The Markilux 1600 is a strong semi-cassette folding arm awning with a steel twin-link chain operating arm mechanism, however this can be upgraded to a gas-piston operation like the Markilux 1500.

Markilux 1600The strong folding arms of the 1600 provide a taut cover using the latest awning innovations. This ensures the awning fabric cover does not droop or sag, resulting in an immaculate finish.

The Markilux 1600 has won awards for being a stylishly distinguished awning with the if Product Design Award. The practical aluminium moving arm segment of the awning closes together with the attractive top gutter of the semi-cassette to top off a visually and physically impressive sun shading product.

It’s fine awning technology enables the top gutter to be equipped with a brush component which cleans the awning cover during the retraction process. This means the awning is exceptionally low maintenance and easy to clean; perfect for those with hectic lifestyles, a shortage of time or simply for those who prefer one less job to do around the house.

A special mechanism is included to ensure the top gutter is adjusted to the awning incline so that no gaps or overlays are encountered. A wall mounting profile is available on request to further provide a visually beautiful awning and cassette.

The Markilux 1600 is available in widths up to 6.6 m or with a maximum projection of 3.5 m. Systems that are required to be exceptionally wide and therefore a ‘coupled’ are provided with a rolltex bearing system to prevent the awning from drooping.
