Sun Blinds in Melbourne
The basic pull down sun blind is possibly the most commonly known exterior blind.
Everyone at some stage has lived somewhere that had them. Operated via a pull stick you simply have to locate the hook of the stick into an eyelet at the base rail and pull down.
Customers often enter our showroom and say – “I want one of them but not with the stripe”. 50 years ago when everyone got their sun blinds the colour choice was very limited but today there is over 300 colours with multiple fabric options available.
We have installed basic sun blinds on some of Melbourne’s premier real estate with stunning results.
Modern colour selection and stainless steel components can create a very modern looking product that is quite economical.
At Undercover Blinds, our sun blinds are made to our very high standards with no cheap imported components used. Our fabric is ultrasonically cut and welded and this is as advanced and fabric manufacturing technology gets anywhere in the world.

What to consider when buying outdoor blinds
We custom build and fit our outdoor blinds directly from our base of operations in Melbourne. Here are some answers to common questions from customers on our custom outdoor blind build and installations.
What role do you want your outdoor blind to fulfil?
With a variety of options, when it comes to outdoor blinds it is imperative to consider exactly what you’d like to achieve in your space. Are you wanting rain protection? Shade in the warmer months? A dry space over your door or a BBQ area? Perhaps you are looking for additional privacy in your outdoor space. Talking to Undercover Melbourne’s outdoor blinds experts is a good place to start. Discuss your outdoor blind project with our team and we’ll work with you to find the perfect outdoor blind to suit your needs and your outdoor space.
To ensure you select the blind that meets all of your needs, we need to consider the environment the outdoor blinds will find themselves in and the times of the year you are going to want to be maximising their use. Are you only planning on enjoying the beautiful summer weather or do you love being outdoors all year-round where a waterproof retractable roof system would suit your project better?
Ease of use
Do you envision yourself using this space over different times of the day or just once a day or a few times a week? Does the ease of being able to push a button to extend and retract the outdoor blinds appeal? Perhaps you would like to have the outdoor blind connected to your smart home system. Or perhaps you simply want to manually wind the blinds in and out as you see fit. We always say, if the blinds are easy to use, you will get more value (and more use) from them!
Type of fabric
When considering fabrics for your outdoor blind, it is best to delve back into some of your climate considerations to ensure you can use them as often you’d like. Are you looking for an acrylic semi-waterproof fabric to maximise your outdoor shade OR are you wanting a see-through mesh?
Once we have established the your basic requirements in terms of outdoor blind fabrics, we can turn our attention to the colour selection. After all, your blind’s functionality and ability to cope with your outdoor conditions is critical, but how it looks is something you’re going to have to live with and enjoy. And that’s where our outdoor blind experts can help. We’ve styled countless Melbourne homes with our outdoor blinds and we will ensure the blinds we supply are beautiful and enhance your property’s appeal.
Not only can your outdoor blinds enhance your outdoor living space, they can also save you energy by retaining heat in the winter (saving you on heating costs) and providing welcome shade in the hot summer months. Custom built to “Melbourne’s four seasons in a day climate,” Undercover’s outdoor blinds won’t simply look good, they’ll help you save energy too!
