TRADITIONAL SHOP BLINDS
This standard retractable Traditional Shop Blind is constructed from sustainably sourced European redwood timber, treated with three coats of exterior paint, and the top then covered in roofing felt. The box houses a spring operated roller to which is attached the fabric, in this instance Para acrylic cloth. The fabric is fixed to the timber front lath using clout nails, making it therefore very simple to change just the fabric as and when required. The lath is supported by custom designed arms and slides which are forged from 22mm round mild steel and supported by safety chains. Operation of the blind is with a simple pull-out pole. The counter-balance spring roller keeps the fabric taut when extended and holds the blind shut when retracted. It is common to add a logo to the main cover, and very often a signwriting detail to an add-on valance. The main advantages of these Traditional Shop Blinds over the more modern folding-arm awning is firstly, because the lower arm fixing point forms a triangulation, it makes these blinds a lot more stable in windy conditions, and therefore perfect for shops to use to cover over their pavement produce display, And secondly, because of their more traditional look and construction, many local planning authorities prefer to specify this particular system of sun and rain protection for todays High Street image, particularly in conservation areas.
Here we see five Traditional Shop Blinds providing the perfect backdrop on which to apply the corporate logo of the brewery that owns this public house in central London. Traditional Shop Blinds are one of our best selling speciality products because of their exceptional versatility as well as their appeal to local planning authorities.
This Traditional Shop Blind is over seven meters wide with a three meter projection. The roller uses a double spring mechanism and the front lath has been internally reinforced with an aluminium box-section along it's full length. As well as providing exceptional sun protection, the signwritten logo forms this hairdressing salon's only signage.
