DROP ARM AWNING
DROP ARM AWNING
The drop-arm cassette awning with gas piston-tensioned arms – the awning that gives you just the amount of shade you need.
Compact, square and discreet profile made of extruded aluminium is only 95 mm in height when retracted. The cover is protected from the weather by the cassette, which encloses it completely. For long-lasting attractiveness, the awning has been powder coated in the case of manual operation it is supplied with a stainless-steel winding handle – quality to get to grips with.
robust, self-supporting cassette made of extruded aluminium extremely sturdy, stainless steel side cheek, sheathed in plastic and powder coated operation by means of a smooth gearbox and universal joint sturdy, attractive front profile with spring-assisted closing mechanism – closes the cassette automatically as the awning is retracted gas pistons in the arms ensure that the cover stays taut.
Hard-wired motor operation (optionally with automatic weather controls) for straightforward and easy operation radio-controlled motor with radio remote control for ease of use an easily installed, radio control light and wind sensor guarantees comfort and a degree of safety – even in your absence the telescopic accro bars make installations on balconies possible, where there is nowhere to fix the arms.
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.
The awning is fitted as standard with a gearbox. A hard-wired or radio-controlled motor with markilux remote control operation can be fitted as optional accessory.

Everything is great with the awning. The gentleman yesterday were very lovely. Very tidy and organised. Thank you so much for a smooth seamless service
Many thanks for the good service and prompt rectification work. Your installation engineer was delightful.
Extremely thrilled with the end results. The team were great in coming out to conduct several site visits to insure the right product were selected for our restrictive setup. Both Alan and Julie Beard were exceptionally knowledgeable and professional in their advice to us to make the right decision. Julie went out of her way to insure installation would be in time for an important milestone date, despite the team were down in numbers on the day of installation due to COVID. We were not let down, they persevered and fulfilled what they promised to a fantastic standard. A first class service from start to finish and would highly recommend their services and quality products.
I would comment we are very impressed with your services. We tried a few suppliers but you were very communicative, good value and extremely good service. The surveyor spent a lot of time going through and explaining the options, as did you when we visited the display. The awning appeared right on time and was installed extremely efficiently by the fitters who were courteous, neat and tidied everything away.
Many thanks to the team who installed the awnings - great work and so helpful, and they left the garden very tidy afterwards. The awnings look great!
Please allow me to commend multiple facets of my engagement with Beards Blinds. Right from the initial call to your offices and engagement with yourself, with Yasmin and, most recently, with Alison I have been hugely impressed with the professionalism, courtesy and efficiency that I have come to associate with Beards. Your colleague who came to measure for the awning (apologies for not recalling his name) was professionalism and politeness personified. This brings me to your installers, Alex and Andy…..;-) The guys are a truly excellent advert for your company and their care, engagement and respect for property marks them out as true professionals. In this day and age, it is a real pleasure to meet and be served by true professionals - Alex and Andy fit this bill and I would be grateful if you would pass on my thanks and praise to them. Looking forward to unbroken sunshine this week to prove the worth of my new toy!!!!!!! 😉
