Victorian Awnings

Known as 'Traditional' 'Drop arm' or 'Butchers' This awning uses a boxed 'sprung loaded' fabric roller, mounted in the facia or fa├žade of the building. The fabric is attached normally to a timber front plate, which is connected to the wall with long steel or cast iron pivot arms. When hooked out the fabric is pulled out tensioning the spring, keeping the fabric tight against the wall arms. When rolled away the spring rolls up the fabric back into the box. Used for centuries this type of awning is still very popular with Pubs, Restaurants and Listed establishments.
