Classic commercial awning for The General Wine Company, Liphook
This large Classic commercial awning, installed at The General Wine Company, Liphook, has been dramatically branded in the logo style of the client with a separate, weighted, valance printed with additional useful text. The branding is carried out using Deans unique RAGS® graphic process which can handle logos of any size with an imressive degree of accuracy and depth of colour. The Classic commercial awning is one of our most robust commercial awnings and is most suited to installations of a greater width or arm extension. In the case of The General Wine Company the large extension was a requirement with the objective, not only of highlighting the location, but also providing maximum solar control, essential for the products within the store. Incorporating powder coated aluminium framework which, in this case, has been coloured to match the building paintwork contrasts boldly with the blue of the Classic awning cover. The Classic commercial awning is a robust, heavy-duty system that comes with a protective hood that sits above the awning and protects it from the elements when retracted.

Liphook grew as a coaching stop between London and Portsmouth during the 17th and 18th centuries. It served as a base during both World Wars for Canadian troops stationed in Southern England. The military depot continued its military function until it was closed in 1968. Another claim to fame for Liphook was that it recorded the highest temperature in the UK in 1983 at 33.7C.
