Shade Factor has over 20 years of successful collaboration ranging from large commercial buildings to bespoke residential projects.  We come recommended by the most important people, our customers.

Inarc Architects

We have used Shade Factor for many years over numerous projects. An important consideration is reliable operation coupled with silent movement and robust fixings in high wind occurrences, Shade Factor blinds consistently met our expectations.

Wardle have used Shade Factor and Warema products for many years on our residential projects. The extensive range and opportunity for customisation for on our projects is valuable. On Limestone House we specified internal and external Warema products, it was important that the design language was carried through the whole house in relation to colours and textures.  We had a few irregular sized windows in this house which posed no issue for the team. Sun control is critical to a comfortable living environment and the products specified have to do their job well and consistently, we are confident in the products from Warema.

We have used Warema’s external venetian blinds before on many projects and we love how flexible they are, they offer a wide level of shading. The products themselves are very high quality, so we feel confident they will last and age well with the house.

Having worked with Shade Factor on a previous custom project we called upon their technical expertise during the design development process to come up with an operable screen concept.

Atelier Wagner

Shade Factor were able to provide a sun protection system that complimented the design strategy of creating a church that is welcoming and open to the community.  The metallic finished external venetian louvres fit neatly within painted plate steel shrouds, visually balanced against the craggy texture of the split face concrete block facade, and provide sun protection to the large north facing windows while facilitating their intended transparency.

Austin Maynard Architects

The Terrace House project had ambitious sustainability goals and restrictive compliance requirements, Shade Factor were able to provide products and services to satisfy both.

Ben Callery Architects

Shade Factor’s operable external blinds have been great at enabling us to design to bring the warming winter sun into our buildings when we want it, and to block out unwanted hot summer sun. Their diverse range of products have helped us deal with many challenging situations. Their service and team have always been very knowledgeable and helpful.

"Hi Graeme and Daniel,

I just wanted to let you know that we love the Warema blinds. They do exactly the job we wanted.

We moved into the house just before Christmas and we use the main blind (the double) every day it is sunny during the summer.

Thank you for working with us on this project."

N & C Johnson, NSW

"We were so pleased that Shade Factor could resolve our exterior metal Venetian blind replacement in a straightforward, timely and economic manner!  It was a such a slog dealing with companies who only had one method and an expensive one at that. Graeme came up with a workable solution and delivered on time and at a fair price. It was a happy experience - thanks team Shade Factor!"

We have just had the biggest storm in the 32 years we have been here and the blinds were not bothered at all by the very strong winds."

G Travers, VIC

"Very satisfied, guys turned up on time, polite and explained what they were doing. Work completed promptly and cleaned up at the end. All good."

A McLeay, VIC

"I have installed a total of 14 Shadefactor blinds around 3 sides of the house on 2 levels. It's been a significant investment but one which is repaid by the results. The blinds greatly enhance the aesthetics of the house as well as providing excellent control of light, heat and privacy throughout the year. The service and installation has always been highly professional and since the start the blinds have operated flawlessly. Thanks so much."

C Stephens, NSW

"We are thrilled with our external blinds and could not be happier with Shade Factor - from the initial consultation, advice and quotation, to the installation and end product, every aspect has been professional and completed to a very high standard.

I wish we had done this years ago!"

L Deguara, NSW

"I found the Shade Factor team, Graeme & Daniel & their installation technician Ben, at the Brookvale Office to be highly professional, courteous and very knowledgeable.

We had external venetians installed and they were of the highest quality. The blinds look amazing. 
I am a construction engineer and it was a pleasure to see good tradesmen in action. I will definitely use them again if I have a need in the future and will have no hesitation to recommend them."

C Johnson, NSW

"Ben and Gus were a great team and really took care of our roof and all the new fixtures around where they were working to ensure no damage occurred during the install.

We are very happy with the quality, look and feel of the product and the guys were very professional and competent so thankyou."
