Wooden pergolas are a popular feature in many gardens all across the United Kingdom. The traditional and elegant style fits in well with most landscapes as they are versatile in their use. When these structures are co-ordinated with plants then they are sometimes used as decorative archways for garden paths, this can create a very aesthetic feature to the garden. Most often they are the main focal point of the external space, used as an outdoor living area where people can relax under.
Its design is made up of a number of wooden cross beams interlinking with gaps between to create a strong and stable structure. The construction allows the space to filter free flowing air and let the sun pass through so that you can bask comfortably, but what happens when the heat gets too intense? If you do not have decorative plant covering the roof to provide shading then it could leave your outdoor living space unbearable to be in and most importantly it could leave you vulnerable to skin damaging solar rays.
How do you solve an issue like this without taking away the pergola that you have invested in? At Caribbean Blinds we are often called in to asses and apply a SMART shading solution to be fixed on to existing structures to help provide adequate shading at the touch of a button. By safely fixing brackets to the top of the framework we are able to mount our sophisticated Cayman Roof Blind that can span to a maximum of 5 metres in width, enough to cover most pergola designs. If low level sunlight is causing an issue we also have a solution for that too, our streamline Antiguan External Roller Blind has been specially designed to deflect solar heat and with the right choice of fabric you can even retain your scenic views whilst being protected.
