RetFabCan
A canopy is an overhead roof or else a structure over which a fabric or metal covering is attached, able to provide shade or shelter. A canopy can also be a tent, generally without a floor.

At Samson Awning we offer a wide range of Fabric Canopies, however the example prices below are from our Markilux and Weinor range of products.

Retractable Fabric Canopy and Retractable Side Screen Retractable Fabric Canopy with Overhang, Vertical Front Blind and Retractable Side Screen Retractable Canopy with Enhanced Vinyl Fabric Cover System and Drainage with Infra Red Heating

Example 4 – Retractable Fabric Canopy and Retractable Side Screen

Front post and rear wall plate supported retractable fabric canopy (Pergola system) with a full cassette housing and fixed framework in aluminium with additional retractable side screen.

Size: 5000mm x 3500mm projection for canopy.

Size: 3500m projection and 1500mm high for the fabric side screen

Key FeaturesExample-4

Higher wind rating as the fabric cover is held firmly on all 4 sides with the side channels providing lateral tension. Front support posts prevent any movement in windy conditions, little force is exerted onto the rear brackets against the wall.

Electric motor drive operation only, available with remote control operation.

Wind sensor for preset wind speeds to protect fabric cover.

Pull out spring tensioned fabric side screen with fixed post for locking out when extended.

Fully enclosed aluminium cassette protects fabric when not in use. Fabric can match the awning cover with over 280 options.

Ideal Usage and Advantages:

Sunlight and UV protection with complete control over extension using remote control.

Rain protection – With a pitch ideally of over 10 degrees on the awning cover this can protect from rain to a higher level than a normal self supported awning can.

With the side screen extended prolonged periods of use are possible with additional protection from any prevailing winds provided in the evenings or cooler days.

Highly engineered German manufactured models with the highest resistance to the UK weather conditions with development over many years in similar climate to our own.

Disadvantages

Support posts and side channels are a fixed feature but are unobtrusive with careful consideration to the position and colour chosen.

Difficult to achieve suitable height on single storey buildings but possible with additional bracketry.

Pull out awning does require a solid structure for the cassette and a suitable fixed position for the lock out post although portable solutions are available.

Expect to pay: £5,300 – £5,900 inc. VAT fitted with remote control cover and wind sensor for safety, depending on exact model. (manual version not available)

Example 6 – Retractable Canopy with Enhanced Vinyl Fabric Cover System and Drainage with Infra Red Heating

Front post and rear wall plate supported ‘Pergola’ type system with enhanced retractable vinyl fabric canopy cover and permanent front support profile with integrated guttering and drainage through support posts.

Size: 5000mm x 3500mm projection for canopy.

Key FeaturesExample-6

High wind rating as the enhanced vinyl fabric cover is held firmly on all 4 sides with the side support channels providing lateral tension and additional strength is provided with aluminium cross support struts. The system ensures all rainwater is directed down to the front gutter profile with the taller side profiles preventing water over the sides.

Front support posts prevent any movement in windy conditions and also provide the downpipes for rainwater dispersal

Little force is exerted onto the rear brackets against the wall making installation easier in many cases for single storey buildings.

Electric motor drive operation only available with remote control operation.

Ideal Usage and Advantages:

Sunlight and UV protection with complete control over extension using remote control.

All rain types protection – With a pitch ideally of over 5 degrees on the awning cover this can protect from rain to the highest level for any retractable fabric cover.

The rainwater dispersal ensures a better drier cover underneath.

Infra red heaters provide additional comfort during cooler days and evenings with remote control operation via a multi channel transmitter.

The strong aluminium framework system allows the addition of side or front, fixed or retractable elements to further protect and enclose the area. Vertical cassette blinds and sliding glass doors are just 2 examples to enhance the weather protection.

Disadvantages

Support posts and side channels are a fixed feature but are attractive like a pergola would be with careful consideration to the position and colour chosen.

Difficult to achieve suitable height on single storey buildings but possible with additional bracketry and the fabric cannot roll into a cassette as it is too thick so required additional space at the rear when retracted fully.

Expect to pay: £8,000 – £9,000 inc. VAT depending on exact heater specifications and more for additional elements to the front and sides.
