Butterfly Awnings

Our superb range of Butterfly awnings provides protection from the elements for any business wishing to maximise their use of outside space. This type of awning is a perfect solution for hotels, restaurantsbarsschools and nurseries, and indeed any business with an outdoor area requiring shade from the sun and protection from our changeable British weather.

Fixed Frame or Moveable Systems

Butterfly awnings offer a flexible shade and rain protection solution. The basis of this style of awning is 2 retractable canopies on either side of a sturdy goalpost frame. For permanent weather protection solutions, our fixed frames can be built into the ground over sub-base or decked areas. Or our freestanding moveable system with ballast-type trough boxes offers greater flexibility and can be neatly finished off with plant display tubs or seating areas to make them appear more permanent.

Impressive Coverage From Markilux

Our Markilux commercial butterfly awnings can cover an impressive 96 square metres from a single system. When combined with our pergola system, coverage can reach a massive 120 square metres, which is ideal for al-fresco restaurants, nightclubs and bars, and school and nursery play areas. Business and play can go on whatever the weather. No matter how large or small your outdoor area is, we have the perfect weather protection solution to keep your customers happy and enable you to utilise space to the maximum.

Excellent service from the start of the consultation process to the installation. I chose them upon recommendation from my very discerning building contractor who has electrically controlled Aquarius blinds and awnings installed in his own house. Well, I was certainly not disappointed! The Aquarius team are as friendly as they are professional, which made the whole process enjoyable, straightforward and very rewarding. The blinds all look superb and I can’t recommend Aquarius Blinds enough.
