Through our years of experience as awning experts, we have developed many useful tools over the years that should make choosing the right awning as easy as possible for you:
What is awning parasol?
An awning parasol is the perfect combination of an awning and an umbrella. Unlike a conventional parasol, an awning parasol is more robust. Due to the fact that a folding-arm awning is attached to a support post, a larger shading area is possible. In addition, the markilux shadeplus provides additional protection against low sun. Even though the markilux planet awning parasol is stationary due to the concrete foundation, it can still be used flexibly. Thanks to the swivel mechanism, the markilux planet can be rotated by up to 335° and thus moves with the sunshine.
What are the advantages of the markilux planet awning parasol compared to other sun protection solutions?
The most decisive advantage compared to ordinary folding-arm awning is that the awning is mounted on a stand system. While classic awnings are mounted on a facade, no building is required for the markilux planet. Thus, the awning parasol can be used very variably. The fact that the sunshade can be adjusted to the current position of the sun and rotated extends the period of use and allows shade over a longer period during the day.
Which markilux folding-arm awnings are suitable for the markilux planet?
Most of the markilux folding-arm awnings can be attached to the markilux planet awning parasol. Only the markilux MX-1 compact, markilux MX-2 and markilux 970 models cannot be combined with the markilux planet.
What area can be shaded with the markilux planet?
Depending on the model, areas of up to 18 square meters can be shaded. Depending on personal preferences and requirements for sun protection, various awnings can be attached to the markilux planet.
How to attach the awning parasol markilux planet?
Thanks to the fastening on a suitable concrete foundation in the ground, the markilux planet is a safe and stable sunshade.
Can the awning parasol be moved and adjusted to the current position of the sun?
Yes, the markilux planet can be adjusted to the current position of the sun. To do this, choose the flex variant with Easy-Go lever. With the swivel mechanism, you can align the awning parasol to the sun and flexibly rotate it by up to 335°. In addition, you can choose an awning with shadeplus. This offers protection at lower sun levels.
Can I also integrate lighting into the awning parasol?
There are no lighting options for the markilux planet awning stand system. However, if you do not want to do without lighting, simply choose a folding-arm awning with LED-Spots or LED-Lines. This way you can create a beautiful atmosphere under the awning parasol.
