Made The Same Way As We Made Them 120 Years Ago
Deans have manufactured and installed awnings since 1894. We are the only company in London who can authentically say that we produce real Victorian awnings. Our castings date back to the end of the 19th century, if your requirement is for an authentic Victorian awning, and not merely a replica, then we will provide you with just that. These awnings are manufactured in our London factory by craftsmen to the same exacting standards that they were 120 years ago. It is frequently copied, but only a 120 year old company like ours can make the real thing.
With our in house carpentry shop we can recreate any style of traditional awning. Just from an old photograph if you have one. Specially designed traditional blind boxes can be made to order. All timber work receives a base coat then two oil based undercoats and a further oil based top coat.
You can be sure that most Victorian awnings, or shop blinds as they would have been called then, would have been manufactured and installed by Deans Blinds and Awnings. We still make them in the same way with mature timbers, sourced only from certified harvested forests and manufactured in the “old way” by hand in our London factory. The metal work on the awnings is created in the same style as the castings of old and produced in old fashioned sand casts to give that authentic Victorian look.
