Pub Awnings: Botchergate, Carlisle

About This Project

Pub Awnings: Botchergate, Carlisle, installed by SBI Ltd

Border Rambler Pub purchased two commercial strength pub awnings with wind sensors for their pub in Botchergate, Carlise.

As the old pub awnings were old and very tired they needed replacing. Deciding that the pub awnings would need to be strong enough to cope with windy conditions. He decided that an important feature of the new awnings was adding wind sensors. Wind sensors detect vibration of the front extended part of the awning. When wind speeds get too high the awnings automatically retract to help protect them from wind damage.

SBI specified it’s own brand of an awning to provide shade from the sun and shelter from the rain. The awnings have powerful spring-loaded arms that push the cover out and keep it taut.

By pressing a button on the remote control they can open or close the awnings with ease.

Should wind speeds increase to a point where the SBI UK manufactured awnings could be damaged. Automatic wind sensors that detect vibrations in the awnings will help protect them by retracting them.
