Company Profile


David Earl and Bernd Hansche created Blockout Shutters in 1989 when they noticed a gap in the market for Australian designed and manufactured roller shutters. With over 20 years of engineering and industrial design experience between them, David and Bernd set about creating a new range of roller shutter products that could withstand harsh Australian conditions while meeting the needs of the Australian lifestyle.

Today, Blockout Shutters is the market leader in design and innovation of premium quality roll formed aluminium roller shutters for the commercial and domestic markets. Our research and development team continually improve and expand our range, with some products exclusive to Blockout Shutters such as our Maxiview and Maxiblock range. 

Our company is customer focused, providing full service and support on all Blockout installations as well as servicing other brands.

Our principal office is located in Sydney’s Wetherill Park and we have Distributors throughout New South Wales, as well as Queensland, Western Australia, ACT and Victoria.

We install our shutters in all of the greater Sydney area including the Blue Mountains, Penrith, Blacktown, The Hills District, North Sydney, North Shore & Northern Beaches, Eastern Suburbs, Inner West, Canterbury Bankstown, South West Sydney and the Sutherland Shire.
