The unique benefits of the Markilux MX-1 Compact awning are drawing strong demand from architects and designers seeking a shading solution with a sleek, unobtrusive profile.
Regarded as the “little sister” to Markilux’ MX-1 awning, the key point of difference offered by the ‘compact’ version lies in the size of its cassette, meaning the Markilux MX-1 Compact is only 38 cm deep. The result is a pared back profile ideally suited for applications where space is restricted and an uncluttered finish is required.
Despite its diminutive size, the MX-1 Compact is packed with features. Suited to applications where a maximum width of 700 cm and maximum projection 415 cm apply, the awning features state-of-the-art folding arm technology, including virtually noiseless, friction-free operation. The system includes a highly tear-resistant bionic tendon, constructed using high tech fibres for optimised power transference to the front profile.
The awning is operated by radio-controlled motor, while also optionally available is Silentec technology, offering an extremely quiet radio-controlled motor.
Additional options include the Markilux Vibrabox, designed to enable a radio-controlled motor-driven awning retract if the wind becomes too strong; a light and wind sensor (with optional rain sensor) and the Sunis solar-powered sunlight sensor, which enables the awning to react to sunlight.
The MX-1 Compact can also be customised with optional features such as LED lighting or by mixing the colour combination of the cassette and front panel from a palette of on-trend colours.
