External window blinds, Surf Coast and Geelong

Automatic awning, fixed-guide sunblind and wire-guide awning

Surf Coast Shutters and Shade’s pull-down sunblinds and awnings come in a range of designs, styles and operational abilities to suit your needs, with a great range of fabrics and colours available. All blinds are manufactured to measure, custom to your requirements.

Sunblinds and awnings provide protection, not only cooling your home in the summer, but also protecting your curtains, furniture, carpets and timber floors from the harmful UV rays of the sun. Have you considered a shade mesh rather than a canvas? While not providing 100% block-out, the mesh will provide up to a 95% shade factor while still allowing you to enjoy privacy and a view!
