What Do You Think Will Be The Future Big Changes For The Industry?

"Given the increase in sales of more ‘all weather awnings’, so structures like our Outdoor Living Pod, with a fixed frame and an opening roof that are more suited to the ever changing weather we experience here in the UK which can sometimes be four seasons in a day (sun,wind,rain,snow) over the next few years we will see fewer but larger retailers of ‘fixed frame type awnings’ who are specialising in this type of product, particularly given that such products require typically a 3 person install crew, specialist equipment/skill and large vehicles.

Additionally there will be more cross business (referral) which is why we have set up the first ever referral scheme for the external blind industry, allowing blinds retailers who get enquiries for external blinds but are not able to service them to pass them to us to handle professionally and earn a commission for successful sales obtained.

There will also with the increased awareness of the energy saving benefits of exterior window shading, much of this down to the hard work of our projects team several years ago educating the specification sector see more companies offering external roller blinds and tensioned roof blinds in the UK."
