Designed primarily to offer cover to non-garaged vehicles, carport systems are the ultimate driveway protection for your car, van, caravan or campervan against both sun and rain.
Carports are highly useful due to their minimal need for space on the ground combined with the large shelter it provides.
Fixed against the naturally strong wall of a house or garage, each Carport we supply is further reinforced thanks to its structurally simple yet effective supports. Each supporting column offers further reinforcement to the canopy roof ensuring full protection is offered at all times.
Sun, Wind & Rain – Carports have got it covered
Carports from Samson Awnings are installed with high quality polycarbonate inserts as standard enabling them to cope with harrowing winds & torrential rainfall. Some of our CarPort models are available with toughened safety glass to give both an impressive visual finish and effective canopy cover.
Despite offering less protection than a traditional garage, a Carport more than makes up for this with the ventilation it provides. With no walls (excluding the already existing supporting wall) it offers no obstruction to natural fresh air whilst still offering protection against sun, wind and rain.
There are 3 important factors to take into consideration when measuring for a carport. Width, Projection and Height.
- Width is the distance along the side of the wall.
- Projection is the distance the CarPort spans from the supporting wall.
- Height is the overall height of the Carport structure.

We offer Carports from widths as small as 1m up to widths of 7m. However this does not mean this is the largest width we can achieve – when purchasing larger carports for multiple cars, we are able to couple carports together to achieve any widths possible.
When shopping for the ideal aluminium CarPort, there is nothing worse than finding the perfect one only to realise that it’s restricted sizes will shorten the drive-through width of your driveway. Our Carport systems are available from projections as small as 1m upto a maximum projection of 3.5m across to allow for the perfect fit on wider driveways.
Buy a high quality car port in aluminium and never have the worry of replacing rotten timber or rapidly discolouring Upvc. All of our aluminium CarPorts are tested to withstand the pressures of the unpredictable British weather to ensure you receive real value for money.
The strength of our car ports is underlined by wind load testing and complete building regulations compliancy.
Built-in rain water guttering allows water to be directed wherever required to avoid flooding. The strong support legs give great strength to the roof system which is built to take our ever changeable UK weather.
The finely constructed aluminium frame is available in a choice of any colour on request. As standard, each CarPort is availably in either a white or brown powdercoat finish. Other colours are available on request at an additional surcharge.
