Beamish Museum – Traditional Awning

In January 2022 Deal Direct Blinds manufactured and installed a traditional awning at Beamish, the Living Museum of the North, near the town of Stanley in County Durham.

Beamish Museum were in the process of planning, designing and creating a new 1950s village.
Manufacturing the awning proved to be a challenge as it was to be a replica of a lovely gentleman’s café which was initially located in Wingate in County Durham.

John Café is part of the Front Street terrace at the museum. The 1950’s terrace looks fantastic and were so proud to have been part of this recreation of such a special local family’s heritage. We had to ensure this was a complete replica and felt the weight on our shoulders to ensure the family was happy with our project. To overcome this, we had numerous meetings with the architect and builders who were designing this village in Beamish.

We sold this awning to Beamish from them being recommended to use us, we directed them to look at our reviews as we base our self on a fantastic service and products and wanted to reassure them, we would provide them with a five-star service, and we were the people to make this project happen!
Following on from this job we have gained a load of extra followers on our social media platforms and gained more jobs off the back of this from domestic and commercial customers wanting quotations and installations of awnings, which is amazing from people seeing how incredible our craftmanship is and we pride our self on this, we really do endeavour to always thrive off our 5-star service.
Following on from this installation we have learnt that anything in possible and we will endeavour to do all that is possible to ensure our customers receive everything they desire.

Traditional Awning Summary

The Traditional awning is otherwise known as the Victorian awning or sometimes called the British awning.
The traditional awning has gained recognition because it is the style of awning most commonly associated with shop, hotel and restaurant facades from the Victorian and Edwardian era. It is in fact the only awning suitable for conservation areas of historical interest, and is often viewed favourably by local conservation officers in planning applications.
The design and construction of our retractable Victorian shop awning is beautifully simple, yet exceptionally strong. The canopy offers superb branding potential and our in-house experts can confidently match any corporate I.D. or logo associated with your business.
