Awnings: Markilux 990

6th July 2012

The Pole Company has recently installed the Markilux 990 Awning in our Bath Showroom.  This brand new display is a testament to our love of awnings and our relationship with Markilux.    Its the second awning display we have in our shop and we are extremely happy with how it looks!  Why not see for yourselves in our dedicated Gallery item?

So our new display looks impressive but what is so special about the Markilux 990 awning?

Engineered with Markilux’s awning experts and an experienced design studio, the 990 awning is the perfect combination of practical and sleek design.  Sticking closely to the initial premise of designing a slim and compact awning, the overall height of the Markilux 990 is less than 13cm, has a width of 500cm and a maximum projection of 300cm.

In terms of operating the 990 awning all products, unless stated otherwise, come with standard stainless steel winding handle.  Other options include hard wired electric motor and radio controlled motor with remote added too.  If you make it to the showroom we have the latter of the three options installed.  We must say it is great fun playing with the remote during customer demonstrations.

As mentioned in our gallery section, the Markilux 990 has a very unique Sunsilk design.  This innovative awning fabric is extremely resistant to ultraviolet light which is due to its finely dyed fabrics.  It is thinner and smoother than the typical acrylic counterparts found on most other awnings.  It also has a self cleaning effect in rain (where sufficient run off is present) which means that the 990 awning guarantees radiant colours for years!

New Markilux 990 Awning display!

 

As well as the striped pattern in our shop, awning fabric comes in many designs and patterns, so please contact us for details on other options!  The fixtures come in three colours a textured off-white, stone grey metallic, and anthracite metallic.  Again please contact us for more details on this!

So that is why we love the Marilux 990 awning!  It has lots of great attributes which are great for anyone looking for a bit of shade this summer!  Even if the Sun refuses to come out this year the great benefit of the 990 awning is the longevity of this product, which is why it comes highly recommended!  If you would like to look at other awning services please look at our awning section on the site here!

Awning Club

6th July 2012

The first rule about Awning club is you don’t talk about awning club.  The second rule of Awning club is you DON’T talk about Awning club.  Third rule of Awning club if someone yells “stop!” you move onto curtain poles.  Fourth rule, one customer per display per time.  Fifth rule , one brand at a time.  Sixth rule, no discounts, not until we say so.  Seventh rule, awning demonstrations will go on as long as they have to.  And the eight and final rule, if this is your first time at Awning club you got to use the remote controlled Markilux 990 awning display downstairs.

If the reference above made no sense, then maybe try our other awning blog?

Thank you Tyler.

No we haven’t lost our minds here at The Pole Company and created a dual personality personified in a youthful (at the time) Hollywood actor to run an underground awning club that no one is allowed to discuss which in turn will become one of the most single driven anti establishment group of individuals that can change the world in a matter of months (spoiler).  That would be crazy right?  Why all the fuss over awnings?

Awnings are one of the most underrated products in our showroom.  With a name like The Pole Company,  Awnings isn’t the first product that comes into people’s minds when they think of us.  Granted there is a lot of passing interest and even more so with our latest display but we want to take this opportunity to state why we think awnings are great for any home with a garden.

The awning can act as front line protection from the ultraviolet light.  It is perfect for providing shade in your garden which can help you keep cool and protect house fabrics from fading, such as curtains and carpets.  Of course you could pull the curtains shut and we would agree with you, but only when the Sun goes down.  This your life and it is ending one minute at a time so why waste the view of your lovely garden?  Awnings provide great cover which on a sunny day is extremely helpful!

The summer we are having right now you could argue that awnings are a waste of time this year at least.  This however is not quite true as the Markilux 990 awning actually needs a little bit of rain once in a while to ensure it remains clean with its self-cleaning properties.

Most awnings are designed for longevity, so see them as an investment.  Attached to the side of the house, the awning doesn’t protrude much from the wall and doesn’t create an eye sore either.  Each awning, depending on which company’s product is more suitable for your situation, comes with several options as to how it can be operated.  These include the simple manual winding handle, the hard-wired electric motor, or even remote-controlled options.  Fantastic for anyone looking to kit their home out with one so let the chips fall where they may.

That is why awnings are so exciting!  Now you know, and knowing is only half the battle, so please come and visit us to see our awning displays or contact us here! Please also visit our awning section too we have even more information particularly on Luxaflex awnings!!

Thanks for reading and make sure you look at our Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus pages! Now hit me..with that awning!!
