Schools Out for Summer – Time to Re-cover your Gazova

Garden Covers – Made-to-Measure

Summer is well and truly with us at last and an ideal time to sit out in the garden and enjoy a glass of chilled Pimm’s with a few slices of cucumber and a sprig of mint. Whatever your poison, it’s so much more pleasurable sitting comfortably beneath some shelter, which provides cool shade and prevents you wilting in the heat. So far, this season, we’ve had plenty of requests for the sort of canvas solutions we’re used to providing…

Bespoke Sun-blinds for Provence Rooftop Terrace

At this time of year, the sun comes out, which is always very welcome. However, in some cases and particularly in the South of France, it can get a little too hot at times and the direct sunlight uncomfortable. We’ve manufactured these custom-made sun-blinds for a customer who has a house there and is delighted with the result. ‘They have done the job splendidly.’ This is just one example of the many ways we can create unique canvas products, made…

Golf Buggy Enclosure Rezipped!

As you know, we do love a challenge and are often presented with new and intriguing tests of our know-how. We were recently approached by a keen golfer (Chris); so keen in fact that he likes to get out and play in all weathers and even has a special cover for his golf buggy, which he refers to as a golf enclosure. The cover he had was rather premium and so when the zip fastener no longer worked, he understandably…

This project has done exactly that and given its delighted owners and occupants an extremely wide view of their garden. Specialised Canvas Services are as pleased as our client with the way this has turned out and proves once again that given a challenge, we’ll rise to it. This particular…
