We are the preferred supplier of solar protection and home enhancement products in the Southern Cape. Our products are backed by a value driven manufacturing and marketing team. We are passionate people, enjoying everyday at work, providing financial security to all stakeholders and equal opportunities to all.
From humble beginnings way back in 1969, keensKenmar has evolved to the point where today it incorporates a dynamic blind, awning and shutter division, a manufacturing plant for our steel and timber divisions as well as a number of experienced installation teams and professional lifestyle consultants. Our financial and administrative processes are fully integrated and based on the latest technology.
Initially the KEENS KENMAR name was synonymous with a wide range of external and internal window coverings for home and office. These included Venetian, roller, roman and vertical blinds. We still offer the exclusive range of Taylor blinds at competitive prices, backed by excellent after sales service and workmanship.
We are proud of our awnings both for their practical advantages, i.e. protection from rain and sun, as well as their aesthetic appeal. We started manufacturing awnings way back in the 70’s. The fact that we can manufacture right here in the Southern Cape, means we can provide specialized and custom-made awnings for a wide range of applications. We only use Meranti for our wooden awning structures, carefully designed and manufactured in our factory in George. Our aluminum awnings are manufactured and supplied with imported French acrylic, PVC and a choice of aluminum designs.
To support these top of the range products we also allow our clients the choice of motorizing for ultimate convenience. We import the world’s leading brand in tubular motors, Somfy, for your peace of mind at a competitive price. The concealed motors can even be installed retrospectively!
STEEL and SHAYDPORTS
Our steel division has quickly gained a reputation for fine craftsmanship in manufacturing steel balustrades in a variety of designs, using, galvanized steel, exotic timbers and combinations of the two. The same division is the largest manufacturer and supplier of “Shaydports” and waterproof “Raynports” in the Southern Cape. We are proud of the fact that our Shaydports are designed, manufactured and installed according to SABS standards. These cost-effective galvanized structures with shade net canopies in a variety of colours remain popular for domestic and industrial application alike.
Large installations such as PetroSA, George Airport and SANDF, but to mention a few, have been completed. We have the infrastructure to provide our clients with efficient and professional after sales service and advice.
With the international design trend moving to classic contemporary about eight years ago, it was only natural that keensKenmar would begin supplying and installing adjustable-louver Shutters, which can be hinged for windows or slide/fold on a track system to create a stunning effect for light control in the place of curtains. Shutters are available in genuine wood (Obeche) and “Thermowood”, a faux-wood product ideal for indoors and outdoors. Our latest range of shutters includes the exclusive range of Taylor’s Shutterguard. This innovative range of shutters has all the qualities of shutters with the advantage of providing a barrier against crime
Gerhard Kruger, CEO of the company, explains their dictum: “We do not focus on price - anyone can sell cheap products. Rather, from the first contact we build a foundation for a lasting relationship and endeavour to exhibit levels of service that leave our clients with pleasant memories.”
