Effective protection against UV radiation. 

The importance of protecting ourselves from harmful UV rays affects all of us and Markilux know how important it is for customers to know just how many harmful UVA and UVB rays wil pass through their products. The good news is that Markilux fabrics in dark colours are 100 percent effective against UV radiation. The lighter colours, including plain white stop up to 97 percent of UV radiation.

More attractive appearance due to bonded fabrics.

Markilux use an ultrasonic bonding process to improve the appearance and life-span of the fabric. Bonding the fabric means that the panel joints are impermeable to light and water and resistant to changes in tempreture. In addition, bonding avoids the problem of premature ageing of the thread as a result of UV radiation and weathering.

Sunsilk snc.

Sunsilk snc covers are made of refined high-tech polyester, due to its reliabilty and versatility as a fibre. A sunsilk cover allows sunlight to pass through better than acrylic fabrics and are considerably lighter, making colours look more vibrant and helping to create a sunny atmosphere, even on a cloudy day. Compared to acrylic fabrics, Sunsilk has a higher number of yarns per cm, making the surface flatter. This smooth surface has been finished in a way that it is more difficult for dirt to accumulate and any soiling is quite simply washed away using water.

Sunsilk snc combines ultra-modern appearance with an outstanding technical specification: durable, colourfast, and resilient and with self-cleaning effect.

The sunsilk covers come in seven summery and fresh colour families and delicate tone-in-tone fabric patterns.

Sunsilk perla FR

A collection of coated fabrics with a milky white underside. The fabric is waterproof and highly flame retardant and should be used where fire safety regulations are in place and if protection from wet weather is a priority.


An additional aluminium coating reflects heat even more effectively, even before it can enter the conservatory.
This light and air-permeable fabric woven using a special technique is pleasantly transparent and reduces the possibility of water troughs forming, which would put extra strain on the cover. A high-grade Teflon coating offers tried and tested protection from soiling and gives the fabric its water-repellent properties.

Vuscreen FR

It protects against reflected light. It has a permanent flame-retardant FR coating and provides the highest degree of technical safety in those areas where protection against a possible outbreak of fire is required.

Vuscreen ALU

It protects against reflected light. Particles of aluminium on the fibres of this easily-cared-for, high-tech polyester fabric provide a pleasant ambient climate by reflecting heat in the form of long-wave infra-red radiation.
