Guide to Windmaster Blinds

What are Windmaster blinds?

Windmaster blinds are a simple patio blind option for your outdoor area and are one of the best outdoor blinds for wind and rain protection.

Whether you’re looking for new patio blinds, blinds for your balcony, or even an alfresco area, Windmaster blinds are the ideal option for many locations.

What makes Windmaster blinds unique is their ability to stay locked in place when strong winds hit. Many other patio or café blinds can withstand small amounts of wind, but if you live near the coast or in wind-prone areas, you’ll need something stronger.

How are Windmaster blinds designed?

These wind resistant outdoor blinds feature heavy-duty base rails, locks, and heavy-duty channels to keep your awnings set in one place, keeping your alfresco protected from the mighty Australian wind.

Benefits of Windmaster outdoor blinds

Use your outdoor area all year round

With Windmaster blinds, don’t be limited to only using your outdoor area when it’s sunny. Instead, enjoy a comfortable and dry environment, even when the weather isn’t so great.

Provides insulation

Windmaster blinds act as an effective insulator for your home.

Once installed, Windmaster blinds can reduce up to 94% of heat entering your home and make for a much more bearable internal temperature during summer, so you won't have to rely on your aircon all the time!

Are available in sunscreen and PVC fabric options

Sunscreen fabric is an incredibly tough, hard-wearing fabric that not only withstands the rough winds, but also blocks out harsh UV light throughout the day. This protects your skin from harmful light, and prevents pesky faded furniture, season after season.

PVC doesn’t have the same UV filtering ability, however it’s great for providing protection from the rain and wind. PVC is also a more water resistant material option for your blinds. Choose from waterproof clear or tinted PVC.

Added privacy for your outdoor area

Create a more private outdoor area by choosing to install patio blinds. The fabric options for Windmaster blinds are great for giving you the flexibility to choose the amount of privacy you want for the area. This is great if you have kids and want to keep them out of any prying eyes, or simply just want to keep away from nosy neighbours.

Easy to customise

Windmaster blinds are entirely customisable to match your personal aesthetic and lifestyle. Choose from a range of colours to find the right look for you!

Say goodbye to flies

One of the most unwanted party guests, particularly in warmer weather, is the pesky fly. Flies buzz around guests’ heads, land on your food and get in your face. With patio blinds, keep the party to only the invited guests.

How to measure your outdoor area

Measuring your outdoor area to order your new blinds in the right size is very easy when you follow our how to guide on measuring for Windmaster blinds.

We recommend choosing a recess fit for your blinds. This means that your blinds will fit within the pillars or posts on your patio area. There are a few ways you can measure your area. These are:

  1. Using a pen, paper, and a steel measuring tape
  2. Using a laser level (if you have one). This can make it simpler to measure, but it’s not essential!

A handy tip to remember when you’re measuring your outdoor area is to always write your measurements in millimetres (mm) and to check your measurements a few times!
