Grey Retractable Awning

The Benefits of an Awning Explained

Retractable awnings let home owners control the great British weather on their own terms. When passing showers threaten in the summer and Autumn, or when the sun gets too hot, they or the intelligent home automation systems available unroll the awning for protection and shade. It has been shown that it can be as much as 20 degrees cooler under an awning’s canopy.

Because awnings prevent the suns rays from shining through windows and sliding glass doors, they can keep temperatures inside cooler as well, which saves on air-conditioning costs and they can help prevent carpets, rugs and furniture from fading in direct sunlight. Awnings also provide a sheltered place for your children and pets to play, shielded from direct sunlight but also protected from rain with certain awning models.

Some of the more recent developments in awnings provide accessories that can greatly increase the versatility and usefulness you can get from your deck or patio. A screen room add-on can easily turn an awning into a virtually wind free outdoor room, side screening cuts down on wind and mist coming under the sides of awnings, and patio lights let people enjoy their decks evenings and nights. The supported awning using an aluminium framework allows even further extensions of the fabric to a maximum of about 6 metres and also means the awning can be left out in higher wind speeds and rainfall too. Systems such as the Markilux Pergola or the Weinor Pergotex will achieve far greater outdoor area use most of the year round.

Cambridgeshire Patio Awnings

Samson Awnings & Terrace Covers specialise in the sale, supply, installation and servicing of patio awnings and supported retractable roof systems offering higher levels of wind and rain protection than most standard awnings can.

All of the Cambridge Patio Awnings we supply are fully retractable and are available with full cassette, semi cassette or open cassette covers to protect against the sun. This enables you to enjoy the shade and shelter which a patio awning provides.

Whilst being able to effectively offer sun protection, our patio awnings are available with a variety of different material covers to offer effective shade against sun glare and the rain. A waterproof patio awning allows you to remain outdoors even during rainfall keeping you and your patio area dry.

We only deal with manufacturers and models of the highest quality to ensure that the best performance possible is provided for many years to come and that you remain deeply satisfied after dealing with us.

Sun Awnings

A properly specified and installed Sun Awning can make the difference between a relaxing, beautiful outdoor space and an area spoiled by a powerfully strong sun or even light rainfall in the summer or autumn months. Samson Awnings & Terrace Covers supply and install a range of sun awnings suited to blocking out the powerful heat from the sun without losing the natural light. We also offer awnings quite capable of dealing with rain and higher wind speeds than most normal basic awnings.

All of our patio cover products offer high quality sun shading at extremely affordable Samson sun awning prices.

Even though sun awnings are designed for use to block the sun, they are also designed to withstand light rainfall when used to cover an entertainment area at night. With in-built tilting halogen lamps, our sun awnings with lights can be quickly extended and brighten up any area with the simple click of a remote control handset.

Our Large Parasols & Commercial Umbrellas are some of the most agile outdoor living products on the market. We supply and install a range of high-quality large parasols capable of spanning up to 70m². We specialise in the supply and installation of two main types of large umbrellas & giant parasols in various shapes – round, square, rectangular and octagonal.

Centre Pole Umbrellas are fixed to a supporting pole in the centre and are highly popular in dining areas where a table can be inserted around the supporting poles. Fixed or moveable bases are available for all sizes of umbrellas sold.

Cantilever Umbrellas offer more room underneath the shading canopy as they have a side-arm construction which allows them to offer practical shading over an area without the obstruction of a supporting pole.

A Carport offers unobtrusive driveway cover with the use of a simple canopy and standing support structure. Our Carports require installation against an already existing wall, allowing you to park closer to your home.
