Semi Cassette Awnings

Semi-Cassette awnings explained

Not to be confused with open cassette awnings, the semi cassette still offers varying degrees of protection to the fabric although the arms do not retract into this type of cassette.

Not having to work within the constraints of the closed cassette size semi cassette awnings can offer more in terms of extended arm sizes, gas strut supports, lighting and other add ons that would not be possible on full casette awnings.

Samson Awnings & Terrace Covers supply and install a large variety of different semi cassette patio awnings models for different purposes we aim to explain them for your benefit.

These awnings can have any of 2 types of operation gear. An awning can either be chain-driven or powered by a gas piston.

The Markilux 1500 is a gas-piston powered semi-cassette awning renowned for its strong, sturdy construction. This awning can reach a width of 6m and a projection reach of 3.5m.

The gas-piston arms work in unison with the knuckle arms to keep both the fabric and frame impressively taut and sturdy even when the awning is not fully opened.

The top gutter consists of a brush element to clean the awning meaning very little maintenance is required – perfect for busy families!

The Markilux 1600 semi-cassette awning is identical to the Markilux 1500, but has a few subtle differences.

Similar to the Markilux 1500, this awning is available with tilting halogen lights in the Markilux 1650 model to provide a peaceful ambience and allow you to enjoy your awning into the night.

The Markilux 1600 & Markilux 1650 models can reach a width of 6.5m and have a projection reach of up to 4m. This is due to the chain twin-link folding arms providing more strength.

The Markilux 1710 and its twin the Markilux 1710 Stretch are both striking in appearance with there torque bar and fabric roller tube seem to fuse into one at the droplet-shaped roller tube support bracket.

The extremely sturdy awning construction provides perfect stability and winding perfection – even when large areas have to be shaded.

Thanks to the special folding arm technology Markilux 1710 Stretch offers a larger projection than width.

This semi-cassette awning comes from the Dutch manufacturers Verano, who offer a range of awnings for different budgets and applications.

This particular awning, the Porto, is perfect for domestic gardens to create a sheltered area in your outdoor space.

Available as manual or automatic, with hundreds of fabric options, the Porto delivers reliability with functionality.

The Weinor Semina is a semi-cassette awning.

This patio awning is targeted at people who place less importance on the need for a vertical valance to protect against low sun. Instead of having a valance on the front, the Weinor Semina has a larger front profile which houses a guttering system to allow rainwater to drain off the side of the awning.

The fabric and operating mechanism are well-protected, almost fully covered, due to Weinor’s enforced closure with tilting arm joint and stop cam.
