External Conservatory Blinds
Exterior Blinds for rectangular glazing, either as a standalone shading solution, or in conjunction with internal blinds.
Our specialist external shading division has its own web site at UK Awnings, with more than 13 years’ experience in providing Britain’s highest quality patio awnings and exterior blinds.
External blinds will always provide a higher degree of simple shade than internal blinds as they block the sun's solar energy before it can transmit through the glass roof.
The disadvantages of external blinds are that they tend to make the conservatory darker, still allow the sun to enter the conservatory at a low angle, because they are not fitted snugly over the glass, and they are reliant upon it not being too windy or wet – as they need to be retracted if it is very windy or pouring with rain.
External roof blinds are normally fitted on short legs above a glazed roof where there is no opening vent to clash with the blind. These blinds are motorised and require a wind-sensor to retract the roof blind when it becomes windy.
External window blinds are fitted over windows and doors that do not open outwards, with a unique zip construction that ensures the fabric stays within the side channels, maling them highly weather resistant.
For a true all-weather solution, our Special Projects Team also offer a unique freestanding weatherproof pod with optional side screens, creating a true all-weather shading structure.
