Dutch canopies have been used in homes for decades. Increasingly they are being utilised by high street businesses (amongst others) to provide signage and so help attract new customers. Our canopies can be made either fixed position or fully retractable to suit your specific circumstances. Many frame styles are available with “no maintenance” white powder coating or anodised satin finished aluminium hardware. Fabrics are either acrylic canvas or PVC and can be supplied fully printed with logos. Manual operation is by way of a cord and pulley system and electric by motor and remote control or switch.


Traditional blinds are usually supplied with arms and slides and occasionally with trellis extension arms. Pivot or ‘shoe’ arms are also available. The blinds with arms and slides or trellis arms are supplied with a pull down pole for operation. Those supplied with pivot arms can be operated by gearbox or electric motor as well as by means of a pole.

The blinds are wound on helical spring rollers, or on geared or electric motorised rollers. The rollers are housed in specially constructed wooden blind boxes with wooden front laths of a raised panel or ogee profiles. Blind boxes were originally fixed above the name fascia or entablature, and this allowed for the blind cloth to be set at a steep angle which gave a pleasing aspect to the blind, better ventilation and better weathering.
The present tendency is for blind boxes to be fitted below the name fascia panel and consequently a much flatter blind is the result. This sometimes calls for the introduction of brass rainwater drain eyelets on the cover. Wherever possible, consideration should be given to positioning the blind box at the highest level.

Where no wall is available, and possibly a larger area of coverage is required, such as a restaurant terrace seating area for example, we have suggest a back-to-back awning system specifically for this purpose. Initially we have to create a goalpost arrangement of sufficient and adequate strength to carry two back-to-back awnings. Assuming we have suitable grounds to work with, we would normally start by concreting in the upright posts and securing to this the crossbar, all of which would be suitably fabricated in either treated timber or box-section aluminium or steel.

​If the grounds are not suitable to dig, we can fill a large planter with concrete for the upright posts and turn this into a timber slatted seating area or similar afterwards.

Providing this goalpost is constructed in a permanent, non-movable and robust manner, then we can attach virtually any of the manual or electric awnings from our comprehensive and extensive range to either side of the crossbar, potentially creating a covered dining area of up to 50 square meters with one unit. Add to this remote control heating and lighting to create the most perfect and luxurious outdoor terrace catering solution available.


All outside blinds & parasols can be recovered so wether you just fancy a change in colour or the existing cover is ripped, torn or generally to old to repair then why not consider recovering your existing blind. A new cover can bring a whole new lease of life into your blind a with a wide range of colour & patterns available it can often makes more sense to recover than renew.

New covers  or valances can be branded with company logos and letter fonts can be matched up easily so why not take advantage and promote your business with a low cost but long term form of advertising. We can recover all styles of blinds and awning systems regardless if we installed the blind in the first instance or not and  are confident that if you give us a call you on be disappointed.

Shade Sails have become a ever popular solution for the interiors market, they offer a fresh and innovative to fabric architecture in a interior setting with the patented ’Self tensioning sails offering great flexibility with a very clean, elegant detailing and simple installation process for both domestic conservatories and commercial areas such as Schools, Colleges Universities, Health Centres, Museums, Art Galleries and lots more besides.

Shade Sails are elegant, eye pleasing and natural complement to both traditional and modern tastes. They are an excellent alternative to fitted blinds for lanterns, roof lights and conservatory roofs. The sails are made from an advanced stretch fabric that creates a sail that is easy to install or remove and that can be cleaned in a domestic washing machine. Our unique self-tensioning edge increases the versatility of the sail by allowing the sail to adapt to fit the fixing positions, creating a taut, smooth surface every time.

Shade sails have curved edges to tension the fabric and keep it smooth. These curves create a distinctive, sculptural aesthetic and help maintain an open aspect when significant shading is required. The sails can also be used to great effect when providing only partial coverage, in order to shade, for example, just the south facing aspect. Multiple overlapping sails generate combinations of direct and diffuse light and on sunny days this creates wonderful pools of light and shadow that move with the sun to create a very natural, outdoor feel.
