The best awnings for bifold and sliding doors


We are often asked which of our awnings are best for bi-fold or sliding doors. The good news is that we have a few different awnings that are suitable for wide windows. Read on to find out more about our wide-format custom-made awnings from Weinor and Markilux.

This awning comes with an extensive range of customisable options including frame colours, lighting options, decorative finishes and Shadeplus valances.

The Markilux 1650 Awning is also available in widths of up to 7-metres and is suitable for all-year-round use. Not only is it useful for shading large windows, but it also includes a special brush to remove dirt and debris, making it ideal for owners wanting to use it in the Spring and Autumn and as well as in the Summer. Although it is a semi-cassette awning, the Markilux 1650 Awning uses a semi-circular design and top cover to ensure the fabric is fully protected when the awning is not in use.

This awning also benefits from cushioned infeed rollers to prevent wear and tear, giving it extra durability. Furthermore, we can fit LED lighting, outdoor heating and sun/wind sensors to this good all-rounder bifold door awning.
