There’s a wealth of options covering the awning’s design, operation, fabrics and finishes, you can customise your awnings to your specific tastes, preferences and according to your exact needs. Why not pop into our local showroom to see for yourself? Our friendly, knowledgeable team will be on hand to go through all the options with you.

Excellent service from the start of the consultation process to the installation. I chose them upon recommendation from my very discerning building contractor who has electrically controlled Aquarius blinds and awnings installed in his own house. Well, I was certainly not disappointed! The Aquarius team are as friendly as they are professional, which made the whole process enjoyable, straightforward and very rewarding. The blinds all look superb and I can’t recommend Aquarius Blinds enough.
