Semi-cassette awnings open downwards and are therefore suitable for installation locations where all-round protection with a full cassette is not required. With semi-cassette awnings from markilux, clever details provide stylish accents. For example, the markilux 1600 can be upgraded with gloss chrome elements.
Visible folding arms when closed
An open awning does not have a cassette at all. The mechanism and fabric shaft are openly visible. With their modern and functional design, open awnings bring new verve and style to your balcony or terrace.
Perfect also for smaller locations

The pergola awnings impress with their stable construction. This makes them particularly suitable for large areas.

With the large product selection in the patio awning category, the question "Which awning is the best?" often arises. Even though the question of the best awning for patios cannot be answered in a blanket manner, there are clues that should be considered when choosing an awning. When looking for sun protection for patios, you should consider the following factors:
If the awning is exposed to strong winds, a pergola model is the best solution. They can withstand stronger gusts by being attached to the house wall and by additional columns in the ground.
If the terrace has a roof or conservatory, under-glass awnings or on-glass awnings can be installed.
If there is a roof projection, open folding arm awnings are an option. The fabric and folding arms are protected by the projection.
If there is no protective roof projection, a half or full cassette awning should be used.
On some façades, a recessed awning is feasible.
In addition to providing shade from above, side awnings can be installed on the terrace to provide lateral sun protection, wind protection or privacy.
If attachment to the façade is not possible or desirable, in many cases awning systems anchored to the ground or free-standing (double) awnings can also be realised.
Which awning is suitable for a terrace?
The choice of the appropriate awning model depends on various factors. Patio awnings can be customised and adapted to the size of the patio. Depending on the orientation of the patio, the size of the awning can be custom-configured.
I am looking for a small awning for the terrace. Which models are suitable?
Of course, we also offer awnings for small terraces. 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 terraces?
Of course we also offer awnings for large terraces. Depending on the desired dimensions, different awning models come into question. Some models basically offer the option of large widths and projections. In addition, many awnings can be linked together so that even larger areas can be shaded. To determine the area to be shaded, you are welcome to contact a markilux specialist partner who will take measurements on site and find the right awning for you.
What does a patio awning cost?
Every markilux patio awning is individually planned and made to measure, so it is not possible to quote general prices. Depending on the model, size and additional features such as heat, light or shade plus, the price for your dream awning can vary. It is best to ask a qualified markilux specialist partner for advice in a personal consultation. Your local specialist partner is the right contact for questions about awning prices and costs for professional installation.
