About us



When Joseph H. Lelliott started his family business making blinds in 1881, he could never have dreamt how successful - and how different - it would be 130 years later. In those far-off days when the horseless carriage was a rare sight, materials for his blinds, such as cotton canvas and ironwork (forged by the local blacksmith) had to be transported by trades bike or wheelbarrow. At that time, the business was situated in Chatsworth Road, Worthing, West Sussex and was principally concerned with the manufacture of shop awnings. Then, as now, work of a traditionally high quality was part of Lelliotts’ promise and philosophy which still holds today.

Lelliotts have preserved their original ethos and commitment to quality and service and are known for their very high quality domestic and commercial sunblinds, with a range to suit every home and business. In 1964, the Guildbourne Centre was built and re-development of the area saw Lelliotts move to Broadwater Road until 1995, when Lelliotts moved to Broadwater Business Park. In 2007, Lelliotts relocated its premier showroom to 80 Sompting Road, Worthing.

The company is owned by Angela and her son Alex Dean. Whilst maintaining the traditional values of a family run local company, Lelliotts remains at the forefront of modern manufacturing methods producing both the latest fashionable designs and the classical styles for all types of blinds, awnings, canopies and roller garage doors.

The philosophy of Lelliotts Sunblinds has not changed over the last 130 years. Lelliotts has always focused on providing a very high quality service for our product ranges, at cost effective and realistic prices. We listen to our customers' needs and offer bespoke solution, providing the very best service possible.
