Metal door canopy over French doors on timber clad house

Autumn is officially here and, so it seems, is another lockdown looming. These past few months here at Garden Requisites have been our busiest ever…more time at home means more time for home improvements. Houzz reported a 58% increase in project activity in September alone! We are honoured and grateful that despite the current climate, you are still investing in our sustainable range of British handmade zinc galvanized products that will last a lifetime. The photo in this month’s blog shows the tasteful design of our Scoop Canopy over a beautiful front door in Germany. The Scoop Canopy over this doorway will offer wet weather protection as well as an elegant simplicity that suits any style of house, doorway, or extension.

Garden and home renovation

Despite shortages of loo-roll, flour and marmite, our wonderful customers are still ordering our traditional canopies, hand-woven fireguards, and galvanized iron porches. Our ironwork and wirework products – made of steel which is then hot-dip zinc galvanized to make it durable in all weathers – are made by us here in the UK. Our production team have been working extra days and weekends to meet the surge in demand for our products as we are the only company in the world that hand-weaves mesh in the traditional fashion.

Fireguards for autumn

This autumn, our most popular products have been grey painted canopies and black painted fireguards (we took one fireguard order back in July can you believe!). Our fireguards have been ordered for several reasons…we had one order for a traditional black painted fireguard to provide a barrier around the stove because our customer had two new Siamese kittens. Our diamond pattern woven mesh fireguards can be designed to fit around any stove or fireplace. It is our experienced and award-winning British designers and engineers that make Garden Requisites the unique and high-quality. There is nothing the designers at Garden Requisites cannot work around…apart from getting you some loo roll!
