Patio blinds are ideal under polycarbonate or glass roofs which often heat up to unbearable temperatures in Melbourne’s warmer months.
A popular option is a pleated concertina awning that extends via tracks fitted to your existing structure. It can be operated via a pull stick, a cord drawn operation or a motor.
We can customize the overhead structure to carry the patio shade tracks if required.
As endorsed suppliers and wholesale manufacturers, we are able to source or manufacture any custom fittings we need for your particular installation.
Two manufacturer systems we recommend are ‘Pleated Pergola Shades’ by Shade Industries or ‘Horizon Shade System’ by Horizon. Each system is available in a wide variety of colours, fabrics and styles.
For example, fabric choices are:
- acrylic canvas – being sunproof and water resistant, it is a popular choice
- shade mesh – reduces glare and does not hold water
- solid PVC – waterproof and heavy duty
However, there are a large number of manufacturers in our industry ensuring there is a wide range of options available for most awning applications.
With our long industry experience, we can design and install the best solution for your location.
