What should you expect when we install your outdoor blinds?
Australian Outdoor Living’s range of outdoor blinds are a popular home improvement for many Australians.
In this article, we’ll take you through the types of outdoor blinds in our range, as well what you can expect throughout the installation process.
The Classic system is the traditional method of blinds operation, utilising an articulated crank rod that allows to raise and lower your blinds.
Our range of SmartTrack outdoor blinds is the latest in blinds innovation. Choose from a selection of three ways to operate your blinds.
The SmartTrack Signature series is simple, easy to use and practical. Its articulated crank rod not only ensures a smooth operation, but also eliminates the need for unsightly levers and pulleys.
This increases the overall aesthetic of the blind and reduces the amount of tripping hazards in your outdoor area.
The SmartTrack Power series offers all the benefits of the Signature series, with the added bonus of an electrical component.
Operate the Power series via an easy-to-use remote and control your blinds from the comfort of your seat.
The SmartTrack Connect series is truly the pinnacle in outdoor blinds technology. With an optional Wi-Fi Bridge, the SmartTrack Connect series is a fully automated blind operation system.
Control your blinds via the smartphone app to manage them from any location with internet access.
Experience the best in outdoor blind technology with the in-built Smart Home integration. You can also set up voice control via Google Home or Amazon Alexa and control your blinds, your way.
Should I get shade blinds or transparent blinds?
If you opt for clear or tinted cafe blinds, you’ll be limited to the Classic operation system; but you can choose whichever system you like if you go for the shade blinds.
Thanks to those options, it’s easier than ever to purchase a brand new set of outdoor blinds that will suit you, your family and your lifestyle.
But once you’ve sat down with our consultant and chosen your blinds, what happens next? Well, it’s time for the installation process to begin.
In this post we give you a guide of what to expect when installing outdoor blinds.
How long will it take to install outdoor blinds?
The installation time for outdoor blinds can be dependent on a number of factors.
We generally advise customers that installation takes between four to six weeks from the initial consultation.
The reason we can give you this time frame is because we manufacture our blinds right here in Australia.
Your geographical location is the biggest factor in determining how long your installation will take, therefore we urge you to get into contact with your local branch for more information.
Unfortunately we can’t control Mother Nature, so extreme weather conditions can be a reason for any unexpected delays.
How much will my outdoor blinds cost?
When you first contact us we’ll organise a time that suits you to visit you in your home.
In this consultation we will discuss exactly what you’re after, then measure the area and prepare an accurate quote based on your personal preference.
As a result of this personalised service we are unable to provide an accurate quote without first sitting down with you and discussing exactly what you want.
We do this to ensure complete honesty and clarity throughout the whole process.
At Australian Outdoor Living we’re not in the business of giving out a quote then adding hidden costs later on.
It is due to this reason that we offer a free measure and quote; so we can determine what exactly it is you need from us, and how we can deliver the perfect outdoor solution to go with your home.
We make the installation process easy!

After working with you to pick the design, colour and operation system, we’ll then figure out a convenient time for installation that suits you and your family.
Throughout the installation process, a production manager will constantly be in touch; organising convenient times for installation and check measure visits.
They will also be in close contact should you have any questions or queries regarding the project. We’re always just a phone call or email away!
