We’re at the FIT Show

The UK’s only dedicated event for the window, door, hardware and flat glass industry – FIT Show – is returning for its tenth year at the NEC Birmingham, from the 23rd to 25th May 2023. We’re pleased to be making our debut at the event, on their ten year anniversary and when due to climate change, legislation, consumer behaviour etc is the ideal time for installers to be offering a complete glazing package including shading.  

Wherever glazing is installed, there is an opportunity and need for external shading. Our products are a natural addition to an installer’s product portfolio, increasing average sale values and boosting profits. The two products go hand-in-hand, so the show is a natural fit for us to showcase our solutions to the sector.

On our stand R51, installers will be able to see our entire award-winning range of external shading systems, all manufactured right here in the UK – in less than two weeks!  Additionally, our newly launched awning and screen fabric collection will be showcased at the exhibition. These fabrics offer unbeatable solar heat, light, UV and rain protection and are produced using premium acrylic fibres that do not stretch, tear, warp or fade and thanks to a nanotech TEXgard coating prevent dirt and water clinging to the surface, generating a self-clean effect. 

In addition, we will be launching our latest awning and pergola sales aids, including sample kits that enable installers to effortlessly sell our products, as well as allowing end customers to touch and feel sections of the solution and see the superior quality and finishing touches first-hand.

Our team are looking forward to meeting with forward-thinking installers who are looking to grow their sales with the addition of external shading. At Caribbean Blinds, we are committed to helping each and every installer maximise sales of external shading in conjunction with glazing and we welcome the opportunity to discuss how our products can be added seamlessly to their product offerings, providing a profitable additional revenue stream.
