One of the most beautiful. Far and wide.

A semi-cassette awning that meets the highest demands: the markilux 1600 This awning won the IF product design award for its harmonious, semi-circular design. And it looks unique when it’s fully extended, too. As a semi-cassette awning, the markilux 1600 is open underneath. The top cover profile adapts itself to the angle of pitch of the awning and closes completely flush with the front profile when retracted, which protects the cover safely from rain. Take a look around your neighbourhood: your awning is probably the most beautiful far and wide.

The advantages of a semi-cassette awning over an open awning are obvious: covers protect folding arms and the awning cover from three directions – from above, from the left and from the right. This means that neither rain nor dirt can enter the cassette from the sides and the awning is well protected. Read about all the other features of the markilux 1600 here:

  • Maximum size: up to 710 x 400 cm (awning width x projection)

  • The folding arms of the awning are available both with a twin steel-link chain and with an extra-long-lasting and quiet bionic tendon.

  • The markilux 1600 folding-arm awning can be extended with markilux shadeplus. This extendible vertical awning cover in the front profile protects your eyes when the sun is low as well as keeping out inquisitive glances.

  • You are interested in shading a larger area than say 4 x 3 m? The markilux 1600 semi-cassette awning can also be used as part of a connected system.

  • The markilux 1600 stretch allows more projection than width and is therefore ideal for narrow niches, balconies and patios.

If you want, you can have your new markilux 1600 fitted with the following features:

  • Control your electric semi-cassette awning with a smartphone or tablet thanks to the optional intelligent Somfy TaHoma Switch home system application.

  • The vibrabox, sunlight sensors as well as the light and wind sensors automatically control your awning in strong winds and according to the intensity of the sun.

  • Motor and radio remote control for even more convenience.
