Traditional Shop Blinds
At Worth & Co Blinds we still manufacture the traditional Victorian box blind from scratch the same way as we did 100 years ago.
The traditional Victorian shop blind is still widely used today being probably the most durable type of awning still manufactured, with its multiple fixing points it puts less strain on the shop facia unlike the modern type of foldaway blind.
The blind box which houses the roller is constructed from timber which can be finished in either a wood stain or a painted finish in the colour of your choice. The front lath is also manufactured from timber where particular attention is paid to the front rail, if required we can router the facia with a decorative finish to compliment the traditional look.
The blind arms are manufactured from black iron, where they are skilfully formed in house to bend neatly around your shop facia. The blind arms are then fitted to a pair of slide irons which are mounted to your wall on specially made iron castings. The traditional box blinds are extended by a means of a blind pole, where the blind arms are then pushed up the slide irons to give sufficient headway clearance.
We have a wide selection of plain or striped acrylic materials or reinforced PVC materials. Your choice of blind covering is then glued and hand sewn to the roller the traditional way.
We offer professional sign writing facilities so your company logo can be printed to the blind cover and valance if required. See Graphics & Signwriting for more information on sign writing your blind.
If you have an existing traditional awning we can generally refurbish these with new covers. If required we can replace any damaged or rotten timber work and straighten blind arms if they have been damaged.
