The Kenley Commercial awning, Wimbledon
The Kenley commercial awning is Deans’ Premier cassette awning system, available in over 300 fabric colourways both plain or striped, as in this example seen here at the popular Light On The Common restaurant in Wimbledon. The fresh canary yellow design chosen for this Kenley commercial awning has been used a back drop for the application of the restaurant branding to both the main cover and to the demountable valance. The graphics have been applied through the use of our very own RAGS® branding process which provides clear text in even the finest fonts.
The awning frame may be powder coated to a chosen RAL colour and operation of the Kenley commercial awning can be by a simple winding handle or, a more popular option by a convenient remote wireless switch when the motorised option is specified. Kenley commercial awnings are available as single units or multiple units and may be linked to cover a width of over thirteen meters, all running from a single motor. When the electric operation is specified the awning may also be fitted with a device which automatically closes the awning in windy conditions, providing an extra degree of safety.
The Light On The Common restaurant opened in February 2014 with a warm and cosy, intimate feel. The restaurant is committed and proud to use only the best and freshest seasonal ingredients in their ever evolving menus. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and between 3.30pm & 6pm Monday to Saturday and 3.30pm & 5pm on Sundays. There is a selection of freshly prepared sandwiches, homemade cakes, scones with clotted cream & jam served with your choice of tea or coffee. You might consider adding a refreshing jug of lemonade or elderflower cordial, or treat yourselves with a glass of champagne with your afternoon tea.
The common, from which the restaurant gains its name, is Wimbledon Common on which there is a windmill, built in 1817 to grind corn, and now a museum devoted to windmills and woodworking. The cottage beside the windmill, was where Robert Baden-Powell began to write Scouting for Boys in 1907.
