Mr & Mrs Reddy having recently moved into a seafront property in Southsea were after an awning to maximize their enjoyment from the outdoor space, however, it needed to be extremely robust due to their coastal location (see image below). Following a recommendation from a friend who already benefited from a premium Caribbean brand awning which they had installed over a decade ago and was still functioning like new, they contacted us to discuss the options.
Based on their exposed property, our surveyor advised the strongest folding arm awning manufactured in the UK, the Cuba model. With quadruple cable tensioned arms which ensure a taut fabric at every position along with drop forged joints in the elbows that can deal with flexing from windy conditions the Cuba was designed to cope with the demands of the most exposed and demanding applications and is used commercially along with residentially for this reason. It also features a full cassette casing that provides a neat hide away along with protecting the fabric and operating mechanism from inclement weather plus is motorised as standard for ease with a built in wind protection sensor to automatically retract it from severe winds.
Post installation, the client dropped our team the below email, outlining their smooth, seamless journey with us:
“We have been impressed by your all round service from our initial contact to the installation of the awning. All of the Caribbean Blinds people have been pleasant, informative, efficient and professional to deal with so we are absolutely satisfied with your service and product. We look forward to many years of use of our new awning! We approached you at the suggestion of a friend who has had her awning for some years now, and in turn we would not hesitate to recommend you to others.”
