Designer awnings from markilux not only provide shade on terraces or in the garden, but are also ideal for the balcony - no matter what shape or size. The awning adapts to your balcony area and your needs. On hot days, it provides protection from the sun's rays outside and cools the adjacent interior at the same time. In the evening and on cooler days, it creates a cozy atmosphere and also protects against light wind and some rain. By choosing a markilux balcony awning, you get a high-quality and durable product thanks to the best quality "Made in Germany".
markilux balcony awnings are particularly space-saving. Especially since they disappear inconspicuously in a fabric housing mounted on the wall or under eaves when not in use. The available space can thus be used optimally and the design of the balcony awning blends in with the architecture of the building.
A beautiful atmosphere and comfort on your balcony are provided by the many extras you can choose for your awning. Exclusive cover patterns, smart technology, various LED lighting options and infrared heaters transform your balcony into an outdoor oasis. Paired with movable side elements or vertical blinds, you create a windless space that promises privacy.
When the awning is retracted, the cassette completely encloses the awning cover and the technology and protects them perfectly from wind and weather. Our premium cassette awnings are produced in Germany - and are in demand worldwide. As a premium manufacturer, we offer you awnings of the best possible quality, with sophisticated technology and an inimitable design.

In addition to classic folding-arm awnings, vertical blinds are also suitable for shading your balcony.

Thus, the installation even manages without drilling, because the awning is clamped.

With so many models in the balcony awning category, the question "Which awning is the best?" often arises. However, the question of the best awning for balconies can not be answered right away. Which balcony awning is the right one depends on individual wishes and requirements. When looking for a sunshade for the balcony, you should consider the following factors:
Balcony size: Depending on the size of the balcony can be used different models: For smaller balconies, awnings are suitable for niches and small areas, optionally with the stretch function. For balconies or roof terraces with a medium size, folding-arm awnings or pergola awnings can be useful, depending on the structural conditions. If one has a particularly large balcony or roof terrace, often even different awning models and awning systems can be combined with each other. This creates an all-round protection against sun, wind, light rain or unwanted looks.
If the awning is exposed to strong winds, the best solution is a pergola model. By fixing them to the wall of the house, as well as additional support posts in the ground, they can withstand stronger gusts.
If the roof terrace has a roof or a winter garden, under-glass awnings or on-glass awnings can be installed.
Since balconies often have a roof overhang, open folding-arm awnings are an option especially for balcony use. The protrusion protects the fabric cover and folding arms.
If there is no protective eaves, a half or full cassette awning should be used on your balcony.
In addition to providing shade from above, side screens can be installed for side sun protection, wind protection or privacy. In this way, your privacy is preserved.
Which awning is suitable for a balcony?
The choice of the appropriate awning model depends on various factors. Balcony awnings are invidualisable and can be adapted to the size of the balcony. Depending on the orientation of the balcony, the size of the awning can be customised.
I am looking for a small awning for the balcony. Which models are suitable?
Of course, we also offer awnings for small balconies. Depending on the installation situation and available space, various models offer advantages for shading your outdoor area. Even if the drop is larger than the width of the awning, there is a solution with the stretch function. With two intersecting folding arms, even awnings with a small width extend far out.
Does markilux offer awnings for large balconies?
Of course we also offer awnings for large balconies. Depending on the desired dimensions, different awning models come into question. Some models, e.g. the markilux pergola models, offer the option of large widths and drop-outs. In addition, many awnings can be linked together so that even larger areas can be shaded. To determine the area to be shaded, please contact a markilux specialist partner who will take measurements on your premises and find the right awning for you.
What does a balcony awning cost?
Every markilux balcony awning is individually planned and made to measure, so it is not possible to quote general prices.

It is best to ask a qualified markilux specialist partner for advice in a personal consultation.
