The markilux 1700 has won the prestigioius Red Dot Design Award, with organically curved shapes, and thanks to a modular system it is optionally also available with cassette as the Markilux 1710.

In almost playful fashion the torque bar and fabric roller tube of the awning seem to fuse into one at the droplet-shaped roller tube support bracket. The attractive front profile made of extruded aluminium with integrated gutter and water drainage spouts is inconspicuous and graceful. The end caps are also available in polished chrome and offer that optional designer touch.

The extremely sturdy awning construction makes it possible to shade even very large areas safely. The unique arm technology with power transference using bionic tendon made of high-tech fibres with extremely high tensile strength has been fully tested by The Fraunhofer Institute. Available in standard markilux colours, Lounge and non-standard RAL colours. And it is also available in a stretch version so that deep, narrow patios and balconies can be shaded.

Choice of fabrics

All fabrics made from sunsilk and sunvas snc in the current markilux collection, including the exclusive visutex fabric series, are available. A valance is supplied as standard.
