We at Radiant Blinds, specialise in traditional Victorian awnings and have company origins tracing back 150 years making this delightful design. Often called the Butchers Blind they the most traditional awning of all. 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. In the old timber version, the water or snow would rest on the wood and slowly eat into it. However, we still use hardwood cheeks and a timber front lath and tacker. The arms are designed to suit the exact requirement of the building and are often bent by hand as they were when the Victorians designed them. The awning is operated with a traditional pull down pole.
