External shading for lean-to style conservatory roofs

Conservatories remain a popular addition to homes around the countries, providing additional indoor living space but with a clear view and connection to the garden. With all that glazing, however, conservatories are often the least used room in the home, as they are too hot in the Summer, too cold in the Winter and too bright all year round.

With the majority of the suns solar radiation entering through the roof, blinds mounted outside to the top of the roof glazing are the most effective way to restore the indoor temperature, as they prevent shortwave radiation reaching the glazing, eliminating excessive solar heat gain. Furthermore, thanks to our popular Twilight mesh fabric utilised on them, the view to the outside is maintained with bright light diffused through the perforated fabric structure, eliminating glare internally and also protecting furnishings from bleaching thanks to a high UV protection factor.

The built-in tensioning system means external roof blinds remain taut at every position and can be used partially or fully open depending on the time of year and how much solar radiation you want to prevent whilst the fabric runs within the U shaped side guides ensuring no annoying light leakage. An air gap between the underside of the side guides and conservatory roof eliminates any heat build-up between the two, with warm air simply ventilating away.

For large lean-to roofs, including verandas, roof blinds can be linked together using a twin guide, with each blind able to operate independently of each other for optimum control over shade to the indoor space.

External Blind Reviews

The service was excellent

We are really happy with the blind and the service was excellent from quote to fitting. I would definitely recommend you.

Holmes - Twickenham

Very impressive

Initial reaction is that the process and product have both been excellent. The fitters were very good, as were you… so far very impressive, and I would be happy to recommend you.

Wilkinson - East Molesey

An absolute pleasure

I just wanted to say that your service men were an absolute pleasure to deal with today! They are excellent ambassadors for Caribbean Blinds.

Reilly - Twickenham

The blind is incredible

I thought I would wait a little while to see how the blind was functioning before I contacted you again but I would just like to say the external roof blind has transformed the way we use our room. The space would have been virtually unusable over this summer but the heat reduction on using the blind is incredible. I am now thinking of other areas in the house that would benefit from external shading.

Robinson - Walton On Thames

The two fitters were fantastic

We are extremely pleased with both the blinds and the service. The two fitters were fantastic and we cannot wait for our awning now!

Taylor - Teddington

Really happy with the blind

Really happy with the blind, functions perfectly and the installers were great.

Rayner - St. Neots

Fantastic job

The team were very professional, did a great job and the product is lovely, really good quality. The best thing is that it looks like it has always been there, which helps fussy self-builders like us!

Fantastic job, thank you.

Cope - Staines

How pleased we are

Just to say how pleased we are with the blinds, although we have not had a chance to use them properly yet (and I suspect it will too cold for the next few days!).

Johnson - Egham

Great, professional and polite

I would like to say that from initial enquiry to completion of the job we have been very happy with the communications received and all subsequent questions answered to our satisfaction. Rachel was very prompt getting back to me in the early stages and the installation went well last Monday. The guys were great, professional and polite. We won’t know how effective the blind will be for a few months yet, but we are confident that we will not be experiencing 30-degree temperatures in our lounge again! We are happy to recommend your company to friends and family.
