The Deans traditional shop blind is renowned for its strength and integrity as well as its faithfulness to the original John Dean design of the 19th century. This multiple unit Deans shop blind example has been installed at the fun music pub in Bristol interestingly named “Start The Bus”. The fabric covers have been specially decorated in multi colours to meet the designers demanding request. The work was carried out as part of our ongoing project work with the Mitchells and Butlers brand, a long time customer of Deans Blinds. Our Deans shop blinds are all constructed from the finest Harvested hardwoods and painted with environmentally sympathetic water based paints to give an old fashioned look with modern appeal.
For this site we also manufactured and installed cafe barriers to mark out the demesne of the outside drinking area allocated to the pub.
