How Outdoor Blinds Can Benefit You This Winter

Entertaining in your outdoor home patio or café setting shouldn’t have to stop just because winter has arrived! Fire pits and patio heaters can be used to cosy up your outside spot but there is another solution homeowners and businesses are using to keep the cold out. The answer? Outdoor blinds!

Installing clear PVC blinds greatly improves the aesthetics of your residential or commercial property. In addition, they help to keep your outside entertaining space well-insulated no matter the weather. Keep reading to find out exactly how outdoor blinds installation can benefit you this winter.

How Outdoor Blinds Can Benefit You This Winter

Insulation: Keeping the Heat Inside

Outdoor blinds work well for insulating your patio or entertainment area. Installing Ziptrak blinds has additional benefits during the winter months. Selecting top-grade outdoor blinds not only keeps the warmth in but prevents the cool air from entering the area. PVC outdoor blinds are very helpful for retaining heat during the cooler months.

By keeping the warmth inside with outdoor blinds, you can also save on high energy bills by reducing the use of patio heaters.

Wind Protection: Keeping Out the Cold

Cold winds make being outdoors extremely unpleasant. Installing strong and durable outdoor blinds will help keep the cold air from entering your outside living or seating space.

The following are the key features to ensuring you outdoor blinds provide the best wind and sleet protection:

  • Correct sizing: Getting the right dimensions for your blinds ensures a tight fit for your outside structure.
  • Strong, heavy-duty aluminium channels and bottom bars: Sturdy aluminium tracks and bottom bars make it easier to close the blinds tightly, preventing gaps for cold air to get through.
  • Reinforced edging: This gives extra strength while stopping the blinds from flapping in strong winds.
  • Weather Seals: Found at the bottom of the blinds, these extensions prevent cold air from getting inside.
  • Motorised automation: Operating your outdoor blinds with a remote control saves you the hassles of having to open or close them manually. At the touch of the button, you can close the blinds when the weather turns nasty.

Using professionals to install your outdoor blinds will ensure you get all the above-mentioned features.

Privacy: Creating Ambiance

Whether it’s winter or summer, some privacy is appreciated when entertaining guests on your home patio or creating an intimate atmosphere in your bistro outside spot. Both mesh and tinted PVC outdoor blinds prevent people from outside looking in.

Installing outdoor privacy blinds allows you to create ambiance, both daytime and at night. There’s no need to stress about nosy neighbours or curious pedestrians anymore!

Transparency: Enjoying the View

Installing clear PVC or low-density mesh outdoor blinds allows you to enjoy the landscape outside. Transparent blinds give you the protection you need from the harsh winter weather while still letting you see your beautiful garden or stunning views of the hills from your eatery. They also let in the sunshine, adding extra warmth and cheer to your enclosed outdoor entertainment space.

Whether you’re installing bistro or Ziptrak blinds, opting for clear PVC will give you the transparency you want when you have a beautiful view to offer!

Improved Aesthetics: Enhancing Your Outside Entertainment Space

Transforming your home patio or café outside seating place with outdoor blinds adds appeal to your property especially during the drab winter months. Various designs such as Ziptrak, café or custom outdoor blinds, go a long way to improving the aesthetics of your outside spot. 

Transforming your outside living space is easy with customisable outdoor blinds. You get to choose the colours, densities, mesh or PVC and whether you want motorised or hand-operated features.

UV Protection: Preventing Harmful Sun Rays Exposure

Despite the cooler weather, you still risk skin damage when outdoors and exposed to harmful UV rays. Sunscreen mesh and PVC blinds can offer anything between 93% and 99% UV protection, keeping you and your guests or customers safe from the harsh sun rays.

Installing outdoor blinds also protects your furniture and floor covering from sunlight exposure during the winter months. They’ll last much longer!

Maintenance: Easy to Clean and Maintain

During the winter months, there’s more dirty rains and mud to contend with. This means more cleaning and washing of your outdoor living space. But with top-quality outdoor blinds, maintenance is simple. PVC blinds can be hosed down to get rid of the layers of dirt before washing with a soft bristle brush and soap. Leave to dry completely before rolling up.

Final Thoughts

The main benefit of installing outdoor blinds is keeping the warmth in during the cold, winter months. It also means more energy savings for you as you reduce the need to use patio heaters for heating your outdoor space.

What our customers say

Highly recommend All Weather Blinds! Very competitive prices, so easy to communicate with from the office staff who follows through with enquiries to installers. My install was over a year ago and had a power outage. The blind would only stop 3/4 of the way down. They talked me through how to fix it over the phone, were so patient and in a few minutes it was fixed. Thanks for looking after your customers.
