Retractable blinds have many benefits, but their first impression is the style that they can bring to your home in Melbourne. External window shades are available in a wide variety of styles, from a gearbox or motor operation to a sprung loaded top tube with a rope and pulley or a pull stick system. A motorised blind can also be fitted with a sensor or can be radio controlled. When fitting retractable blinds upstairs, we can install a rope and pulley system which is operated from the inside, or a motorised option.
Imagine pushing a button or flipping a switch and watching as your external window shades and retractable blinds roll up and down, conveniently shading you from the sun, providing privacy when you want it or allowing light to enter as you wish.
During the warmer months, external window shades protect houses from getting too hot. If the sun hits the glass, it will transfer that heat into the house even if the inside curtains or blinds are closed, so preventing the sun’s rays from reaching the glass with external blinds is the best solution. Installing external window shades will keep you cool throughout the summer.
As well as the cooling effect, external window shades also protect the interior of your home from the sun’s harmful UV rays that can damage curtains, furnishings and fade the wooden flooring of your Melbourne home. External blinds also help reduce your energy costs and carbon footprint, as cooling from your air conditioner will be minimal.
Retractable blinds are custom made and come in various designs, shapes, and sizes. Components come in anodised, powder coated or stainless-steel arms and weather box. The arms come in different lengths that enable you to still use your windows. With a range of different operation types, and a wide variety of fabrics and colours, there are retractable blinds to suit everyone.
