The Markilux 730 and 780 small window shade awning is appropriate when the considerable size of a folding arm awning is not practical and it is therefore ideal for smaller windows requiring maximum shade; a nursery room would be an ideal location.
On this particular South London home the Markilux 730 awnings at the upper level compliment the patio awning fitted to the French doors below.
Using tensioned, sprung, pivoted, side arms triangulation of the awning mechanism gives the Markilux 700 series of awning a high strength/weight ratio with arm sizes from 80mm up to 1500mm and widths of up to 6 metres, using split covers which are required over 4 metres.
Control of the awning is by sealed gearbox as standard but all types of automatic control can be specified. The include controls for automatic extension in sunny conditions yet the awning will then retract when the wind becomes too strong thus ensuring the awning is undamaged. Please note these functions will not work if the power is switched off
The pitch of the awning is variable from 14 degrees right down to 120 degrees so the entire window can be shaded. The awning is also available in vertical drop down form. This enables windows to be completely shaded even when the sun is at a very low level. An especially useful option in nursery rooms where children may be sleeping during the day.
