Awnings Sunshine Coast
We offer an extensive selection of awnings for both residential and commercial clients throughout the Sunshine Coast.
All of our products are made locally for quality assurance.
Awnings or outdoor blinds add value to any home. They are an attractive, practical and affordable way to extend your outdoor entertainment areas and shade your windows from the elements. Our awnings can also increase your home’s energy efficiency.
In summer awnings prevent sun glare, and block the sun’s rays from your windows, helping your home to stay cooler and saving you money on power costs.
Reducing the amount of sunlight that enters your home can also help prevent damage to furnishings and floor coverings.
In winter, they help to cut your heating costs by reducing drafts and retaining warmth.
Protect your windows and keep your property insulated with a high-quality awning from iQ Shutters.

More than just sun protection
If you are thinking about making use of an awning shade in order to protect the outdoor space from sunlight, then you might be interested to hear that they can do more than just cover the harsh rays of the sun. In fact, they can offer protection in a variety of different weathers, including rain or harsh wind. There is a reason that they have become so popular, because they offer much more than just a shade.
Fit them almost anywhere
In the past, homeowners were unable to use shade sail covers because their home was not able to support such a large covering all year round. This is where retractable patio covers are the ideal solution, because they can be much more versatile, allowing you to fit them into smaller spaces.
Easy to fit
The style of retractable shade sails also means that they are available with a variety of attachment brackets, allowing you to install them into a broad variety of windows, including angled or circular windows. In fact, you can fit them to just about any overhead structure. IQ Shutters Sunshine Coast can help you to find the perfect bracket for your home.
Covering board spaces
Another advantage to using more modern retractable cover styles is that you can extend them beyond shade of the window, using them to cover external living spaces, including outdoor home offices. Some retractable awning styles can be as much as 18 meters across, and five meters from your wall. This allows you to go further and get better protection for your home.
