What are window awnings?

Awnings are outdoor window coverings that help to keep the heat and light from entering your home or outdoor space.

What are awnings are used for?

Awnings can be selected for a range of reasons such as increased privacy, reduced transfer of heat into your home, enclosing outdoor areas to provide increased living space and the ability to control the amount of light filtering into your home.

What's the difference between an awning and a canopy?.

A canopy or dutch hood is fixed in position above windows and doors. Unlike awnings they are generally not opened and closed, rather remain in place once installed

What are the best outdoor blinds?

There’s not just one. Each outdoor blind has unique features and benefits and will suit particular needs, functionality requirements and styles of home.

How much are outdoor awnings?

Our awnings are custom made to order so the cost is dependant on the size of the window you are covering, the materials of construction and the style of awning that you choose. Adding motorisation is also possible for many of our awnings Melbourne at a very reasonable cost.

Should I motorise my awnings?

Whilst it could be considered extravagant, motorising outdoor blinds that are covering multi-storey windows, that are not easily accessible from the outside, can actually be a clever solution.
