What is a butterfly awning?

A butterfly awning is a steel or aluminium goalpost structure with 2 retractable awnings fitted either side at the top which when extended form the shape of a butterfly wings providing weather protection whilst being free standing.
The ‘butterfly awning’ principle has been around for years, but only recently has the product been manufactured to a suitable level of strength to provide more than just sun shade. With massive leaps forward in technology and materials we can now happily install butterfly awning systems capable of providing covered areas up to 12 metres long and 8 metres wide!!  A massive area by any standards..
Stronger retractable awning technology and tested aluminium framework systems manufactured from large aluminium profiles all beautifully finished in a choice of tough modern paint finishes provide a great solution for a free standing large outdoor cover for commercial or domestic use.

The Markilux Syncra  provides the basis for a selection of different awnings to be installed with different specifications depending on factors such as projection required, built in LED lights, full cassette covers and so on. The Syncra is the strongest of all of these systems with oversized profiles for super strength in all conditions and excellent durability in all applications.
The framework systems are strong enough to enable the installation of additional lighting and heating systems at a later date.

These large framework systems are best installed onto a large concrete pad in the ground, but also have options to use large weighted blocks at either end which also can double up as extra seating with timber cladding or other covering options.
