Low Winter Sun

Winter, Sun, Cold, Season

With clearer skies and the days beginning to lengthen, many homes consisting of large expanses of vertical glazed elements such as bi-folding and sliding doors are now suffering from the low winter sunlight, which easily and directly penetrates through, causing excessive light (glare) and for heavily glazed rooms such as glass box extensions excessive heat build-up too. This in turns leads to many people drawing the curtains or blinds which blocks the view and spoils the enjoyment from the space as the outside has been blocked off.

External Roller Blinds, City View, Fabric

Often overlooked, External Roller Blinds, are the perfect shading solution to eliminate glare. Thanks to the specially woven mesh fabrics featured on them bright light is diffused and the view to the outside is maintained. Additionally when the warmer weather arrives they provide the perfect barrier against unwanted solar heat gain as they physically stop the suns near infra-red radiation even reaching the glazing.

By combining our blinds with a clever light sensor, they will automatically deploy when bright light strikes, regulating the sun to ensure a comfortable indoor environment, without you even having to lift a finger. Furthermore by linking them into our Tahoma SmartHub you can create agendas and scenarios for your blinds to automatically work against, specific to you and your properties need.

It’s time to live smarter with a Caribbean Blinds external shading system. Find out more by contacting a member of our team today on 0344 800 1947 or alternatively you can complete our quick enquiry form here.
