What are the differences between the fixed roof systems?

We offer several fixed roof canopy systems and each have their own unique features.
Samson Awnings offer several high quality fixed roof systems and really the only common feature between them is that they are all manufactured from aluminium for the main framework structure.
We offer 3 main types with variations offered between each one as required.

The Samson ‘Homestyle’ system is the starting point in terms of price and specification. It is an all aluminium framework with twin wall 10mm polycarbonate roof cover and an external rainwater Upvc guttering system. It is available in 2 standard colours for the same price – white or dark brown, and offers excellent fixed cover for sizes up to any width, as the systems can be could together but has a maximum projection of 4000mm. The polycarbonate roof system is available in a clear, opaque or tinted finish depending on the effect require underneath, i.e. South facing may require a tine and North facing may require the clear cover for maximum light ingress.

Our next step up is the Samson ‘Piazza’ system with a triple wall polycarbonate roof cover and an aluminium framework but with much higher specification for strength and stability enabling additional products to be added. This includes vertical blinds, sliding glass doors and several fixed systems to help enclose and protect the internal space from external elements. The Piazza also has an integral rainwater gutter which disperses water down through the support posts at the front. The standard colours are white, brown, green and anthracite. Amy RAL or BS colour os available of course at extra cost if required.
The maximum projection is 3500mm with a maximum width of 7000mm. This system has a recent development where less roof struts are used therefore providing more light underneath but with all the same high specifications. This system is called the ‘Stanza’

The final step is the ‘Terrazza’ system, the basis for the full blown glass room. The Terrazza has 2 different roof profiles but is a system offering a glass roof cover at almost any size but with a maximum projection of 6000mm. The Terrazza is manufactured, like the others. to your exact size and also offers more shapes. The roof is usually 10mm toughened safety glass as standard and the aluminium framework system can take a multitude of side and front infill add ons to produce the perfect outdoor living area whatever the aspect.

The prices for these systems increase according to the amount of material used in each system and that is about the only way to explain it. Each one has its place and each one is capable of offering excellent all year round outdoor weather protection but with increased material use and increased strength comes the ability to add extra items to make the outdoor space even more flexible and useful.  It depends what you want from your outdoor area.
