Recessed commercial awnings are the neatest awning solution when you are having a complete shop front refurbishment and it is a good idea to involve the Deans Design Team at an early stage to ensure a sufficient substrate is available for a recessed commercial awning. The Deans SQ2 recessed commercial awning is unique amongst similar products in that the front profile has been designed to merge completely with the shopfront facia. No other recessed commercial achieves this feat and, when retracted, other recessed awning front profiles will, unlike the SQ2, stand untidily proud of the shop front.
These SQ2 recessed commercial awnings, seen here at the newly re-opened Good Fairy Antiques market in the Portobello Road, is a classic example. The awning profile has been powder coated to match the shop facia and, as can be seen in the images of the awning retracted, a completely flush fitting results. The awning is remotely controlled by a wireless switch and the grey fabric selected blends perfectly with the surrounding building features.
Portobello Road is home to the world’s largest antiques market with over 1,000 dealers selling every kind of antique and collectible. Visitors flock from all over the world to discover one of London’s best loved landmarks which contains the most extensive selection of antiques in Britain. Portobello is really several markets in one, Saturday being the day when all are in full swing. Then you can experience a mile of hustle, haggle, colour and energy. The feature of Saturdays is the opening of hundreds of antique and specialist shops and stalls. There are some talented and bizarre street performers to be spotted too.
