How our framed retractable awnings work

A pergola awning is a retractable garden awning that extends out on a framework and can subsequently cover larger areas along with being more rigid and durable than a folding arm awning. Like a folding arm awning, fabric is wound round a rollertube inside cassette headbox, with the fabric connected to the leadrail that extends and retracts with the awning. The fabric is kept under optimum tension at each position by a combination of a double coiled spring inside the leadrail attached to and put under tension via hi-tensile belts concealed in each side guide that connect back to the rollertube. Additionally, the fabric is locked in the guides to each side thanks to a ziplock mechanism which gives further durability in windy conditions.

Thanks to the fabric being locked within the side guides along with an integrated guttering within the leadrail, water runs down the fabric and out a punched slot to the left and right side of the leadrail which conveniently lines up with a hopper on each of the post uprights ensuring water evacuates into and out of the base of the post uprights and doesn’t splash on the terrace.

The full cassette headbox conceals the fabric when the pergola awning is not in use and is cleverly designed with a lid that unhinges to allow for any maintenance or remedial requirements in the future. The slim pergola framework elegantly frames the outdoor space, whilst optional support beams, that span between the guides provide additional rigidity in exposed locations and can also contain LED lighting.

Fixing brackets that are concealed behind the awning cassette allow a safe installation to load-bearing facades, whilst the front posts attach to almost all ground surface from patios to decking through a concealed galvanised steel foot. Bespoke brackets and even goal post frameworks can be designed and produced to allow our pergola awnings to be installed in all applications, even freestanding away from a building.

Pergola Awning Reviews

It looks really lovely

Just a short note to thank you very much for my awning.  It looks really lovely and it was great, just came in time for the hot spell.  I must say that the two workmen came and were very good and made a good job of fitting, and clearing up and leaving everything tidy.

110 out of a 100

I am writing to say how lucky I was to select Caribbean Blinds to carry out the project at my house. The team were brilliant a nice group of lads and so friendly. Your office staff were great also. Had the 1st-floor awning out all afternoon as was streaming into my study. Overall 110 out of a 100… well impressed. And that is not easy to achieve from me.

Cobbold - Winchester

Very professional

The 3 gentlemen were very professional and did very well to protect the patio walking glass and tiles, despite dreadful weather. I am very happy with their job, and I am looking forward to trying it out once we are getting the scorching sun!

Zhou - Fulham

Highly recommend Caribbean Blinds

Excellent customer care and service from all aspects. Quick job and good quality product. I would highly recommend Caribbean Blinds.

Loizou - London

Wonderful efficient local company

We are very happy with our new Cuba awning and may it provide us with many years of pleasure. Your workmen were very polite, tidy and contentious, with the right amount of being sociable. Totally happy with everything from beginning to end. I know it was quite long winded but we needed to be completely happy that we was choosing the right product as it is a lot of money and there are so many people on the internet selling for a lot less. Thanks once again and we will certainly spread the word when our neighbours see it about your wonderful efficient local company.

Everything we hoped for

The canopy is everything we hoped for and came in use for the first time this weekend when we had a dinner party. We were able to sit outside until the guests departed at 2 am! Your company has been very professional throughout, at each stage and with all your staff. Even better that it’s British. I would recommend you to anyone who asked.

Henson - Woodford Green

Pleased and impressed

We are both very pleased and impressed with the installation of our awning and the professional way in which you and your team processed our order in such a short space of time. We used it for the first time today, a far cry from gazebos and parasols and looking forward to many more hours of sophisticated comfort. Many thanks for a great service and product.

Buck - Suffolk

Very happy with the product

Very happy with the product and the fitters – everything went very smoothly and the awning looks great.

Boaler - Harpenden

Very impressed with the service

I am very happy with the awning, it has given our courtyard a wonderful feel, plus will provide the shade we need. I have been very impressed with the service your company has provided, right from meeting you at Grand Designs to the fitting today by two great guys who done a lovely job.
