Outdoor Blinds

Outdoor Clear PVC Blinds Hunter WetlandsOutdoor blinds are a great way to create or extend your outdoor space. Control air flow, light and the temperature of your area with outdoor blinds. Shade mesh outdoor blinds will provide shade from the sun whilst allowing air to travel through creating a comfortable and very usable outdoor area. Clear PVC blinds are great for full weather protection and extending outdoor seating capacity in cafes and restaurants. They come in various styles such as straight drop, wire guide or channel blinds.

Our Latest Work

"Awning solves our problem with direct sunlight and difficulty with putting up any other kind of shade. Service was extremely good. Very prompt response, helpful advice and friendly approach. It was refreshing to deal with a supplier who responded straight away to our request and kept us regularly updated on progress."

Alice & Mark 

Folding Arm Awning

"After a number of alternative providers failed to attend scheduled quotation appointments we contact Tim at 4.00pm. Tim was immediately proactive and set an appointment at our house at 8.30 the next day. In the meantime, Tim mailed photographs to give us an indication of his work. True to his word, Tim attended and provided us a quote on the spot. Later that day we accepted and agreed on an installation date. The product was delivered and installed on the agreed date. We are very happy with Tim's service and advice, the product itself and the final result. We would recommend East Coast Shade Design, Thanks."
