Are Outdoor Blinds Suitable For Perth Weather Conditions?

Last updated on



The City of Perth, renowned for its sunny days, conceals a challenging climate underneath. It’s Australia’s sunniest city, exposing residents to intense UV rays, coupled with being one of the windiest cities globally. Protecting your Perth home becomes imperative in this deceptively harsh weather. Let’s delve a bit into Perth weather before we go into how to protect your home.

Perth & Its Weather

Perth is mainly known for its heat, those 40-degree days ring a bell to those who are familiar with Perth. The average temperature range is between 17.5 – 30°C, but the heat is frequent, with January and February often reaching the mid 30’s on a regular basis. But the heat isn’t the only extreme. Perth is the windiest city in Australia and the third windiest city in the world, Perth also receives significant rainfall during winter, with an average of 397.3 mm (15.64 in), on 47.6 rain days, between June and August. Basically, your home needs protection from the Perth weather, no matter how pretty it is. Let’s explore the myriad ways to fortify your home against the elements.

Our Electrifying Alfresco Outdoor Blinds

Nu-Style Shutters presents an extensive array of exclusive slimline Alfresco electric outdoor blinds, tailored to shield your outdoor spaces from Perth’s varied climate for year-round enjoyment.

Our Universal Blinds offer unparalleled functionality and style, boasting the capability to span up to 6 metres seamlessly in a single, slimline piece. With a sleek design featuring smooth curves and a discreet track and guide system, these blinds effortlessly complement the aesthetics of any home while providing essential protection from Perth’s unique weather conditions. Crafted uniquely for each space, customisation options abound, with a wide selection of powder-coated paints and woven fabric colours at your disposal. Experience the perfect blend of outdoor comfort and weather resistance as you enjoy uninterrupted views and shelter in your alfresco area, patio, or balcony. Say goodbye to cumbersome mechanisms; the user-friendly, remote-controlled 240v electric motor operation simplifies raising and lowering the blinds, empowering you to effortlessly curate the ambience of your outdoor entertaining areas.

Alternatively, our Galaxy Blinds, with the smallest pelmet size starting at 100mm (depending on blind size), offer unparalleled versatility and aesthetic appeal. These blinds boast an impressive capability, reaching heights of up to 3 metres and widths of 4.4 metres. In comparison to other outdoor blinds on the market, which commonly feature pelmet sizes ranging from 135mm to 175mm, our Nu-Style Galaxy blinds stand out for their innovative design and adherence to strict production standards. As fabricators, we not only manufacture our own blinds but also source raw materials from Ziptrak, ensuring quality and consistency in every product. Unlike many others in Perth who subcontract manufacturing, our in-house fabrication process enables heightened efficiency for our customers and protects you from Perth weather all year round. 

Ziptrak Blinds

Ziptrak, the original track-guided outdoor blind system, conceived by Australians for Australian weather, provides a sealed blind system shielding your patio and furniture from wind, rain, dust, glare, and insects. These weatherproof blinds serve as the ideal solution for safeguarding your home from the elements.

Moreover, Ziptrak blinds offer protection against unwanted guests, allowing you to enjoy extended hours outdoors without resorting to toxic bug repellants. Nu-Style Shutters, an accredited and authorised fabricator of Ziptrak guided blinds for Western Australia, has completed over 5000 professional installations, ensuring homes stay safe amidst Perth’s harsh environment.

Crank Handle Blinds

Perth’s reputation isn’t solely confined to its sunshine; it’s also renowned for its relentless winds (hello, 3 p.m. sea breeze!). Thankfully, our Crank Handle Blinds have come to the rescue! These simple, cost-effective shade blinds offer protection from the sun and wind without compromising your view. Crafted with quality fabric from the HVG Visiontex range, our crank handle blinds reduce heat transmission, provide UV protection, and resist mildew and saltwater, ensuring durability and longevity. Operating them is a breeze with just a turn of the crank pole, requiring no track guides or posts for installation and offering uninterrupted views..
