Reasons why it’s worth paying extra for a premium-quality awning

We are often asked why our premium electric awnings are worth the extra investment. Here we explain a few reasons why you can trust our awnings to work well, look great, and offer exceptional value for money. 


Don’t settle for off-the-shelf awning sizes; ensure you get the best shading for your outdoor space with precision measurements and fitting. Markilux and Weinor awnings are custom-made for your home, and our expert installation team will visit in person to ensure the awning is made up to the optimum size. Furthermore, you can customise your awning with a range of accessories, including atmospheric mood lighting, ultra-efficient outdoor heaters and colour-matched cassettes.

Premium Fabrics

Our awning canopies are made using 100% solution-dyed acrylic with high-quality pigments to reduce the risk of fading. This high-quality awning material blocks glare reduces heat and provides excellent UV protection. It is also designed to maintain its shape and not sag, and a special coating repels dirt and moisture to protect the fabric from the elements. Plus, you can choose from a huge variety of colours and patterns, including a colour-matching service.

High-quality Engineering and Manufacturing

Markilux and Weinor awnings have been designed by experienced engineers dedicated to making shading solutions that work perfectly and are built to last. Bionic arm technology ensures that awnings open smoothly and the ultra-efficient motors are extremely quiet. Premium awnings are also made using high-grade materials and the factories have strict quality control measures in place to ensure that every single awning is of the highest quality possible.
