    Whether you’re investing in an awning for your historic hotel, family-run restaurant or coffee shop in the city, we regularly supply awnings to businesses, architects and designers. You can be sure that your space is as attractive as it is practical. We’ll work with you to find the perfect solution, considering your vision, objectives and budget.

We stock a full range of high-end, rigorously tested products so that you can have total confidence in our quality and performance.

Our terrace and patio covers provide the perfect solution for those looking to enjoy their outdoor living areas in any season, safe in the knowledge that they are protected from snow and rain. We offer a range of materials and styles from top manufacturers. The Gibus Med System is a fine example if you want to create an alfresco dining space, a comfortable living area or a relaxing spot for a hot tub. With manual and electric versions, you can decide how you want to control your sun protection. If you’re looking for a terrace cover that can withstand the elements without compromising style, our Samson Piazza Patio Cover System will meet your needs. With a fixed system in purpose-made sizes, the Piazza gives you the opportunity to add protected blinds or glass sliding doors to the sides and front.

We’ve also developed longstanding relationships with many businesses across Leicestershire and throughout the UK, supplying and installing terrace and patio covers for bars, pubs, restaurants, coffee shops, cafes, hotels, schools and nurseries and sports clubs.

Large Parasols & Commercial Umbrellas in Leicestershire

Our large parasols are designed to protect you from the harmful UV (ultraviolet) rays from the sun,  strong winds and heavy rain. Whether you prefer manual or electric operation, you can create shade wherever you need it. The Paraflex side-supported umbrellas meet the needs of homeowners and businesses. There’s no need for a heavy base, and you can adjust your parasol up to 180 degrees with ease to match the angle of the sun (or more when mounted on the pole or a corner). We also supply centre pole umbrellas with fixed or movable bases, as well as cantilever parasols which are ideal for shops, restaurants, pubs, cafes, holiday homes and many residential settings.

Carport Installation Leicestershire

A carport is an excellent investment for any home or business, providing a sheltered and secure space for cars, motorcycles and other vehicles. Our carports are installed with high-quality polycarbonate inserts as standard, offering exceptional protection against harsh winds and heavy rainfall. We can also supply and install carports with toughened safety glass to provide maximum visibility and protection. Our experienced, proactive and professional installation teams have decades of experience installing carports, such as the Samson Saddled Carport, which provides a simple yet modern finish that’s maintenance-free and built for the UK climate.
