Marlesbury is one of our bespoke awnings developed especially for the commercial market and is based on a traditional design. Incorporating fine metalwork the elegant design and its classic lines mean that it is especially suited to installations where there is a requirement for a traditional appearance without the cumbersome look of some commercial awnings. The Marlesbury commercial awning is particularly suited to the pub and restaurant trade where robust cover is a requirement. This Marlesbury awning is installed on to the entrance of the luxurious Gonville Hotel in Cambridge and acts as a focal entry point. Of special note is the Deco awning box we have created to protect the fabric cover when the awning is retracted. The awning cover has been branded in the distinctive GH logo with additional sub text which we have created using our own unique RAGS® graphics process.
