Pleated Blinds are probably the most popular alternative
for Roof and Window Blinds today. They are available in many different
colours / patterns
and are easy to maintain. They can also be "automated" if you
like the idea of "remotely" operating the blinds. Pleated
blinds can also have special SOLAR finishes for even better performance.
is a feature we strongly recommend.
Roman Blinds which are usually made
with "Original French Pinoleum" are
arguably the most traditional blinds alternative. Composed of thin strips
of woven wood, Pinoleum has been manufactured in France for over 100
years. Its style compliments the traditional conservatory furniture materials
of Rattan and Wicker. Roman Blinds can also be "automated" if
you like the idea of "remotely" operating the blinds.
Blinds can be produced in many different fabrics but the
most popular for Conservatory Blinds feature special SOLAR reflective
backing. The theory is that the sunlight literally "bounces" back
of the blinds, giving really effective control over temperature and glare.
Whilst aesthetically speaking these blinds are perhaps not the "best
looking" alternative in most peoples minds, there is not much
doubt that they do provide some of the highest degrees of performance
of managing heat build up and glare.
DIY Drapes or Shutters. As an alternative to professionally installed
Sunblinds you can consider installing your own drapes using a variety
of fabrics. Whilst this may not be as complete a solution as calling
in the professionals they can be quite effective at softening the light
and cooling the atmosphere. Another alternative is to hang soft muslin
at the windows to diffuse the light. Tall timber shutters can be bought
at most DIY stores and positioned free standing in order to reduce glare
coming through the windows. (Allowing you to watch TV etc) Alternatively
smaller shutters can be fixed to the windows externally. (Requires the
services of a competent carpenter).
