External Automatic Guide Blinds are custom made in our Toowoomba Workshop to ensure a precise fit and quality product. The Automatic Guide Blinds are spring loaded and adjustable, automatically locking in at any height along the guide bars.  Easy manual operation allows you to determine how much privacy and sun protection you require. 

Light weight acrylic fabrics and mesh fabrics are very popular for this style of external blind.

Standard Inclusions for Automatic Guide Blinds:

  • Guide & Roller System: The guide for the blind is attached to the wall using the appropriate fittings dependent on your wall construction. 
  • Spring Loaded: Awning arms slide along the guide and can be locked in any position using the spring mechanism. 
  • Roller: In the bottom of the blind there is a five sided, powder coated roller that is held when levering the blind up and down. 
  • Top Roller: The fabric automatically rolls on and off the top roller as you position the blind. 

Optional Extras Available for Automatic Blinds:

  • Pelmets: Looks great and protects your blind when rolled up.
  • Valance: Straight or scalloped along the bottom edge of the blind.
  • Sign Writing: For commercial applications, a logo or business name on blinds and awnings to promote your business.
