Grey Retractable Awning

The Key Benefits of Awnings

In recent years, more people have been spending time in their gardens and annoying the outdoors. Having an outdoor space to call your own is something special, but you also want to ensure your haven is safe, comfortable and practical. Retractable awnings allow you to make the most of the weather, getting the coverage you need for heavy showers, protection from strong winds, minimal glare from the sun and a robust defence against damaging UV rays.

With the flexibility to create the right ambience for relaxing, entertaining or dining, you can keep temperatures cool in the summer and make the most of your garden, even when the weather begins to cool. Certain awnings will also provide exceptional protection against rain, allowing you to protect your furniture when a downpour is due. Technological advancements have paved the way for extra features, such as a screen-room add-on, lights and electric operation. Whether you’re looking to create a new patio area or have an existing decking that requires shelter from the sun, we can provide the right solution.

The Markilux Pergola is a bespoke, pioneering, retractable, electric-operated fabric roof system that provides extensive coverage – and a remarkably high wind rating, usable up to Beaufort 6 scale winds. Another fine choice for homes and businesses is the Weinor Pergotex retractable fabric and aluminium roof cover system – available in single unit sizes up to 7 metres wide with a maximum projection of 6.5 metres. The Weinor Pergotex can also be ‘coupled’ to make larger units and deliver a stunning gable shape.

Cambridgeshire Patio Awnings

Cambridgeshire is blessed with diverse architecture, from medieval structures to Victorian townhouses, spacious country cottages, sleek apartments and the newest eco-friendly buildings. We’ve covered the whole of Cambridge since our story began in 1993, helping homeowners and businesses gain high levels of wind and rain protection. Our patio awnings are available with a range of material covers that deliver effective shade against sun glare, strong winds, snow and rain.

You can upgrade your awning with features such as rain sensors, interior thermostats, blinds, timer switches, heating, and lighting.


Sun Awnings

A correctly specified, professionally installed, and durable sun awnings will easily allow you to control the intense heat and UV rays of the midday sun. You can finally turn your scorching patio or decking into a comfortable haven where you can relax with friends, enjoy a delicious meal or enjoy some alone time with nothing but the sound of nature in the background. Whilst Cambridge saw record high temperatures in recent years; there will always be plenty of days that have some (or a little too much) rain and high winds.

At Samson Awnings, our sun awnings also allow you to create a cosy atmosphere during those chillier evenings, allowing you to make the most of your outdoor space at any time of the year. Our sun awnings are available in various sizes, styles and colours to fit seamlessly within any exterior setting.
