The technology of tomorrow.

Even at first glance, the markilux MX-1 Galaxy makes an immediate impact with its unique mix of shape and functionality. Retracted, the tapered full cassette with a depth of 62 cm makes a deep impression on the observer as a weather-proof canopy that protects your awning from the effects of the weather. When extended the markilux MX-1 Galaxy shows its true magnitude. This, the ultimate in designer awnings, is a pioneer due to the numerous technological innovations it incorporates and its multi-award winning design. The markilux MX-1 Galaxy creates an unparalleled atmosphere any time of the day, which will charm you again and again, today and in the future.

Technology

The MX-1 Galaxy compact creates a canopy by itself whether to protect anyone or anything underneath it or whether to just protect itself the full canopy will be visible. The arms use the innovative bionic tendon for optimal power transference at the elbow joint, this ensures noiseless and corrosion free movement of the folding arms.

The MX-1 Galaxy compact has the second most customisation options of all the markilux awnings(behind the MX-1 Galaxy). To start off with the panel in the front profile is available in five contrasting colours. There are numerous lighting options like an LED line or LED spotlights on the inside of the front profile, LED spotlights in the canopy and an LED line behind the front panel in the front profile. A markilux shadeplus (drop down valance in the front profile) adds protection from glare or a low sun.
