Should I buy PVC or Sunscreen mesh blinds?
A: This depends on the type of protection you are looking for. If you want to block wind and maintain the temperature in your outdoor living space, whilst ensuring a clear view outside, PVC blinds are the best option. If you prefer to have some airflow, but primarily block sun and glare, then shade materials will be most effective. Sunscreen mesh materials can also block a high degree of wind and rain (up to about 96%), whilst also somewhat maintaining the temperature within your space. Sunscreen mesh fabrics provide privacy during the day, allowing you to see outside but restrict the view into the outdoor area. At night, the opposite occurs; you won’t be able to see beyond the fabric, whilst someone standing outside will clearly be able to see in if you have a light on within your outdoor area. Motorisation is only recommended for SunScreen mesh blinds, not clear PVC.
I want to leave my window open but have the blind down; do you have a solution?
The Ziptrak® Interior blind is the perfect solution for windows that have openings to allow fresh air to enter your home. Since the blind material is secured within a track, it won’t rattle or damage itself. Allow air to enter the room but don’t sacrifice your privacy; simply leave a small opening at the bottom of the blind to encourage air flow. With block out blind materials, the gap needs to be larger, depending on how windy it is outside. With other materials which allow some degree of air to pass through the material, as long as it is not extremely windy outside, you should be able to completely close the blind; providing privacy and insect proof screening, whilst allowing airflow. Your Ziptrak® Interior blind can replace a fly screen, providing seamless views whilst the window is closed, and then within seconds, after opening the window and lowering the blind, you have airflow and protection from insects.
