Sun protection for public space

Project planning with markilux team : project

Shading as part of urban planning

Especially in public spaces such as marketplaces or shopping arcades, design specifications require uniform solutions for a harmonious overall appearance. With the help of customised shading concepts, inner cities can be designed in a visually appealing way.

Uniform sun protection contributes to an attractive cityscape

In order to make city centres visually appealing, urban planners are increasingly focusing on creating a uniform appearance. When it comes to shading public squares or shopping centres, our awning systems offer high-quality solutions that meet individual requirements. Our planning service for project business - markilux team : project - helps local authorities find the right solution for their city centre design from our special product range.

Design according to plan - adapted to architecture

Public spaces have their own rules, because most municipalities have very clearly defined how public space is to be designed. Against this background, it makes sense to think about sun protection systems right from the start of urban planning. The variety of models and different frame and fabric colours allows for an individual look that contributes to an aesthetic appearance. Integrated into or adapted to the architecture of the building, the result is a harmonious overall appearance.

Better shopping experience thanks to shade in the pedestrian zone

On hot days, people are often sluggish and the motivation to go shopping is rather low. Those who find their way to the pedestrian zone are often just looking for an ice cream to refresh themselves in the heat. To ensure that the trip to the city doesn't end after a visit to the ice-cream parlour, our team : project designs a solution together with urban planners, because with the right shading concept, shopping streets become a lively hotspot even in summer.

Protecting the inner cityfrom overheating

In city centres, the proportion of green spaces is often low, so it heats up quickly. The danger of overheating is great and even overnight it does not cool down properly. To ensure that cities remain attractive in spite of this, it is advisable to design a holistic sun protection concept for shading large inner-city areas. Our planning service for large projects markilux team : project is the right choice for a partnership. We advise local authorities on customised sun shading solutions for public spaces.
