Creating a stylish atmosphere outdoors is as important as a comfortable interior. Outdoor awnings can block out the sun, glare or simply add UV protection to your flooring and furniture. External blinds and awnings are the solution to looking good on the outside. Classic Blinds & Shutters has your outdoors covered. Our Awnings and external blinds fit windows of all shapes and sizes.
Letting natural light into your home is key in modern home design. Managing the heat and glare of the sun coming into your home can be achieved with external awnings. Our awnings offer light-filtering qualities to diffuse light, reduce glare and help control heat gain. Installing awnings on your home can make any room more comfortable without sacrificing design.
are sometimes called “automatic” (spring loaded) window awnings, and have been around for as long as the sun has been shining on our homes. Think of the striped canvas awnings on our grandparent’s homes. They are very effective and give excellent heat reduction in an affordable and uncomplicated form that is time tested.
Wire Guided Awnings
Exterior roller blinds give a refined finish to your windows. A wire guide blind enables easy height adjustment, while channel guided blinds work well in higher wind areas and offer good weather protection. Add automation and weather sensors for the ultimate in laid back style. Exterior surround blinds can also extend your seasonal deck use.
Pivot Arm Awnings
Pivot arm awnings allow plenty of air to an open window while offering sun and weather protection. They can withstand moderate amounts of wind and are ideal for large windows and doorways. Classic Blinds & Shutters uses only the best componentry for long life and reliable awnings. Choose from a wide range of fabrics to match your exterior paintwork or deck. Awnings are highly versatile and can be opened or closed as the mood takes you.
Outdoor Sideline Blinds
For temporary privacy that you can open or close, Sideline retractable blinds are perfect for balconies, terraces and garden areas. As well as providing privacy, Sideline retractable blinds can be rolled down to block out the harsh easterly or westerly sun, while leaving your outdoor area light and bright the rest of the day.
Folding Arm Awnings
Extend your outdoor living and entertaining areas with a Folding Arm Awnings. We source most of our options from Australian manufacturer, Helioscreen, whose awnings have been cleverly designed to withstand the toughest of treatments whilst reducing the sun’s penetration and absorbing the heat. We offer a number of options that are fully cossetted for maximum fabric protection and a few open options where the awning can be installed under an eave.
Sourced from Australian manufacturer, Helioscreen, we can either install onto existing pergolas or provide self-supporting sunroofs, known as a Vario Pergola, ideally for creating shaded areas for entertaining or relaxing in the summer. Available in a range of fabric types and colours they add a functional and stylish dimension to outdoor living. Available for flat and sloping glass areas too.
Ziptrak® blinds are innovative and incredibly practical for the Australian lifestyle. The channels provide extra stability for higher wind exposure and offer better insect protection. Using a spring system and specially designed slotted tracks, channel blinds stop in any position and stay in place without locks.
Straight Drop Awnings
Straight drop external awnings create a cosy and welcoming outdoor environment, protect your deck from the weather and retain your view. The slimline appearance of straight drop blinds means they are barely noticeable and sit almost flush with the wall they are attached to. When the awning is put away, the fabric retreats into an enclosed headbox that protects it from rain and harsh sun.
External Venetian Blinds
Often seen on architecturally designed homes near the coast, external Venetian blinds provide an extra level of sun protection compared to a fabric blind. External Venetians are specially constructed to be more resilient and able to withstand windier conditions than internal blinds.
Enjoy your view through either tilted or fully retracted slats. External Venetian blinds are perfect for domestic or commercial use, as the slats let in natural light whilst minimising heat and blinding glare.
