The rise in popularity of inside-outside living, and stylish ‘grand designs’ residential building projects, has meant that Aura is increasingly asked to create canopy schemes for residential properties.
Rather than a opting for a conservatory or off-the-shelf scissor arm canopies or awnings (which are not designed for high wind loads) we are finding that our residential customers appreciate the elegance and quality that a canopy from Aura can bring to their garden. Not to mention the flexibility of having an outside covered space that is usable year round and has a design life of 20 years plus.
Any of our modular canopy styles, which you can view using the links on the right hand side of this page, can be installed in a residential setting but if your brief is more unique then we can create a bespoke design too. Whichever design you opt for you can be confident in its durability because it will be engineered and built to withstand UK weather conditions for your area in accordance with British Standards (a minimum of 120 km/h (75mph) winds and 10 cm of snow load).
Bespoke retractable canopies for an elegant terrace solution
If you require flexible shade coverage over a terrace an automated retractable canopy could be the best option. Using technology and know-how gained from designing and installing retractable canopies on the decks of super yachts Aura have developed an elegant canopy system that can be furled and unfurled at the touch of a button. You can choose to have more than one open position and select from a huge range of technical fabrics with a choice of colour, texture and density. These fabrics also look stunning when lit at night to take advantage of their light diffusing properties, so please do discuss your lighting ideas with us when you enquire.
Aura will can work with your architect to integrate the canopy into your new build or to provide a retrofit solution which will achieve the most elegant aesthetic and certainly prove an addition that will enhance the enjoyment and value of your home for years to come.
Please see the images on this page for an example of this type of canopy and don’t hesitate to call us on 01329 846 518 to discuss your requirements.
