All About Torbay Blinds Ltd
The Gratton-Davey Family has been involved in the Blinds and Awnings industry since 1957. Torbay Blinds is still owned by the family, and over the years the company has grown into one of the industry's leading lights in both innovation and design.
It was the first blindmaker to introduce anodised aluminium extrusion and alloy components,
and became the market leader in this field.
In both the Contract and Domestic market, it has shown the way with computerised bending machines, wet look fabrics, hydem tapes and much more. Torbay Blinds was the first company to design components for the Dutch and Canopy markets in alloy and myzak. This range of components called the Sunkut Systems® soon became the largest range available in the UK.
In later years, with the advance of technology in the glass filled nylon industry, additional tools were commissioned to bring the Sunkut® range of components up to 59, making it also the biggest in Europe. Superbly designed by a Blindmaker for Blindmakers, the components enhance any fixed awnings or folding canopies.
