  • Full-cassette retractable awnings. Markilux’s full-cassette awnings can be opened and closed manually or electronically. Full-cassette casing fully retracts the awning, roller and arms for optimal protection.
  • Self-cleaning fabrics. Markilux fabrics feature self-cleaning technologies that make it easier to keep your awning looking pristine. During light rain, water will pick up any dirt and dust on the surface of your awning. When set at a minimum pitch of 14 degrees, the raindrops will fall down your awning, removing the dirt between proper cleanings.
    Be sure to retract your awnings during heavy rain and extend them after wet weather to ensure they’re fully dried.

FAQs about Markilux awnings

Markilux awning covers are designed with easy cleaning in mind, so you can spend less time maintaining your awnings and more time enjoying them. Here are our tips for cleaning your Markilux awning cover.

  • Dust lightly. Use a soft brush to lightly remove any dust from the surface of your awning cover. Only dust your cover when it’s completely dry.
  • Remove debris immediately. Leaves, sticks, twigs and other small debris should be removed as soon as possible from your awning cover with a light brush.
  • Wipe away stains. We recommend using a mixture of lukewarm water and a gentle detergent to clean any stains from your awning cover. Rinse lightly afterwards to remove any leftover residue.
    Make sure your detergent of choice is mild enough to use on delicate fabrics. If you’re unsure which detergent to use, contact one of our friendly team members for more information.

Yes. Markilux’s solar protection fabrics are made using a finish that repels small amounts of water including light rain. However, we recommend retracting your Markilux awning during prolonged, heavy rainfall to avoid damage. Extend your awning after wet weather to ensure it can dry properly, as damp awnings can lead to patchy markings and moss forming on the awning’s surface.

The “cassette” refers to the case that your awning extends and retracts into. There are several types of cassettes that feature unique benefits depending on your needs.

  • Full-cassette awnings — A full-cassette retracts your awning for complete protection from the rain, wind and extreme sunlight. They also fold in the fabric cover, roller and arms of your awning to protect your entire awning system. Many people prefer full-cassette awnings because of their sleek, stylish appearance when closed.
  • Semi-cassette awnings — Like the name implies, a semi-cassette awning allows you to partially retract your awning and provide some cover for the fabric, roller and arms. They’re generally recommended for sheltered outdoor areas where your awnings already have some existing protection.
  • Open awnings — Open awnings leave the awning, arms and roller exposed to the elements. Much like semi-cassette awnings, open awnings provide limited protection for your awning system and are mainly recommended for areas that already have enough existing cover, such as an overhanging roof.

The right awning for you will depend on the size of your outdoor area and its current level of protection. Open awnings are the most affordable choice, but they provide less protection than semi-cassette and full-cassette awnings. Full-cassette systems give you the most protection but also require more space, as a larger case is required to fit the arms and roller inside the unit.

For more information, contact our team of experts today and find the right awning cassette for your outdoor area.
