We at Radiant have been making traditional Victorian awnings for a very long time now and for me they are still my favourite to look at. We have improved the design 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 the back. 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. The arms are designed to suit the exact requirements of the building and are bent by hand as they were when the Victorians designed them. The awning is operated with a traditional pull down pole.
