Markilux awnings have provided innovative shading solutions to a heritage home in Glebe.
Shading a large double story glass and steel facade and conservatory, a range of awnings from Markilux answered many of the project’s challenges, confirms Troy Breglec of blind supplier and installer Blindmaster.
“These included managing the expectations of the designer, Damian O’Mahony of DOM Design, with regard to the awning product capabilities and advising on how we could meet his requirements for shading the double storey glass and steel facade and conservatory.”
To meet these challenges a number of Markilux awnings were deployed.
“To provide shade to the horizontal/overhead façade, we installed one Markilux 8800 Tracfix conservatory awning and two Markilux 780 kinder conservatory awnings. All were remote control operated and monitored by a rain sensor to retract awnings in rain, and a sun and wind sensor to retract in wind and extend during sunny periods.”
“To provide shade to the west facing vertical façade, two Markilux 710 vertical drop wire guide awnings were installed, each with remote control operation. The guide wires of the systems were secured to a stainless steel static line as no fixture points existed due to a glass awning.”
