Markilux Pergola Retractable Awning System and 790 Side Screen, Northamptonshire.
This Markilux Pergola retractable awning and Markilux 790 side screen combo were installed by Samson for a delightful couple from Market Harborough in summer 2015.
The customers visited our showroom as they wanted to create an outdoor covered area for entertaining friends in the warmer months of the year.
The Pergola system provides shade from the sun, and creates a covered al fresco dining area, whereas the 790 side screen provides added privacy and protects from cool breezes. One of the great benefits of the Pergola 110 is its ability to deal with higher wind speeds and rainfall over a traditional awning system without supports.
Functionality from Markilux
The Pergola 110 is a fully retractable fabric roof awning with a permanent fixed high quality aluminium structure to offer additional support for the fabric cover and allow it to offer overhead protection as well as vertical protection. It is high quality cover fabric guided by a track system allowing it to project much further than a normal retractable awning – extensions of up to 6m are possible. The fabric rolls away neatly when not in use into a stylish aluminium fully covered cassette and protects the fabric during the winter months when not in use.
The Markilux 790 is a fully cassetted pull out side blind awning which discreetly retracts into a vertical aluminium case to remain protected and hidden from view when not in use. It can be fitted comfortably without any difficulties using universal fastening points. The fixture post can either be fastened within a ground sleeve or secured using a side blind footplate.
This couple choose Anthracite Metallic 5204 framework and a Natural Beige fabric (Sunsilk 32449) to complement their beautiful wrought iron patio furniture.
The pergola has completely transformed our garden and the fitters were really efficient. Our thanks go to everyone who was involved in the process from planning through to installation, it was just a good experience for us. We have no hesitation in recommending Samson Awnings.
