blinds & louvres
Clear outdoor PVC blinds, also known as café blinds, allow you to appreciate the garden view, while blocking draughts and rain. Off-the-shelf blinds, operated by a rope pulley, are the most inexpensive option. You can also order custom-made blinds with rope pulleys, and more expensive versions with manually cranked geared screens on stainless-steel guide wires, or motorised blinds. Adjustable external louvres are a more permanent option. These can be tilted to allow breezes and light into a space, and closed for privacy and draught control. Custom-made from steel or powder-coated aluminium, they can be fixed vertically or horizontally to create a sharp modern ambience, and are popular for providing privacy on the sides of patios or balconies adjoining neighbours.
