The powerful arms ensure a taut cover. The round 50 mm torque bar is extremely resistant to twist and deflection, the roller tube is 85 mm in diameter. The markilux 1600 has a double steel-link chain. Optionally a wall sealing profile is available.

The successful shape of the markilux 1600 led to it winning the IF Products Design Award. The elegant aluminium front profile closes harmoniously into the attractive, strikingly shaped coverboard of this semi-cassette awning.

Markilux 1600 cassette detailThe coverboard is fitted with a brush which removes the worst dirt and debris as the awning is being retracted. The coverboard adapts itself to the pitch of the awning automatically thanks to a unique and patented mechanism so that there is no gap between coverboard and front profile.

Choice of fabrics

All fabrics made from sunvas snc and sunsilk snc in the current markilux collection, including the exclusive visutex fabric series, are available. If required a valance and/or a shadeplus can be fitted.


The markilux 1600 is available with a maximum width of 710 cm. The maximum projection is 400 cm. Larger units are fitted with a rolltex bearing to prevent deflection of the roller tube.

The markilux 1600 stretch is available up to a maximum width of 410 cm. The maximum projection is 400 cm. Greater projection than width: the perfect solution for narrow patios, niches and balconies.


Manual operation by means of a stainless steel winding handle. On request a hard-wired electric motor or a radio-controlled motor with remote control operation can be fitted.
