Add value to your home without needing to renovate!
By increasing the versatility of your existing living spaces - whether they fall outdoors or in - outdoor blinds add value to your home; eliminating the need to change your floorspace. Outdoor blinds can enclose a patio or balcony from the harsh elements, making the space usable year-round. Protecting an indoor living space from the elements, while allowing gentle airflow, they can improve comfort in the space you already have.

Outdoor Blind Styles
Choosing the right blind design adds function and character to your home.
Straight drop, cable guide, deep channel, pivot arm, or side retention system, the style of blind you choose will enhance the look and function of your living space. Whether you choose to protect an outdoor area, or open up a living area, our range of styles will add value to your home.
Simple and functional - a straight drop blind uses no guide systems and sits flush against the window or door area. Hold down straps and locking bolts can be added to secure the awning at various points, retaining strength with maximum flexibility across large widths. While its flat design makes a straight drop blind ideal for protection against harsh UV rays and high winds, it still allows for good gentle air flow.
Cable Guide Awning
A contemporary straight drop design, the cable guide awning provides protection against the elements in a sleek design that hides all mechanical elements. Ideal in coastal environments, the cables used in this design are marine-grade stainless steel, totally resistant against rust and corrosion. A cable tension system combined with bottom rail-locking systems ensures this blind moves smoothly and can be secured with minimal movement or gaps at the bottom and sides.
Deep Channel Blinds
Ideal for areas exposed to harsh elements such as wind and strong light, a deep-channel system is secured with channels running the full length of the blind on either side. This eliminates light gaps and blind movement in windy conditions. For a high quality finish, the channel systems are hidden behind protective covers. This design is also suitable for blinds of varying shapes and sizes.
Pivot Arm Awning
A highly functional design, the pivot arm awning extends outwards, creating an arc over the window. This allows for airflow while protecting your living space from harsh light and UV rays. Because the awning projects outwards, it creates a sense of extra space, making it suitable for rooms of all shapes and sizes. The heavy duty design also lends itself to larger windows.
Side Retention System
Exceptionally strong and versatile, the side retention blind system can withstand winds of up to 108 km/hour. Designed to extend down flush against the window pane or door cavity, this blind also protects against harsh UV rays and insects. It’s strength and contemporary design make it ideal for enclosing balconies, creating privacy and controlling light and heat all year round.
