Skylights are a beautiful and useful addition to many homes, bringing light and warmth to areas that may otherwise be cold and dark.
However, there are some times of the day and the year when your skylight may become a little too overwhelming with heat and glare. A simple solution is installing retractable conservatory awnings over skylights that can be easily operated with the press of a button. Traditionally this was the domain of a canvas canopy. As the world leader in innovation and design, markilux offers a large range of retractable conservatory blinds which utilise high tech fabrics offering even greater protection from glare and heat than canvas blinds.
Once installed, you are in control of your environment. You can retract the awning to let the winter sun in and extend it in summer to keep your home cool and shaded. You can even program awnings to open and shut according to the direction and intensity of the sun.
markilux conservatory awnings can be installed onto skylights that are on straight or pitched rooves. Alternatively, an under glass conservatory could be installed internally.
Enjoy your skylight all year round with the simple addition of a little extra protection.
