Benefits of Markilux

While we are happy to fit any brand of 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 the unpredictable weather as well.

If you are planning on getting an awning, then this is the place to come. We decided to get one and shopped around. Aquarius was definitely the most competitive on price. We went to their showroom and could see the one we wanted in action. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Andrew came and measured up. Very efficient from start to finish. Done a great job on installing, so thank you Andrew and your team on a great job.

We purchased an awning to provide additional shade in our south facing garden. From the start of the process through sales to installation the standard of service provided by Aquarius Blinds has been very good. The awning itself looks fantastic and was colour matched exactly to the steel work at the back of the house. Very happy to recommend this company.

We ordered a large Markilux awning for our new terrace from Aquarius, which was delivered earlier than expected and installed efficiently in a morning. The pre- and after-sales care were both excellent. We're delighted with the awning, and have no hesitation in recommending Aquarius.

Delighted with our awning - top quality and competitively priced. The customer service and updates have been excellent at all stages - right from the quoting process to the professional fitting - which took place earlier than expected. We cannot recommend Aquarius highly enough.

Blinds (we have both ceiling for roof lantern & bi-fold door blinds) are of good quality and well fitted. It would have been nice to have a call to confirm that the original colour we wanted for the bi-folds was no longer available, rather than just turn up with our second choice.

I like Aquarius blinds. They are helpful and are pretty quick to respond. Some delays to fitting due to brexit but quality is superb.

We are very happy with the quality of the Markilux 970 to say the least. Its quite and when it retracts does so smoothly. Even the fabric is a feature in it self. The fitters Reece&Joe probably do this 2nd nature and was installed with no fuss. Would highly recommend this company.

Aquarius provided great advice on a subject I knew nothing about, the process was timely and simple and the implementation quick. The awning looks fantastic and is a great addition to our outdoor space.
