Outdoor Collection


LIS are the external fixture specialist, from Queensland’s rural stations to the coast, we supply and install state wide.

We are all experiencing summers that are getting hotter and longer and require an emphasis on building design that incorporates external sun shading. The shading of windows and glazed openings are most effectively achieved with external shading solutions. Stopping the sun’s rays before they hit the glass will lower energy consumption and create a natural comfort level inside. A modern façade requires a modern solution. With large, glazed areas there are effective solutions available. Shading structures with retractable weather protective roofs and side screen can enhance outdoor living areas, allowing you to enjoy your entertaining area all year round, with a range of state-of-the-art heaters for those cooler months. Each of our systems are available to be retro fitted.

Living in Shade is a local Sunshine Coast company that understands the weather conditions we experience, and prides itself in only supplying quality products and first-class service. We offer professional advice, we install our own products and have great after sales service to all our customers from the extensive knowledge of our building professionals within the company.
