Patio Awnings from Samson

During the summer, being able to spend time resting on your patio becomes a necessity. Nothing measures up to the relaxation gained sitting under the sun, but what happens when the weather gets too much to bear? Of course it also is prone to raining during our British summertime so why not take more control of the weather with a high quality retractable awning from leading manufacturers Markilux and Weinor.

To fully enjoy the very changeable UK weather it is essential to specify a patio awning capable of dealing not only with rainfall but also the seemingly ever increasing winds we experience, and a cheap, off the shelf awning created purely for a bit of shade from the sun will certainly not last in our UK weather all year round.

Whether it be the scorching sun or a sudden downpour of rain, The Garage Door Centre are working alongside sister company Samson Awnings to ensure we have it all covered with a model for every requirement and all made to order within 3-4 weeks.

This patio awning is highly popular within the awning market due to it's visually pleasing subtle design. Despite being recommended for patios, decked areas and gardens, the Markilux 990 would not look out of place in office blocks, restaurants and pub gardens and many other. It is one of the most discreet cassette awnings on the market and available in some beautiful finishes to compliment the house exterior

Available in a range of different cassette colours, awning fabrics, material colours and with the option for remote control operation, this awning can be fully personalised to meet your needs.

Electric operation is available on request with a selection of awning accessories to make your awning experience that much more easier and enjoyable. This awning is available with a drop down automatic valance, optional lights, heaters and many different sun, wind and rain control systems

Weinor Cassita Patio Awning

The Weinor Cassita is a fully equipped full cassette awning intended for use on small to medium garden patio areas. It's small cassette casing is often deceiving as this awning can reach maximum projections of up to 3000mm. 

The Weinor Cassita offers high levels of protection against sun, wind and rain. When this stylish patio awning is retracted the folding arms, awning covers and all other components are fully protected by the designer cassette which ensures a longer life and requires minimal maintenance.

This entirely flat awning is suitable for wall fixing for maximum protection. With the cassette measuring in at 22cm wide x 12cm high, it can be hidden away well when not in use.

Markilux Pergola 110 and 210

Minimalistic frame with high utility was the development order for the designers of the Markilux Pergola. This retractable awning system resting on slender posts with unobtrusive lateral support guide tracks permits stylish shading even of large areas with a maximum projection of 6 metres and single cover width up to 7 metres

Retractable patio and terrace cover system for much larger areas with a higher wind rating than an awning.

This is also a perfect solution if you want to protect from the rain by using a good slope of pitch, a zip channel system and the Pergola 210 corner leg pitch adjuster.

The Pergola system is only available as an electric operated system due to the high tension invoved in the fabric retraction and because generally these are much larger units than standard patio awnings so would take a long while to operate manually.

Sizes up to 12m wide and 6m projection with a new zip system available to ensure the tightest of fits for the fabric down the side channels.


Weinor Terrazza

The Weinor Terrazza is a patio roof structure built with patio protection in mind. Covered by protective layers of glass to optimise the full use of daylight, the Terrazza can extend your patio use no matter what the weather.

Markilux 1600 Skylife Patio Awning

The Markilux Skylife is a patio awning innovation from world leaders Markilux, designed for rain use

The Markilux Skylife patio awning gives you two awnings in one: You either use it in the classical awning form – or you can transform it into a gable fronted awning for maximum effective wet weather use.

The very special feature about the Markilux Skylife is the unique patented joint in the centre of the front carry bar that is used to put this Markilux in place. Three simple movements and the Skylife is adjusted to cope with the rainwater.

Once the gable feature is set up it provides better protection from the sun’s rays from the side or the obvious best use in the U.K. is enabling rain water to run off reliably so that you can use your favourite place on the terrace even when it is raining. Additionally, the centre of the Skylife when set up has a larger walk under height. This feature is particularly useful on bungalows where the wall height is quite often restricted and therefore an awning quite often cannot have a very steep pitch angle from the wall it attaches to.

The Markilux Skylife is the only awning that can be transformed from the classic awning shape into a gable form.

The solid joint mechanism in the centre of the awning front profile is simply pushed upwards until the locking device clicks into place: This creates a type of ridge from which both of the side wings lower down in a gentle curve. 

Available in either manual or remote control operation and with a choice of over 150 fabulous state of the art fabric colours this is definitely an awning to consider for your property above others.

The Markilux Skylife 2 is available from The Garage Door Centre at direct prices and can also be purchased from our sister company Samson Patio Awnings along with a whole range of other sun, wind and rain protection products.
