Weinor – New Semina Life Launch
We are very pleased to announce another new awning to hit the Australia market from Weinor. The New Semina Life awning is a full cassette awning but comes in at their most competitive price point so far! It comes in cheaper than the Opal and Cassita 2 awnings, while still utilising all the key selling features.
- 650cm wide x 400cm projection
- Valance plus in motorised and manual
- Drop forged parts
- Dyneema long life tape in the arms for quieter operation and less stretch than alternative cables or chains.
- 56 standard powder coat colours in high performance scratch resistant finish.
We are looking for new dealer in each state to get on-board with this quality brand. If you want a point of difference, professional marketing and sampling support, get in touch.
Point of Sale (POS) Professional displays are available. These take up very little floor space, have 4 motorised folding arm awnings with LED light and heaters all for only $10K plus delivery.

Please allow extra time for Manhattan, as we have to custom paint the pelmets and bottom rails. Swatches are available now.
We also have 50mm textile tape again! Perfect for that Retro look or to enhance the Manhattan Venetians! Available in 4 colours.
Online Order Forms
We will have these available to use in our members section VERY soon so remember to log in and fill in your details to get an approved account.
We constantly get asked what deduction we make off our blinds. Generally if you don’t ask and tell us it’s a recess size, we make them for you but we have had some customers who have been asking for this deduction sheet. This will be available in our members section of the website or simply ask Maha for a copy!
A great idea to contact all old customers who have ever bought Somfy RTS blinds from you. Now you can have all your Blinds and awnings operate off an App on your phone (iPhone or Android). The My-links can be easily retrofitted and allows customers to operate their blinds from anywhere via their mobile phone. These are available from only $620.00 RRP – your normal discounts apply.
New Price List Is Coming Soon
We are pleased to announce that our new prices on Roller blinds and Metal Venetians, as well as a number of other key products will be even more competitive with this new price update.
