Outdoor bistro blinds offer many benefits, including weather protection for your home and outdoor entertaining area. Installing bistro blinds in your home can be incredibly beneficial \u2013 not just for your social life, but for the health of your outdoor area as well. Bistro blinds protect your outdoor space from the weather and prevent wind, rain, and harmful UV rays from damaging your outdoor furniture. Best of all, because they protect you from the weather, you can entertain friends and family outdoors all year round! Bistro blinds will protect your outdoor space from the worst of the weather. What are bistro blinds? Bistro blinds are transparent outdoor blinds that offer crisp, clear views while still protecting you from the worst of the weather. Australian Outdoor Living\u2019s custom-made bistro blinds are made with marine grade extruded PVC, which provides top of the line optical clarity, strength, and durability. It is also resistant to water and does a great job of protecting you from those harmful UV rays. Extruded PVC is a single-film layer made from a semi-liquid resin that is pushed through rollers to achieve its required thickness. This process has been perfected at Australian Outdoor Living, which eliminates the need to push the resin through so many rollers and results in a better optical clarity. How do bistro blinds work? Wet weather can have a seriously negative effect on your outdoor space. Dampness can rot wood and corrode metal, and if you\u2019ve ever left your al fresco sofa cushions outside on a rainy day, you\u2019ll have seen how mould can flourish. It\u2019s not just the wet, either. UV rays, the same ones we protect ourselves from with sunscreen, can fade colour on plastics and cotton. Intense heat can also split wood and weaken plastic. Bistro blinds can protect you from the sun's harmful UV rays. Bistro blinds work by preventing the worst of the weather from reaching your outdoor entertaining area. When lowered, they block a significant amount of wind and rain from hitting your furniture. This not only protects it but also allows you to enjoy the outdoors for longer. Australian Outdoor Living\u2019s bistro blinds also provide a high level of UV protection. This will protect your outdoor furniture and prevent its colour from fading. They\u2019re also made of a UV-resistant polymer, making them resistant to sun damage themselves. We\u2019ve designed our bistro blinds with the Australian climate in mind, ensuring they\u2019ll protect you and your furniture from the weather for years to come.
