Are you thinking about installing some outdoor blinds in your entertaining area?
Read on for some in-depth information about café blinds and bistro blinds. You can also find out about our range and how our blinds can benefit your home.
What are café and bistro blinds?
Café blinds or bistro blinds are outdoor blinds that offer crisp, clear views without sacrificing protection.
Our café and bistro blinds are made from exclusive marine grade extruded PVC, which happens to be the best on the market!
It provides noticeably better optical clarity, strength and durability. It is also water-resistant and contains UV absorbents that help to block out harmful UV rays.
Extruded PVC is a single-film layer that is made from a semi-liquid resin that is pushed through a dye to the chosen thickness. Because it’s not pushed through so many rollers like other types of lesser quality PVC, there is less movement. This results in better optical clarity.
Other companies will use a calendared PVC made by rolling the mixture through a series of rollers to flatten out the film. Sheets will then be laminated together to create a thicker material which can affect the optical clarity.
Here at Australian Outdoor Living we offer Bella Crystal and Bella Bronze café and bistro blinds.
The Bella Crystal is a completely transparent PVC that provides clear and crisp views outside the blind.
The Bella Bronze range is exactly the same but comes with the added benefit of being tinted. This means it offers more shade and is slightly better at blocking out those UV rays.
It’s important to note that our café blinds and bistro blinds are exclusive to our Classic operating system.
How will café and bistro blinds benefit my home?
