markilux front panel colours

The colour combination of a designer awning – consisting of frame colour, awning cover and front panel colour – has a major influence on the visual appearance and impact of the selected awnings. This trio of colours is in harmony with their clean lines and functional design. With the eight new front panel colours for four select awning models, markilux is standardising the configuration of these awnings. From classically chic to fashionably elegant, there are many ways you can customise the awning of your dreams.

Colour is an expression of personality

The markilux screen colours with a matt surface turn each of our four top models (markilux MX-1 compact, markilux MX-3, markilux MX-4 and markilux 970) into individual dream awnings and make a clear design statement for contemporary outdoor living. markilux frame colours (standard) are also available as screen colours.

By choosing one of the eight screen colours with one of the seven frame colors and one of over 200 cover patterns, you can create your own personal colour combination.
