Shop awning fabric replacement in Bury St Edmunds

Shop awning for Paul Stephens in Bury St Edmunds

Shop awning for Paul Stephens in Bury St Edmunds

We have changed the fabric on many old fashioned shop awnings in Bury st Edmunds. The latest job was for Paul Stevens in The Traverse, Bury St Edmunds.
There was potential for parking problems but PCSO Jo had a common sense attitude and kindly allowed us to complete the job unhindered.
Ivor is seen running the awning in and out using a pole before handing it back to Paul Stevens.

Roller blinds in conservatory & shaped bottoms with chrome poles

Most of the time we choose a shade of magnolia when we decorate our homes. This reflects the colours we use for blinds and other furnishings. It make a refreshing change for Baileys blinds to install roller blinds in bolder and brighter colours.

The roller blinds were made by Baileys Blinds in the Eastern Way industrial unit in Bury St Edmunds. The carnival canary fabric is mounted on 28mm diameter aluminium tubes and is raised and lowered by a chain operated unit mounted on one side.

The roller blinds are fitted so that the tops of the poles run in line along the conservatory window frames. The raising and lowering mechanisms are white in colour to blend in with the conservatory.

The shaped bottoms are cut out of the fabric and by hand using a template and are trimmed with braid. A pocket is formed to hold the chrome bottom bottom pole.

The roller blinds fixing brackets are powder coated in white and are attached to the conservatory frames using half inch long number 8 screws.www.baileysblinds.com.

Wooden venetian blinds in a square bay window

Baileys blinds are often asked to supply and install wooden venetian blinds in bay windows. This is easy to do but there are things to consider before proceeding.

Baileys blinds normally find that the wooden venetian blinds have to be fitted into plasterboard. We fix other types of blinds into plasterboard using specialist fixings but we have found that due to their weight it is possible to pull wooden venetian blinds out of a plasterboard ceiling when the blind is raised and lowered. Baileys blinds only fix wooden venetian blinds into plasterboard ceilings when the customers agree to lift the blind slats as well as using the lift cords.

Sometimes it is not possible to eliminate gaps between venetian blinds where they meet in the corners. This is not usually a problem because the window mullions and supports cover the gaps. And all venetian blinds need to be dusted.www.baileysblinds.com.

Venetian Blinds and curtains in a bay window

Baileys Blinds have recently installed a venetian blind with 25mm wide slats on a bay window  with three panels covered with curtains. The middle window has full sun during the day and the customers wanted shading from direct sunlight without closing the curtains. We could not fit blinds to the side windows but the side curtains could be closed while the venetian blind provided shading and allows light through the middle window.

The front window is a fixed pane and two side opening side windows make up the three window bay. There are protruding window handles on the two side windows which would interfere with the venetian blinds and prevent them from hanging properly. There was just enough room to allow a venetian blind to hang properly on the larger window because it has no protruding handles.

Venetian blinds with 25mm wide slats are raised and lowered with a cord and are rotated using a stick or wand. Venetian blinds look very neat and modern and allow for very easy and effective light control. Although they need to be dusted regularly Baileys Blinds find that venetian blinds still remain a popular choice for window shading.www.baileysblinds.com.

The roller blinds are moved easily and smoothly up and down by a chain operated sidewinder. All of the brackets and components are manufactured in white. The fabric is mounted on 28mm diametre aluminium tube which will remain straight in the heat of the conservatory unlike cheap fibre tube which will warp.
