The sales of External Window Blinds have seen a significant increase over the years and it’s not going to slow down anytime soon. Traditional curtains have seen a decline and they now make up less than half of the market as oppose to blinds which now contribute one third of the £1.4 billion marketplace. The influence of Grand Designs and other home renovation shows has seen more and more modern buildings incorporate External Blinds into their designs and for good reason.

The aesthetic clean lines and solar protecting properties makes outdoor blinds the desirable choice in contemporary homes. Energy efficiency has become a priority and external blinds are an effective solution in combating solar heat gain and heat loss. High quality exterior blinds have been specially engineered with robust materials to be more resilient to weather conditions, especially the sun. The fabric material used features UV properties that help to deflect the harmful solar rays. By applying protection to the exterior this will keep the glass cool and reduce the internal temperature which will save you using energy on appliances such as fans and air conditioning systems. During the colder seasons the outdoor electric blinds will keep the wind from making contact with the glazing to prevent heat loss. These systems may be more costly than your average curtains but they are a long term household investment that will guarantee to pay off.

Not only are exterior blinds becoming the norm in residential properties but they are also starting to become more common in office buildings due to the glare elimination and temperature regulation. These are two factors which can boost the productivity of employees, something companies do not want to disregard.
