Just as Mercedes arguably produces the finest automobiles on the road, Markilux produces the finest awnings in the world— each with superior materials and technology, German engineering, and old-world craftsmanship to last a small eternity. Each is custom fit and equipped to enhance your lifestyle and property. Markilux North America services the professional design and build trades only. We include complete, personalized service, support from specification through installation, and the industry’s best warranty. We consider each Markilux to be an heirloom piece to provide many years of elegance, performance and value.
Your Markilux shade solution is custom built to your specifications in Germany, carefully packed and shipped via ocean freight, processed through customs and then trucked to its final destination. It is reasonable to expect up to 8 weeks from placement of order to receipt of the shade solution. It is important to factor this timeline into your planning and construction schedule to ensure your shade solution is fully functional when needed.
The price of each shade solution varies with its width, length, fabric and the options chosen. Full cassette awnings cost more than semi-cassette awnings (learn more here). Generally, differences in cassette width matter more to price than differences in extension. Manual operation is lower priced than motorized, and hard-wired or switched operation is lower priced than remote control and sensor-controlled automatic operation. Standard frame colors cost less than custom colored frames. A special anti-corrosion finish for marine environments costs more.
Markilux shade solutions are more highly engineered, elegantly designed, durable, and customizeable than alternatives. Shown below are typical price ranges for our products delivered to your site, with professional installation additional:
In order to provide a price quote for your shade solution, we need to know the product, the size, the color, the fabric and any custom options to be included. Please call our team of Client Service Executives to identify the best product and options for your shade solution needs and to receive a price quotation.
Once specifications and pricing have been finalized and you are ready to place your order, we will invoice half the total, including shipping, before placing your custom manufacturing order with the factory. Approximately 4 weeks later we will require the balance before the awning is shipped. We accept personal or business checks or wire transfers.
Once the order is placed, we take care of every detail to deliver it in a timely fashion. We will keep you informed every step of the way--as your order is placed, manufactured to specifications, shipped by sea or air, is processed through Customs and delivered to your door.
Each Markilux shade solution is manufactured in Germany. We will provide an estimate of the door-to-door cost to ship from the factory, in metal wrapped packing to protect from damage, clear Customs and pay any duty, plus insure your custom made product. Our experienced logistics team ensures the most reliable delivery at the lowest cost to meet your installation time frame. Installation is not included in the price of the shade solution, but we offer budgeting guidance for expected installation costs.
Markilux provides an exceptional level of support for architects, designers, builders and contractors to help specify, install and operate the most effective shade solution for each project. On each specific product page you will find access to:
