2. British Made Awnings

Deans Blinds are proud that all our classic awnings are British made. Each awning is hand-built in our London workshop. We use high-grade hardwood timber to manufacture our housings. The arms and brackets are steel-forged to exact specifications including any curvature. Finishes provide an additional level of resilience. All our metalwork is powder-coated and timber-work is hand-treated. Fabrics are solution-dyed to improve resistance to weather and extend the life span.

3. The Weather

The British weather is one of the key considerations for terrace and patio awnings. Trying to ensure an all weather outdoor experience through the seasons is key to maximising your potential. Our range of retractable awnings are a popular solution for a terrace and come with remote or manual operation. All our terrace awning solutions are robust and are built to handle wind speeds of 8 on the Beaufort scale. We also have some.

4. Bespoke Manufacture

Each residential awning or canopy is built to your bespoke requirements. The first stage is to carry out a site visit where measurements are taken and any other considerations are noted. The awning is then manufactured by hand with a level of precision that comes from years of experience. The finished awning is then ready for installation in your home or garden by our expert team of fitters.

5. Making the most of your Garden Space

Maximising your garden space can create another room, especially in the summer months. We have a number of stylish patio awning solutions for both large or smaller spaces. We have fixed and retractable awnings, free-standing modular systems, plus accessories like jumbrellas and directional infra-red heaters, which use 30% less energy than gas or quartz radiating heaters.

6. Sustainability

Sustainability is important to us and we try to ensure that the materials we use come from a sustainable source with the correct accreditations. We also have a dedicated Environmental Manager and their role is to ensure all staff adhere to our environmental policy, both at work and on site.
