Free-Standing Awnings For Shade Where & When It's Needed
Markilux offers architects, designers and builders the ultimate in shade solution flexibility with our Syncra Free-Standing Awning System. Free-standing awnings are valuable assets for many commercial buildings--hotels, resorts, restaurants, office complexes, multi-tenant housing units--because they create new, highly functional space away from structures that is protected from sun and rain. Similarly, free-standing awnings for fine homes help turn unused outdoor space into a stylish and functional enhancement.
The sturdy and attractive Syncra stand-alone aluminum frames support either one or two independently operated retractable cassette awnings. The awning baseplates can be permanently set in concrete using our "Fix" configuration or can be installed wherever you like with no foundation required using our "Flex" configuration. The full range of Markilux retractable cassette awnings can be used in conjunction with the Syncra aluminum frames.

Flexibility In Free-Standing Shade Solutions
Syncra "Fix" Free-Standing Shade
For the "Fix" model, the steel support posts are permanently attached to a concrete foundation. The Fix is ideal for larger shade areas and wherever shade is permanently needed away from structures. For large area shade requirements, use the Pergola 110 canopy in tandem with Syncra Fix for widths up to 59.1 feet and extensions up to 39.4 feet.

||Syncra "Flex" Free-Standing Shade
For the "Flex" model, the support posts are held in place by stabilization boxes that are filled with sand, gravel or pebbles. This allows for installation wherever you like, with no foundation required, and the capacity to relocate the shade solution. The stabilization boxes can be set up as planters, fitted with a wooden top or set with seat cushions.
