External Conservatory Blinds

  • Overview
  • Product Information
  • Fabrics

Exterior Blinds for rectangular glazing, either as a standalone shading solution, or in conjunction with internal blinds.

The Patio Awnings Specialist Division of Conservatory Blinds Limited has 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.

Customer Reviews


Congratulations on a first class job. You were the only company out of the six I tried that would accept an order for just half of my conservatory roof.

The result was astounding and what a difference it has made to the glare and heat from the sun on the problem half. Your technician Gareth was excellent in both measuring and fitting a most awkward corner panel. I would certainly recommend you to my village friends.

Many thanks. A job well done!!!
