Markilux Pergola: The ultimate solution for outdoor area
For the UK homeowners, where outdoor living is a way of life, they face a common challenge – an expansive outdoor space that remains largely unused during the hottest months of the year.
For the UK homeowners, where outdoor living is a way of life, they face a common challenge – an expansive outdoor space that remains largely unused during the hottest months of the year. The extensive glass façade of the house offers breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape but also contributed to a significant increase in indoor temperatures due to solar heat gain. This leads to a common need: What can you do to provide shade, reduce heat and transform the outdoor area.
According to the latest research, approximately 87%** of British homes have gardens – with seven out of eight households having access to either a private or shared area, equaling around 23 million outdoor spaces.
|Whether as a free standing structure or as an extension of the property, a modern pergola with rotating or with a retracting roof provides a dedicated outdoor ‘’room’’ in any premises.
At Samson Outdoor Living, we provide a vast range of Retractable Terrace covers, offering the ability to cover small patios to large areas but with the advantage of being able to retract the fabric roof in finer weather.
The pergola systems we offer are designed to deal with the very diverse UK weather and the various options either guide the rainwater off the front of sides or even into concealed guttering channels built into the framework of the structure.

|One of many Markilux refinements: the lateral fabric guide without a gap between fabric cover and guide track. For a more beautiful overall look and better wind stability.
|For better rainwater drainage, the front support post of the Markilux pergola can be lowered between 20 and 40 cm in no time, depending on the size.
As we transition into the colder months, it is likely the more temporary covers such as parasols and umbrellas won’t stand up to the UK’s adverse weather conditions. The ideal solution to this is our highly durable pergola systems that offers an open-air alfresco feel when left fully open, and ensures a completely water, wind and even snow tight roof when closed. Moreover, the Markilux Pergola has a higher wind rating and better rain protection ability over a normal awning and is also available in far larger sizes. (Up to five Markilux Pergolas can be linked together).
Here is a recent installation of a Markilux Pergola system for our customer. Not only providing shade for the patio and terrace but it also offered protection to the glass facade behind it. This dual-purpose functionality addressed the issue of solar heat gain in the indoor spaces while preserving the stunning outdoor views. This pergola is made of a coupled awning unit with three posts supported.
