Do Waterproof Outdoor Blinds Exist? Yes They Do.
Many people ask whether outdoor blinds are waterproof. The answer is yes if you’re using outdoor PVC blinds.
A café, patio and bistro outdoor blind made from a sheet of PVC will provide 100% protection from the rain, and wind for that matter.
An outdoor shade blind or shade mesh Alfresco blind is weatherproof with regards to the rain but offers superior shade and Sun protection. If any outside furniture is at least a metre away, even with extreme wind, the rain will end up as very fine mist as it travels through the fine woven mesh fabric.
If you’re looking for waterproof outdoor blinds to protect you and your outdoor furniture from 100% of the rain, you’ll be wanting to take a look at the PVC blind range from outdoor blind manufacturer Inviron Blinds Adelaide.
Unlike the cheap bistro or patio blind that is made using much cheaper laminated PVC, all outdoor PVC blinds manufactured by Inviron use heavy duty extruded PVC making them crystal clear to look through and will last many times longer than the DIY blind you’ll find from hardware shops or department stores.
There are advantages and disadvantages to both types of outdoor blinds Adelaide home owners can buy across Adelaide.
Outdoor PVC Blinds
The following table highlights the advantages and disadvantages associated with a blind made from a sheet of PVC material.
|Sun||Tinted PVC provides shade factor of 94.9||PVC blind material can make the area warmer on hot days|
|Wind||100% Windproof blind||Can get stuffy, No breeze on warm days|
