Great solar protection and great visibility
Drop arms are fitted with optimised stainless steel gas pistons giving excellent cover tension. Adjustable down to a maximum of 140°. Front profile with spring-loaded closing mechanism. Telescopic accro bars are optionally available for balcony installations.
Pleasant shade – but plenty of light nevertheless:
The inclined position of the drop-arm awning ensures that you get just the right amount of light, as there is not only very bright and very dark, but many gradations in between, too. Excellent technology, high-class materials and first-rate workmanship turn your markilux into a highly practical gem on the façade of your home. markilux drop-arm awnings are available both with round (“markilux 8xx”) and also with square (“markilux 7xx”) cassette. What you settle for depends on the structural conditions and your own personal taste.
Design and Technology
The markilux that manages light and heat protection in a flexible manner – any arm pivoting angle up to 140° is possible. Round or square – the choice is yours. The small inconspicuous cassette made of extruded aluminium is powder coated and when retracted the awning cover is protected from adverse conditions by the fully encompassing cassette. It has highly effective gas pistons that ensure low-friction operation of the awning and a taut awning cover. All components require minimal maintenance and are protected against corrosion.
Practical wedge-in accro bars are available if installation on a balcony is required, which can e.g. be clamped between the balcony above and the floor of one’s own balcony.
Choice of fabrics You can choose from all the fabrics in the current markilux collection made from sunvas snc or sunsilk snc including the visutex fabric range. The special perfotex fabrics and the fabrics in the vuscreen range (vuscreen FR/vuscreen Alu) are also available. These allow unobstructed views outside while still offering ideal shading.
The maximum width as a single unit is 700 cm (with split cover and three drop arms). Coupled awnings, consisting of two single units, are available up to an overall width of 800 cm. Different combinations of matched arm and cover lengths ensure individual solar protection, just as you need it.

A painless and enjoyable experience from meeting Julie in the office and discussing our requirements to a site survey and finally installation. All done very professionally and always with a smile. Felt like we were in good hands from start to finish. The result is exactly how we imagined it. Now all we need is the sun. Perhaps Julie could arrange that too!!
We love the awning, without doubt some of the best money we spent. Have created a outside space which we use all the time rain or shine. Love it. Thank you. We continue to recommend your product to all our visitors.
"We contacted Beards for an awning to go on the back of our house last spring . A survey was carried out promptly and efficiently, the order placed and then we were kept regularly updated as to delivery and installation date. The installation team were also good and efficient. It was a pleasure to deal with an established family firm who were knowledgeable about the product, very professional and interested in making sure they met the needs of the customer to select the right blind type and related equipment. We would have no hesitation with recommending Beards Awnings for excellent service and a high quality product and have done so on a number of occasions to friends who have ended up going to Beards for their awning requirements."
"First class service from survey to completion. Great installation team, cleaned up well and took all the rubbish away. Quality blinds & awnings at very competitive prices. We would highly recommend Beards Blinds & Awnings to anyone, including all our friends & family."
"From the the first visit to the showroom at Longacres garden centre to the final installation the service and product provided was first class. I would not hesitate to recommend this company."
"We replaced our 20 year old awning in August/September above the south facing patio doors and selected Beards Blinds & Awnings for their professional design service by Julie in selecting the appropriate electrically operated semi cassette Markilux awning with a drop down front valance and choice of fabric. The installation was clean and tidy and completed in one working day. We are extremely pleased with the end product and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Beards Blinds & Awnings."
