Awning manufacturers

With so many different companies manufacturing awnings and so many awnings pushed through Google search results now it can sometimes be puzzling to figure out which awning manufacturers are trustworthy established companies making high quality products and suitable for your requirements.

So many offer lower quality awnings generally produced for very light use and sun shade only over smaller area, some of which are unstable and even unsafe. The fabric is perhaps one of the biggest indicators on awning quality along with the supporting arms and use of forged knuckle arm joints for stability and strength. Simply put, an average high quality awning will simply have far more material in it and offer greater overall strength and longevity but also be a far more aesthetically pleasing product too with higher quality paint finishing.

Samson Awnings aim to make this choice much easier for you by choosing to only partner with companies that we trust, who make high quality products, with appealing designs and cutting edge awning technology.

The manufacturers we currently offer are the German heavyweights Markilux and Weinor, and Erhardt, bringing their wide selection of fantastic awnings, as well as the already stocked T100 and T150 glass verandas.


Markilux are a German manufacturer with one of the highest pedigrees for manufacturing fabric awnings and blinds.

They manufacture probably some of the best awning systems in the world, with a vast range of awnings on offer to satisfy different specifications and with an emphasis on design and style.

From the look of the awning cassette, down to the finest details of the high quality, in house manufactured fabrics, these awnings are the best money can buy. All awnings are made to measure with options on everything one you have decided on your size. Markilux also now manufacture bespoke retractable pergola systems for larger areas.


Weinor are another well established German manufacturer with a wider range of outdoor living products such as their glass roof and outdoor room systems.

The products are all made to order and with a wide choice of awnings offering excellent LED lighting options, drop down valances and other unique accessories these are a fine choice for a long lasting high quality product.

A wide range of factory finished colours for the frames and cassette options make these awnings ideal for many commercial applications where colour co ordination is essential.


Erhardt Markisen are a German heavyweight in the worlds of retractable awnings and glass roof terrace covers.

At Samson Awnings we will offer the eight best different awnings from Erhardt Markisen. These eight span from open cassette lightweight awnings such as the Erhardt S, up to the Bauhaus inspired designer Erhardt Q awning, and even the Erhardt PM pergola awning.

Also available are the Erhardt T100 & T150 glass roof systems, which can be filled in at the side with glass panels and doors to form a full glass room.


Verano are a Dutch manufacturer for a wide range of awnings, vertical blinds and aluminium roof systems.

Established in 1990, Verano have rose quickly to become a well established and respected name within the industry. The awnings we offer from Verano are all excellent value for money, although they do have a more limited number of options.

For the smaller manual or electric operated awnings these are a great option. Suitable for both domestic or commercial use, with a full fabric printing service also offered for logos and lettering.
