Climate adaptations in social institutions

The climate is changing around the world, and with it comes a deterioration in the living conditions of people in all parts of the world - including Germany. Extreme temperatures are on the rise, increasing the need for shady places that offer some cooling on hot days. To mitigate the effects of climate change somewhat and make life bearable in summer in the future, it is worth taking precautions.

Especially in the field of social facilities, a well thought-out sun protection concept is of crucial importance. The markilux team : project is on hand to provide advice when it comes to finding the optimum solution for your facility. Well-founded experience in the project business and the markilux sun shading know-how offer clear advantages for the individual planning of your large area shading.

Protection of vulnerable groups

Extreme weather events and climatic changes are often problematic for vulnerable groups. For children and seniors, as well as the debilitated and those in need of care, heat and direct sunlight are a burden. Their health and quality of life can be particularly affected by extreme weather. For this reason, protecting particularly vulnerable groups of the population is an important task for social institutions. Sun and weather protection systems from markilux, for example, offer protection against direct heat radiation and high temperatures. This means that the outdoor area can be used in any weather conditions.

Recreation and relaxation in the fresh air

Social facilities become a (temporary) new home for their residents, which is how it should feel. For the feeling of home to set in, the right atmosphere plays a major role. In addition to a beautiful interior, a facility's garden is also part of the overall concept. To make rest and relaxation outside possible all year round, markilux offers a variety of awnings and awning systems that protect against the sun as well as wind, rain and cold. With individual planning for your facility, the desired ambience is created that suits your house and its inhabitants.

Depending on your wishes, ideas and structural conditions on site, the markilux team : project will support you in planning your personal sun and weather protection solution.

Free space for recovery

Since fresh air also has positive effects on the recovery from illnesses, it is also advisable for hospitals, rehabilitation and spa clinics, for example, to rely on the right outdoor concept. Protection from the sun in summer, from the wind in autumn and from the cold in winter - these are often the requirements that determine team : project planning. The wide markilux product range leaves nothing to be desired.

Communication hub for residents and visitors

In addition to the positive effects of fresh air, the outdoor area also forms a communication hub - both for residents among themselves and for visitors. Together with family and friends, residents enjoy their protected outdoor retreat and recreation area. Outdoor living offers a plus in quality of life and thus significantly enhances the stay in the facility.
