High-quality sun protection for balconies
- 100% Made in Germany.

The best under the sun. For the most beautiful shade in the world. Summer on your balcony.

Designer awnings from markilux not only provide shade on terraces or in the garden, but are also ideal for the balcony - no matter what shape or size. The awning adapts to your balcony area and your needs. On hot days, it provides protection from the sun's rays outside and cools the adjacent interior at the same time. In the evening and on cooler days, it creates a cozy atmosphere and also protects against light wind and some rain. By choosing a markilux balcony awning, you get a high-quality and durable product thanks to the best quality "Made in Germany".

markilux balcony awnings are particularly space-saving. Especially since they disappear inconspicuously in a fabric housing mounted on the wall or under eaves when not in use. The available space can thus be used optimally and the design of the balcony awning blends in with the architecture of the building.

A beautiful atmosphere and comfort on your balcony are provided by the many extras you can choose for your awning. Exclusive cover patterns, smart technology, various LED lighting options and infrared heaters transform your balcony into an outdoor oasis. Paired with movable side elements or external blinds, you create a windless space that promises privacy.

Functions and advantages

Clamp awning

The markilux 900 clamp awning is particularly suitable for shading balconies in urban areas. Due to the uncomplicated installation with clamping columns, which only need to be fixed with a few screws, the awning can often also be used on balconies in rented apartments. This is because, unlike classic folding-arm awnings, the fixing only has a minimal impact on the building structure. This means that the awning can be easily removed if you move house.


Easy installation thanks to clamping mechanism

Ideal for shading rented and owner-occupied apartments

Unobstructed view with full shading

Alternative mounting via top fixture bracket possible

Which awning for balconies?

With so many models in the balcony awning category, the question "Which awning is the best?" often arises. However, the question of the best awning for balconies can not be answered right away. Which balcony awning is the right one depends on individual wishes and requirements. When looking for a sunshade for the balcony, you should consider the following factors:

  • Balcony size: Depending on the size of the balcony can be used different models: For smaller balconies, awnings are suitable for niches and small areas, optionally with the stretch function. For balconies or roof terraces with a medium size, folding-arm awnings or pergola awnings can be useful, depending on the structural conditions. If one has a particularly large balcony or roof terrace, often even different awning models and awning systems can be combined with each other. This creates an all-round protection against sun, wind, light rain or unwanted looks.

  • If the awning is exposed to strong winds, the best solution is a pergola model. By fixing them to the wall of the house, as well as additional support posts in the ground, they can withstand stronger gusts.

  • If the roof terrace has a roof or a winter garden, under-glass awnings or on-glass awnings can be installed.

  • Since balconies often have a roof overhang, open folding-arm awnings are an option especially for balcony use. The protrusion protects the fabric cover and folding arms.

  • If there is no protective eaves, a half or full cassette awning should be used on your balcony.

  • In addition to providing shade from above, side screens can be installed for side sun protection, wind protection or privacy. In this way, your privacy is preserved.

  • If attachment to the façade is not possible or desirable, the markilux syncra can be considered as a free-standing awning.

on shading for balconies

The choice of the appropriate awning model depends on various factors. Balcony awnings are invidualisable and can be adapted to the size of the balcony. Depending on the orientation of the balcony, the size of the awning can be customised. With the markilux 900 clamp awning, we offer a perfect option for rental apartments.
