Frequently asked questions about markilux 1700

El markilux 1700 es un toldo sin cofre que ofrece una protección solar fiable para terrazas y balcones. Es un toldo robusto y flexible que, como todos los toldos markilux, está fabricado exclusivamente para usted y se adapta a las necesidades individuales de su terraza o balcón.

The markilux 1700 and 1710 models differ only in a few features. The markilux 1710 is an awning with a cover cassette. The markilux 1700, on the other hand, is an open awning without a cassette. This means that the fabric cover remains open even when retracted and is therefore unprotected from the weather. For this reason, it is particularly recommended that the markilux 1700 be installed in a protected area, such as under a ceiling.

In addition to the frame colour and the cover pattern, you can add glossy chrome elements to the end caps and mirrors of the markilux 1700.

The awning markilux 1700 is one of few models that can be equipped with LED-Line in the folding arms. Depending on the desired brightness, the LED-Line can be dimmed. Thus, the lighting creates an atmospheric ambience on the terrace and sets beautiful light accents.

The markilux 1700 model is available in the stretch variant, which allows awnings with larger draws to be realized with smaller widths at the same time. Due to a special arm technology, in which the folding arms cross each other, a wide extension of the awning is possible despite narrow width. So optimal for niches, narrow balconies or small terraces.

If you want to cover a larger width, it is advisable to couple three markilux 1700 with each other. In this way, a maximum total width of 1950 cm is possible. However, the stretch variant is not available as a coupled awning.

No, it is recommended to retract the markilux 1700 in strong wind or rain to avoid damage to the awning cover or the mechanics. However, the awning can remain extended in light rain and moderate wind.

A wall sealing profile is available for the markilux 1700 model. The gap between the wall and the awning can thus be closed.

The markilux 1700 can be controlled manually or electrically: by winding handle, switch, remote control or app. Integration into your smart home is no problem. In addition to the above-mentioned operating options, there is also the possibility of weather-dependent control of your awning.
