Geared Roller Brisbane
Why you should be adding geared roller blinds to your Brisbane property
Looking for a versatile, affordable, and easy-to-use shade system?
Geared roller blinds, or drop-down blinds, are perfect for enclosing your home’s deck or patio area to seamlessly blend the inside and outside. Offering modern living advantages, the creative installation means no need for bulky tracks or large spaces.
At FKR Group, we custom design blinds and shutters to suit your space and with a wide array of fabrics and colours you’re in control whether you want to block the line of sight from the neighbours or add a splash of colour to suit the natural stone in your backyard. As a comprehensive outdoor shading solution, geared roller blinds are impossible to beat.
With innovative technology allowing for multiple lock-off heights, your new blinds can be lowered and raised to suit your needs. Keen to let in extra sunlight while you eat outside? Not a problem. Looking to lower the blinds during the harsh midday sun? You’re in control. With a bottom bar (fusion rail) these affordable home improvement upgrades are highly suited to narrow spaces but look equally striking surrounding the facade of your home or outdoor entertainment space.

How are geared roller blinds installed?
We understand that your home is your sanctuary. That’s why we endeavor to keep disruption to a minimum across all installation projects. There is a range of possible installation options available for this creative, innovative roller blind that come with either stainless steel brackets or powder-coated brackets. Your geared roller blind may be fitted in between posts on the inside or outside of your property, or fitted behind a bulkhead for an aesthetically pleasing finish.
Will my geared roller blind stand up to the elements?
Yes. All of our blinds and products are custom-made with the highest-quality materials and craftsmanship. The result is a blind that offers UV protection for your verandah, patio, or alfresco area. You’ll also enjoy protection against the wind without preventing crucial air circulation and ventilation. That’s how FKR Group protects your Brisbane home or business from the elements all year round.
Are geared roller blinds difficult to open and close?
Not at all. The precision engineering of our 7:1 ratio gearbox allows for the biggest blinds to be rolled up or lowered with ease. Thanks to a removable handle you’re also enjoying a 100% child-safe product with no cables or chains to pose a safety risk. That’s how you enjoy your time knowing you’ve got privacy, protection against the elements, and a safe space for curious little hands.
Can I install my own outdoor blinds?
In theory yes – but you risk installation mistakes and faults that leave your new blinds inefficient against the elements, and at risk of malfunction. What looks like a quick and cheap DIY installation project can quickly become an expensive nightmare when you need to pull your geared blinds down and start over.
