Great price, great product and a very personal service..the only company out of a lot I contacted that took the time to come to site and measure up, discuss etc before submitting a quotation.

Kensington Systems got its start in 1979 when our founder Marcus Huntley left his job as a welding engineer to start his own business. He began to manufacture blinds out of a workshop in his back garden in Brislington, Bristol.
Marcus worked part-time as a window cleaner to begin with while steadily growing his blind manufacture and fitting business. The business expanded further when his sons joined during the 1990s and moved to new premises.
Kensington Systems continued to grow into the new millennium, developing further innovations in the market including side tracker channels for roller blinds and magnetic detachable crank handles to prevent vandalism. In 2002 the company achieved ISO 9001 quality management accreditation and has maintained it ever since.
In 2012, the company began to diversify into external products, acquiring Vertex Barrier Systems, a company specialising in security shutters and external furniture. In 2014, we introduced the Spaceshade modular canopy system, the first on the market in the UK to have a non-fragile roof certification and its gutters and downpipes fully integrated within the frame.
In the years since Kensington Systems have become well known for innovation and service as demand for our canopies and outdoor shelters has soared. We are now innovating for the future, developing new products including canopies with inbuilt solar panels to generate renewable energy.
Is to make it easy for our customers – this means helping you find the solution that’s right for you, making the installation process hassle-free and creating products that are easy to live with, both long-lasting and with minimal maintenance.
