The diverse range of brackets with patented clip system offers individual installation options, from discreet to accentuated. With the various models in the external blind range, any interior can be individually shaded and cooled.

In the upper area, the sun and privacy protection runs vertically; at the bottom, the incidence of light can be flexibly determined by the drop arms. A marquisolette can be inconspicuously integrated into the facade, creating an uncluttered appearance. When extended, this type of external blind is an eye-catcher that underlines the aesthetic facade design: shade provider and design element at the same time.

Alternative uses
for markilux window awnings | external blinds.

external blinds are classically used as window awnings to protect the interior from sunlight. In addition, external blinds can also be used as sun protection for balconies, conservatories or patio roofs.

Depending on the structural conditions of a balcony, different external blinds can come into question - even if a fastening must do without drilling. In this case, our model markilux 730 provides a remedy. Simply clamp the awning between the floor and ceiling of the balcony.

If you have a winter garden or a terrace roof, the first choice is often an on-glass awning or an under-glass awning, which can already intercept a large part of the sun's rays. However, due to the installation on or under the glass roof, only the radiation coming from above is reduced. For all-round protection, we recommend additionally integrating external blinds.

about window awnings | external blinds

external blinds are awnings that are mounted outside in front of the window. They protect from direct sunlight, wind and prevent heating of the interior. In addition to sun protection, external blinds also provide privacy by blocking views from the outside.

  • Effective sun protection: markilux external blind awnings provide optimum protection against UV rays and serve as glare protection.
  • Privacy: markilux awning covers for external blinds provide privacy. While views from the outside are prevented, the view into the open air is still maintained with the right fabric.
  • Textile sun protection for more living comfort: The awning covers let softly tuned daylight into the interior of the building and reflect - depending on color and texture - a large part of the UV and infrared heaters. According to the motto "free view without insight", with the textile shades from markilux you always keep a clear view and are even protected from unwanted glances from the outside. In addition, depending on the choice of awning fabric, you determine how much light shines into the kitchen, living room, bedroom or bathroom.

Sun protection that effectively helps against heat indoors is becoming increasingly important. The options are many and varied. Whether exterior or interior sun protection is more suitable depends primarily on the structural conditions. Where possible, however, externally mounted systems offer greater heat protection. A external blind installed outside the window is more effective. This absorbs the sun's rays before they can enter the building.
