The Shaker Kitchen Shopfront in Wandsworth Has New Shop Awnings

shop awnings of Shaker Kitchen

These 2 modern shop awnings really enhance the The Shaker Kitchen shopfront in Wandsworth Bridge Road. Radiant Blinds supplied two manually operated folding arm awnings, the framework was finished in black and the covers in black acrylic material. The client wanted the covers and valances signwritten so these were hand painted with the name of the company on the main covers and their website/phone number on the valances.

Installing The Motorised Integral Blinds in a Bifold or Sliding Door

Having fully motorised integral blinds in a moving or window or door frame is something a lot of our clients have avoided in the past. The nice thought of having Radiant Blinds units in a blinds for bifold doors without a magnet or battery pack permanently sitting on the glass surface is often negated by the thought of looping cables from door-to-door and leaving exposed wiring between the profiles when the doors are open. Radiant Blinds can offer a nice, tidy, relatively simple solution to this problem and now have a growing list of clients who have successfully hard-wired the units in to bifold doors.

Radiant Blinds can supply wireless contacts which are pretty simple to wire up and connect as well as being subtle and good looking by design; sitting in the profiles between the doors to allow power to flow through the door when they’re closed. The doors can then open and fold up freely without any worries over exposed cabling getting damaged or looking messy.

The contacts are so neat to look at that one will hardly notice they are there as well as having spring-mounted prongs to ensure contact is maintained even allowing for a small amount of variance over time as the doors are open and closed. Radiant Blinds can provide dimensions and wiring diagrams at the point of order making them simple for their technician to install and allowing the necessary wiring preparations can be made around the door frame prior to the door being installed.

Polished and Treasured 40 Year Old Triumph Stag

Last year’s Camberley Car Show, organised by Collectively Camberley, was a smashing hit, and demonstrated how many treasured cars there are in and around Surrey Heath.

At a recent Probus lunch I was talking to one of the members about cars who owned a marvelous 40 year old Triumph Stag. I could not resist the temptation of taking a closer look at the car. Running my fingers over the excellent paint finish on the body proved to me that this was a car that was regularly polished. A Triumph Stag with wire wheels was unusual but, Reg, the owner, told me that they were a factory fitted option.

Here are a couple of images for the car enthusiasts among you to linger over, one showing the big 3.0 litre V8 engine and its two Zenith-Stromberg carburettors.
