The Markilux 1650 is a strong semi-cassette folding arm awning with a steel twin-link chain operating feature, however this can be upgraded to a gas-piston operation. This retractable patio awning is similar to the Markilux 1600 but has integrated halogen lights in the front bar offering quality adjustable directional light.
The sturdy folding arms in the 1650 provide a taut cover using the latest awning innovations; this protects the awning cover from wind and makes sure it does not flap, resulting in an immaculate presentation.
The Markilux 1650 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.
Its accomplished awning craftsmanship enables the top gutter to be furnished with a brush element which cleans the awning cover during the retraction process. This means the awning is very 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.
The built-in halogen lights of the Markilux 1650 are fixed with pivots allowing them to be adjusted through 90°; ideal for when the light needs to be focused on a certain area e.g. reading light or just creating the right ambience.
A special mechanism is included to ensure the top gutter is adjusted to match 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 1650 is available in widths up to 6.6m or with a maximum projection of 3.5m. Systems that are required to be exceptionally wide are provided with a rolltex system to prevent the awning from drooping.

The Markilux 1650 awning is available with electric operation with a remote control as an optional extra, however it comes manual as standard with a hand crank to operate the awning. Remote control electric operation is always preferred in larger awnings and has the added benefit of being able to be fitted with a wind or motion sensor designed to bring the awning in and closing if the wind speed was to ever get too high. An ideal safety back up!
