PR071 Milwood Group aims to help installers extend their reach with new Heston awning range

Outdoor living specialists and G18 Award finalists, the Milwood Group have kicked off the New Year by officially launching the Heston range, their brand-new collection of premium awnings.

Combining three distinct awning systems, the new Heston range is designed to provide installers with a premium solution to suit any outdoor space. While the Heston Light boasts a sharp, modern design, the Heston Flat features a smooth, more rounded finish. The star of the range, however, is the Heston Pro which offers a discrete, yet high-performance system.

Each awning offers massive amounts of customisation with 117 different fabric colours and a choice of four standard colours and 16 colour combinations for the frame. Operated by an electric motor, the three Heston systems can be opened and closed with the touch of a button. What’s more, the systems are almost completely hidden when retracted fully.

“We are absolutely thrilled to finally reveal our new Heston collection – an exciting new addition to our industry-leading outdoor living range,” comments Mark Wood, Managing Director of the Milwood Group. “Whilst 2019 promises to be another tough and challenging year for the industry, there will still be many valuable opportunities available, especially in the buoyant outdoor living market.

“There are no excuses to really seize this opportunity and take advantage of this demand for awnings, as well as aluminium verandas, canopies and carports. The Heston range is designed with versatility, customisation and performance in mind, to ensure we deliver a range which meets the demands of the market and adds value to our customers offerings. The initial signs have been really positive, and we only see that continuing throughout the year.”

Whilst the Heston Light delivers a more compact solution with projections up to 3.6 metres and a span of six metres, the Heston Flat and Pro systems offer a slightly larger solution with 12-metre spans. The range-topping Pro can even achieve a reach of 4.3 metres out from the property.

To tailor for every budget and application, each system can be upgraded to include LED lighting on the cassette and arms. Customers can even choose to have speakers installed in the awning, which they can control using the dedicated companion app.

The new Heston range joins a whole host of awning solutions as part of Milwood’s offering, and sits alongside their full range of aluminium verandas, canopies, pergolas and glass rooms. Trusted by over 150 trade partners nationwide, the Milwood range is manufactured in the UK using the Kent-firm’s bespoke extrusions. Each system is available with fast turnarounds thanks to their centrally located distribution centre in Leicestershire.

The centre is also home to Milwood’s bespoke training academy, where customers and new trade partners can explore the Heston range and take advantage of thorough product and installation training.
