SQ2 Recessed commercial awnings, Manchester
Three SQ2 recessed commercial awnings have recently been installed by us at the David M Robinson Jewellers in St Ann’s Square, Manchester. This neat contemporary recessed commercial awning design is unique amongst similar products in that the front profile has the ability to merge completely with the shopfront facia. No other commonly specified recessed awning can achieve this feat as, when retracted, the awning front profile on other systems will still stand untidily proud of the shop front. The SQ2 awning profiles at Robinson’s have been powder coated in bronze to assimilate into the shop facia and, when the awning is retracted, a completely flush fitting results. The SQ2 recessed commercial awnings have been installed with a motorised function which involves their being are remotely controlled by a wireless switch which can be protected with a potentiometer sensing devise to ensure retraction in windy conditions.

St Anne’s Square, in the centre of Manchester is a pedestrianised square in the heart of Manchester and home to St Ann’s Church and the Royal Exchange Theatre. The buildings around St. Ann’s Square and along King Street have developed into the most fashionable shopping district in Manchester. King Street was the first city centre street to be given over to pedestrian use, in 1976, and the Square followed in the early 1980s. Both have been restored with more appropriately designed schemes in the 1990s.
