Client: Mabel’s Tavern
Job: Traditional Victorian Awnings
Radiant Blinds carried out a refurbishment on these 2 Traditional Victorian Awnings for Mabel’s Tavern, London. Radiant Blinds supplied replacement covers and valances to the existing victorian awnings incorporating the Shepherd Neame logo. The acrylic covers were manufactured in the Radiant Blinds factory and then hand painted. The black acrylic material was cut and stitched to size and then fitted to the existing awnings. New laths, tackers, chains and plates were also supplied. The laths and tackers were painted black in our factory to give a smart, uniform overall appearance.
Refurbishment of an existing awnings
The refurbishment of an existing awning can be a cost-effective way to update a shopfront. As Radiant Blinds has been trading for many years with a long serving workforce, they are able to carry out repairs and renewals of existing parts which can save the client having the added expense of replacing these. This can result in a fresh, new look without incurring the expense of a new victorian awning in its complete form.
Radiant Blinds will work with the client, designers, architects or project managers to ensure the client receives the best advice and without compromising on quality or service.
Mabel’s Tavern is open 7 days a week and services great beer. There is a diverse choice of delicious, fresh meals from the main menu as well as great sandwiches and burgers.
