Traditional Victorian Awnings

We have manufactured Traditional Victorian Awnings for many years using the highest quality products.

At Radiant Blinds, we have improved the Traditional Victorian Awnings over time to make sure 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 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.

Our factory team will paint the lath in a colour of your choice.  Ideally this will be the same as the shop front so it looks part of the overall installation.  Alternatively, a different colour can make a feature of the shop blind.  The arms and slides are traditionally black.  However we can, if you choose, have them finished in the same colour as the box.


We have a huge collection of fabrics to choose from.  There are plain colours or stripes depending on what you want to achieve with the overall look.  We can attach a straight or scalloped valance should you wish – it’s all about personal taste.

Making the awning or canopy of your shop stand out

To really make the Traditional Victorian Awnings stand out, many of our customers choose to have signwriting. Our experienced signwriters handpaint the covers, valances, or both. Since these shop blinds form a fantastic part of any business’s advertising, our customers often choose to have their any company logo or branding on the main covers. The valances can carry names, phone numbers and web addresses making them an impressive marketing tool. You can do as much or as little as you like. It’s a great opportunity to make your shop or business stand out to passing trade.
