From Planning to Installation Made Easy

1. Initial Contact

Once you have reviewed our products online you can either call us directly on 01933 448 844, submit an enquiry online or visit our showroom.
Our initial consultation is to establish which product best suits your needs and to focus on the options and specifications available.
If you are able to send us images that can also help with the specification of the project. We can then visualise and recommend products using our expert knowledge and experience.

2. Price Proposal

At this stage we will send you a proposal to review where you can ask any questions you may have and make changes if required.
We can also provide basic visuals and super impose certain products onto an image of your home or business to enable you to visualise the end result.
We work closely with you to ensure that the products we recommend are not only the most suitable for your home or business premises but also within the budget you have in mind for the project.

3. Site Survey

Once you are happy with your proposal, we will arrange a site survey to check dimensions and to ensure the specifications are suitable.
Fabric, colour choices and other options for your product and installation are all reviewed at this stage. Only when you are 100% happy, you sign and pay a deposit to commence the order.
As many of our products are bespoke, they can take 3 – 8 weeks to arrive, we may however have standard products in stock.

4. Installation

Finally, we will agree an installation date to suit you.
Our installation team will arrive to complete your installation, tidy up and handover a professionally installed product.
Your product will have guarantees in place for the longest, trouble-free use for many years.
We also offer ongoing maintenance and servicing for the more complex mechanical and electric models for added peace of mind.



Who Are We?

Samson Awnings began trading as a sub division of Samson Industrial Doors in 2006, using the same skills, installers, transport and equipment we had used since 1994 to install large industrial doors. We are part of the Dovegroup, a family owned group of companies specialising in made to measure products for the home and for business. External products mainly.
Our complete group team is now over 70 staff and we offer a complete journey from Design through to Installation with then ongoing maintenance too for the complex automated products.
Some of our staff have been with us since the beginning in 1986 and many have been with us for over 20 years now, Our wealth of knowledge and experience is unique in the UK. Established very recently as Samson Outdoor Living Ltd to reflect a complete focus on the outdoor living market, we have many years of experience and a massive catalogue of installations of all shapes and sizes providing protective cover around the UK.

Where Are We?

We are centrally located in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire with possibly the easiest road network surrounding us for access from any direction and with London just over 1 hour away.

Main Showroom:

6-8 Meadow Close
Ise Valley Trading Estate
Finedon Road

We operate a very wide area, but not the entire UK. We have installations down in Devon and many along the South coast, across in East Anglia, North as far as Cumbria and spend a lot of our time in all areas of London. We have warehouse facilities in London to assist our operations.


We opened a large showroom in 1994 and we still have our main offices there today, with supporting warehouse facilities less than 1 mile away. Our showroom also displays a wide range of garage doors, entrance doors, shutters and other products so it is worth a visit for other reasons too apart from an awning or canopy.
Our outdoor living showroom is one of the most comprehensive in the UK showing a wide range of awnings, pergolas, glass verandas and room, umbrellas and retractable canopies. Our louvered bioclimatic roof system is also on display and not to be confused with the recent surge of DIY products offered online and in garden centres around the UK. We offer only this product fit for commercial use and all year round durability and also made to measure with larger sizes than standard systems.
We encourage anyone to visit the showroom because of the vast differences you will see between a £3,000 awning compared to a basic DIY £499 awning, which we do not sell.
Our friendly staff can walk you through various options and products at your leisure. You can try, sit inside, and operate all the various outdoor canopies and rooms we have to show whilst being able to speak to one of our sales staff who can provide clear pricing options and advice for you. We do not want to simply book an appointment to come to your home, but would rather discuss options and prices before any surveys are required.

Being completely direct, our prices will not be the lowest, but for a lot of branded products too we are certainly not the most expensive either. We are a family run business and proud of the products and services we offer, standing by them all as products fit for the purpose they are intended for. We believe our prices are the fairest within the market generally.
We DO NOT try to book home consultations or appointments with anyone until we have first established we can offer something for your application which will suit and also have something which is in your budget too.
Our prices are transparent and offered to you for consideration directly from us, following discussions and an understanding of what you are trying to achieve. We don’t over promise with the products available, but also understand there is a massive price range for different products for the same size area.
We also DO NOT employ commission driven direct sales people who only want you to sign up for something for their own gain.

How can I order? Our approach

For many years we’ve helped our domestic and commercial awning and canopy customers.

How can I order? Our approach

1. Take several pictures of the area where you are looking to create an outdoor space.
2. Send your images with your details.
3. Tell us a little about what you want to achieve e.g. sun protection, rain protection, all year round use of space and so on.
4. If you have any preferences already, things such as retractable, fixed or both in one system. Don’t worry if you haven’t as we can advise and guide you later if needed. Read more
