Markilux 8850 Canopy That Extends Wider Than Its Guide Tracks
The Markilux 8850 canopy is an 8800 canopy that extends wider than its guide tracks. This provides a larger shade area and is visually attractive because what's seen is the plane of the canopy instead of the mounting brackets and guide tracks. The 8850 is ideal for use with a pergola, trellis or arbor and for a beveled-edge structure. It offers a contemporary design and unique and flexible deployment options.
Dimensions & Design Features
The 8850 canopy is custom-made to the precise dimensions of your project. The maximum width of a single unit is 21.3 feet with a maximum extension at this width is 13.1 feet. The maximum extension of a single unit is 16.4 feet with a maximum width of 16.4 feet at this extension. The canopy can be extended up to 39 inches beyond the guide tracks on each side. If the installation is asymettrical, the difference on the extension may not exceed 16 inches.
