Providing expertise to solve complex shading problems for our clients in healthcare, business, education and unique residential properties.


Our mission

To provide attractive, high quality and long-lasting shading solutions, that enable our clients to create efficient, comfortable and productive spaces, now and in the future.

Our story

We’ve been helping our customers find the right blind solution for over forty years. From humble beginnings in 1979, manufacturing blinds for local customers, we’ve established a reputation for high quality, exceptional customer service and innovation throughout the UK.

In 2002, we achieved ISO 9001 quality assurance accreditation and have held it ever since. Kensington Systems was the first company to develop innovations such as side tracker channels and detachable crank handles.

Over 40 years on, our focus on quality products and service has not changed. Now known as Rolshade® by Kensington Systems, the technical expertise we've built up enables us to handle the most complex projects with confidence. Our customers trust us to deliver great work, time after time.

'No hesitation in recommending'

From our initial enquiry to our finished installation Kensington Systems and Brian were excellent in their service. They were pleasant to deal with, had a no-pressure approach but were clear and detailed with their information provided. The installation was completed in a timely manner and the fitter checked everything as it was installed. I would have no hesitation in recommending the services provided by Kensington Systems.

'Wow factor'

We're very happy with our external blinds from Kensington.

I wasn't really familiar with external blinds prior to engaging Kensington but Brian was extremely helpful explaining how the blinds work and what to expect from the installation. 

Once installed they looked exactly as he said they would and had a wow fact that is hard to put in words. Would highly recommend!

'Kensington Systems have delivered beyond expectations throughout our dealings with them. From the site visit at short notice, through the extensive samples and options provided, through to the speedy quote. The installation was carried out in a very speedy  and tidy manner and we are all happy with the look and quality of the end result.

'The finished blinds look amazing'

'We are very happy with our new blinds from Kensington Systems. From start to finish they were professional and, importantly, competitive with their quote. The  finished outdoor blinds look amazing and work perfectly in our outdoor covered kitchen.'

Who we help


Increase comfort and efficiency at your premises with our commercial blinds. Installing blinds helps to reduce glare, provide privacy and increase the productivity of your staff. We also work with construction and fitout contractors to help them complete their projects to a high standard.

Premium Residential

Our high-quality, premium external roller blinds block heat from entering your home while allowing light through. Our blinds offer a long-lasting, sustainable alternative to air conditioning, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of large windows and abundant natural light, but with a cool, comfortable interior.


Increase comfort for patients and allow staff to work more efficiently with our range of blinds for healthcare settings. Designed to be easy to operate and clean and with an anti-ligature range suitable for mental health environments, our blinds are high-quality, low-maintenance and long-lasting. 

Education & Public Sector

Our robust blinds increase comfort while maintaining a high standard of health and safety, using child safety mechanisms such as chain clips and detachable crank handles. We are accustomed to working with the unique needs and busy schedules of schools to keep disruption to a minimum, and all our installers are fully DBS-accredited.
