Domestic Canopies

Dutch Canopies Bristol

Our standard Dutch Blinds, either fixed or retractable, are manufactured from a purpose-designed rigid aluminium extrusion that has a channel at the front into which is inserted a PVC fillet to which the fabric is attached with staples.

Why choose a dutch Canopy?

Dutch Canopies are a simple and effective solution if you’re looking to cool down your outdoor space or window areas. These traditional coverings block out the sun and provide a handy shaded area underneath. Made with sturdy frames and strong fabric, Dutch Canopies work great for homes that need a practical outdoor shade.

One important factor to consider when determining the projection of a retractable Dutch Blind is the fixing height. Because they are constructed as a quadrant, similar to a pram hood, should you require a two metre headway underneath the bottom frame of a Dutch Blind with a projection of one metre, then the fixing point must be three metres from the ground.

This will very often restrict the projection of these extremely attractive Canopies, however it also often means that they can be significantly more stable than a Folding Arm Awning in adverse weather conditions. Because of this good level of framework stability, Dutch Blinds not only provide extremely good sun and rain protection to both the inside and outside elements of a shopfront, but also provide an outstanding and eyecatching advertising medium as the perfect background for your logo and corporate signage, being practical for year round use in all but the stormiest of weather conditions.

The method of retraction, when required, is normally by way of a simple manual cord, pulley and cleat system, however, the simplicity of our standard Dutch Blind is another of it’s beauties, making it remarkably cost-effective and affordable.
