The Markilux 1550 is a strong semi-cassette folding arm awning with gas piston operating features which includes 3 to 5 swivelling halogen lights integrated into the awning.
The construction of this awning is identical to the Markilux 1500
The awning cover is held strongly by uniquely designed arms using the latest awning technology. This also includes an extremely twist-resistant 50mm steel torque bar and also consists of a roller with a mighty 85mm diameter offering optimum strength.
The Markilux 1550 is an award winning awning distinguished with the iF Product Design Award. The practical aluminium moving arm segment of the awning closes together with the attractive top gutter of the semi-cassette to top off a visually and physically impressive sun shading product.
In correspondence with its fine awning technology, this awning is very low-maintenance. The top gutter is equipped with a brush component which cleans the awning cover during the retraction process meaning this awning very easy to clean; perfect for those with hectic lifestyles, a shortage of time or simply for those who prefer one less job to do around the house. A special mechanism is included to ensure the top gutter is adjusted to the awning incline so that no gaps or overlays are incurred.
The individual integrated halogen lighting bulbs can tilt up to 90° offering directional light to make it more effective.
A wall mounting profile is available on request to further provide a visually beautiful awning and cassette.
The halogen lights help to offer a reliable source of light well into the dark hours so that parties, restaurant dining areas, pub gardens, patio use and other applications are not all dependent on the light from the sun.
The Markilux 1550 is available in widths upto 6.6m or with a maximum projection of 3.5m. Systems that are required to be exceptionally wide are provided with a rolltex system to prevent the awning from drooping.
The entire Markilux selection of covers is available for selection. This can be viewed here.
The Markilux 1550 awning is available with electric operation with a remote control as an optional extra, however it comes manual as standard with a hand crank to operate the awning.
