Open Cassette Awnings

With an open cassette awning there is no casing at all around the retracted awning. The fabric is rolled up and the arms are retracted, and yet it is all totally exposed.

Due to this lack of protection and the UK weather, the most suitable positions to install an open awning would be under large overhang areas such as soffits or eaves. This will then afford some protection against inclement weather conditions when you experience them, although even then there will still be some exposure.

There are essentially two reasons that would determine the purchase of an open awning – the first being the need for the extension of the awning to be greater than the width, the second is economy.

When the requirement is for the awning extension to be greater than the awning width then the necessary construction renders this awning not able to be cassetted, and is the main reason for people purchasing open cassette awnings.

Markilux 1700

The Markilux 1700 is a brilliantly innovative open cassette awning which has proven very popular within the patio awnings market.

Designed in a seamless fashion, this awning is available with a transparent glass coverboard to offer protection to the operating mechanism and the awning material to maximise its lifespan. This coverboard can be paired with an LED lighting system to create a truly peaceful, ambient atmosphere on your patio.

The circular design of the awning components is very pleasing on the eye, and this is further complemented by the choice of framework colour designs, making this a very visually pleasing and minimalist choice.

Markilux 1300 Basic

It is robust, reliable, and fulfills all expectations: the Markilux 1300 basic.

Strong, distinctively shaped arms and a round steel-link-chain ensure a taut cover.

The front profile makes water run off to the sides.

The pitch adjustment makes it easy to define how much sun would be ideal in which angle. If that is not enough, additional shadeplus finally provides the right amount of shade and privacy.

Markilux 930 Swing

The Markilux 930 swing adapts ideally to all conditions. It is small, delicate and elegant – and especially suited for installation under overhanging roofs, where additional protection of cover and mechanics is not required.

An intelligent pivoting mechanism lends it a particularly compact and flat appearance when closed.

While being extended, the awning remains horizontal and then pivots into the individually pre-set pitch. The windlock mechanism prevents the awning from flipping up in windy conditions.

Weinor Livona

The floating open awning that gets you even closer to the fabric.

Smart technology forms the backbone of the minimalist design of the open Livona awning.

This puristic awning appears to float in the air, with little obstructing your view of all the fabric.

LED lighting can also be added at your request in order to create various ambiences.

When combined with the frame colour and fabric, the Livona is much more than an attractive balcony or patio awning: it is a modern style element for life alfresco.
