Leisure & Hospitality

Transform your customer experience and increase turnover with a James Robertshaw solution.

Awnings, Retractable Roofs and Barriers for the Leisure and Hospitality Industry

We’ve been making traditional Victorian awnings for businesses since, well, the Victorian age. But as the requirements of modern entertainment space have changed, so our products have evolved into truly space-transforming solutions. We can’t change the weather, but we can give you the control to beat it.

We offer a range of bespoke shading, weather protecting, and exterior design products that are made-to-measure to fit any space and purpose. Our experienced sales team and surveyors will guide you through the process of matching solutions to your goals and needs, giving you a stress-free journey to maximising your outdoor space potential.

We build all of products at our manufacturing facility in Bolton, so you know that you’re in expert hands from choosing the best product to final installation and beyond. We even have a specialist architect available to help with large projects where planning is required.

Our Leisure & Hospitality offering covers a wide range of individual products and solutions combined to create the perfect environment. It is best understood as three main categories:

Commercial Awning and Umbrella Systems

We manufacture every type of awning from traditional Victorian Box to motorised full cassette, available in sizes up to 6,000mm x 4,000mm – that’s a staggering 24m2 of shaded area for a single awning!

There are over 200 fabrics to choose from and we offer a complete printing service for your branding. Our giant umbrellas can be up to 6,000mm width and are completely weather proof. All of our awnings and umbrellas can be complemented with quartz heaters and LED lighting to create that ideal cosy atmosphere.



Retractable Roof Systems

Retractable roofs are the pinnacle of outdoor entertainment control, and ours will not disappoint. With the touch of a button, you can transform a totally weather-proof room complete with heating and lighting into an open air oasis perfect for those sunny days. Or the other way round if the rain starts to fall!

Every retractable roof is unique, designed and built to the exact size and needs of your business. They can include retractable glazing, French doors, UPVC wall blinds, flooring – or any combination you may want – and can be fitted into even the most modest of courtyards.

Our clients have found the return on investment of our retractable roofs deliver is consistently excellent, not to mention the competitive advantage these crowd-pleasing solutions offer. And with flexible financing options available, installing a game-changing roof system in your venue may be more affordable than you think.


Planters, Cafe Barriers and Retractable Screens

To add the finishing touches to your outdoor area, make your brand more visible and your open air space stand out from the rest of the street, or simply offer some privacy and protection to your customers, our range of free-standing outdoor dividers will deliver.

From a classic fabric cafe barrier to a motorised retractable glass screen integrated into an elegant planter, we make fantastic products to suit all budgets. On their own, they offer a beautifully designed solution to advertise and enclose your outdoor area. When combined with our awnings or roof systems, the opportunities are endless.



Our range of products for the Leisure & Hospitality sector have been improved and developed through decades of experience working with our loyal customers. We pride ourselves not only on the quality of our systems and our customer service, but also on the genuine financial benefits our products offer. Brand visibility, customer experience, and flexible attractive environments all contribute to the increased turnover our solutions can deliver. We’d love to meet you and find out how we can transform your space.

James Robertshaw. We don’t just find the solution, we create it.

“The W-Series has definitely exceeded our expectations. It’s everything you’d want from a conservatory and living extension, but on sunny days it’s like having an al fresco dining room! It’s been a real wow factor for all our friends and visitors.”

Throughout the design and installation process, James Robertshaw and their partners have been fantastic to work with. We get lots of comments from visitors about how good the blinds look and when they’re rolled away they are so discreet you wouldn’t even know they are there. Which is great for match days!

Steve Newton, Tours and Operations Manager

“The P-Series umbrellas have been amazing for us. We’ve increased turnover 300% since they were installed!”
