markilux Awnings

markilux folding arm awnings or retractable roof blinds are a great addition to your outdoor entertaining area.  

With all of us now spending more time at home there’s never been a better time to install a motorised folding arm awning.  An awning will help make your outdoor entertaining space usable providing your family sun protection on hot summer days.  Entertaining will be less stressful & easier, especially with Melbourne’s unpredictable weather!

As a specialist markilux Melbourne dealer SOM Blinds are able to offer you the entire range of folding arm awnings and roofing systems available from markilux Australia.  

markilux  offer a huge range of fabric options.  Their range includes some really striking colours and dynamic stripe combinations. 

markilux awnings look incredible & are beautifully designed & engineered. The markilux designers definitely have a great eye for detail.

A markilux awning or retractable roof blind will provide your home with the ultimate wow factor to compliment your outdoor entertaining area. 

markilux shade-plus

Shade-plus is an option available on some of the markilux awnings.  Shade-plus increases protection from the late afternoon sun.  This integrated drop-down sunscreen blind which is built into your awning will also reduce glare inside your home, especially good for rooms with west facing doors or windows.


We have a markilux  with shade-plus on display at our showroom in Burwood, Melbourne.  You’re welcome to drop by to see it in action. We can also visit you to show you exactly what a markilux awning will look like on your home using an app developed by markilux.


We also recommend & supply the fantastic retractable roof systems from Australian company Oztech . 

There are many other folding arm awning options available.  Using our extensive product knowledge we can advise & help you find the perfect outdoor solution for your home.  Having access to the vast array of external products available allows us to source the best solution to suit the needs of you and your family.
