Our homes are our sanctuary to relax and unwind after a hard day’s work and it’s not nice to come back to a warm welcome that is going to leave you frustrated. External Shading is the most effective solution to reduce the internal temperature inside your home but first you need to understand why it happens before it happens so that you can be prepared and beat the heat.
Most homes consist of glazing to flood in light to the internal space but this glass is also a vulnerability when it comes to summer. Like the ‘greenhouse effect’ the light from the sun transfers through the glass as short wave radiation and then converts to long wave infrared heat rays which cannot escape back through the glazing, this then causes solar heat gain within the home making it intolerable. By applying External Roller Blinds or External Roof Blinds to the glazed areas of your property you are able to permanently block those harmful rays as the weatherproof robust fabric used in these shading systems are not transparent and venerable like glass. By deflecting the sun’s light from the exterior you are able to keep the glass cool and out of contact so that you can maintain the temperature within the home.
At Caribbean Blinds we have engineered our External Window Blinds with automated motor systems for efficiency and practicality. We have a range of SMART sensors which will enhance the Outdoor Roller Blinds so that you can get the most out of it during hot and humid days. By pairing a heat sensor to the External Blind mechanism you are able to give the blind the ability to automatically deploy the protective fabric as soon as it detects a certain amount of heat. We even have a Tahoma Home Hub which can be linked via a SMART phone so that you can control your Window Blinds from anywhere in the world, giving you full control of your automated blind system so that you can maintain the balance in your home. The days of a warm humid welcome at your home can be left in the past by applying Automated SMART External Blinds to your property.
