About us

Locally owned and operated shutter and blind company

Meet Stuart and Janice

Capital Shutters & Blinds is a family business, so you work with the owners Stuart and Janice Swan. We provide the high standards of service we would expect for ourselves, with timely communication and expert advice to offer enduring products and precise installation for a complete package. Every customer’s project is carefully managed to ensure complete satisfaction and exceptional results. In fact, we had Sante Fe shutters installed in our own home and loved the product and change effect so much, that we bought the business from Garth Escott, who established it in 2011.

Stuart is an engineer with over 20 years in the building industry, previously running his own successful engineered product and manufacturing business which included blinds, shutters and screens. Stuart consults, measures, quality checks and installs our products, so you can be assured that they will be a good fit.

Janice has worked as a soft furnishing consultant for one of Wellington’s most established blind and curtain businesses, has a background in design consultancy, is a professional organiser and project manager.

Together we have years of experience in renovating, building and window treatments, so we’ll help you make informed functionality and style decisions to enhance and add value your home, bach, commercial property or school, at a price to suit your budget.

If you are looking for cost effective, custom manufactured systems and want a trusted partner, we’re happy to come to your home or office with samples for a free consultation and no-obligation quote, call us on 021 143 5833.

We look forward to talking to you soon.

How long does manufacturing and installation take?

During our consultation, we can discuss timeframes specific to the products you select. In general, manufacturing and installation lead times are from the date of your order confirmation as follows:

  • New Zealand manufactured roller blinds, Venetian and Vertical louvre blinds, take three to four weeks.
  • Offshore manufactured Venetian, Thermacell and other blind styles are to be advised, as times vary between products.
  • Interior shutters are currently taking approximately twelve weeks, but timeframes can be advised during consultation.
  • Exterior aluminum shutters and screens, sails and wave shade manufacture times are to be advised, as times vary.
  • We provide you with an estimated installation timeframe upon order/quote acceptance. Once we have received and checked the product to ensure it is in perfect condition and to exact size, we’ll schedule a time and day to suit you.
