Outdoor Blinds & Awnings

Outdoor blinds are a fantastic way to ensure you enjoy entertaining in your outdoor areas - all year round.

Whatever your pergola or patio decor budget, we can help you. Choose from a range of quality materials and fabrics with high UV protection, that offer you blockout, and durability in the humidity, sun, and downpours so common in the north tropics. Even the connectors and chains have been specifically chosen for durability (and looks are a bonus!).

Best of all, your indoor blinds are custom designed and manufactured in our workshop so they fit your needs - and your outdoor windows perfectly. All blinds are installed according to the latest Australian safety regulations. 

Check out the outdoor blind photos on this page for samples of fabric awnings, heavy duty channel awnings, drop arm awnings, aluminium hood awnings, folding arm awnings, aluminium louvre awnings, and external sunscreens.

We could not be happier and more impressed! A 3-week turnaround from first point of contact to installation, with consistent communication and updates throughout the process. Absolutely incredible, especially as it's 5 weeks out from Christmas and holidays! The best value for money and service you will find in Cairns! If you need blinds, do not go anywhere else! - Ellie Murray
