Uniform solar shading contributes to an attractive cityscape
In order to make city centers visually appealing, urban planners are increasingly focusing on creating a uniform appearance. When it comes to shading public spaces or shopping centers, our awning systems offer high-quality solutions that meet individual requirements. Our planning service for the project business - markilux project - supports local authorities in finding the right solution for their city center design from our special product range. Whether shop window sun protection or shade in the park: sunshade systems are indispensable in many public spaces.
Design according to plan - adapted to municipal architecture
Public spaces have their own rules, as most local authorities have very clearly defined how public spaces should be designed. With this in mind, it makes sense to consider sun shading systems from the very beginning of the urban planning process. The variety of models and different frame and fabric colors allow for an individual look that contributes to an aesthetic appearance. Integrated into or adapted to the architecture of the building, the result is a harmonious overall appearance.
Better shopping experience thanks to shade in the pedestrian zone
On hot days, people are often sluggish and have little motivation to go shopping. Those who do find their way to the pedestrian zone are often just looking for an ice cream to refresh themselves in the heat. To ensure that the trip into the city doesn't end after a visit to the ice cream parlor, markilux project works with city planners to design a solution, because with the right shading concept, shopping streets become a lively hotspot even in summer. Shop window sun protection also offers the advantage that, in addition to providing heat protection, it can also serve as advertising space. Simply have the awning cover printed and benefit from the branding.
Protection from overheating in the city center
In city centers, the proportion of green areas is often low, so it heats up quickly. The risk of overheating is high and even overnight it does not cool down properly. To ensure that cities remain attractive despite this, it is advisable to design a holistic solar shading concept for shading large inner-city areas. Our planning service for large-scale projects markilux project is the right choice for a cooperative partnership. We advise local authorities on customized sun shading solutions for public spaces.
