Markilux 1600 awning available in non-standard RAL colours.
Markilux patio awnings use high tech water resistant and self cleaning fabrics woven in Germany. Most have achieved the highest possible solar protection factor for textiles (UPF 50+) in independent tests by the Hohenstein Institute.
With over 250 colours and patterns available, from the modern Visutex collection to the timeless Classics range, there is a fabric for everyone. Most patio awning fabrics are classified as either Sunsilk, which is a single woven fabric providing a silky smooth finish and brilliant luminosity, or Sunvas, which is double woven to deliver a softer luminosity. For additional water and fire protection the Sunsilk or Sunvas Perla are available for a 5% surcharge on the awning price.

The below frame colours are available at no extra cost. Together with the vast range of fabric patterns on offer, they offer an almost endless choice of finishes for every awning.
If you have something else in mind, it is possible to powder coat your awning any RAL colour (surcharge applies). This gives you the flexibility to match existing features on your home or, for commercial awnings, reinforce brand colours.
