Clever and convenient, Automatic Awnings are perfect for Newcastle & Hunter homes
If you’re looking for convenient window furnishings that take care of themselves in windy weather, look no further than our Automatic Awnings! A popular option for all Australian homes, our Automatic Awnings respond to high winds and roll themselves up to keep the Awning fresh and functional.
Plus, with a huge range of fabric options and componentry colours, you can customise these Awnings to match the existing aesthetic of your home’s facade.
Contemporary and convenient, Automatic Awnings can be installed on almost any window!
Automatic Awnings combat Australia’s harsh, unpredictable weather conditions using clever lock-arm technology. In high winds, the lock arms release, allowing the blind to push itself up to the top of the window. This is handy when storms hit unexpectedly, and you aren’t home to retract them or simply forget to do it while you’re home!
Automatic Awnings were developed in the 1970s and still keep up with today’s newer, more expensive retractable Awnings. In fact, Auto Awnings are considered a “cornerstone” of the Australian Awning industry.
When you’re relaxing at home, you can also control your Auto Awnings manually. Thanks to the manual operation system, you can pull your Awnings down to any stopping point and leave them there as long as you like!
Plus, if you have Auto Awnings installed higher than usual, you can add a pull stick for easy operation from the ground.

Our Auto Awnings are available in three heavy-duty fabrics to withstand the elements: mesh/screen, acrylic and canvas. No matter what you choose, you can count on excellent light control, protection from the elements and full control over privacy in your home.
During our initial design consultation, we’ll share hundreds of fabric samples and colour combinations so that you can compare fabrics to the current aesthetic of your home’s facade.
Aside from our quality fabrics, you’ll also have the opportunity to customise the powder-coated componentry of your new Awnings. We have 15 rich, vibrant colours to choose from, or you can opt for a custom powder coat from the Dulux Colorbond range if our standard colours don’t fit the space.
Create a traditional Australian design that blends into the neighbourhood, or opt for something fresh and contemporary. The choice is yours with Pazazz Blinds & Shutters — Custom Awnings are our specialty.

The initial design consultation
You’re welcome to visit our team in our showroom in Warners Bay (15 minutes from the Newcastle CBD), or we can organise a convenient time to visit you at home. We offer free design consultations throughout Newcastle, Port Stephens, Maitland, Lake Macquarie and the Hunter Valley!
We’ll take meticulous measurements of the space and help determine the best window furnishings for your home. We’ll also listen to your design ideas and share fabric samples so that you can compare colours, patterns and designs to your home’s facade.
There’s no pressure to make a decision on the day, either. We’ll leave you with a quote and some samples to mull over for the time being!
A free measure & quote
During our initial design consultation, we’ll take detailed measurements to provide a competitive quote. We never “guesstimate” when it comes to quotes — we base our prices on the product and the size of the window at hand.
Remember, this is a 100% free service!
Supply & installation
Once you have approved all the fine details of your new Auto Awnings, we’ll send the designs to be manufactured in one of our factories in Australia or Asia. When they return to our showroom in Warners Bay, we’ll be in touch to book installation!
All of our products come with a long warranty, which is why it’s important for us to install the Awnings ourselves. We want to secure your warranty and ensure your investment functions perfectly for years to come.
Plus, when we say we take care of everything, we mean it. We always clean up after ourselves and aim to leave your home looking better than when we arrived… Mainly because we just installed some stylish new Awnings!

FAQs about our convenient Automatic Awnings
Automatic Awnings are designed to be left down all year round without you having to worry about bringing them up in high winds. Using “Auto Lock Arms”, the Awning has the capability to be pushed back up on its own in the case of high winds, taking the pressure off its fixing points which reduces the likelihood of damaging the blind.
Yes. Through the lock arms & guide rails, the awning can be brought down to any point.
The most popular choice of fabric in recent years has been the mesh fabric, providing a more modern look and allowing vision from inside your home or business. Acrylic & Canvas fabrics are also a great option for Automatic Awnings.
Automatic Awnings can only be operated manually by twisting the bottom rail to unlock the arms, allowing free movement of the blind. A pull stick can be supplied for awnings that are installed slightly out of reach, however for 2 storey applications we recommend the Pivot Arm Awning.
