Fixture options for folding-arm awnings
The markilux folding arm awnings are characterized by a high level of flexibility when it comes to installation. With many models, wall, rafter and ceiling mounting is possible.
Face fixture Face fixture is the classic way of installing a folding-arm awning to a building. To do so, fixture materials are inserted into the substrate and the awning is firmly screwed to them. Special fixture materials are available in the market for thermal composite systems. Face fixture is available for all our folding-arm awnings.
Top and roof timber (eaves) fixture If face fixture is not feasible or expedient, the awning can also be fixed to the soffit (top fixture). Special brackets are installed directly onto the soffit for this purpose. An awning can also be attached to the roof timbers if these are strong enough.
Reveal fixture Reveal fixture is suitable for installation situations where space is limited. Here, the awning is inserted into existing or newly created reveals and thus "merges" with its surroundings when retracted.
Fixture options for awning systems
markilux offers you various fixture options for your pergola awning as well as your free-standing awning system. Two types of installation are possible here, depending on the awning model and the surface: fastening in a foundation ("fix") or with weight boxes ("flex").
Foundations It makes good sense to use foundations for free-standing awning systems without a wall connection. Along with conventional concrete foundations, we also offer Krinner ground screws.
Stabilization boxes and markilux mobilfix If the posts of the awning system cannot be firmly anchored to foundations in the ground, stabilization boxes can also be used for some models. These anchor the system firmly to the ground. To this end, the metal boxes are filled with ballast which gives ample stability.
The "markilux mobilfix" fixture option offers another option for installation. With this, the support posts of the Side screen markilux 790 are mounted on a mobile granite plate. This type of installation offers a high degree of flexibility and can also be used on substrates such as wooden terraces.
Wall connection Some of our free-standing awning systems can be attached to the wall, making the resulting solar and weather protection extremely stable.
Easy-Go lever The awning-cum-parasol, markilux planet, also comes in a flex version which makes it possible to rotate the entire system through 335°. This makes it possible to adapt the shading system to the ambient conditions.
The special extra: post form and telescopic posts With some of our awning systems, the posts are available in either a round or square version so that the design of the awning perfectly matches its architectural surroundings.
To ensure good rain run-off or offer a solution to the changing height of the sun, our two pergola models can also be fitted with telescopic posts which are infinitely adjustable in height. These can either be operated manually using a winch handle or by using a motor.
Fixture options for glass canopies and conservatory awnings
Guide tracks Both on-top conservatory awnings and our under glass awnings for glass canopies are systems fitted with guide tracks. A closed tensioning system that uses gas pistons ensures optimum fabric tension.
markilux tracfixOne of the many sophisticated features offered by markilux: the lateral cover guidance system without a gap between the awning cover and the guide track. Gives an overall better appearance and improves wind stability.
