All types of sun shade and all weather canopy solutions are installed in addition to electric interior blinds for skylight lanterns and bifold doors.

Deans are distributors and factory trained installers of Markilux awnings, Weinor awnings and Lewens awning ranges and the Pratic all weather pergola cover system. This has involved our installation teams visiting our partners factories in Germany and Italy for all the latest.

From the simple traditional Victorian shop blind to the latest modern external retractable electric awning or canopy with solar control. The name Deans Blinds and Awnings says it all. We have been manufacturing and installing the highest quality external blinds and sun shading systems for customers since the year 1894!

Weinor Cassetta awning

Our customer, the Bartek Deli, Wembley High St,  needed a shading solution for his goods outside the shop with a lot of public traffic.

By using the pillars on the shop front we were able to fix two Weinor Cassitas which had a width of 5.3m each.  We matched the grey fabric to the signage to give a nice finish to the overall look of the store.

Camden Stables Market.  We won the first phase of the Camden Market rejuvenation project starting with the new Pizzeria and Poppies Fish & Chips Stalls at the entrance of the Stables Market underneath the iconic Camden Rail Bridge.  The market owners wanted to keep a traditional look whilst having a vibrant colour to match in with the Camden Lifestyle of music and Art. We have also now been asked to complete a further awning to the side of the stalls.  We are looking forward to a continued relationship with Stables Market Ltd as more work is undertaken.
