We are all in this together


We appear to be living through an unprecedented event in human history. With the ever-changing landscape of COVID-19 and the uncertainty that it is causing, we wanted to let you know what we are doing as a business and as a family.

Firstly, we are still open… as much as we can be. These are unusual times, but we feel that it is important to keep calm and carry on as much as possible.

Our showroom and trade counter are open. To adhere to current guidance and maintain social distancing, any showroom visits or collections are limited to an appointment-only service, so please contact us prior to any visits.

You are welcome to arrange a virtual appointment with a member of our team in our showroom. We can arrange a video conference where we can go over your requirements and show you all the products and options we have available.

We are undertaking site surveys where it is safe to do so, or alternatively we can arrange a virtual appointment and survey your property remotely. This means we can still provide accurate quotations and process orders.

Our service and repair engineers continue to operate and we are still providing our full garage door repair service. Obviously, the priority at this moment in time is with key workers, so please do let us know if you fall into this category.

Our online garage door spares website and mail order service are operational and we are shipping orders.

We are able to undertake installation work where it is safe to do so and we can adhere to the current guidance.

At this time it’s important that we all stay safe, look out for each other, be kind and generous.

In the meantime, if you have any queries, please get in touch…

And don’t forget to wash your hands.


Awnings Guide

How to pick the right product and then maintain it

Purchasing and maintenance process

Here at ABi, we believe in the quality of the patio awnings and pergola systems that we supply and install. Throughout the whole purchasing and maintenance process we therefore strive to make it as easy as possible for our valued Yorkshire customers.

When our certified engineers come out to fit your product, they will give you a specific guide for it. Following this helps you to extend its life and preserve its aesthetics to ensure that it delivers the very best return on investment.

Do not worry if you misplace your guide as we can always send you an electronic copy of the PDF or even pop a new printed version in the post.

Picking the right product for you

Still not sure which product to go for? This breakdown of our patio awnings and pergola systems should hopefully clear things up:

Patio awnings

Create pleasantly-shaded areas to relax in.

House awnings generate charming spaces that are both shaded and private. Our products are designed with a combination of materials to effectively meet your individual requirements.

Pergola systems

Make extra room outdoors.

Producing cool solutions for hot problems like sun exposure and excess heat when enjoying the outdoors, pergola systems expand living space. With two different designs available, there is a solution for every house too.

Tips on choosing your fabric

If you buy a patio awning or pergola system then you obviously want to enjoy it for a long time. As such, it makes sense to research the properties and qualities of fabrics before purchasing.

What makes a good fabric? How do the colours retain their brightness? Do you need to consider certain matters when cleaning it? Fortunately, answers to these and other questions can be found in a helpful weinor brochure by clicking here.
