We strive to provide customers with the BEST and HONEST advice on outdoor blind fabrics.
<strong>We DO NOT recommend using PVC/Clear plastic</strong> for your outdoor blinds area or cafe for the following reasons:
<li>plastic puckers and stretches - No clear window effect as customers would hope from the moment it is installed;</li>
<li>creates a sail effect during high winds; and</li>
<li>traps heat, similar to a Green house;<img class="size-medium wp-image-3399 alignright" src="http://topspotblinds.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/PVC-blinds-Damaged-300x169.jpg" alt="" width="300" height="169" /></li>
<li>the plastic yellows, clouds up and stains with heat exposure;</li>
<li>When rolled up after its been raining or during periods of rain, water builds up within the roll and over time damages the plastic;</li>
<li>We are all time poor, to care for your PVC outdoor blinds involves a lot of maintenance, frequent cleaning, drying etc.</li>
<strong>Alternatively we recommend</strong> using a MESH outdoor blind fabric .
<li>The Mesh blind allows you to maintain <img class="alignnone size-medium wp-image-3020 alignright" src="http://topspotblinds.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Alfresco_Blinds_Watsonia_Greensborough-300x225.jpg" alt="" width="300" height="225" /> <img class="alignnone size-medium wp-image-3019 alignright" src="http://topspotblinds.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Alfresco_Blinds_Point_Cook-300x225.jpg" alt="" width="300" height="225" />your view, even when the blinds are fully wound down.</li>
<li>The pinholes in the woven mesh fabric filters heat and light so that air flow is still able to pass through, keeping the interior cool by preventing stale hot air from becoming trapped.</li>
<li>Depending on how tight the weave is in the mesh fabric is, will determine how much rain filters in or bounces off the mesh.</li>
<li>We have a good range of modern and traditional fabric colours to choose from</li>
All external blinds, including Alfresco Blinds are not designed to endure VERY HEAVY winds. We recommend blinds to be drawn as well as secured during heavy winds and storms.
We then recommend regular cleaning (at least every 3 months) to ensure surfaces are free from dirt, dust and grime.
Use a soft brush or broom to clean the blinds.
