New Lighting for the Markilux Pergola

The very popular weather protection system from Markilux now has 2 very striking lighting options to enhance to space underneath this superb retractable fabric roof system. The Pergola has been a great product to provide extra protection above what a normal retractable awning can provide.

The Pergola has support posts and a lean-to tracking guide system to take the awning in and out, supporting all the time from the sides as well as being tensioned front to back. The result is a large fabric cover system with extra tension on the fabric to provide strength against higher winds speeds and the option to protect against rainfall (when the pitch is set to 15 degrees or more), which many awnings cannot do.

The new lighting options for the Pergola are either adjustable spotlights on the cover tube sections, or a diffused LED light line in the entire length of the support tube. These lights come with a dimming option, which gives you supreme control over the light and atmosphere under the Pergola.

LED lights have a service life of around 20,000 hours, with 5W bulbs demanding very little power. As a result, this is a lighting option that will last for many, many years, whilst costing very little along the way.

London Roof Top Installation

Weinor-Pergotex-terrace-cover-with-gherkin-londonSamson Awnings have just completed the roof top installation of a Weinor Pergotex system on the 7th floor of an office block in central London. Due to the high and exposed location the Pergotex was chosen as it has a tested capability to deal with winds up to Beaufort scale 8 and with the PVC cover coupled with lateral support bars the system has a high level of fabric tension enabling it to withstand heavy rainfall too.
The location is stunning and the area has been designed for corporate hospitality for the clients offices.

This attractive addition to the London skyline can be viewed from every major central London building.

Weinor-Pergotex-with-Shard
The Weinor Pergotex is one of the products Samson Awnings regularly install for all year round weather protection but with the added advantage of being able to fully retract the fabric roof system when the weather dictates. The fabric roof is fully automatic with various control systems for operation and safety systems in case of extra high wind conditions.

The tough PVC fabric roof is further strengthened with aluminium support struts along the width and in this installation 2 units were coupled together for a large cover of approximately 70 square metres!!
The front and sides can be filled with various optional systems such as vertical blinds, sliding glass doors and so on to truly create an outdoor room area for many people to use all year round.

The aluminium framework is prefinished in a choice of colours and the rainwater is directed into a front guttering profile where the water is dispersed down one or some of the support legs and out to clear the covered area.
With the fabric roof fully retracted the Pergotex still looks smart on any building, gone are the days of multiple support tubes across the width making the framework overpowering and unattractive when not in use.

Gibus Med Twist soon on Display at our Showroom

Samson Awnings will have one of the largest displays of retractable roof systems in the UK very shortly and the Gibus Med Twist is a featured product for the future of outdoor living.
