Whether you’re a local or a regular visitor (hello to all the politicians!) you’ll know it can get pretty cold here in Canberra in winter, with highs of around 11 degrees Celsius and lows around or below zero. Which is why you need to be pretty tough to use your outdoor living area during winter, or get some Canberra café blinds installed!
Not just any old café blinds, mind you. While all outdoor blinds will help to keep the heat in your Canberra outdoor living area, PVC café blinds will be your best choice. Not just any old PVC Canberra café blinds, however, but dimensionally stable PVC café blinds.
Let’s explain why.
The advantages of Canberra café blinds made from PVC
While most outdoor blinds will help to keep the heat inside your Canberra outdoor living area, PVC café blinds do an even better job. They provide a thin but solid barrier against cold winds, rain and other elements. This means that your outdoor living area will stay warmer during the colder weather.
In addition, if you have outdoor heating installed, Canberra café blinds will help to keep the heat inside your outdoor living area where you need it. You’ll be warm as toast in no time and enjoying your outdoor living area all year round.
The advantages of Canberra café blinds made from dimensionally stable PVC
While traditional café blinds are great, Canberra café blinds made from dimensionally stable PVC are even better.
Perhaps the best way to explain the difference is to have a look at the image at the bottom of this post, which shows a set of PVC blinds made the traditional way and another set made from stable PVC. The dimensionally stable PVC Canberra café blinds provide a taut finish from day one, rather than allowing for estimated expansion and contraction. This helps to eliminate the wrinkles that are common with traditional PVC blinds, so your blinds look better and do an even better job of sealing your outdoor living area.
Dimensionally stable PVC café blinds are:
- UV stabilised
- Made from a non-stick formulation (SLS)
- High clarity
- Excellent at blocking solar radiation; in fact they block around 93% of UV solar radiation
- Supported with a 2 year UV warranty
Plus, like other outdoor blinds, when the weather is nice you can simply retract the blinds to suit your needs.
The dimensionally stable PVC Canberra café blinds featured with this post were installed in Crace, ACT, using a Ziptrak track guided blind system. Rather than rolling them up manually, which can be time-consuming and tricky, the Ziptrak system, as the name suggests, means the blinds are guided up and down a track. This makes them very easy to operate and allows you to have the café blinds partly open if you want. You can even have the added advantage of remote control operation.
