Markilux Awning fabrics are made in Germany

Markilux manufactures its awning fabrics at its production facility in Emsdetten, Germany with very strict quality standards. A unique dying process ensures that the fabrics are bright and full of colour, whichever shade you choose, and will maintain their luminosity for many years. Markilux also offers special fabrics with extra UV protection and ease of care making them especially durable and able to withstand the test of time. 

Markilux Awnings have bionic arms

Markilux awnings open and close effortlessly thanks to their innovative bionic arm technology. A high-tech fabric is built into the arms of the awning to act as a tendon in the elbow joints. This ensures the movement is frictionless and super smooth. As a result, Markilux awnings are also extremely quiet and the arms provide the perfect amount of tension to keep the awning taut without ever over-stretching it.
