Heatwave Is Approaching The UK With Highs Of 35°C

Patio Awning Summer

From today onwards we are expecting the arrival of an 'insane Spanish plume' that will bring soaring temperatures of up to 35°C for two weeks to the UK. This predicted weather will put July's warm temperatures firmly in the shade and is more than likely to surpass this year's previous record of 33.5°C which was recorded in Oxfordshire on July 19th. 

The Weather Outlook described this impending weather as the 'best spell of the Summer' with Met Office spokesman Graham Madge saying we can expect 'lows of 30s for southern England by Tuesday and Wednesday.' Following a slightly disappointing Summer, with mid-July's heatwave only lasting a few days, this news will be warmly welcomed by Brits looking forward to making the most of the sunshine.

External Roof Blinds, Conservatory Awnings

Of course, with the arrival of this intense heat comes the demand to keep both ourselves and our property's cool, particularly those rooms that are exposed to direct sunlight during the course of the day. Rooms with roof lights or vast areas of glass, such as conservatories, tend to be the worst victim's of excessive heat due to the 'greenhouse effect' which causes temperatures to spiral. By physically blocking the sun's incoming solar radiation, our external roof blinds prevent unwanted solar heat gain, naturally cooling your indoor space, whilst also filtering bright light to eliminate glare. 

Established for almost 3 decades and having carried out thousands of installations across the country, as the UK's leading manufacturer of external solar control and sun protection products, there's nobody better placed than Caribbean Blinds to help you create a cool, comfortable home this Summer and during the impending heatwave.
