IMPORTANT UPDATE: 2022
Please note Kover-it are currently phasing out from the awning industry, and no longer have a public awning showroom. Blog posts and information on awnings are being kept on our website to help educate and share useful insightful information, but note some information may be dated. Since we have over 25 years+ of carrying out thousands of successful awning installations within the Berkshire/South East England Area as we phase out of the awning industry we continue to look after any historical awning customers. Our main focus as a business is about manufacturing and supplying high-quality, long-lasting waterproof covers and gazebo side panel covers, which we can supply to all over the UK and internationally. Our background and experience with awnings, structures and awning textiles subsequently means we have a vast extensive knowledge which is advantageous in the design and manufacture of outdoor covers and side panels.
