Samson Awnings is a trading division of Samson Industrial Doors Ltd, a business formed in 1994 to provide high quality commercial door systems and other building products.

As specialists in large commercial and industrial doors and similar products, we have no problems in the management and installation of large commercial canopy and terrace cover systems. We provide solutions for covering and protecting almost any size of outdoor area with either retractable or fixed roof systems in various fabric, vinyl, aluminium, polycarbonate, or glass materials. The aim is to provide useable and flexible outdoor covered space in a world where quite often space comes at a premium.

As a family run business we strive to only ever offer the best solutions for the most honest prices possible. We have no hidden extra prices, or discounts off ridiculous made up price lists, but simply take each requirement and offer the best solution which, hopefully, provides a product with many years of trouble free use.

We work with commercial clients on almost any type of building and provide excellent additions for outdoor spaces, restaurants, pubs, schools, colleges, care homes, hospitals, activity centres, and many other business types where outdoor areas need more protection and all year round accessibility.

Why Samson?

With over 20 years experience making sure that your al-fresco business works, Samson Awnings and Terrace Covers consultants will guide you through your choices and ensure that you achieve the results you need. We also only work with well-established and high quality manufacturers like Markilux to ensure the products are more than suitable for our diverse weather in the UK. German products are developed over many years in a weather system very similar to our own so are designed to cope with more than simply sun protection.
