New markilux service: Awnings are now available with the fabric in the customer’s favourite colour

Awnings are now available with the fabric in the customer’s favourite colour

People love colours. Colours have more influence on our lives than we realise, and a favourite colour can quickly cause our personal well-being barometer to rise. For this reason, we clothe ourselves in certain colour shades or decorate our residences with them. As of now, it is even possible to obtain the awning fabric for a patio in a customer’s desired colour shade on purchasing a markilux awning.

How would it be to lie beneath a mint-green awning fabric? Or perhaps you might prefer a blackberry-coloured awning? Or maybe a lemon-yellow one? No problem – at markilux, you can have each and every awning fabric individually dyed to your specification. 1,625 colours from the RAL design swatches are available for selection. markilux, the awning specialist, offers this exclusive service under the name “Colour on demand” in cooperation with the company RAL from Bonn. The new fabric collection already reveals an unbelievable diversity of colours and designs. Yet this unique service - your very own personal selection of an awning fabric colour - sets a completely new standard.

Lots of manual labour
The procedure is very simple. Initially, the customer selects a colour – either using their own sample, by way of which the appropriate RAL colour shade can be found, or by visiting the “Colour on demand” website featuring the Farbfinder (Colour finder) by markilux in order to find what they require. For experimentation purposes, a virtual colour swatch is available with all the available colours. In addition, a tool is provided which projects the colours onto an awning material and onto various views of a house. In this way, the customer can see what the colour looks like across a large area. Once the required colour reference has been found, the laboratory takes over in order to prepare the dyeing process. This involves routine manual labour: the analysis of the colour shade, the weighing and mixing of the pigments, the inspection of the dyed sample in various standardised light conditions, and the final dyeing of the awning fabric – whereby the norms adhered to by RAL always guarantee a high standard of colour fidelity. Consequently, this exclusive offer can be used to design the colours of patios and balconies exactly as a customer has envisioned it, in line with their own ideas and in almost any favourite colour.
