New Addition to Betta In House Collection



We are pleased to introduce new Cool Blind screen fabric into our In House Collection.

COOL Blind is designed to meet the energy saving requirements of modern environmentally responsible building design, while still remaining stylish for any home or office.

Independent testing shows after being in direct sunlight for 3 hours, the radiant temperature of COOL BLIND was measured at 29.5 degrees Celsius, while a regular PVC screen was 26% higher at 37.2 degrees.

This lighter weight sunscreen makes it ideal to operate large sized blinds.

You will love having the convenience of Four Families swatches in the In House folder


KATOOMBA was inspired by a photographic trip to the Blue Mountains. The different layers of mountain ranges at dawn's first light, influenced the soft undulating horizontal design. 

The weave structure, with its mix of matte and bright yarns bring the pattern to life. The technical achievement with this unique pattern was made possible with newly installed Jacquard looms in Asia. The mill used is the only one who could achieve the look with the right mix of yarns.


Zaru Decorative Screen 3% - If you are looking for a sunscreen with a difference, Zaru's 2 colour yarn cross-dyed effect is a brilliant decorative choice.

Both of the above fabrics are Australian designed. Like Betta Blinds and Awnings, Four Families is 100% Australian owned.
