As spring approaches, it’s no surprise that many Australians are once more turning their attention to that much talked about lifestyle addition, the outdoor room. Alfresco living is becoming increasingly alluring as the old-school back yard morphs into something a little more versatile and sophisticated, and adding the latest awnings or shade structures to your exterior space is key to creating this vibe.
German engineered, the Markilux 970 is a relatively new release and is well suited to the task of turning your outside living area into a second living room. The design can enhance your summer months with a breath of fresh air in your own private retreat. The structure is compact and sturdy, making it ideal for a wide number of outdoor applications. The cassette shape is practical and aesthetically pleasing, available in a variety of bright colours such as sulphur yellow, traffic red, yellow green and traffic purple. Adding a little colour to your garden and creating a co-ordinated look with your awning’s hardware is easy with multiple cassette and front panel colours.
The Markilux 970 features a slim cassette design 140 mm in height and 260 mm in depth. The front profile can project to a maximum of 350 cm and the unit can be manufactured in a width of up to 600 cm for those larger patio areas. Both manual and radio controlled operation options are available. The awning features smart technology enabling automatic extension or retraction depending on sunny or windy weather conditions, ensuring ultimate protection of the awning.
And if you are not yet convinced, the Markilux 970 even features LED spotlights which help illuminate the space and the colour of the awning for pleasant summer evenings. Additionally, there is an adjustable tilt option to block out the sun from every angle, meaning no matter the time of day, your outdoor lounge can be ready for action!
