NEW! Thomas Sanderson introduces smart electric pergola awnings Launching March 2024

Thomas Sanderson, a leading UK window dressing and garage door specialist, has unveiled a new range of smart electric pergola awnings.

Offering a more permanent and expansive shading solution than traditional awnings, pergola awnings create an outdoor room, perfect for entertaining, relaxing, or simply enjoying the fresh air.

“With the UK awning market experiencing significant growth and searches for ‘outdoor living furniture’ increasing by 67% in 2023 vs 2022*, people are now spending more time outdoors than before the pandemic. Thomas Sanderson is responding to the ever-growing trend of creating luxurious outdoor living spaces,” says Abi Clewley, product manager at Thomas Sanderson.

“Our premium pergola awnings cater to this demand perfectly. Blurring the lines between indoors and out, they offer extensive coverage, are ideal for larger areas and come with a host of smart features for ultimate convenience, like app, remote or voice control for shade levels, lighting, and even heating.

Crafted with premium materials and available in a wide range of on-trend fabric colours and frame finishes, these awnings are not only highly durable but also stylishly complement your home’s architecture. They provide exceptional sun protection, ensuring a comfortable outdoor experience even on the brightest days. And thanks to their versatile design, they’re engineered to withstand various weather conditions, making them perfect for enjoying your outdoor space year-round. Plus, with our professional installation and ongoing support, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing your pergola awning is built to last.”
