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.

Why Markilux

With great standing and years of experience in the shading industry, Markilux offers talent in innovation and design. It is no wonder that Markilux has progressed towards being one of the largest German brand names in domestic and commercial awnings and receiving Red dot design awards on many of there product lines.

What sets the Markilux brand apart from others is the ability to combine both specialties into one product such as technical abilities in design, engineering and the understanding of textiles.

Since the first production of awnings commenced, Markilux is the only German manufacturer of awnings that produce both the metalwork and fabrics of their awnings under one roof. Even though there sales extend worldwide, production still takes place in Emsdetten where the company originated, operating under the guidance of the fourth generation of the Schmitz family.





Innovation Markilux awnings did not get to where they are by chance. In each of there products you will find technical innovations crafted for a particular application. They try to anticipate the requirements of tomorrow and satisfy them today.


Markilux products distinguish themselves through their timeless appearance. Trendy and classic lines united in the perfect products for your home. Reputable designers have succeeded in creating beauty in both the technological and the textile.


Markilux developments are dynamic. They think long term, as Markilux customers should be able to enjoy their awnings for a long time to come. Many of the ideas can be retrofitted to already existing awning types. This makes Markilux products very long lasting indeed.


Function Markilux technology is designed to last for a small eternity. The materials used meet the highest standards so ensuring problem-free operation for many years.


Safety Certified quality from a certified company; independent bodies audit us and document our commitment to quality. The uniqueness of our production facility, weaving mill and awning assembly lines in the confines of one company make it possible to create products that leave no wish unfulfilled.
