Hi, I have more of a suggestion than a question. I have had a number of orders for Shutters, and all have been fantastic, and they look GREAT. However my suggestions would be, that for long drop shutters during delivery the frames should not be joined at the corners with the Hoffman keys inserted. During transport the larger packing boxes flex and break out the Hoffman keys. Luckily with mine the Hoffman keys had just enough bite to hold the frame until I screwed the frame in. Just a thought for Quality Control. Cheers John
Great to hear from you, and we're so glad to hear you love your plantation shutters!
Thanks for your suggestion. We are always looking for ways to improve the packaging and help our customers achieve the best outcome possible.
It does help to keep the components for a single panel in one box, but I totally understand your point and the last thing anybody wants is for the shutter to arrive damaged.
I will work with the shutter team and packaging company to see how we can improve on this.
Great products and service. I installed two motorised blinds and trying to pair to remote. Following youtube instructions which are excellent. However after selecting a channel on the remote and holding down P1 on blind motor I get the exact response from motor as per instructions. blind drives down/up stops and beeps. When I then press and hold the stop button to pair the remote to channel one I get no response at all. Same as for blind 2...no response except the initial response from the motor after holding down P1.
What could be the issue. Could it be the remote? Are the motors relying on wifi which the modem is approx 15-20 metres away. Or am I doing something wrong.
All sorted....Tried everything so looked up the website who manufactures the remote. Updated (instructions online) the mode of the remote and after that it started talking to the blind motor.
Glad you got it sorted Kevin. If you eve have any queries, please email us at email@example.com, and we'll get back to you. Thanks & have a great evening, iseekblinds
Hi iseekblinds, a question regarding your pelmets for roller blinds. Do you have options for pelmets with fabric look instead of metal? I would like the pelmet to match the fabric of the blind itself.
On your website, I see only black, white and anodised as the three choices.
Hello, thank you for your enquiry. At this stage we only sell the Pelmet 95 - made from aluminium. However we have assisted a number of customers where we have supplied them with the matching roller blind fabric and they have commissioned a 3rd party to make their pelmets. If you would like to proceed down this path, please call the office to discuss the quantity of fabric you would require - 1300 664 257.

Yes we do Pelmets (for Roller blinds) Check out the Pelmet 95 here. https://www.iseekblinds.com.au/roller-blinds-pelmets.html Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.

Hi all, we are looking at purchasing the plantation shutters and want to know how much DIY has saved people in terms of dollars? We oils also like to know the price difference between the PVC express & the wood option? thanks in advance. Yes, we intend to measure for a quote as well.
Hi Erin, there are always additional costs to have a person come out to your house to do a measure and quote - this could be anywhere from $250 + depending on who you are dealing with. Regarding installation it can be approx $70 per panel or more for an installer to come out to your house to install. Again this depends on who you are dealing with and if they 'include' the cost into your overall price. All of those costs can be avoided by simply following the instructions provided on our website on how to measure and install your products and getting your DIY on ! In addition iseekblinds strives to provide the highest quality products at the most competitive prices. Both the Express PVC and Basswoods are currently $299 per square metre. Hope this answers your question? Jump onto the website and do a Quick Quote to get a better idea.
Do you have ziptrack outdoor blinds?
Hi Ronald, Thank you for your enquiry. iseekblinds doesn't currently supply any outdoor blinds/products. We supply window coverings for internal uses only at this stage.
We are thinking of plantation shutters for our whole house. Of the two products, which is the most durable and hard wearing, i.e won't mark, chip and easy clean. I am after a vivid white.
Hi, I am not sure I fully understand your question. We have vivid white basswood plantation shutters and have had them since July. They still look as good as the day we installed them. Easy to clean and so far no chips or marks. It would depend on how you treat them to determine how easy they are to chip and mark. We have visiting grandchildren and a bouncing standard poodle and they are still in perfect condition. I can't recommend this product enough and iseekblinds.com.au are so easy to deal with and can't help enough with any question you have to ask.
HI RIP66, thanks for your questions, Of our two shutters on the site our express range is the most hard wearing, its an extruded blade so it doesn't have the softness of our timber plantation shutters, Both have there own features and benefits and part of the consideration is the rooms they will be installed, also the size of the windows. Some PVC products don't go past 750mm wide so you end up having too many panels in each window which just clutters the window and you loose your view and feeling of openness and space. Generally you don't know this until its two late and the shutters are being installed
Be careful what you buy, and as always do your research, the devil is always in the detail as they say.
When you are ready email me some photos of the windows with the sizes then call me so we can discuss and i can guide you through, its never hard to complete just nice when i can make sure you are on the right track (with good information).
Good luck, Michael Gubby iseekblinds.com.au
Anybody know is it easy to install double blinds on their own?
My husband had no trouble at all. On his own. Needed a drill I think but he is very happy with them.
I had no problems at all you only need a drill and screw driver. I laid them out on the floor and made sure that the shutters sat in the frame if they were the large ones that needed to be set up otherwise I placed them into the window frame direct. Iseekblinds are only too happy to help you if you have any problems or queries.

Hi. I was so impressed with the reviews on this company and now find that they are in Victoria. Does anyone know of a comparable company in Sydney for plantation shutters? I've been trying to find reviews on Peter Myer Blinds but considering it is such a long established company I'm surprised I can't find one review. Perhaps no news is good news in this case.
