Specifying awnings for pavement areas and terraces helps hospitality businesses to boost cover numbers and improve their presence on the high street.

Covered outdoor areas provide diners with protection from the sun during the summer and from wind and rain all year round, extending serving times into evenings and, with built-in heating, all year round too.

Designed well, they will also contribute to local placemaking and improving public realm. 

Markilux Pergola Stretch at Bootshaus, Mannheim 

The owners of the Bootshaus restaurant and cafe in Mannheim, Germany chose the Pergola Stretch awning from German shading solutions manufacturer Markilux for their 160 square metre outside terrace.

The space is now more versatile and has capacity for bookings and events for up to 500 people, whatever the weather.

'Last autumn, after a few months of preliminary planning, we supplied Bootshaus with our Pergola Stretch awning in a rainproof fabric so their terrace could be used more,' says Markilux sales manager Jan Kattenbeck. 

'The system consists of four joined awning units that cover a width of over 23 metres with an extension of seven metres.'

Two vertical blinds with panoramic windows and triangular side sections allow the terrace to be closed off at the sides for all-round weather protection.  

LED lighting systems ensure an attractive lighting atmosphere in the evening and in-built infra-red heating can also be specified.

The pergola system was installed in just over a week by a local Markilux specialist dealer, supported by the company's service team. All components were lifted in by crane.

The Markilux Pergola Stretch awning was winner of the German Design Award Special Mention 2021.
