Schools have budgets and often large chunks are spent on buying new blinds and awnings when something goes wrong. At MD we offer a call-out service for the maintenance and repair of products within busy schools. We almost always repair blinds on site, ordering replacement parts if needed from our trustworthy suppliers, and working at suitable times when learning is not disrupted, such as late afternoons and school holidays.


We all need some sun exposure — it's the top source of vitamin D, which helps our bodies absorb calcium for stronger, healthier bones. But it doesn't take much time in the sun for most people to get the vitamin D they need. And repeated unprotected exposure to the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause skin damage, eye damage, immune system suppression, and skin cancer. Most children get much of their lifetime sun exposure before age 18, so it's important for elders to teach them how to enjoy the sun safely. Taking the right precautions can greatly reduce overexposure of the sun, and with our child-safe awnings, taking precautions has never been easier.

The Markilux awnings we install and supply follow European and British safety standards against UV protection. In a range of colours and styles, our awnings provide unbeatable shade for children during break times.
