Our Aluminium Awnings
CSIRO testing shows that an aluminium awning can deflect up to 90% of heat that would otherwise transfer through your window.
So, if you’re looking for comfort during Queensland’s hot summer months without running your air con full blast, d-bLINDS aluminium awnings are the perfect solution.
Our Fabric Awnings
A fabric awning is the more classic option. Awnings have a lengthy history and fabric awnings were popularised on American storefronts during the 1800s.
When it comes to functionality, the ability to raise and lower a fabric awning to deal with heat and glare is a standout winner. The beauty of fabric awnings is obvious.
And of course, with a wide range of fabric colours and patterns, you can easily find the look that will add the right note at your home or business.
Make Your Awning Choice With Ease
Choosing the style of awning that will best suit you can be dictated by the look you’re after or the degree to which your property is exposed to the elements.
Aluminium could be the way to go where durability is your main concern. You might also choose powder-coated aluminium to match the existing use of Colorbond at your premises.
Price should not be the deciding factor. We make sure our prices are always well within reason. Our business is here today thanks to happy customers.
We supply and install enviable awnings at affordable prices, and we’re here to help you get what’s best for your windows.
Benefits of Awning Installations
Whether you’re a homeowner or commercial customer, awnings offer many advantages. For residential customers especially, they offer an element of discretion which allows you to retain some privacy from your neighbours.
Help to Retain Heat
Irrespective of whether you opt for fabric or aluminium designs, awnings can offer warmth on cool evenings. They will retain up to 10-20% of the sun’s heat after it goes down, which means you can also save money in the winter months by reducing your reliance on heaters in outdoor spaces.
Protection from Inclement Weather
You won’t have to stress about the weather when it comes to gatherings again because, as well as protecting you from the sun, awnings also shield you from other inclement weather.
Form & Function
Perhaps one advantage that many overlook is an awning’s ability to combine form and function. We offer a wide range of options for you to choose from and will always take your vision into account.

Pergola awnings: A more costly option, these awnings are fixed in place and cover all sides. They may include glass and are great for creating an extra room outdoors.

The decision is yours to make based on your outdoor climate. Unfortunately, fabric awnings are not able to withstand particularly foul weather conditions if not looked after properly. If left up, they can collapse from the built-up weight of snow or be blown down by strong gales. If you want a covering which will protect your windows from extreme weather conditions, aluminium awnings can do a better job, but it is still recommended to put them down in more extreme situations. Fabric awnings are easier to roll up and protect in cases, and often look more aesthetically pleasing than aluminium awnings on shop fronts, so make your choice wisely.
Awnings can be made of many different kinds of fabric, but the primary three are canvas, vinyl and acrylic. There are pros to each one, and it is important that you consider the benefits and disadvantages of each before buying. Canvas is best for use in indoor shopping malls where the fabric will not get wet and mouldy, whereas vinyl is waterproof and great for use outdoors. If you live in a windy area, acrylic awnings are best suited to your property due to their ability to resist mild to moderate winds. Ultimately, you have a choice to make based on your locational circumstances.
Cassette awnings are made of fabric. They are fully retractable and can be pulled back into a plastic encasing to avoid any damage from the weather when not in use. This can be done either through manual or electric work, both of which we can offer. Non-cassette awnings don’t have this feature and are left exposed to the elements and dirt when not in use. They are the cheaper option but have little protection, which means they have shorter lifespans than the cassette or semi-cassette options.
We offer all kinds of coloured fabrics for our awnings; the possibilities are endless! From funky primary colours of red, blue and green to modest, natural shades of beige and grey, you are bound to find what you are looking for here with us. If there is one you currently have in mind, ask one of our friendly team members whether the colour you fancy is in stock. If not, we can most likely source it for you.
There is no one-price-fits-all when it comes to awnings. Although we try to make our range as affordable as possible, they can cost anywhere between $100 to $1,000 depending on your choice. With so many different sizes and types available, you are best asking us directly for a quote. Just tell us the measurements of the area you want under the awning and the material you would like, alongside any specifics with cassette or non-cassette features.
