Awnings Protect Your Family & Furnishings From UV Radiation
Sun Exposure Is A Recognized Health Threat
Over the last 20 years, there has been a dramatic increase in skin cancer diagnoses. It is one of the deadliest forms of cancer and it is directly related to overexposure to the sun - and is cumulative over our lifetimes.
According to The Skin Cancer Foundation, more than 1 million people will be diagnosed with skin cancer this year. One in five Americans will get skin cancer during a lifetime, and someone dies every hour from skin cancer, primarily melanoma. Melanoma now impacts one in 50 Americans.
To help protect themselves from harmful UV radiation while still enjoying an active indoor/outdoor lifestyle, more people are turning to retractable awnings and canopies as an ultimate outdoor solution.
Dark-colored Markilux awning fabrics provide 100% UV protection, and lighter colors stop 97% ov UV rays. This delivers UV SPF protection of 50+, the highest SPF protection factor rating available for textiles.
Because Markilux awnings and canopies prevent the sun's UV rays from hitting your windows, they also protect your floors, carpets, artwork, drapes, blinds and upholstery from fading due to sun exposure. Plus, Marilux awnings can be set with sensor-controlled operation to automatically extend when the sun is out and retract when the sun goes down or the wind is excessive.
Markilux retractable awnings and canopies protect you, your family and your furnishings from deadly UV - all while looking great and helping you keep cool.
