Wooden Cabin Extension, Bury

Scandinavian relaxation in the North West of England

Sector :Residential

Solution :3 x Eliminate® PVC Roller Blinds

Outcome :Rain proof and heat-sealed entertaining year round


The owner of this property had one clear purpose in mind – create a truly luxurious bar and hot tub wooden cabin for family and friends to enjoy year round. But a traditional door and window solution would separate the cabin from the garden, and also prove uncomfortable in the warm Summer months. So we had an ideal solution.


We have decades of experience installing external roller blinds of all shapes, sizes and materials, so from the survey we knew that we’d be able to provide a great product. The cabin required the blinds to be sealed when down to retain heat and cut out drafts or rain splashes. And of course, they’d need to be remote operated so they could be sent up or down without leaving the hot tub!


We designed and manufactured the blinds at our factory in Bolton, using the same industry-leading Somfy motors that we use in all our motorised products. The material was a high-performance, high-durability PVC fabric, heat welded to avoid stitches. Our expertise with these products meant the installation went smoothly and was completed in a few hours.


The blinds offer exactly the protection from the elements that the owners were looking for – great for keeping out those drafts and rain drops – but offer the flexibility of being completely retracted in Summer. The cabin was now an oasis of relaxation in almost any weather, and when the rain starts the fun doesn’t stop.
