Dual Roller Blinds

Dual Roller Blinds
Double or dual roller blinds are essentially two different blind materials independently set on the same window bracket and are perfect for people looking to achieve both style and function for their rooms. These separate fabrics allow you have a specific sunscreen blind, which can be brought down in the day to control sunlight and another fabric, which can be lowered during other times. Double roller blinds are typically made from sheer and block-out fabrics, allowing you the dual function of blocking out the sun completely or letting in some natural light.

Shutter

Shutters provide air circulation and ventilation
Open louvre blades on plantation shutters allow air to circulate easily within your home, providing good ventilation. The added bonus with shutters is that there is no material to billow out into your room and knock ornaments or decorations over, and as the plantation shutters can be left shut even when the louvers are open your privacy can be maintained.
You can always add a lock to the plantation shutters if they are being used in a child’s room so that a window can be left open, but ensure your child remains safe as they are unable to access the open window.

 

Panel Blinds

Panel Blinds
Panel Blinds are highly versatile choices for any home because they can be used for small and large doors or windows based on what you desire. They are not only artistically pleasing, but they also serve as a functional choice for any room in your home – offering a natural and sophisticated finish.

Panel glide blinds are ideal for large windows or sliding doors and are often used instead of vertical blinds. The panels slide through several tracking channels and stack behind each other when opened and form a complete screen when closed. They can be operated with an operating wand or a cord-operated mechanism. Motorisation of panel glide blinds offers the ultimate convenience of use to the home owner, apart from providing privacy and light filtering as required.

Roman Blinds

Roman Blinds

Combating UV Rays with Sunscreen Blinds

The importance of sun safety is something we learn from a very young age. We all know what to do to minimise dangerous UV ray exposure at the beach or the park, but few people realise the risk of UV exposure inside their own homes and offices. In this article, we’ll explain what UV rays are and the benefits of installing protective window coverings in your home.

What Are UV Rays?

Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is produced by the sun and can be recreated by some artificial sources, such as solariums. The invisible rays of radiation travel through our atmosphere although most are blocked from entering by protective gases such as the Ozone layer.

There are occasions when more UV waves travel through our atmosphere and become harmful, causing sunburn, premature ageing, eye damage and skin damage that can potentially lead to skin cancer. Because we cannot see UV rays, it is impossible to know if they are damaging our skin until it is too late.

Scientists have created an index to measure the incoming waves and assist people in protecting themselves. To see what the day’s UV index is, consult your usual weather source and make sun-smart decisions from there.

Ultraviolet radiation is also the best natural source of Vitamin D so it is imperative to have a healthy balance of protection and exposure to minimise damage without depriving your body of what it needs.

Avoiding UV Damage in Your Home or Office

It’s a common misconception to think that outdoor workers are the only ones at risk of sun exposure. Recent studies have shown that surprising and excessive skin damage often occurs in office workers with unprotected windows, including wrinkles, darkened spots, and sagging skin.

If you spend extensive amounts of time near an uncovered window, you are putting yourself at risk of incredibly harmful sun damage.

Besides being extremely detrimental to yourself and your family, UV exposure fades furniture, damages walls and drives up the cost of energy in your home.

Due to the lack of accessible information, a lot of people think ordinary window glass is completely resistant to UV rays. Window glass can block intense UVB rays but not UVA rays – these are less damaging but are a much more common occurrence, making up 95% of the planet’s UV exposure.

To deflect UV rays, fade-resistant sunscreen blinds are becoming increasingly popular in Auckland as a stylish and effective installation.

Sunscreen Blinds for UV Protection

Sunscreen roller blinds are designed to provide protection from the sun’s rays and heat. New technology means fabrics for roller sunscreen blinds can effectively manage glare and heat in your home or office.

You can also have a blind completely down while enjoying your views – removing the claustrophobic feeling of a shut-off room when a block out blind is in use.

There is also an option for day/night brackets where two blinds are installed on one window – the sunscreen roller blind is positioned closest to the window with an additional block out blind for privacy at night.
