Perk Up Your Pergola with a Markilux ZIP Retractable Outdoor Conservatory Awning

06 Mar 2013 Troy

Our customer on the northern beaches felt a bit exposed under his new timber pergola! The new outdoor area certainly added value to his home and is a great sun trap during the cooler autumn and spring seasons.  But come summer time, the intense sun could make it downright unpleasant to entertain friends or relax with a book and coffee on this northern facing entertaining deck.

After visiting the site and discussing all the concerns, Blindmaster consultant Mark Smith recommended the Markilux 889 ZIP retractable Conservatory Awning.  This versatile outdoor awning runs on a tensioned belt driven frame that provides extra stability in windy conditions.  The exclusive ZIP feature encases the nano coated high tech polyester Sunvas fabric inside the frame to eliminate light gaps and ensures a beautifully taut cover. They chose a Metallic Aluminium frame with a traditional grey and white stripe awning cover to suit the style of their home and complement the recently installed Markilux 5010 cocoon cassette retractable Folding Arm Awnings on the eastern façade balcony terrace.

Sitting atop the existing privacy panel, their new Markilux 889 retractable Conservatory Awning from Blindmaster creates a private outdoor entertainment space and sanctuary to enjoy the coastal view whilst sheltering the family from sun, heat and even prying eyes!
