Caribbean Blinds, award winning manufacturer of external shading systems, has just completed its sweetest project to date for Lord Sugar’s 2019 business partner Carina Lepore for her bakery business, Dough Artisan Bakehouse.
Providing the Beckenham High Street bakery with one of their state-of-the-art fabric Puerto Rico Pergola awnings, Caribbean Blinds answered Lepore’s brief to install an all-weather, waterproof cover for the courtyard area at the back of the shop and to remove the piece of tarp that was being used as a temporary cover!
Lepore required flexibility from the product to allow full benefit of the sun whilst being able to fully cover and protect the garden from rain at the push of a button.
Founded in 1987, Caribbean Blinds has been exclusively designing, manufacturing and supplying the very finest external shading products that transform the use, functionality, and enjoyment of all types of spaces.
Full sun, partial shade or complete shelter, the Puerto Rico Pergola awning gives you complete flexibility and freedom over your outdoor space. The slimline pergola framework features a sliding fabric roof that can be adjusted to any position and when fully extended, the integrated guttering built within the lead rail ensures effective water drainage from the fabric into and out of the post uprights.
Stuart Dantzic, managing director of Caribbean Blinds said: “Carina was looking for a stylish, easy to use, permanent and waterproof solution to protect against the weather to enable her to open the bakery’s ‘Secret Garden’ to her customers.
She had seen our installations on social media and messaged us for advice and ideas. We soon struck up a rapport, sent her our ideas and got started. It has been a pleasure to work with her and we are thrilled that one of our products is the reason she can keep an outdoor dining area open all year round.”
Carina Lepore said: “When we chose the Beckenham location, we always planned to improve the garden area for outdoor dining and hospitality as we knew it would bring added value to the business. The pandemic restrictions definitely gave me that push I needed to get this done and made me far more focused about finding the perfect, all year-round outdoor covering.”
