Folding Arm Technology
Markilux folding arm awnings use either internal springs or gas pistons to tension themselves. The connecting component in arms with internal sping-tensioning system can be one or two corrosion-protected, round steel-link chains or the so-called Markilux bionic tendon. All systems ensure the highest operating comfort and a perfectly taut cover.
Drawing inspiration from nature, Markilux developed the innovative bionic tendon which provides friction free, rustproof and virtually noiseless arm movement. This makes the technology in your Markilux more robust and even more durable.
Offer weatherproof all-round protection. Awning cover and folding-arm mechanisms are stored in a fully enclosed cassette when the awning is retracted and remain as immaculate as the day they were built.
In the case of semi-cassette awnings, the awning cover is protected by an encompassing coverboard when the awning is retracted. Semi-cassette awnings are perfectly suited for locations where all-round protection by a full cassette is not required as the awnings are open underneath.
Open Style Awnings
Open folding arm awnings show off cover and technology without all-round protection. They are mainly intended for installation under overhanging roofs, however, they can also be combined with a coverboard.
