1 x Traditional Victorian Awning – Little Waltham, Chelmsford….

Private Client, Little Waltham, Chelmsford….

We fitted this traditional Victorian awning to our private client in Little Waltham recently. We’ve been making these types of awnings (also known as butcher’s blinds) for a very long time now and as you would expect, we’ve become pretty good at it by now. We have improved the Victorian awning over time to ensure they can cope with the British weather.   For example we have replaced some of the boxing with a more resistant aluminium casing at the top and back as in the old timber version, the water or snow would rest on the wood and slowly eat into it. We still use hardwood cheeks and a timber front lath and tacker and the arms are designed and bent to suit the exact requirements of the building. The awning is operated by a pull down pole.
