This restaurant in Tunbridge Wells chose the Victorian awning to adorn their frontage and their signwriting choice is very eye catching. 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.
