Minimalist Design

One thing that immediately separates the MX-2 from other awning models, is its minimalist design.

The MX-2 offers a sleek approach to outdoor shading.

Awning manufacturer Markilux, prioritised a minimal approach for the MX-2. Presenting cleaner lines that give the awning a much slimmer, more harmonious look.

Keeping things simple also gives the MX-2 a great degree of flexibility in its application. As it can seamlessly match with any architectural requirements.

Superb Functionality

Made in Germany, MX-2 employs state of the art engineering technology, to deliver a very efficient user experience.

MX-2 is state of the art shading option.

As for shade qualities, MX-2 fabric uses SPF 50+ UV protection. Which when combined with its maximum projection of 600cm (H) x 300cm (W), will keep you safe and comfortable outside throughout summer.

In case of rain, the MX-2 is equipped with a rain gutter. Here the rain quickly runs off of the awning canopy and into the gutter.

Caught in the rain? Don’t worry, any rain is caught by the MX-2’s built in rain gutter.

The excess water then conveniently runs off to the side of the awning profile, through a very handy rain drain.

Watch as rain efficiently drains away from your awning experience.

And in case you were wondering, it works well in wind too. Featuring an integrated lock system that allows the MX-2 to operate safely in wind speeds of up to 20mph.

Flush Connection

Another big appeal of the MX-2 awning, is its slick ability to hide away when not in use.

So what does this look like?

When fully closed the MX-2 sits unobtrusively flush to the building.

This flush connection, allows the MX-2 to slot away very neatly. Which also fits in with its overall minimalist aesthetic.

Room For Individual Modification

This includes LED lighting, infra-red heating and wind sensor.
