Awnings, Torquay and Geelong

External awnings have come a long way – no longer are they brown and beige-striped or white and green-striped with clunky track systems that jam up easily. Many of us have struggled with opening or closing an external awning or two in our lifetime! And often this struggle occurs at the worst times, like when it’s pouring rain or blowing gale-force winds. Champion Blinds installs quality external awnings for customers across Geelong and the Surf Coast.

Awnings today are more like architectural masterpieces, designed to withstand wind, rain, hail, the harsh Australian sun and more. They’re also not clunky like they used to be, you’ll be able to open and close your awning with ease, whether it’s one metre wide or four metres wide. Smart track systems glide open and closed with minimal exertion by the user.

Champion Blinds uses only the highest-quality brands such as Zipscreen which are among the sleekest awning options on the market. Zipscreen awnings can be installed almost flush against the window for a clean, minimal effect.

Zipstream awning Geelong & Torquay

Zipstream is described as the ultimate screening solution.

Described as the ultimate external screening solution, Zipscreen creates a weather and bug-proof screen to enclose and protect outdoor areas such as verandas, pergolas and balconies. Zipscreens effectively help you create a new room with the ultimate outdoors perspective.

Standard Zipscreen screens come in widths up to five metres but if you have an even wider space to enclose, Zipscreen Extreme will span a seven-metre gap. The variety of size options means there is a Zipscreen for almost any space, including home and office windows.

Zipscreens feature the latest interlocking technology and their self-aligning channels mean they are suitable for areas that do not follow standard square alignments.

Want added privacy? Zipscreen comes in various external fabrics, including screen meshes that control visibility and stop prying eyes.

If traditional awnings are not the preferred option for your Geelong or Torquay home, consider Zipscreen to bring the outdoors indoors.

Zipscreen features:

  • Australian designed and manufactured
  • Sun and UV ray protection
  • Insect resistant
  • Wind resistant. The Zipscreen is rated six on the Beaufort Wind Scale
  • Privacy
  • Zipscreen Extreme is approved for coastal conditions
  • Easy to install
  • Choice of motorised or crank gear control
  • Powder coated for long-lasting protection
  • Comes in standard colours classic cream, paperpark, natural adonised, asteroid bronze, black and pure white. Zipscreen can also be custom-matched to match existing décor.

Our awnings are particularly popular for our clients in Torquay as they provide protection from the sun and can also prevent warmth from your heating in winter from escaping. Professionally installed awnings can help save you money on heating and cooling by acting as an effective physical barrier.

We also install folding arm awnings in Torquay and Geelong for a seamless look, too.
