Over at the edge of the of the Suffolk and Norfolk border there is a stunning traditional hotel called The Oaksmere, it is situated in the tranquil countryside of Eye overlooking acers of scenic private grounds that have been carefully tended to by their groundskeepers. There is even a life size pirate ship that will greet you at the entrance of the hotel, it seems that every corner you take there is something that is satisfying to the eye.

You will also be welcomed by a construction site as the hotel is currently having some exciting new changes made and we were delighted to be a part of the project. The traditional architecture will now meet an elegant contemporary style. The new restaurant and lounge will head out towards the courtyard area where there will be additional seating to relax in the sun under our exquisite awnings.

Our team had fitted two awnings, each measuring 6.5 metres wide with a projection of 3 metres to minimise any solar glare penetrating the 6 long glass features. It was a very strenuous job for our technicians due to the size and weight of the external blinds, with our experience and precise planning we were able to fix both awnings to the steel structure safely and securely.

The landscape fabric was specially selected by our clients to match the rest of the building design, there will be greenery added in between the glass at a later stage to create contrast between the colours. Above all four of the doors we have mounted 4 infra-red heaters to provide warmth and additional LED light strips to illuminate the courtyard area and enhance the alfresco atmosphere. Once this project is complete this hotel will certainly be bustling with customer and we look forward to revisiting very soon so we can show you the end result.

These external shading products have been designed and manufactured to withstand harsh elements which is why they are increasingly popular with commercial properties. At Caribbean Blinds we use the finest fabrics, technology and aluminium hardware to provide our clients with award winning products.
