What is a retractable awning?

Modern retractable awnings are designed to provide shade and protection from the sun, as well as shelter from the rain. They are typically mounted to the exterior of a building, such as a home or commercial property, and can be extended or retracted as needed.

How much space is necessary for a retractable outdoor awning?

The space required for a retractable awning will depend on numerous factors, including the type of awning, its size and any specific installation requirements. You’ll need to check the specifics of the awning you’re interested in to gauge how much width and projected space is needed.

What is an electric awning?

An electric retractable awning is a type of shading solution that can be retracted using an electric motor. Unlike manual awnings that require physical effort to operate, electric awnings offer superior convenience, opening through a remote control.

Do your awnings offer all-weather protection?

Yes. Our retractable outdoor awnings have been uniquely designed to create all-weather outdoor areas that are both practical and aesthetically pleasing.

Who is Markisolette & Markilux?

Markilux is a well known business that specialises in awnings and shading solutions. Their awnings are 100% made in Germany and make a stunning addition to any patio, terrace or balcony.

A Markisolette is a type of retractable awning that combines the features of a traditional awning with those of a roller blind. Markisolette Awnings are perfect for shop fronts, hopper windows, balconies and office windows, and can be easily adapted to suit any property.

Do I need a full cassette, semi-cassette or an open awning?

The choice between a full cassette, semi-cassette, or an open awning depends on your specific needs, preferences, and where you plan to install the awning.

If you want your shading solution to maintain its functionality and appearance for years to come, a full-cassette awning is the ideal choice for you, particularly if you’re situated in a location with variable weather conditions. However, if you’re looking to strike a balance between affordability and protection, a semi-cassette awning could be better suited, offering protection against moderate weather conditions. Finally, if you’re in search of a budget-friendly solution that can provide a simple, understated look and protection in mild climates, an open awning could work for you.

What is the difference between a canopy and an awning?

Awnings are typically attached to a building’s exterior, such as over windows, doors, patios or storefronts. They are designed to extend from the building’s facade to provide shade or protection. Whereas, canopies are freestanding structures that are not usually attached to a building. They are often supported by posts and can be moved from place to place.

What is the difference between an awning and a pergola?

Awnings are attached to buildings and are primarily used to provide adjustable shade and protection in specific areas. Pergolas, on the other hand, are stand alone structures with open or partially open roofs that create defined outdoor spaces and offer aesthetic appeal.

What Sizes Are The Retractable Patio Awnings Available In?

Our residential and commercial retractable awnings are available in a range of sizes, guaranteed to transform your patio. When you choose us, our expert team will work with you to create the perfect outdoor environment that offers both practicality and aesthetic appeal. If you’d like to find out more about our sizing options, please contact us today.

How much maintenance do awnings need?

Regular care and attention will help ensure your awning remains in good condition, providing effective protection and shading for years to come.

What Is A Side-Arm Or Drop-Arm Awning?

This type of retractable awning is designed to provide vertical shading or protection. Unlike traditional awnings that extend horizontally to offer shade over an outdoor space, side-arm awnings extend upwards, creating a barrier that can block the sun, wind or provide privacy.

Is it possible to fix the awning onto a hollow brick wall?

Yes, it is possible to fix an awning onto a hollow brick wall, however, the method of installation may differ.

Do I need any planning permission to install the awning?

If you’re installing an awning on a residential building, you generally won’t require planning permission. Commercial properties will likely need full planning permission as the awning may extend into public areas.
