How our external roller blinds work

An outdoor roller blind is similar to an interior roller blind running down vertically in front of glass and open apertures. Fabric is wrapped around a rollertube which varies in diameter based on the width and drop of the blind, the greater the width/drop the larger the rollertube to ensure no sagging. The fabric is attached to a leadrail which contains an integral weight that subsequently ensures the fabric remains taut, under tension at every position, whether the blind is part or fully lowered.

The leadrail runs within guides to each side, ensuring it runs smoothly and perfectly square. Additionally, the fabric is locked within these side guides through a clever zip locking mechanism, which renders the blind windproof, stops any light shining between the edge of the material and side guides (as there is no gap) and also acts as an insect screen with fitted with our premium Twilight pearl material. The side guides which can be face or side fixed depending on the application, are in two parts, a rear and front section, concealing all the fixings.

A cassette casing around the rollertube provides a neat hideaway for the blind when not in use, concealing the fabric and minimising maintenance. The front of the headbox is hinged so it can easily be removed for any maintenance or remedial purposes. Heavy-duty lugs on the side of the headbox slot within the side guides, supporting it without the need for any physical fixing back to the façade.

Our external roller blinds are fitted with a tubular motor contained inside the rollertube, which allows for effortless operation from a handheld remote control or wire-free wall switch. Optional sensors create automatic blinds, that position themselves based on the ambient conditions for optimum thermal and visual comfort.

External Roller Blind Reviews

You exceeded our expectations!

We are delighted with the external blind. Your team was efficient, friendly and courteous. The blind looks great and has, already, made a huge difference to how we use our south-facing lounge. After a somewhat hesitant start, we have arrived at a really satisfactory outcome. Thank you very much. You exceeded our expectations!

Phil - Worcester

Very efficient and tidy

The install team were lovely again, very efficient and tidy. Thank you and the team so much….one very happy customer ready for the sunny and hot day.

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.
