Markilux 3300

The markilux 3300 is described as Simple yet elegant.

The robust cassette design and the tight seal to the wall make the markilux 3300 a popular awning for commercial applications although used often with domestic situations. The double gutter allows water to run off to the side both when the awning is open and when it is closed.

The markilux 3300 pur is technically identical with the markilux 3300, yet it has a straight front profile. Download the Brochure here and Quick print here.

Colours and Fabrics

Markilux awning covers are appealing products because of their quality and appearance.

With the purchase of a markilux awning cover you have chosen a high-class quality product. All fabrics are manufactured on state-of-the-art weaving mills. Meticulous checks also ensure that we only ever supply functionally flawless covers.

Available colours

However, awning covers do not only serve as effective protection from the sun. They also have a decisive impact on the colour ambience and hence the atmosphere under an awning. For even greater enjoyment of the colour provided by the shade of an awning, markilux has created an extensive collection of more than 250 fabrics made from innovative, high-tech polyester yarns.

The certificate "Öko Tex Standard 100" guarantees that no harmful dyes or chemicals were used in the making of markilux awning covers. If you would like to know more about available colours and fabrics please call 0800 953 0199 and we can arrange samples etc.

Effective protection against UV radiation

Due to the increased strength of UV radiation, healthcare during our leisure time is gaining in importance. Therefore it is important to know just how many harmful UVA and UVB rays will pass through the cover when purchasing an awning. markilux fabrics in dark colours afford 100 per cent protection. Lighter colours (right through to plain white) stop up to 97 per cent of UV radiation.

These figures are based on research conducted by the Hohenstein Research Institute as well as the manufacturer of our fabric yarns. All fabrics made of sunsilk snc and sunvas snc achieve the highest possible solar protection factor for textiles (UPF 50+). The UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) specifies how much longer one can be exposed to sunlight when protected from it by the given UPF without suffering sunburn. Fabrics with an ultraviolet protection factor of 50+ would enable you to sit out safely in the sun fifty times longer than you would otherwise be able to do without suffering sunburn, if you were to rely solely on the protection provided by your skin.

In order to ascertain the sun protection factor required, you need to know what level of protection is provided by your own skin, as well as the length of time you wish to sit in the sun (your own protection time x sun protection factor = maximum sunbathing time). It is essential to bear in mind here that the sun protection (awning) fabric is only able to reduce the effect of direct sunlight and not that resulting from reflected UV radiation (from water, for example).

The best light and weather fastness values.

Our covers made from sunsilk snc and sunvas snc achieve the best results (marks 7 to 8) when rating their light and weather fastness values.

Bonded fabrics lend a vastly improved appearance.

The ultrasonic bonding process lends the awning fabrics a vastly improved appearance. It has been tested for its durability. The high compression bonding process offers many advantages: Under normal conditions the panel joints (formerly seams) are impermeable to light and water and impervious to changes in temperature. Thanks to its smoother surface, the fabric has a longer life-span. In addition bonding avoids the problem of premature ageing of the thread as a result of UV radiation and weathering.

Awning covers on markilux awnings.

We supply our awnings with bonded covers. If you would prefer your awning cover to be produced with the conventional stitched finish, we kindly request you to state this clearly on your order. Exceptions are covers made from perfotex and those from other collections that are manufactured in a stitched finish for technical reasons. Both stitched and bonded awning fabrics show inevitable differences in colour due to the double layer of fabric at the seams and panel joints - the fabric appears to be darker in this area.

Fixing methods can be one of two:

Option 1: Coach screw and plug – Standard fitting charge

Option 2: Chemical fixing - Standard fitting charge plus £40.00 premium for each wall bracket.

A typical 4 meter markilux 990 awning would have 2 wall brackets or a markilux 5010 at 6 meters wide would have 3 wall brackets.

 

Example 2

Fitting to a single story extension with a low roof line will potentially require spreader plates unless there is 600mm of brickwork above the awning location.

Example 3

This method allows the awning to be sited at a higher level clear of obstacles while also acting as a spreader plate to lower to torque on the wall.

Fixing methods can also be one of two options but we would strongly recommend the Chemical fixing method for this bracket type:

Option 1: Coach screw and plug – Standard fitting charge

Option 2: Chemical fixing - Standard fitting charge plus £40.00 premium for each wall bracket.

Should you need bungalow Z brackets, these typically are charged at £150.00 each
