Awnings and Melbourne’s climate: The perfect match

May 2, 2016

As far as window furnishings go, there is no type more suited to the many extremes of the weather in Melbourne than awnings. They are easily deployed and wound back when needed, and coming with durable parts and components as standard. Couple this with the wide variety of designs and colours to choose from, and it is little wonder why they are so popular for both residents and business owners alike in the city of Melbourne.

There is also a much more diverse range of many different types of awnings that are available on the market today, too. From the more traditional drop downs that are commonly found adorning older homes, to retractable covers that seek to enhance accessibility, there’s a type out there for almost anyone. Throughout all of these different types, however, is an assurance of durability, reliability, and an addition of practicality to your home or business.

In this article, we’re going to be going into a bit more detail as to why they have become so popular in Melbourne. At The Blinds Spot Co, our awnings are made to the highest of standards from Australian made fabrics and parts in our Melbourne based factory. We can also provide you with a professional and efficient installation process, and one that makes sure that your new covers are fitted perfectly and to within your set budget.

Easier to use than ever before

Awnings were once quite hard and cumbersome to use, and for those that are old enough to remember, the old pulley rods of yesteryear won’t bring up fond memories. Nowadays, they are fitted to the latest in glider technology, which allows for both ease of use, and taut fabric without any creases or sags.

Built to last

All of the types of awnings that there are have one aspect in common; their superior components. They will come made from the highest quality of powder coated Australian aluminium, tempered to withstand all of the weather conditions that we face here in Melbourne and across the country.

Variety of designs to choose from

Melbourne is a colourful and vibrant city, and awnings in the modern day reflect this through the wide range of colours and styles that they come in. From a more sleek mesh look, to traditional fabrics and solid colours, the possibilities for customising them are nearly endless. Chances are that you will be easily able to tailor the look of them to directly compliment your home or business’ exterior.
