Perfect functionality meets award winning design.

This awning was awarded the IF product design award for its harmonious, semi-circular design. As a semi-cassette awning, the markilux 1600 is open to the bottom and still looks unique when it’s fully extended. The top cover profile adapts itself to the angle of the pitch of the awning and closes completely flush with the front profile when retracted, which protects the cover safely from rain.

markilux Shadeplus Simply block out low-lying sun and prying eyes with the additional awning cover in the front profile of the markilux 1600.

Polished chrome fittings embellish the front profile and underline
the design of your semi-cassette awning in a brilliant manner.

markilux 1650 The model variant with swivelling dimmable LED spotlights in the
front profile guarantees a pleasant ambience in the evening.
