    It is common knowledge that hot or burning embers entering the home during a bushfire is a major factor in the ignition of the building itself. Our Rollashield sentry roller shutters have been credited with saving homes from burning to the ground when other surrounding properties were not so fortunate.

    The sentry roller shutter has been extensively tested by the CSIRO under severe bushfire simulated conditions and provided to be able to withstand a maximum radiant heat exposure of 40 kw/m2 after 60 minutes. As no ignition or flaming was observed throughout the testing, the sentry roller shutter has received a Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) of 40.

    Sentry roller shutters are designed with the sentry fireshield extruded slat profile, making them ideal for residential or commercial use when added strength and security is required. When assembled with our extended guides, the roller shutter can span to a maximum of 4600mm in width.

    Along with bushfire protection, there are many additional benefits to installing our roller shutters on your windows and doors. Rollashield shutters not only offer protection and peace of mind, they provide a more comfortable and eco-friendly environment. Lightweight yet extremely strong the shutter consists of an aluminium skin injected with a polyurethane foam for added strength and insulation qualities.

    Increases security + privacy – Window shutters present an immediate visible deterrent, protecting your home against burglary and vandalism. They offer you privacy during both day and night. You control the extent by simply adjusting the shutter to suit your needs. When fully open the shutter is completely out of sight leaving you unrestricted views through your window.

    Increases insulation – Shutters offer thermal insulation properties that reduce the effects of summer heat as well as retaining the warmth during the colder winter months.

    Energy cost savings - The cost of heating and cooling your home is substantially reduced all year round making this product an ideal investment for the future. Rollashield shutters can save up to 40% energy savings on heating and cooling costs.

    Noise + light control - University tests have proven that roller shutters have a positive effect in the reduction of noise levels from outside of the home. Light and ventilation can be adjusted to create a pleasant, softly lit atmosphere.

    Manufactured right here in Australia, our roller shutters are available in several painted coatings that are long lasting and fade resistant under the most demanding conditions.

    We offer several operating options available which allow you to control your roller shutters with the touch of a button from inside your home. Our e-series drive system is an affordable motorised control system that is battery operated and therefore not reliant on mains power. Solar charging is also available.

    Roller shutters are available in selected stores. Please contact your local store for more information.

    Creating an energy-efficient home calls for measures beyond typical air-conditioning and fans. Keeping the heat out of your home is better than cooling your house, both financially and environmentally. One of the best ways to beat the summer heat is to include outdoor blinds and awnings. At  Dollar Curtains + Blinds, we strive to provide you with quality outdoor blinds and awnings that you can use to block the heat this summer, keep your home cool and make your exterior appealing.

    Window Awnings

    You can block out the harsh Australian sun this summer by installing window awnings. Awnings protect you from glare and also prevent your interior furnishings such as your furniture and flooring from getting UV damage from the sun’s rays. With Dollar Curtains + Blinds quality fabric, you can prevent up to 95% of solar energy from entering your home.

    To ensure that you keep the exterior of your house appealing, you can purchase custom-made awnings and match the colours to the exterior design of your home. In our range of window awnings, we have three styles you can choose from - Straight Drop, Fixed Guide, and Automatic.

    When shopping for awnings, remember to select fabrics that can survive the harsh Australian climate. For this reason, we offer a fabric guarantee for water, mildew, and bacteria resistance. You can also purchase fire-resistant fabrics.

    What if you don't want to fold every awning manually? We've got you covered. You can choose from our operating options - spring roller, manual crank, or motorised. By combining our motorisation system with your home automation system, you can control all our window awnings with a button.

    Alfresco Awnings + Outdoor Window Blinds

    Installing outdoor blinds is an excellent way to keep the sunshine out of your outdoor entertaining areas and to help keep the interior of your home a cool temperature in Summer. You can acquire any of our stylish outdoor window blinds to block out the heat and also maintain the elegance of your home's exterior. Our range of outdoor blinds includes:

    •    Outdoor patio blinds
    •    Alfresco blinds
    •    Café blinds
    •    Bistro blinds
    •    Verandah blinds
    •    Zip track blinds
    •    Zipscreen blinds

    To ensure that you find the fabric that matches your outdoor shading requirement, we stock canvas, mesh, acrylic, and PVC blinds. All the materials are designed to survive the outdoors and resist moisture, mildew and stains from external elements.

    With Dollar Curtains + Blinds, you can personalise your blinds and awnings to fit your windows and doors. We also have several styles for you to choose from:

    • The straight drop blinds are ideal for traditional window frames. With these blinds, you can protect yourself from harmful UV rays and achieve a modern simple look.
    • The cable guide blinds are excellent if you prefer an industrial look, accompanied by privacy and ventilation. The cables are made from high tensile stainless steel, making them suitable for coastal homes.
    • Deep channel blinds block off the light and allow multiple lock-off points.
    • If you live in windy areas, we have the side retention system which completely encloses off the protected area, leaving no space for dust and dirt to penetrate.

    To avoid adjusting your blinds manually, you can also motorise your blinds. Motorisation helps you adjust your blinds throughout the day to the exact positions you desire without moving around. You can move all your blinds according to the direction and the intensity of the sun..
