Our environmental and fairtrade policy

As an environmentally aware company, we are constantly making changes to ensure we are doing all we can to help fight climate change and improve global work place equality.

CE marked

All our products are CE marked and sourced only from Europe. It shows that the manufacturer has checked their products meet EU safety, health or environmental requirements.

We don’t sell or install products from the Far East

We don’t import anything from the Far East as this involves container shipping and often poor workplace conditions for factory workers.

Recycling

All products are shipped to us in 98% recyclable materials which we sort ourselves and then recycle as a business.

Quality lasts

We only stock reputable brands with products that will last for years to come.  We also encourage our awning customers to buy full cassette awnings.  Open awnings have a much shorter life span as the awning is not protected when retracted.

weinor

weinor – who supply awnings and awning pergolas have their very own environmental policy, which you can find here.

The powder coating process carried out at weinor is chrome-free and meets the highest standards for water treatment. The modern basics blue® fabric collection uses around 60% less energy in production.  Where possible weinor uses aluminium with a high recycled proportion for its awning and patio roof profiles.  For weinor fabric pergolas click here for weinor awnings, click here
