The very popular weather protection system from Markilux now has 2 very striking lighting options to enhance to space underneath this superb retractable fabric roof system. The Pergola has been a great product to provide extra protection above what a normal retractable awning can provide.
The Pergola has support posts and a lean-to tracking guide system to take the awning in and out, supporting all the time from the sides as well as being tensioned front to back. The result is a large fabric cover system with extra tension on the fabric to provide strength against higher winds speeds and the option to protect against rainfall (when the pitch is set to 15 degrees or more), which many awnings cannot do.
The new lighting options for the Pergola are either adjustable spotlights on the cover tube sections, or a diffused LED light line in the entire length of the support tube. These lights come with a dimming option, which gives you supreme control over the light and atmosphere under the Pergola.
LED lights have a service life of around 20,000 hours, with 5W bulbs demanding very little power. As a result, this is a lighting option that will last for many, many years, whilst costing very little along the way.
The new full cassette retractable awning from market leaders Markilux gives even better size range options, with up to 6000mm width using only end fixings, rather than inset brackets.
For a compact awning, the 970 offers some huge size options, up to 3500mm x 6000mm.
This cassette is also unique with a classic square edge and oblong design, enabling a range coloured to front panels to be available.
Other options include an integrated drop down ‘ShadePlus’ valance to provide adjustable shade from low lying sun. LED spotlights can be fitted underneath the cassette to provide an illuminated atmosphere, meaning the awning can be used late into the night.
