Gail’s Bakery have recently opened their new shop in Teddington, Middlesex and we supplied them with four new traditional Victorian awnings. At Radiant Blinds, we have improved the traditional Victorian awnings 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. 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 timber front lath and tacker. The awning is operated with a traditional pull down pole.
