Benefits of Markilux
While we are happy to fit any brand of the garden awning at your home, we couldn’t recommend Markilux more highly. Markilux awnings are weather-resistant, robust and extremely versatile. The Markilux MX1 alone has been presented with three design awards for its innovation in design, reflective of the pioneering nature of the Markilux range. They include intelligent features and offer heat protection, sunscreen and weather protection to make outdoor living a dream come true.
If you love sitting in your garden, having some shade is essential. Our domestic awnings and electric patio awnings allow you to enjoy a fresh breeze and a garden view while giving you the cover you need to stay out of the midday sun. With our unpredictable British weather, waterproof awnings provide you with a covered outdoor space come rain or shine. Thanks to the high quality of our sun awnings, you’ll now be able to protect your beautiful patio furniture from unpredictable weather as well.
Can you use an awning in the rain – are they waterproof?
Awnings can provide protection from the rain, but the extent to which they can do so depends on the model you choose. Retractable awnings and pergolas can be installed with water-resistant fabrics which offer a degree of water protection. However, please bear in mind that your awning can become damaged if used under heavy rainfall.
The material used is important in the weather resistance of your awning or pergola. Canvas awnings can become saturated with water and damaged over time, but synthetic waterproof fabrics such as polyester or acrylic can be used in the rain. If you have a retractable awning, ensure that the material you choose is compatible.
Awnings can be fitted with weather sensors to offer added protection against bad weather, and we can advise you on the best models to choose if you want an extra layer of waterproof protection such as for commercial use.
