Markilux Exclusive Bionic Tendon

Exclusive Bionic Tendon

The engineers of Markilux have developed a superior awning arm technology using high-tech Kevlar fibers with extremely high tensile strength.

  • Stronger than steel
  • Noiseless
  • Superior power transference to front profile for taut cover at every extension

The Bionic Tendon is available on the following Markilux retractable cassette awning models:

Germany’s Fraunhofer Institute tested the durability of the bionic tendon. They stopped the test after 50,000 openings and closings without failure–enough to operate an awning over 68 years!
