Awnings Electric operation control optionsControl your awning effortlessly with a handheld remote control capable of multi-channel options when required to control the awning cover, lighting and dimming, drop down front valance, infra-red heating and other electric awnings or blinds as well.

Nearly every awning we supply has a built in motion sensor or wind speed sensor to retract the awning if the wind speed gets too disruptive.

Awnings can deal with varying degrees of wind depending on the model, but all have a maximum wind speed tolerance and should never be left open and unattended ideally and this is where the sensor is a great option to include.

Retractable Awnings with LED LightingUse your electric awning into the evening with various LED lighting options all controlled from the touch of a button or via a smart phone app using the Somfy home automation system.

High quality and powerful LED spotlights and light bars offer very good lighting for outdoor areas and are positioned in various places depending on the awning model used.

LED lights positioned externally on the awning can also be used as a light bar without the awning even in use, ideal for the winter months.

Rain Protection for Retractable AwningsAlthough most awnings are sold for sun protection and providing a comfortable area to sit beneath, we also have to deal with the rain, as we are in the UK after all.

It isn’t necessary to have a waterproof fabric for rain protection in an awning as the real trick is to not have water sitting on the fabric cover in the first place and hence why we insist on a minimum of 15-20 degree pitch if an awning is to be used in the rain, preferably more if possible.

Awnings used for rain protection should be carefully specified and always have a steep pitch for rainfall run off, but also be one of the sturdier models with larger arms.

The wind and motion detection systems should also be used in every case when the intention is to use the awning in more unstable weather.

Generally, most awnings will deal with light annoying rain as we often see in the summer and autumn months, but common sense is the order of the day and never leave an awning unattended in rain.

Additional Shading and Privacy for Retractable AwningsYou can have an optional manual or electric drop down front valance system on several awning models, primarily to provide shade from low lying sun, but also providing additional privacy and warmth on those cooler evenings by preventing a cool breeze entering your outdoor area.

The drop down valance is available with many more fabrics, including tough perforated fabrics specially designed to provide some vision out but still protect from the sun, wind  and rain.

Add even more shade with a Side Screen with the ability to simply disappear into its cassette cover when not in use, retractable side screens can remain a low-key fixture on any building yet still be ready for use by simply extending the fabric from the pull handle.

retractable Awnings at dusk with lightingCooler Spring and Autumn evenings are not a problem with our superb range of integrated infrared awning heaters and various lighting solutions, as well as side screens and drop down valances, deflecting the cooler evening breezes.

By having a large fabric cover sitting over you will usually trap good levels of warmth and it is certainly more comfortable sitting underneath a cover as the temperature outside drops. Prevailing winds can be dealt with in several ways dependent on the awning model used and the size required to protect.

Our range of LED lighting options is continuously expanding, our newest addition to the collection being LED lines that are integrated in the arm of the awning.Page DividerAWNING OVERVIEWS


Pegrola System in different applications

Our range of pergolas could be the perfect option for you! When looking for a larger scale awning we always recommend looking through our pergola options. Our impressive range of high quality pergolas are built with the homeowner in mind. Offering you greater weather resistance, these are the next step up from an awning.

Awnings are a great option for those looking to extend their living space throughout summer and milder weathers and while you can use your awning in most weathers when winds are strong your awning is likely not recommended for use. With wind sensors fitted your awning fabric will automatically retract but with a pergola system it extends your outdoor living throughout more unpredictable weather. View our systems below.

Samson Outdoor Living ShowroomAny of the Samson Awnings are a solid investment for your home that will last for many years to come. Relax knowing you have the very latest in material, electronic and construction technology, where only the highest quality components are used when manufacturing your awning.

Your patio awning will become part of your home and serve to enhance your outdoor area whether for quieter relaxing moments or large gatherings of friends or family.

Various options on many of the awnings provide extra protection and comfort, items such as the ‘drop down front valance’ or pull out side screens to prevent annoying droughts from one side.

For most electric retractable awnings, you will have a wind sensor to ensure the awning retracts fully if the wind speed becomes too high and dangerous.

Many of the bespoke awnings we sell are not suitable for normal DIY installation but we do have various standard awning options which are far simpler to install with minimal bracketing involved.
