Sun Blinds in Melbourne

The basic pull down sun blind is possibly the most commonly known exterior blind.

Everyone at some stage has lived somewhere that had them. Operated via a pull stick you simply have to locate the hook of the stick into an eyelet at the base rail and pull down.

Customers often enter our showroom and say – “I want one of them but not with the stripe”. 50 years ago when everyone got their sun blinds the colour choice was very limited but today there is over 300 colours with multiple fabric options available.

We have installed basic sun blinds on some of Melbourne’s premier real estate with stunning results.

Modern colour selection and stainless steel components can create a very modern looking product that is quite economical.

At Undercover Blinds, our sun blinds are made to our very high standards with no cheap imported components used. Our fabric is ultrasonically cut and welded and this is as advanced and fabric manufacturing technology gets anywhere in the world.
