Your advantages

markilux's newly patented silentec technology* can reduce the noise produced by the motor of the markilux 6000 folding-arm awning during extension and retraction from 65 decibels to 40. This is equivalent to reducing the noise of a busy road to the serenity of a living room.

 

 

* Developed in collaboration with the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at the Münster University of Applied Sciences (branch office in Steinfurt), promoted by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology on the basis of a resolution passed by the German Federal Parliament within the framework of the Innovation Scheme for Small and Medium-sized Companies (ZIM).

During extension and retraction the awning motor produces vibrations which are transferred to the awning cassette and cause the unit to be generate noise. A highly refined technology using special motor insulation techniques and the principles of noise-cancelling technologies makes motorised awnings considerably more quiet when they are being opened or closed.

This new technology substantially reduces noise levels on automated awnings, making it not only advantageous for home owners but also those living in terraced or apartment houses as well as hospitals and retirement homes.
