Outdoor Window Awnings Offer Effective Weather Protection

One of the key benefits of awnings is their excellent performance against nature’s elements, which is a highly valued attribute for any outdoor investment in Australia. Outdoor window awnings screen the sun’s glare and heat more effectively than interior blinds. The tough, durable fabrics and fixtures on our external window awnings retain their sleek appearance and protective qualities season after season, allowing you to extend the longevity of your outdoor furniture and flooring while creating an attractive outdoor area.

We have a huge range of canvas fabrics available that provide a 100% UV blockout. Or retain your views by selecting one of our many screen mesh fabrics which allow light to filter into your home.

Our window awnings come in a range of prints, including classic stripe and block colours to give your home a fresh and contemporary look. No matter how your Melbourne home is styled, we can help you find the perfect products to suit your needs.

Whether you’re after a motorised automatic awning or window awnings with manual winding cranks, wire guides, ropes and poles, you’ll find all that you need here at Alfresco Blinds Co.

Drop Arm Awnings

Palladio – Semi Cassette Drop-arm awnings are a great way of providing shade for your home or business. These installations are ideal over doorways, terraces, balconies and shop fronts.

Drop arm awnings can be motorised or manually operated so large areas can be covered easily. Reduce room temperatures, prevent wooden flooring from warping and carpets from fading, protect soft-furnishings or commercial stock, fixtures and fittings from the damaging effect of the harsh sun with drop arm window awnings.

Ideal for any window, motorised installations are particularly suitable for windows on upper floors. Manual operation suits ground and lower levels with easy access. Drop-arm outdoor window awnings can act as a canopy and function as an excellent alternative to folding arm awnings. Choose canvas or acrylic fabric to create a near-total blockout. Otherwise, opt for a mesh fabric to optimise protection from the sun while keeping your views.

Benefits and Features of Drop-Arm Awnings

  • Provides shade and reduces the internal room temperature
  • UV ray blockage of up to 95%
  • Reduction of heat and glare
  • Energy consumption lowered by up to 30%
  • Environmentally-friendly way to cool your home or business
  • Protects interior from sun damage
  • Adds value to your home or commercial property
  • Ideal for sites where a folding arm is unsuitable
  • Custom made to span a range of widths and drops

Window Shades & Canvas Awnings in Melbourne

Add a touch of elegance to your business or residence with window shades and canvas awnings.

Window shades are a secondary cover that overhangs the window outside, typically made with fabric such as canvas, cotton or polyester. Window awnings Melbourne-wide are an excellent choice for residents as they are not only visually appealing but can also provide protection from the harsh Australian weather.

There are a number of reasons to invest in window shades and canvas awnings. Alfresco Blinds Co provides an extensive range of awning styles to complement your home, restaurant or business with professional installation from experts.


Fixed Guide Awnings & Blinds

Palladio – Semi Cassette If you need a shade solution for an upstairs window, a spring-loaded cord-operated blind is an excellent choice. With the choice of stainless steel or galvanised rods and cable guides. Our window awnings come standard with Colorbond headbox hooding in a variety of material types.

Full Motorisation and Custom Designs

Fixed guide awnings and blinds are versatile and can be operated from the outside with pulleys and cords or motorised for your convenience. For installations within arms reach (e.g. ground floor windows) our fixed guide awnings can be operated using a crank handle and gearbox.

Motorisation allows you to control your awnings individually or simultaneously, as well as supporting other useful functions such as timers and climate sensors. Motorised functionality is as effortless as the touch of a button. At Alfresco, we opt for well-known motor and component brands such as Somfy or Becker motors. Wind and sun sensors provide constant protection, as the motorised awning will automatically extend when it detects sun and retracts in high winds to avoid damage. Wired and wireless options are available.

Take a look at our selection of eShade straight drop, fixed guide or wire guide awnings. Our range of outdoor blinds and awnings is endless.

Sunblinds are suitable for windows that open outwards thanks to the spring arms that are available in 150mm, 300mm and 450mm long. Special aluminium arms are also available with powdercoated rail guides.
