Why Choose a Pergola Awning Over a Standard awning?

Weinor Plaza Viva Pergola Awning - Anwingsouth

Here in the UK we are always getting caught out by the unpredictable weather – one minute it’s sunny, the next minute it rains, and then the wind picks up for good measure! This can wreak havoc on our outdoor activities and means spending time in the garden can be infrequent and disruptive.

However, there is a solution! Here at Awningsouth we supply a product called the Weinor Pergola Plaza Viva Awning. This is quite different from your standard awning in that it features two forward posts that provide support to the awning at the front. This provides extra benefits including being more wind resistant, rain resistant and can cover larger outdoor spaces. Read on to find out more…

Wind Resistant

Most traditional awnings will have an upper wind limit after which they need to be put away. The Weinor Pergola Awning, however, can withstand winds of up to force 6 (Beaufort Scale). This means that even if the sea breeze kicks in or the thermals build during the day, you can continue to use your awning all day long.

Protection From The Rain

If you are unlucky enough to get caught in a rain shower, the Weinor Pergola will keep you nice and dry. The adjustable telescopic posts can be lowered to allow water to drain off effectively and the super water repellent fabric will ensure the water runs away quickly.

Larger Projection

If you want to cover a very large outdoor area, a Weinor Pergola Awning is a great choice. The outer legs provide more support than a free hanging traditional awning, giving you the option to cover an area of up to 30 m². So, no matter what size of patio you have, a Weinor Pergola Awning will create a large area of shade and protection for all of the family to enjoy.

The Weinor Pergola Awning also provides the same great benefits as those of a traditional Awning including fantastic protection from the sun, a defined outdoor living space, an expansion of your indoor living space, shade for your home, reduction in window glare and privacy.
