Live Life Longer Outdoors – The Glass Veranda Is the Perfect UK Weather Protection Solution.

Glass VerandasSince 2006 we have been creating and expanding many customers’ outdoor living spaces to provide high quality weather protection, extending the Autumn months, starting the Spring months far earlier and then controlling the hottest Summer months, whilst snatching extra Winter days too when the weather is calm.

A Glass Veranda properly specified and fitted with a retractable fabric awning on the roof is perhaps the most perfect outdoor weather protection solution for the UK cliamte. The glass roof allows maximum natural light, but no rain can ever come through, whilst a retractable blind in the roof provides the protection from the sun and intense glare on the hottest days..

We love being outdoors, because we know it is healthier for us and improves our overall well being and general mindset towards life, but we also live in the UK and the rain can be relentless sometimes.

Awnings Electric operation control optionsStay outdoors for longer using infrared halogen heating and low voltage spotlights making the use of our Glass Verandas as a permanent and comfortable extension to the living space of your home.

You truly are mixing the outdoors with the indoors to give yourself a beautiful area to spend time with friends and family or just relaxing by yourself.

Ideal for all types of entertaining or relaxing, guests can venture out onto your patio even on a rainy summer evening and remain warm.

During the day if the sun becomes too strong, open out the built in retractable roof awning to control the amount of sunlight entering and control the temperature too, as well as opening the sides and the front for ventilation, something very difficult to do with the average conservatory.

Samson Fabric Choices from Dickson Fabrics

Samson Awnings offer more design options than most other companies with different roof and support profile sizes and shapes to suit the overall size and property style.

We offer super sleek and clean designs with square profile through to a far more traditional style of veranda with a Victorian style support post design recreating the designs used many years ago on period properties. The choice is yours…

Samson also offer bespoke shapes for our glass verandas and can now provide a flat roof design structure as well as stand alone systems when fixing to the house is difficult or the system is required away from the property.

Our newest flat roof system is popular as it fits the design of so many more modern homes and also doesn’t require the height at the wall mounting point that sloping lean to systems required.

The range of built in retractable awnings available for our veranda systems give ultimate flexibility in specification and climate control, all dependent on your requirements and the position of the veranda to the sun. Usually positioned under your Glass Veranda roof the built in awning system will remain protected throughout its life, protected from weathering, debris or pooling rain water. Even after years of use your Glass Veranda fabric will rarely become stained, weathered or dirty.

Awning systems can be specified externally if required and fabrics are produced to cope with external mounting. A choice of over 140 fabrics are available and optional side screens can also be used for further control of the microclimate inside as well as privacy if required.

fabric awnings for the home

Glass verandas help to extend the usability of your outside space, allowing you a much more comfortable use of your patio and garden area in the evenings. We can couple systems back to back for a hipped style roof design or have limitless width options for the very widest patio.

We also offer systems specifically for commercial applications where function maybe takes over from form and the size of cover is a commercial scale.Page Divider

Awnings Electric operation control optionsThere are a wide range of electronic weather sensors for all motor-driven awnings used on either the roof or the side of our glass verandas:
A sun sensor, a sun and wind sensor or a sun, wind and rain sensor.

Depending on the version, they automatically open the awning in the sun and retract it in the wind for protection and safety, even when you are not at home for total control with minimum effort. Timers and thermostats can also be specified for controlling your awnings.

Take it to the ultimate level and integrate the electric blinds and lighting into an app controlled system to take control from your smartphone or tablet anywhere in the world.

LED lighting is most often used and incorporated into the roof beams or back bar section. These high quality lights offer real lighting and not just a mood lighting although with the dimming facility can be whatever you need then to be at the touch of a button.

Installation is generally a simple process with no major building work ever required and installation is usually completed in 2 or 3 days (depending on size). No foundations are generally required for any of the glass verandas, only single points of support are required and they can even be bolted down to a suitable surface reducing disturbance during installation to an absolute minimum.

We can manufacture the veranda to be perfect in the wall height and pitch angle to the front and also inset the support posts if required for aesthetic or practical reasons on site.

Start to really enjoy your home all year round and your wonderful garden and patio outdoor area in style with a glass veranda system from Samson Awnings. A fantastic investment into any home providing extra space and in most cases planning permission is not required as this system does not require traditional building foundation work.
