The Markilux 1550 is a semi-cassette folding arm patio awning which was given the IF Design Award for excellent design. The patio awning innovation is installed with halogen spotlights within the cassette but Markilux, with typical practical foresight, have seen a potential but very real, difficulty with this strategy.
Markilux realised that installing the lights in the cassette would attract the insects during night which are inevitably attracted to light, to buzz their irritating way around the cassette and inevitably through the open windows of a house to do their worst within. Deans have solved the problem by mounting the lights on the Markilux 1550 awning profile of which resulted in the opposite effect and draws the bugs away from the house while producing a pleasant downward glow where it illuminates the area covered by the patio and not just down the wall.
