A gear operated blind with channel guide has been successfully used up to 6m in width with certain fabrics. This type of blind has been used to enclose carports, verandahs and patios and is locked down with stainless steel pins and then tensioned via the gearbox. Motorised channel guide blinds have been used to divide rooms, e.g. home theatres or rumpus rooms.

Stainless steel wire guides can also be added where the blind is lowered from top to bottom, being guided by stainless wires and fittings running vertically on either side of the blind. A headbox is optional.

Motorised drop blinds are operated by remote control and can have a sun and wind sensor attached so they are completely automated. When the sun is shining on the area the blinds will roll down, and if there is enough wind (sensor is adjustable) the blinds will retract up fully.

This type of awning is also suitable when the walkway space beside a house or unit is narrow, eliminating the need for projecting arms. All types of fabric including, Draylon, canvas, vinyl, mesh or PVC can be used.

Privacy Screens - Currumbin, QLD
 
 
 
Privacy Screens
These days a lot of properties are built closely along boundary lines, therefore privacy between the two properties is very minimal. We can custom manufacture privacy screens to suit, with all different shapes, sizes and applications, depending on your needs.

These can be made out of total block out, or most commonly the 2×2 weave mesh which is 95% block out and keeps the majority of the weather out. The mesh is ideal for hot, enclosed areas with this particular fabric allowing air flow, along with the maximum block out available in any mesh products. The benefit of mesh with such a high block out factor is that the outward-looking view is maintained while the inward visibility is very minimal.

Folding Arm Awning - Currumbin, QLD
 
 
 
Folding Arm Awning
Italian folding arm awnings are designed for sun protection and to extend your outdoor living area. This awning is mounted directly onto your wall or under the eave; special brackets have been designed to accommodate this mounting. A weather box is an optional extra.

Full cassette folding arm awnings allow the fabric to be fully protected when rolled in. These awnings can be extended or retracted by either a manual crank drive or motorised. Either way, the awning can be fully extended or only partially extended.

Variable pitch arms are an optional extra which allows greater adjustment in both a vertical and horizontal pitch. Care must be taken when winding the variable pitch arms.

Motion sensors can be hidden away in the front bar of your motorised awning. Once the wind blows and the awning starts to move around, the sensor is activated and the awning will automatically close. Wind sensors can be fitted near your motorised awning and will activate when they get continuous seconds of wind at the speed specified by the sensor. The awning will then automatically close.

The preferred fabric is Draylon, but canvas, vinyl or mesh can be also used. (Please ask for advice).
