External Blinds: Frequently Asked Questions
How much are external blinds?
Example prices: External Blinds Starting at £1896
What are external blinds?
External blinds, also known as outdoor blinds or exterior blinds, are window coverings that are installed on the outside of a building, typically on the windows or glass doors. They are designed to provide shade and reduce solar heat gain, while also offering privacy and protection from the elements such as wind, rain, and UV rays.
How are external blinds cleaned?
To ensure the longevity of your external blinds, it’s important to take proper care when cleaning them. Substances like bird droppings and tree sap can cause damage to the protective coating of the fabric, so it’s best to hose them off immediately.
For dried-on sticky debris, use a sponge and a mild soapy water solution to clean it off. Rinse the fabric thoroughly with clean water to ensure no soapy residue remains on the material. Allow the fabric to dry completely before retracting the external blind.
By following these cleaning guidelines, you can help maintain the quality and durability of your external blinds, ensuring they continue to function properly and look great for years to come.
Can external blinds be used during rain?
In addition to their primary function of controlling the sun’s rays, external roller blinds are also effective at providing shelter during rain showers when installed on exposed apertures like pergolas and verandas. The vertical fabric design of these blinds ensures that water does not pool on the material, making them a reliable choice for outdoor spaces in wet weather.
Our external roof blinds are also suitable for use during rain showers, provided they are set at an angle of 14 degrees or greater, which corresponds to a 25cm per meter depth to ensure water runs off and does not pool. Thanks to the exclusive TEXgard nanotech coating, rainwater runs off the fabric, taking surface dirt and debris with it to maintain a clean visual appearance.
If your external blinds get wet during use, it’s important to allow them to dry out completely before retracting them. If the fabric is rolled away wet due to persistent rain, the external blind should be opened up at the next opportunity to allow the fabric to properly dry out and minimize any rippling or waviness in the material. Consistent use of external blinds in rain showers can affect the look and appearance of the fabric, but regular cleaning and maintenance can help preserve their quality and durability over time.
