When you require an awning in an extra large size (in particular over about six metres wide) then the options can be greatly reduced. However, there are still many models all capable of widths up to a giant 14 metres wide! Samson offer various semi and full cassette awnings purpose made up to this size for patios and terraces requiring a lot of shade and cover.
All of these ‘extra large’ awnings are what we call ‘coupled’ awnings, when the width is generally over seven metres wide, and this effectively means two units are combined together with one motor drive operating both awning covers for maximum efficiency.
The maximum projection for a self supporting awning is 4 metres. This fact will never change, purely because of the stresses involved in this type of mechanism. We do however offer awnings with greater projection than their widths.
If any more than a 4m projection is required then look towards systems with supporting posts at the front and side channels to further support the fabric cover. Take a look at our range of retractable roof and pergola systems for ideas on what is available, but sizes up to six metres in projection is no problem, with these products providing far greater structural integrity at larger projections.
The larger or coupled awnings are perfect for both domestic and commercial use. Larger gardens or patios can now be covered more efficiently and cost effectively for example, whilst for businesses it provides an incredibly easy way to allow customers to use a larger amount of outside space. This can allow you to seat more customers outside your cafe or restaurant, provide a covered outdoor social area at your pub or bar, or maybe simply
Samson Awnings offer a variety of different awnings which can be coupled or have larger widths, and you can read more about these below.
