Deans Blinds nominated for 5 Excellence awards by the BBSA

The finalists of the prestigious British Blinds and Shutters (BBSA) Excellence Awards  for 2022 have just been announced and Deans Blinds are proud to been nominated five times for awards including twice in the award for “The Most Unusual use of a Solar Product”  category and twice in the “Best External Shading Product Category”.

The BBSA trade body is the oldest of its type in the United Kingdom and was established in 1919. As a founder member of this Association, which now numbers nearly 500 UK businesses, it is particularly pleasing to for us to have been singled out for such a variety of winning categories.

“The Most Unusual use of a Solar Product”  category our nominations are for the installation of numerous bespoke, branded, promotional canopies commissioned by the Sainsbury Supermarket Group and, secondly, for a particularly interesting application of awnings  on an exclusive London residence which involved lifting six panel canopies with a crane in order for them to  be installed to a  steel pergola on the seventh floor of a residential building.

In the “Best External Shading Product Category” our Finalists for an award are for five branded retractable Greenwich® awnings installed on the London Louis Vuitton Flagship store and also for 39 Traditional bespoke branded Awnings installed to the newly renovated Royal Exchange in Central London.

Finally, we have also been chosen as a finalists in the “Best New Product or Service” category for the Louis Vuitton installation where we utilised our unique RAGS® Digital Graphics process to produce a client requested specific colour for the  fabric cover which was not part of any standard fabric range. The awnings were then branded in Louis Vuitton using the same RAGS® process.

We shall elaborate more on each of these awards in further posts – so watch this space!
