Keep Your Conservatory Quiet During The Rain

How Do I Keep My Conservatory Quiet During Rainy Weather?

Duette® Thermal Roof Blinds
Posted: 25 Sep 2012

As you may have noticed, Autumn is well and truly here, with strong winds and rain across the UK and more expected to come. If you own a conservatory you may also have noticed that the rain can make it a very noisy room, especially if you have a polycarbonate roof.

Conservatory Blinds, when properly fitted by experts, are an excellent way of reducing the noise and keeping your conservatory a useable room in any weather. This is especially important for customers who use their conservatory as a living space to watch the television. This is because, the noise from the rain can be a big annoyance when trying to relax on the sofa.

Just as the blinds insulate your conservatory from heat, they also insulate it from sound. In the same way the fabric of the blind reflects or absorbs the heat, it also reflects and absorbs the sound created by your conservatory roof.

Different blind types and fabrics have different levels of effectiveness…

Duette® Pleated Blinds

Duette® Pleated Blinds are our most effective product for reducing noise. This is because, the blind has a unique cellular honeycomb construction, meaning they have two layers of fabric which helps to reduce noise. Compared to pure Pleated Blinds and pure Pinoleum Blinds which only have one layer of fabric. However, both these blind types are still effective at reducing the noise of rain on your conservatory roof. This is because, they still offer a layer of protection from the sound.

Obviously, the exact effectiveness of the blinds is dependent on the specific conservatory, but there will always be some reduction of noise when blinds are installed.

Duette® pleated blinds are available with translucent, opaque or full blackout fabrics. Their unique structure also means there are no cording holes, so all the wires are hidden in the fabric.

Prevent a noisy conservatory …

A recent customer experience this first-hand as they explained in their review:

”We have been so happy with our blinds. They are keeping us cool in the sun and warmer when it’s cold. We have also been very pleased with the reduction in roof noise from rain and birds – a very happy finding for us.We decided to arrange for 3 companies to come and quote for the conservatory blinds – the other 2 quite well known. Without a doubt your quote and product were by far the best. We are very pleased with the way the blinds stay flat when they’re pulled up; amazingly people often don’t even notice we’ve had blinds fitted! They notice, however, when we pull them down and they are very impressed – so are we. ” Mr & Mrs P
