Is the sun streaming relentlessly through your windows? You wouldn’t be alone. It’s inevitable on the Sunshine Coast, at the Gold Coast, in Brisbane and everywhere else in the sunny state of Queensland.
On cold days, a sun-drenched outlook is an absolute pleasure but it can quickly turn into a heated topic desperately in need of a solution when temperatures soar.
When power bills are soaring at the same time, the last thing you’d want is to have to run your air conditioning full bore for at least half a day at a time during hot weather.
Thankfully, an elegant solution was devised many moons ago, some say in Ancient Greece—louvred shutters. The louvre blades are a genius concept. Blocking UV rays in full sun is effected with a simple tweak.
All other louvre settings, other than fully closed, provide gloriously filtered light—from subtle hints of heavenly light to handsomely banded horizontal slats open to the view, similarly to the familiar look through venetian blinds.
At Balcony Shutters Australia, we a few variations on the theme of plantation shutters. One of the most popular of these is one that is closest to the original concept—our fixed shutters.
Fixed shutters do their job without fuss. They provide excellent protection from the elements—sun, wind and rain. They would certainly lengthen the odds of your window glass ever being broken by blown hail, or a rogue cricket ball.
Added privacy for your property is another benefit with fixed shutters. You can enjoy fresh air with the windows wide open, yet have absolute visual shut-out from prying eyes. Sleeping with the windows open will no longer be an intimidating proposition with sturdy aluminium shutters in place.
Our fixed shutters are manufactured using powder coated aluminium, right here at our Caloundra headquarters. This means our friendly and accommodating team of technicians can design your shutters to suit—the dimensions can be millimetre-perfect and the colour can be selected to match your existing colour scheme.
We cover the Queensland coast, from the Gold Coast up past and including Brisbane, and of course our local area at the Sunshine Coast. Our installers handle everything that goes into fitting our shutter blinds. You don’t need to worry about anything other than allowing us to measure up and, together, deciding on your best colour choice.
Once we’ve installed your new fixed shutters, you’ll see the summer sun in a whole new light.
Our aluminium fixed shutters have a clean, sophisticated look. They are ideal for installation to windows and balcony openings at residential and commercial properties—high-rise buildings included.
If you’re looking for a permanent and affordable solution to control over light and shade, as well as over privacy, fixed shutters are an ideal choice.
With our Cyclone Series, you can have your aluminium fixed shutters installed vertically or horizontally. Vertical installation is the popular option when privacy is a deciding factor.
Balcony Shutters Australia has many solutions that will add privacy and protection, as well as value to your property.
With your windows free to open but safe in the sun, wind and rain, and your outdoor areas more private and protected, we’ll have you enjoying your property all year round.
