Patio awnings and external sunblinds installed for the home
Since 1894 Deans have been installing awnings and the terms "patio awnings" and "patio blinds" are generally interchangeable in common use when describing domestic awnings for the home or terrace and the distinction between the two has become indistinct. We have simply used the term patio awnings to describe all home sun shade solutions.
For great value Deans patio awning products and external sun blinds for the home cannot be beaten - we manufacture many of our fine quality retractable electric and manual awning systems right here in our Wandsworth, South London factory.
At Deans we offer FREE estimates, FREE quotations and FREE fitting on all domestic retractable patio awning installations just call now on 020 8947 8937 or link to our contact page here.
Retractable external blinds or shades are generally purchased for reasons of providing shade where you can enjoy the outdoors and do not have to bother with sunglasses or the glinting rays of the sun, to prevent furnishings fading, or reduce the temperature of the home, and they can provide an outside entertaining area. These can be of the flat sheet variety for example like the Kenley, or the traditional Victorian awning, or the canopy type eg. The Dutch blind or canopy. These either can be electrically operated and can be fitted with automatic wind and sun sensors.
These are a relatively new innovation and Deans is really proud to exclusively distribute the Italian Pratic terrace awning, which is installed on its own attractive Pergola style timberor aluminum frame. This type of shade structure is ideal for extending terraces or patio decks and can withstand up to Force 10 windspeeds as registered on the Beaufort scale, presenting an opportunity to extend the outside dining entertaining season into those normally wet and cold weather months.

The Deans Kenley Cassette Awning
The Kenley is surprisingly big enough to cover the largest patio. Available as an electric or manual patio sunblind.
Introduced by Deans, a brand new product for 2013, the Deans Classic is designed for those discerning home owners who want to combine style and quality with value.
Traditional Victorian for the home
Victorian patio sun blind for the home. Designed for the traditional home where modern aluminium awnings are unsuitable. Manufactured by craftsmen in our London factory
Markilux 6000 cassette patio awning
The Markilux 6000 is the very top of the range by markilux which has achieved numerous design awards and was presented with the Red Dot Design Award in 2006
Markilux M5010 Patio awning
The system5010 is of the very highest quality with a complete one-piece cassette and an arm extension of up to a vast 4.00 meters. Available in four powder-coated colours.
The 3300 is suitable for heavy duty use where a more traditional squared look is required and makes it suitable for installation on sites where design requirements exceed cost consideration.
The Markilux 1650 with Lights
The conventional, if such a term can be used with this innovation, Model 1650 installation of lights has been within the cassette but Markilux awnings, with typical practical foresight, have seen a potential but very real, difficulty with this strategy which we, at Deans, have solved.
The Markilux M990 end fix patio awning
This brand new M990 has been developed for the new millennium by Schmitze-werke, the renowned German quality awning manufacturer for special applications where the fixing is limited only to the ends of the awning for example over a patio.
Markilux Pavilion Skylife Rain Awning
The Pavilion Patio Rain Awning has a unique feature which gives you two patio awnings at the same time: You either use it in the classical awning form or you transform it into a gable. It is really ideal for a situation where there is little head room and the product is required for use in wet weather.
The Markilux 700 small window sun shade
The 700 series is a drop arm awning system of lightweight but extraordinary strength because of its triangular layout. The M700 series sunblind will suit smaller patio windows where maximum shade is required to reduce heat gain or prevent fading.
Pergola 100 supported patio awning
Large scale solar protection for patios using the proven tecnology of the markilux 800 patio awning with additional support poles.
The Pergola 200 patio awning with support legs is ideally designed specifically for locations where there is limited headroom.
The Dutch Canopy or Dutch Blind
has also been around for many years, traditionally made of timber. Nowadays the Dutch Blind frame is usually constructed from aluminum extrusion with, in Deans case, high pressure diecast alloy corners and reinforced composite hinges making the Dutch Canopy easier to operate and more durable.
Optional extras to make your patio complete
We offer the complete range of optional extras from our own and the Deans range of awning supplements to make your patio ideally to be the complete outdoor living area.
Deans External conservatory awnings help prevent heat entering your conservatory and are far more effective than inside blinds.
