Awning Repair Details:

SBI Ltd (Sun Blinds Installations) were contacted by our clients as they have a Sorrento awning originally supplied and installed by Thomas Sanderson.

We were asked to carry out repairs as the awning arm had sheared off from the front rail of the awning and was sticking out.

As Thomas Sanderson supplied and installed only the best luxury German awnings it was far more economical to repair the awning than replace it with a similar new awning.

We replaced the old parts with new:

  • A new pair of commercial qulity arms.
  • An acrylic awning cover and valance.
  • Tubular SOMFY motor, with a 5-year warranty.
  • Remote controls to operate the motor.
  • Added a vibration wind safety sensor.


  • Serviced the awning and cleaned the framework.
  • Tested the awning inward and outward limits were correct and adjusted them.
  • Leveled the awning and adjust the pitch.
  • Cleaned the awning outer framework and rain gutter.
  • Installation brackets refitted tested and tightened coach bolts.
  • Inspections of internal retaining bolts tested and tightened.
  • Lubricated relevant moving parts and arm pivot joints/elbows.

SBI Ltd recommends that domestic awnings should be serviced/cleaned every 2 years and commercial awnings once a year.

Additional work supplied and installed an infrared remote control heater.
