Making awnings since 1894

PATIO AWNINGS and canopies for your home; FREE Estimates and FREE Fitting. All types of sun awnings, sun canopies, outside blinds, external blinds, retractable awnings and canopies manufactured and installed in London and the south east.

Since 1894 Deans, based in Wandsworth London, have been installing  patio awnings on British homes  and the terms "patio awnings" and "patio blinds" are generally interchangeable in common use when describing domestic awnings for the home or terrace. We have simply used the term patio awnings to describe all home sun shade solutions.
For great value Deans retractable 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.

Free advice is given in your home, by email or by telephone by people who know their products intimately.  All telephone calls will be handled by real people who know their products and can advise you on the correct purchase.

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 awning, 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.

New Pergola Style All Weather Rainproof Awning

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.
