Who are Caribbean Blinds?

Having manufactured premium quality, stylish outdoor shading for 34 years, Caribbean Blinds is a family run business that is consummately passionate, knowledgeable and experienced in all they do.

Originally founded in 1987 by Husband and Wife, Ray and Angie Dantzic, the company remains family-run following a structured buy-out by their sons, Stuart and Brad Dantzic in January 2017.

From humble beginnings the company has grown to become the leading supplier and pre-eminent name in external shading in the UK. Working across residential, contract, commercial and trade, the products can be seen adorning the facades and gardens of discerning homeowners and businesses, with notable celebrities and prestigious commercial establishments amongst their ever-expanding portfolio of clients.

Since taking the reins from their parents, brothers Stuart and Brad have achieved staggering year on year growth and proved that they have inherited the passion that drove the family business from the outset.

The key factors to this growth are their passion for the business combined with their fresh, dynamic approach. This is further fuelled by their in-depth understanding of the business, together with the implementation of strategic investment in both machinery and personnel development to enhance exacting quality and efficiency; all of which has been coupled with a clever digital and in print marketing strategy to increase brand and product awareness.

The result is that, in what is an ageing, fairly stagnant ‘reactive’ industry, Caribbean Blinds stands out as a clear market leader thanks to their forward thinking, innovative and proactive approach.

The product portfolio

The choice and versatility of products available from Caribbean Blinds enables customers to make the most of their home, garden and outdoor living space, not just during the summer months but through all the seasons.

The firm’s outdoor living and solar shading product portfolio includes stylish patio awnings that provide instant shade and shelter, innovative external blinds that offer unbeatable solar heat and light control, and award-winning louvered roofs (Outdoor Living PodTM) that enable outdoor spaces to be used and enjoyed all year round.

The products are manufactured right here in the UK, giving the team at Caribbean Blinds full control of everything they do from ensuring high quality finishes to short lead times. They are able to react quickly where projects are on a tight deadline or incorporate bespoke or unique options for even the most discerning and demanding of clients.

The company’s foundations are built around providing innovative external shading systems that deliver genuine lifestyle-enhancing/energy-saving benefits. This, together with its premium quality, stylish design, exacting service, value for money and above all else, expert knowledge and advice, enables clients to make an informed decision.

The company prides itself on the fact they are the UK’s only company dedicated purely to external shading, making them completely unique in the field – truly specialists!
