Outdoor awnings to suit any style and budget
Our range of exterior awning designs are made with a variety of stylish, durable canvas, acrylic and sun-resistant fabrics. Our fabric awnings deliver exceptional strength and durability all year round, making them the perfect choice for coastal, rural and suburban settings. Plus, we provide dedicated after-sales care for all our installations to ensure the perfect fit for your window awnings.
Automatic awnings are easy to adjust and come with stylish hoods in a range of Colorbond colours. Automatic awnings can also be stopped at any height, letting you choose the exact amount of light to let into your home. With their modern look, durable mesh fabric and straight valance, we recommend automatic awnings for windows with differing arm lengths.
Straight-drop awnings are made with a sophisticated see-through mesh that protects your outdoor area from harsh sunlight and winds — without compromising your view. Straight-drop awnings can be operated on a convenient motorised system or via crank or spring, depending on your preference and budget. They’re also easy to protect, as they can be rolled into the provided headbox or roller during storms, wet weather and extreme winds.
We recommend our versatile, easy-to-use straight-drop awnings for verandahs, patios, pergolas and decks.
Outdoor entertaining can be a real hassle in unprotected outdoor spaces.
Add a sleek, sophisticated look to your deck or alfresco areas with a set of zip-screen awnings. These chic, modern awnings are designed to remove any space between the edges of your awning and the panels to provide superior weather protection.
This creates a seamless look that reduces the amount of sunlight leaking through the sides of your awning. It also provides protection from insects, strong winds and harmful UV rays.
These award-winning German awnings are designed with advanced aluminium textile weaving and fabrication, self-cleaning fabrics and seamless full-cassette cases. Experience top-of-the-line UV protection, over 250 fabric patterns and hassle-free self-cleaning fabrics based on your model of choice.
As the region’s exclusive provider of Markilux awnings, we’ll ensure your new window coverings are tailor-made to suit your outdoor areas.

FAQs about outdoor awnings
External window awnings are easy to clean and require very little maintenance. Take a look at our cleaning guide for outdoor awnings.
- Lightly dust your awnings. We recommend dusting your awnings with a soft, clean brush or cloth every now and then to remove any dust or dirt from their surfaces. For the best results, dust your awnings when they’re dry.
- Wipe away debris and sediment. Stop sand, leaves and other debris from building up on the surface of your awning by giving them a wipe every now and then. We also recommend wiping your awnings after intense weather like strong winds, as your awnings can get dirty in these conditions.
- Clean stains as soon as possible. It’s important to remove stains from the surface of your awnings as soon as you spot them, as spills, oils and other liquid stains can seep into their fibres. Wiping away stains with warm water is the safest and most convenient way to remove liquid stains, but always check the cleaning instructions for your awning material before removing stains.
Our expert awning installers can provide you with top tips for cleaning your new external awnings when your blinds are installed. For more information, get in touch with our team or book a free measure and quote today.
At Blinds-N-Shutters, our entire range of awnings is designed with quick cleaning and easy upkeep in mind. We make our awnings with a mix of durable, high-quality materials including mesh fabrics and see-through mesh fabrics.
If easy maintenance is your top priority, we recommend our selection of German-designed Markilux awnings. Markilux awnings can be made with self-cleaning fabrics that take the hassle out of maintaining your awnings.
During wet weather, the fibres of your Markilux awning will pick up any dirt, sand or dust from its surface. When pitched at a 14-degree angle, the rain will carry the dirt off the surface of the awning, providing a hassle-free cleaning solution during wet weather.
Markilux awnings also feature fully retractable cassettes that make it easy to protect your awning from dirt, debris and heavy rains. Fully retractable cassettes allow your awning to be rolled back into its case, providing complete protection from the elements. Simply retract your awning into its case during bad weather to prevent any damage or dirt from affecting the material.
During wet weather, storms and other harsh conditions, the best way to protect your awning is to retract it into its roller, cassette or case. Simply move your awning to the highest possible position until the weather improves.
To dry your awnings, wait for dry weather and pull your awning down to allow it to air dry. Once your awning is dry, retract it to your desired position.
