Synchra Free-Standing Awning In Garden SettingFree-Standing Retractable Awnings Provide Shade Where Its Needed

A wide range of Markilux retractable awning products can be used in our exclusive Syncra free-standing awning configuration to provide sun and weather protection for large outdoor areas. Syncra free-standing awnings are perfect to add livable space in a large backyard area where no structure to support an awning is available.

The sturdy and attractive stand-alone steel frames support two independently operated folding-arm cassette awnings to cover a large area. The free-standing awnings and mechanisms retract safely into their stylish cassettes when not in use, and the Synchra is available with a wide range of our cassette awnings. The powder-coated awning stand includes a top profile in the same color as the awning cassette.

Multiple Configuration For Synchra Free-Standing Awnings

 Synchra Flex With Movable Kerbstones

The Synchra Fix is mounted on concrete footings via base plates. The Fix allows a width of over 23 feet and a projection of 13 feet on each side, for a total of 598 square feet of coverage. As many as three of these systems can be connected with the aid of a center support.

The Synchra Flex is not positioned permanently, but is weighted down with kerbstones at the installation location desired. This makes it ideal when the shade solution needs to be moved to meet your needs. The Flex allows for a total coverage area of 323 square feet per unit.

The Synchra free-standing awning is also available in an "Uno" configuration where a wall or roof mounted faceplate for a traditional awning is not wanted or not possible. The Synchra Uno provides the support for the awning that extends in only one direction. The Synchra Uno is avaiable in either Fix or Flex.

Synchra can also be configured in partnership with the Markilux 100 and 200 pergola awning. This configuration offers sun and weather protection over a large area supported by slender posts and using lateral guide tracks. This image below shows the Synchra partnered with the Markilux 100 and configured both standard and as an Uno installation.
