We just had ZipTrack blinds installed in our alfresco and we couldnt be happier. The blinds dont block our view out and we love the privacy it offers at the same time. The blinds transformed our alfresco into another room we can now utilise as it keeps the hot sun out. Thanks to Travis for an awesome job.

Just had a 5.8 m blind installed on our deck. Highly recommended. The whole process was smooth from the beginning to end. Trevor who was great, informative, no pressure and gave us a great price we could not refuse compared to other companies. Mandy managing the invoicing and scheduling, and Paul installing the blind who is a great professional tradesperson. All very friendly and easy to contact. The product is of great quality. A big thanks and will enjoy our afternoon wines on the deck without the sun beating down.Cheers Elaine and Terry Hetbert.

We purchased 2 large electric wind out awnings and new pull down blinds for our alfresco area from your company last year. We were completely satisfied with our new products and right from the quoting stage to installation the company has been excellent in every way. We have just had our maintenance check and the blinds have now all been recently serviced and are in perfect condition. The company is awesome to deal with and have always kept us informed on time every time. Highly recommend All About Shade for anyone looking for all types of shade ideas! Very professional and their products are fantastic!Nichole Howard Mandurah.

Hi all... Just had work done on 4 patio openings between brick columns/walls at my Mum's house, she and I are extremely pleased with the quality of materials used, the ease of operating the blinds and the job finish. I noted the durability of the brackets and lower slider bar (for want of a better name - the bar attached to the bottom of the blind) in particular, which are of a quite solid thick gauge aluminium, more than adequate for the task. The installers went to extra lengths to make the job aesthetically pleasing from inside and out and really fine tuned the positioning and function of the blinds until they moved up and down effortlessly. Well done Gary and Steve! 😄👍

We were very pleased with this company, they responded almost immediately. They arrived on time to give the quote, were competitive and pleasant to deal with at all times. The work was completed efficiently and does enhance our home, making our outside areas useable in all seasons . They seem to be maintenance free and go up and down a lot easier than other products we viewed. They have proved to be everything they claim to be and have been tested in the winter storms. It was a pleasure to deal with them.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much rain do Crank & Clip Blinds keep out?

The weight and weave density of the mesh will influence the level of transparency, UV and rain protection. Depending on the type of mesh, you can expect a 70-90% protection from rain, wind, sun and UV.

Do Crank & Clip Blinds keep the wind out and how do they handle windy conditions?

In windy conditions, Crank & Clip Blinds should be left down and locked, or fully retracted. During severe weather events, your blinds should be fully retracted.

You may find Crank & Clip Blinds are a little tricky to operate during windy conditions due to the pressure of the wind on the blind material. Use your hand to push against the blind material to reduce this pressure and then operate the blind.

Care must be taken when operating Rootf to Fence Blinds in windy conditions.

How do I clean my Crank & Clip Blinds?
  • Keeping the Sunscreen mesh or PVC clean is an important part of maintenance to the blind.
  • Clean the blind with a soft cloth and soapy cold water. Allow to dry before rolling up
  • We recommend VuPlex® for PVC blind cleaning and maintenance. Depending on the type of PVC installed, there may be manufacturer instructions on how to best maintain that specific PVC
  • PVC will show marks more readily than fabric, so ensure you are treating the surface with care. Be careful to avoid scratching the PVC material
  • Ideally, PVC blinds should be dryed with a cloth for the best cleaning results
  • Never apply full strength detergents, cleaning fluids, soaps, insecticides or garden sprays to the blind material
  • Never use bore water to clean the material, or allow bore water sprinkler systems to hit the blind
  • Never allow petrochemicals or solvents to touch the blind surface
  • Do not use a high-pressure hose to clean the blind
  • Do not use window cleaning detergents to clean the blind
  • Do not allow bird droppings, dirt or stains to remain on the material
  •  
What is the best colour fabric to choose to be able to see out of the best and give more privacy?

If you are looking at having some airflow, but primarily block sun and glare, then shade materials will be most effective. Sunscreen mesh materials can block a high degree of wind and rain (up to about 96%), whilst also somewhat maintaining the temperature within your space.

Sunscreen mesh fabrics provide privacy during the day, allowing you to see outside but restrict the view into the outdoor area. At night, the opposite occurs; you won’t be able to see beyond the fabric, whilst someone standing outside will clearly be able to see in if you have a light on within your outdoor area.

To find out more about the wide variety of mesh types and brands view the Visiontex® Range here or please contact us to find out more.

 

What warranty comes with the blinds?

All About Shade provide a 5-year warrantee on all installations. Additionally:

HVG Fabrics provide a 10-year warrantee on the mesh supplied with your Ziptrak® Outdoor Blinds.

Please directly contact us event of any queries or warranty claims.

Do Crank & Clip Blinds keep out residual noise?

The aluminium frame system has not been tested for ‘residual noise’. To find out more about the Crank & Clip Blinds and their physical properties, please contact us or the mesh/PVC manufacturer.

Do you need council approval for Crank & Clip blinds?

Most Crank & Clip Blinds do not require council approval as they are not a “fixed structure”. We do however recommend you seek advice from your particular council prior to installation.

Buildings in a community group or managed by a strata may have restrictions that you should consider before deciding to install outdoor blinds.

Can you do a quote from house plans?

We can provide a price guide based on house plans however we would require an on-site inspection prior to finalising an installation price to ensure we are installing a system perfectly suited to your situation.

To arrange a quote off house plans please send through the details to info@allaboutshade.com.au

Will my cat shred the fabric?

Cat’s as a general rule don’t seem interested in the mesh used on Crank & Clip Blinds however, we can’t guarantee your cat doesn’t have a vendetta against the new outdoor blinds.
The Mesh we use is of the highest quality and can withstand a high degree of punishment but damage from pets is not covered by the warrantee.

If there is a panel damaged to the point where it is not useable please contact us and we can arrange to supply and install a new mesh screen for that section.

For any other issues with your Outdoor blind system, please contact us, and we will be able to assist in the event of any queries or warranty claims.
