A side channel awning is a straight drop shade solution with enclosed side channels to seal outdoor or open areas off from the elements. When open, the shades allow light and warmth through but when closed, the shades create a closed-off, intimate space and provides protection from the wind, rain, heat and enhanced privacy.
Our custom-made shade solutions are built to your specification. Our cost-effective shades can be made in multiple colours, styles, and fabrics to suit your design and enhance the look of your home or business.
We can also install your shades proud from the window or opening or flush installed inside the window or opening aperture. Because side channel shades are fully enclosed on the sides, there are no cords, cables, cleats or visible wires to take away from the sleek, modern finish of the shades.
Our side channel shades can be custom-made to suit most sized windows and apertures up to 5 metres wide and can support a drop of up to 4m.
There are plenty of options to ensure you get the perfect shades for your home or business.
Deep Side Channel.
A deep side channel means the fabric is recessed farther into the channel which increases privacy, light, and heat control.
Powder Coated Side Channels and Headbox.
You can powder coat your side channels and headbox in almost colour to perfectly suit your home. Our powder coated finish is durable to withstand the harsh Australian conditions.
Base Locking Points
We have multiple options to secure your shades when fully dropped including a counter-weight or locking points.
Variable Drop Locking Points.
We can fit your side channel shades with variable locking points which allow you to secure your shades at multiple heights.
Our shades can be controlled by remote, crank, or springs; the choice is yours.
Remote controlled shades rely on a motor to extend or retract. You can set the precise point where you want to extend your shades to provide your guests with year-round comfort. Being motor-driven, your shades will always look great as the motor keeps the material taut.
We can hook your shades into an existing home automation system or help you with selecting a new system. Home automation gives you full control over your shades at all times without any cranks, handles, pulleys, or wires.
You can even program your shades to rise and fall at certain times of the day and depending on the conditions and the position of the sun.
You could also consider the easy-to-use, unobtrusive manual crank gears which come with a removable handle for security and safety, or the spring-loaded option. Spring-loaded shades are a clean, no-fuss solution that is perfect for any application.
The Pazazz Side Channel Outdoor Blind is a cost-effective and practical shade solution that will provide excellent shade and ventilation control while keeping the elements at bay, as both sides are held securely by side channels.
A simple twist of the bottom rail allows you to pull the shades up and down. A simple twist back and the blind is locked in position.
