Outdoor Blinds Perth – Shading and climate protection

The WA climate demands a range of different shading solutions and this is certainly one aspect Markilux can assist with.

Whether it’s shading your balcony, patio area, garden or pool area Markilux offer a range of outdoor blinds and awnings to meet all of these requirements.

Free standing awnings

With Perth’s recent heatwave indicating long term temperature rises in Western Australia, it seems shading solutions including free standing awnings look set to be a great addition to Perth homes.

“If you need to protect an area that is detached from your house or other walls and buildings then Markilux can certainly assist.”

Free standing awnings are ideal for providing shade in spaces that wouldn’t usually get a great amount of shade, such as a swimming pool area. Additionally, free standing awnings can be manufactured in UV and heat resistant fabrics to withstand the strong Perth sun.

Protecting your awnings from humidity

Perth households tend to make serious use of their shading structures during the summer months, necessitating an extra level of protection for outdoor awnings. This is why Cassette type awnings are an ideal choice.The cassette folding arm awning ensures protection of the fabric and componentry against dirt and rain.

The cassette housing provides protection to the fabric of the awnings as well as the componentry. When your awnings are not in use, they remain enclosed and are sheltered from damp and sun damage. This essentially provides ‘housing’ to your awnings and there is also the added benefit of an integrated rain gutter and concealed drainage spout for extra protection.

Additionally, if you live in a coastal area, cassette awnings offer ECR – extra corrosion protection.

Also as mentioned in the blog post http://www.markilux.com.au/markilux-four-insider-tips-and-tricks-to-maintaining-your-folding-arm/ humidity can increase the likeliness of damage to motorised awnings so if you have chosen a motorised system, be sure to regularly test the motor.

Alfresco dining

On Perth’s warmer days and nights it’s always lovely to have the option of alfresco dining.

“Adding a Markilux awning to your courtyard or patio is the perfect way to create a stylish outdoor entertaining and living area whilst protecting family and friends from the harsh Australian sun.”

Fitting Markilux awnings to the side of your home allows for easy motorised operation, allowing retraction of the outdoor blinds when you would like a little extra light or the opposite for when you need shade. This is an advantageous addition to an outside dining area as opposed to a fixed veranda.

If you have a larger dining area, the Markilux pergola awnings can be stretched over bigger spaces with fixed poles for extra support and the Jellybean lifestyle awning is perfect for this.

Some great extra accessories include halogen down lights which can be fitted straight on to the fixture for romantic evenings as well as outdoor speakers for parties and small gatherings.

Pergola awnings come in a wide range of frame colours which complement the style of your home as well as being a practical choice for alfresco dining areas.
