Having markilux awnings installed
– all types of installation at a glance

Face fixture, top fixture, roof fixture – these are just some of the options for installing markilux awnings. The type of installation possible in each case not only depends on the architectural conditions of your patio or balcony, but also on the selected awning model.

Furthermore, when you have an awning installed professionally by your local markilux specialist partner, they will also take the relevant climatic conditions into account: in regions known to be windy, they will only install an awning model with the corresponding wind stability.

You are bound to find an awning to suit every installation situation from the large markilux range. Feel free to contact your local specialist partner directly to find out how to have your new markilux awning fitted. When you buy your awning, you can also arrange to have it installed.

Fixture options for folding-arm awnings

Find the perfect awning for you

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").

 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


With the markilux top-glass- and under glass awnings for glass caopies and conservatories the awning fabric is kept under tension with two different types of fastening.

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 tracfix
One 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.
