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.
