Markilux 990 commercial awnings – The Hop Pole

Markilux 990 commercial awnings are a small and compact manual or electric  awnings system, ideal for installation to either wall or soffit. The front profile fits snugly into the cassette, when retracted, providing a weatherproof seal. Markilux 990 commercial awnings are kept rigid, when extended, via bionic tendon elbow joints or stainless steel cables in the arms, depending on your preference. Markilux 990 commercial awnings are ideal when there is limited space on the shop front and are available in a multiple choice of powder coated finishes including special metallic variants.  Where required we will powder coat the frame of the awning to any RAL colour the client specifies.

Operation of the Markilux 990 awnings can be with a simple crank handle working through a sealed gearbox or via an internal electric motor which can be operated with a remote switch. Automatic controls using sun or wind sensors to react to external stimuli make the operation even more simple. Integrated within the front profile of Markilux 990 awnings is a rain channel and gutter system which ensures rain water is run off to the side of the awning rather than inconveniently over the front. This installation is the popular Hop Pole Shepherd Neame pub on Putney ridge Road in Wandsworth, South West London.

The Hop Pole is a popular pub in Wandsworth that offers a warm welcome and attracts a large and loyal following of regulars and visitors with its promise of well-kept beer, especially Guinness due, it is likely, to the presence of the Irish Licensee. You will see lots of Irish memorabilia on the walls of the pub and the comfortable seating and old oak beams add charm and character.

A hope pole is a wooden post which is planted in rows with wires strung between them to support growing hop plants. Hop Pole is a also small Hamlet with only about 40 houses situated in the South Holland district of Lincolnshire. Situated  between Deeping St. James and Deeping St. Nicholas, and can be found on the A1175 Littleworth Drove road.
