Conservatory Blinds starts 20% spring/summer sale
the correct kind of conservatory blind raises a number of complex issues which
do not normally apply to blinds elsewhere in the house. Conservatory blinds
are also more costly especially in large structures so it pays
to make the correct choice in order to avoid the buyerīs remorse!
In this article we will be focusing on the key issues.
It might be obvious but sometimes conservatory owners overlook the most common questions which
are simply, "Why do I need conservatory blinds" Do I even want them at all? And if I
install them will they do what I need them to do. Ask yourself,
"Do I know what I want them to achieve?" If your answer is, "To
keep the sun out" Take a look at the wider picture.
Conservatory Blinds - What can they
Reflect huge amounts of solar heat. South facing conservatories
or those on bungalows where there is no top storey to offer shade
Dissipate the excesses of solar radiation. Structures that face
all directions but north usually need blinds that tackle the issue
3. Reduce uncomfortable areas
of direct sunlight. A conservatory that has direct sun light is
likely to have uncomfortable levels of heat even in winter on
4. Protects furniture and plants
5. Provides privacy and protection
Gives the conservatory thermal insulation. In winter even a double
glazed conservatory looses lots of heat as it radiates through
the glass on those dark evenings. Blinds reduce radiated heat
7. Resistance to dust, moisture
and insects especially in rural areas.
Reflects light back to the conservatory on dark cold evenings.
Conservatory lighting often struggles to illuminate a conservatory
without blinds as the light radiates outwards into the night instead
of returning into the conservatory.
Roller Blinds Vs Pleated Blinds
these kinds of conservatory blinds have been around for a while so both can
be said to look traditional yet both can be contemporary, this
is to do with your choice of fabric. For roof blinds the main drawback with roller blinds is that when the blind is retracted the collection
of dust that inevitably builds up gets transferred onto the front
side of the fabric as the roller rolls the clean face on the dirt.
With pleated blinds all dirt is kept on the protected side of the
conservatory blind. Conservatories attract a lot of insects
in the summer when doors and windows are open this should to be
taken seriously rather than treated as a īsmall issueī
Most pleated conservatory blinds can be operated by an extension
pole and in most cases it is unnecessary to have lots of control
cords. This is not the case with roller blinds.
Roller conservatory blinds offer no particular advantage over
pleated blinds and are usually picked for their appearance.
