Many of our home have patios or verandahs on which we wish to relax and enjoy our days and evenings, but sometimes we need to shield ourselves from our neighbour’s eyes (because they too have a patio or verandah – right near ours) or we need to protect ourselves from the sun, wind or even rain. One excellent solution is to install External Aluminium Shutters.

Shutters are both beautiful and functional. They provide a touch of elegance while protecting your home and patio from the heat and sunlight and are designed to provide privacy when closed and a great view when open as well as keeping the heat at bay when the temperature rises. These Shutters are designed to block out the hot sun while allowing you to control the light and air flow in your home.

External Aluminium Shutters have been designed for such applications as: Rear Decks, Patios, Balcony’s, Court yards and wet areas, and can be installed horizontally or vertically. They are made from reinforced aluminium for strength and are available in a range of powder coated colours to meet Australian standards. Coming in a variety of styles including sliding panels, multifold, hinged, or fixed, these Shutters are resistant to chipping, sagging, warping and require minimum maintenance – making them an incredibly durable product.

With the Toowoomba winter definitely here, keeping warm is always on our minds. Here are some tips to keep your home warm this winter.

If you live in a poorly insulated home, and many of us do, you could spend thousands during winter on energy bills. The key to understanding how to keep warm is that you lose more heat by radiation to your surroundings than you do by convection to the air. This is why your house feels cold when you get home, even after you’ve turned on the heating; though the air may warm up, the walls take far longer to do so and continue to make you shiver.

One way you can overcome this problem and minimise your energy bill is to install Roller Blinds on your windows.

During the day, your windows let in more radiant energy than gets out; sunlight can enter through the glass, but the window is opaque to the infrared radiation trying to escape. At night, however, windows can get extremely cold, resulting in energy losses of 50-100 watts per square metre, equivalent to running an old-fashioned light bulb.

The best way to prevent this heat loss is to lower your blinds immediately after dusk. They provide an extra barrier to radiant heat loss, add insulation and reduce draughts. Roller Blinds raise the internal surface temperature by up to 15°C and, if you add curtains, you can make the room feel even cosier.

If you're looking for something to cover your windows that keeps the heat in this winter, call us at Complete Blinds today on 4639 2535 to organise your free quote!

Vertical Blinds are often overlooked, often underappreciated, but are some of the most practical window treatments around.

Why do we at Complete Blinds consider Vertical Blinds to be so practical and why do we love them?

Perfect for Sliding Glass or Patio Doors

Window coverings for sliding glass doors and patio doors need to open from side-to-side (just as the door does) and need to be durable and easy to clean since doors are usually higher traffic areas. In terms of window coverings that slide from side to side and offers louvres or vanes that can be tilted to allow various degrees of light in, then there’s really only one choice: Vertical Blinds. When it comes to patio or sliding glass door window treatments, the product that will provide the best functionality and most versatility is a Vertical Blind.

Ideal for Wide Windows

When it comes to window treatments for wide windows, Vertical Blinds are the best solution. The majority of window treatments are operated in an up and down fashion, making the weight of a blind a primary concern. At a certain weight a blind will simply be too heavy to be lifted. The larger the window treatment, the heavier it will be. Windows that are either very wide or very tall will be difficult to cover with one blind. The side-to-side operation of a vertical blind makes it such that weight is not a concern. Vertical Blinds are able to cover windows as large as 12’ x 10’ using one headrail. A window of this size would require multiple blinds or shades if any other product beside a vertical blind were used.

Wide Range of Colours and Fabrics

With a choice from hundreds of decorator colours, patterns, plains, translucent or blockout fabrics, our range of Vertical Blinds offer a varied choice to complement any décor.
