Luxury Patio Awnings

Patio Awnings

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. 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.

Markilux Pergola 110 and 210

Markilux Pergola 110 and 210 Awnings

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.

The retractable patio and terrace cover system, allows for much larger areas to be covered 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 involved in the fabric retraction and because generally these are much larger units than standard patio awnings so would take a long time to operate manually.

With 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.
