Outdoor Roller Blinds in the Gold Coast
You may already know that the best place to buy roller blinds on the Gold Coast is Sheerview Window Furnishings. What you may not have guessed, is that we also have a good selection of outdoor roller blinds.
People don’t normally tend to think of using blinds on the outside of their windows, but there are some good reasons to consider it. Of course you can’t use just any old roller blinds. You have to use roller blinds that are specially designed for outdoor use.
Outdoor roller blinds are more correctly a type of awning. They help to block solar radiation before it reaches the window, which means the glass absorbs less light, and thus stores and radiates less heat as a result.
The notable difference between an outdoor roller blind and a regular awning is that the roller blind is more opaque by design. The intention is to block even more light than an awning is normally able to do. Considering how effective awnings are in their purpose, this means roller blinds must be very effective indeed.
The exact effect of the outdoor roller blind is determined by multiple factors. One of these is the amount of distal offset between the roller blind and the window. Another is the angle the blind is designed to hang at when extended. The colour, thickness, and porosity of the material are also important.
Outdoor roller blinds aren’t just used for window coverings. They can also be used for protecting patio areas from rain, wind, and sunlight.
Maintaining outdoor roller blinds
Like all outdoor products, outdoor roller blinds need to be maintained properly to ensure they achieve maximum lifespan. Taking proper care will ensure your blinds continue functioning well and looking good.
One essential rule is to never retract the blinds when they are wet. If you do this, mold and algae could begin growing on the surface, and the smell will be unbearable. Always make sure you retract the blinds when they’re dry. If they’re wet, leave them unretracted until they have dried off.
Next, make a habit of regularly checking the roller mechanism to make sure spiders have not made a home in it. The cobwebs can be a nuisance and apart from looking unsightly, they can also catch leaves and bugs, which can further interfere with the normal operation of the device.
It can help to give the blinds and occasional scrub to wash off any surface dirt which may have accumulated. Dirt can lead to bacterial growth, and bacteria can produce unpleasant aromas, as well as being potentially a health hazard.
At least once every 12 months you should grease the bearings of the roller to help keep it working smoothly and reduce potential for corrosion.
Maintaining your outdoor roller blinds is actually quite easy. It’s really just a matter of common sense.
