‘Very Smart’

External Roof Blind

Since the companies inception over 30 years ago, Caribbean Blinds has been dedicated purely to the field of external shading, so it’s fair to say we are truly experts in the field. Many clients who contact us for external shading have been told by local companies that it is not possible to install external blinds in their application, particular when it comes to glass roofs, however, with experience comes knowledge and ultimately an ability to do projects that others simply cannot. 

Glass roofs whether a lean to conservatory roof or skylight are relatively easy to install external blinds to, in fact, they are installed in the same timeframe as a patio awning. However, working above a glass roof has certain safety issues and puts many companies off who are worried about breaking the glass especially when fixing through the glazing bars. They therefore claim blinds cannot be installed externally on the roofs and recommend to go for interior blinds (which they offer) because it is simply easier for them, despite not being the right solution.

This is a great example of the advantages of dealing with a company who specialise in the field, as the Durneas from Watford discovered when they wanted an external roof blind:

“Our new blinds look very smart and we're waiting now for the sun to come out to start using them. We are very pleased with the whole technical solution, especially after being told by other suppliers that it is not possible to install any kind of external blinds to that roof! Their advice was to go for usual inside blinds, which was not what we wanted.”

They know what we are talking about and how to provide the solution you desire. This applies not just to external shading of course, but every industry. But as the only company dedicated to external shading in the UK, you’re guaranteed sound, honest, expert advice from us and most importantly the right solution for your application, expertly made and installed.
