Automatic Verandah Awnings

Our automatic verandah awnings are a traditional blind that is a simple straight drop. They are spring loaded on the top roller, which tensions the fabric.

Roller Shutters

If you are wanting an all in one product that gives you security, privacy and protection from the weather, roller shutters can give you all that.
Whilst making your property look good, roller shutters adds the security. The Rollita Roller shutters are made from strengthened aluminium slats, these are           interlocked, and making sure any invasion is resisted. For extra security a key locking system can also be installed on the shutter.

Offering privacy in your home, you can self adjust the slats to add ventilation and light, or keep the shutters completely closed to create a full blockout, and eliminate a lot of outside noise also.

Weather protection is also a huge asset with roller shutters. The CSIRO find the AR6, AR12 and AR17 shutters suitable for the protection of windows from the radiant heat of bushfires. Keeping the harsh sun off  your windows will drastically reduce  the way your home can heat up in the midst of summer, helping electricity bills go down, and making your home feel more comfortable. In the winter your windows will be protected from any debris, hail, or high winds, whilst keeping the cold off of your window panes helping you keep the heat in.

With three choices available for operating, all shutters have controls installed inside your home, adding convenience and security.

Manual
The winch control is neat, compact, and installed straight into a stud wall. Simply by inserting the handle, you can operate the shutter to lower and raise it to your liking.

Electric
Larger shutters sometimes require a motor to assist with the weight. All motors are hardwired to your home, and add that convenience of operating with a single switch.

Solar Powered
Solar power is now becoming a huge benefit to all homes. Our solar powered shutters come with a remote control for ease of use.
Coming in a range of colours to suit fixtures already on your home, the slats can come in a curved or flat profile.
The curved slat actually reflects and bounces heat and noise away from the window, while the flat slat has thicker insulation to give the same effect. Depending on your tastes, we can custom a roller shutter to your liking.

Café Blinds

Wind and rain can be a real problem in winter. Whether you are wanting to entertain or simply protect your outdoor area from being blown around and wet, clear PVC blinds could be your solution.

We can use clear PVC to make several styles of blinds and awnings, giving you more choice on how you want your area to look. UV treated, and coming in a large variety of tinted colours, ensuring whatever your outdoor needs or décor is, we will have something to suit.

Care and maintenance for PVC blinds

Cleaning
- To ensure no scratching occurs while cleaning, gently hose down any dust or debris on the blind.
- Use a soft cleaning cloth using diluted warm water based detergent : 1 part detergent 20 parts water.
- Do not use chemicals as this could damage the PVC.
- Completely rinse clean with water until there is no residue, and dry with a lint free cloth.

Maintenance
- Incase of strong winds or storms, ensure your blind is up.
- Do not leave rolled up in the direct sun for too long. Heat can be trapped inside the roll, damaging the PVC.
- Try not to roll up blinds while they are wet, as this can blemish the pvc.

Folding Arm Awnings

For outdoor areas with limited space, it can be hard to find coverage that looks great, and that can be put away neatly with no fuss.

The folding arm awning can eliminate all those problems. Its compact design can be installed in the smallest areas for residential and commercial buildings.
Operated by either a manual crank control, or motorisation for ease of use, the folding arm awning retracts in to a slimline headbox which protects the fabric and prolongs the life. A wind, sun, and rain sensor can also be installed, giving piece of mind that your awning will retract back at night, or when the wind and rain is becoming too strong.

Manufactured with an acrylic fabric that comes in a very broad range of colours, your outdoor area and furniture no matter big or small will always be protected from the harsh sun.
