Deans Classic Commercial Awnings Installed at the Benenden Community Shop

Deans commercial awnings

The Benenden Community Shop is firmly at the centre of the Cranbrook community.

For a great number of local people, the shop provides an essential lifeline, for others. It is valued as a convenience which is welcome. Everyone will find something new at the shop.

A key element is that the entire business will be operated by the people for the community. The store is staffed by a professional management team, supported by loyal volunteers.

Benenden Community Shop Limited comprises of over 300 shareholders. They have invested a massive sum of £70,000.

The shop’s Shareholders are members of a Community Benefit Society under the terms of the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014.

The Shareholders vote for, and stand for election to, the Management Committee which has overall responsibility for the fantastic enterprise.

The business plan can be seen online. It shows a professional business model with solid financial viability with a conservative outlook.

The investment has supported the refit of the shop premises. Added were counters, chillers, all necessary equipment, and the purchase of initial stock.

The awnings refit was done by Deans Blinds and Awnings UK. It was a Deans Classic commercial awning. Deans say the product is available in either manual or electric format. It can be up to 12.00 meters wide wide arm extensions from 1.5 to 3.5 meters.

Introducing the Markilux 879 Skylight Lantern Blind

London – July 8, 2016 – Deans Blinds and Awnings UK, a renowned UK blinds and awnings manufacturer and installer, got an interesting job down on the south coast. A particular client wanted more than just a simple plain cover to their skylight lantern blind. And so the Markilux 879 Skylight Lantern Blind was installed. The stunning Swela bold black and white stripes on it make a dramatic statement.The product was one of the first Markilux Tracfix skylight lanterns to be installed in the UK.

A perfect shading system for the skylight lantern or smaller glazed patio. It is a modern alternative to pleated roof blinds.

The attractive round cassette made from extruded aluminium is powder-coated. It allows for the most light when retracted and the fabric is tucked away

The awning cover is guided along lateral strong aluminium guide tracks. A special tensioning system using a combined elastic and kevlar belt provides ideal cover tension when the awning is fully extended. If only partially extended, the cover could have a natural tendency to sag. As a result of this design feature, virtually invisible stainless steel wires prevent sag in the cover.

All components need minimal maintenance and are protected against corrosion.

The Markilux 879 underglass awning offers technology at its best for large and small glass areas. Special gas ­tensioned springs tension the cover really well. Quiet retraction gliders also make the retraction and extension operation more quiet.
