Small encyclopedia of awnings

Here you will find a synopsis of the construction of an awning and the various options available to you.

1. Valance

The valance is attached to the front profile of the awning and is - as a rule - an extension of the fabric used to make the awning cover. markilux offers you the choice of four different valance shapes; the one you choose is  completely up to you. Here you can get a preview of our different valance shapes.

2. Front profile

The front profile can normally be found right at the front of an awning. The outer end of the cover is attached to it and it is connected to the rest of the awning by the folding arms. In full cassette awnings, the front profile also neatly closes the cassette and in so doing protects the awning cover from the elements.

3. Awning cover 

The awning cover is the most conspicuous component of an awning. The awning cover influences the atmosphere under an awning even more than the cassette and front profile do. There are markilux awning covers in a multitude of different qualities, which all have their own individual characteristics: water-repellent, self-cleaning or highly flame-retardant.And also as far as the choice of colours and patterns is concerned, markilux is just about unbeatable. Find out here about the different fabric qualities and here about the extensive choice of colours and patterns. On top of that we give you the option as well of having the cover printed according to your wishes.

4. Folding arms

The folding arms lie under the awning cover between the cassette and the front profile and do the job of keeping the awning cover taut at all times. We at markilux use twin steel-link chains or our patented Bionic tendon in our folding arms. And in the stainless steel awning we use gas pistons.

5. Cassette

In cassette awnings we differentiate between full cassette and semi-cassette awnings. In a full cassette awning, the cassette encloses the roller tube with the cover rolled up on it, houses the gearbox or motor and any lighting components that may be integrated into the awning. When closed the front profile closes tightly against the cassette and in so doing protects both the cover and the mechanical components from the elements. Semi-cassette awnings on the other hand are open to the bottom. In addition, there are also open style awnings which have no cassette at all. Just as with the fabrics, at markilux you have the choice of numerous different models.

6. End caps

In some markilux models, it is possible to select your own personal style of end cap for the cassette or front profile. These are available in various colours and materials. An impressive example is the stainless steel mesh that is an optional extra for the markilux 6000.

7. Roller tube

Roller tubes are the rotating, supported tubes, usually at the end of the awning closest to the wall, around which the awning cover is rolled up. It is sometimes also known as the barrel. The more a roller tube sags, the more the cover itself will sag. The objective therefore when designing a costly and complex awning is to incorporate a roller tube that is as stiff as possible. This is usually achieved by increasing its diameter. markilux uses roller tubes with a diameter of "85" mm as standard in its folding-arm awnings.But roller tubes with diameters of 78 mm and 63 mm can also be found in the market.

8. Operation

In the meantime, awnings can be operated in ever more varied ways: apart from the traditional crank handle, a motor with wall switch, radio-controlled motors and operation via Smartphone are also available. Naturally, they can also be integrated into a home automation system. Here you can become acquainted with the various operation options.

9. Brackets

As varied as house styles can be, so the range of fixture brackets available is just as varied too! Whether you need face, top or reveal fixture or are fitting to tiles, wood or external insulation, we can install our awning on your house. This is one of the reasons why markilux only allows qualified specialist dealers to install its awnings. When fitting an awning there is considerably more to take into consideration than just the gauge of the bolts.
