels of wear and tear.
