perfotex | the functional

Markilux' tried and trusted perfotex alu fabric for conservatory & pergola awnings has been given a new lease of life by combining the high-tech sunsilk polyester fabric with a revolutionary aluminium pigmentation finish which improves heat reflection giving a cooler environment under your awning. This light and air-permeable fabric, woven using a special technique, is pleasantly transparent and reduces the possibility of water troughs forming thanks to the openly woven structure allowing water drainage. A high-grade Teflon finish protects perfotex alu from soiling, water and the added benefit of being weather and rot proof.
