Don’t just enjoy the great outdoors, embrace it.

The Australian summer can be harsh but also beautiful and if you’re like most Australians you want to enjoy as much of the warm weather as possible.

If you’re a lover of entertaining outside, we have a selection of outdoor Awnings that can help take your outdoor entertaining space to the next level. After all there’s nothing better than a barbecue with friends, a warm summer breeze and the smell of fresh grass and sausages.

Here at dollar curtains + blinds we have multiple solutions to protect you and your home from the Australian climate, and to help create the perfect outdoor entertaining space that you can enjoy all year round.



Zipscreen Awnings.

Designed with the Australian love of entertaining outdoors in mind this is a great choice for areas such as pergolas, verandas and balconies because it offers privacy and protection from the sun, wind, rain and insects all year round.


Our Zipscreen Awnings come in a fully sealed headbox with side channels that the Awning feeds into. This creates a neat and finished look that can blend seamlessly into your surrounding space whether open or closed, with colour options to suit popular Colourbond colours. This design also helps to create a better seal, helping to keep out those pesky insects and unwanted draughts when the awnings are closed.


Custom made and available up to 5.5m long, our Zipscreen Awnings can be made to suit most spaces. With high quality fabrics suitable for the Australian climate our Zipscreen Awnings protect not just your family from harmful UV rays but also your outdoor furniture, reducing fading and deterioration from the weather.

Aluminium Shutters.

Want to enclose that outdoor space from the elements or want some extra privacy? Our Aluminium Shutters can be used on voids or to create a wall while still having the versatility to open and close the louvres to control light, privacy, and air flow.

Sun, wind and waterproof, the durable construction of our Aluminium Shutters makes them a perfect fit for the outdoors. Sturdy and easy to clean Aluminium Shutters are becoming more and more popular. You can even match them with indoor Plantation Shutters to create a cohesive aesthetic across your home.

Available with a variety of styles to suit any space and functionality including hinged, bi-fold and fixed options, Aluminum Shutters dont just improve your homes appeal but also its value.


Folding Arm Awnings.

For those wanting to shade their outdoor space without building a permanent structure, our Folding Arm Awnings are the perfect option for you.


A stylish and streamlined Awning, these are ideal for areas such as courtyards, patios, pools, decks, and terraces. When extended, it has no need for support posts underneath which keeps the area completely clear for furniture and more importantly entertaining!


When not in use, such as over winter when you want to get more light into the home, the Awning folds back discreetly into its cover for a neat and tidy finish.  Whether your home is coastal, contemporary or modern we custom make our Awnings to suit your style with our range of different fabric and hardware colour options.
