7 Reasons Why Modern Sunscreen Outdoor Blinds are Better Than Wooden Blinds
1. Made of durable and lightweight material - The New Way outdoor blinds are made of high-quality fibreglass and PVC. This long-lasting material is specially designed for our typical weather conditions, so it is fireproof, waterproof, and windproof. This makes it a better choice compared to traditional blinds which are made of wood or bamboo material.
Wood, for example, can expand and contract with changes in moisture, which can lead to twisting, bending, or warping of the vanes – especially in low-quality wood blinds. This feature makes them an unsuitable choice, particularly in our tropical climate with high humidity levels. Wooden blinds are typically made to last one to three years, whereas the New Way outdoor blinds can last more than a decade, making them an excellent long-term investment for your home.
Wooden blinds are also notoriously heavy. They can be difficult to raise and lower when installed on a large window, and the stress on the inner cords can cause them to break prematurely. In comparison, the BlindsHub outdoor blinds are extremely lightweight, making them simple to operate. They also include stainless steel (rust-free even in extreme conditions) accessories (cables) that will not break under high wind pressure.
2. Aesthetically pleasing - Just because your blinds serve a functional purpose - keeping harsh sunlight out and providing privacy - doesn't mean they can't also look good. In fact, the right blinds can help to elevate your home’s overall look.
The BlindsHub outdoor blinds provide a modern, timeless, and stylish look that will help to enhance the exterior of your home. It is available in seven different colours, including dark grey and black (the most colour popular option). Using the colour customisation option, you can match your outdoor blind to your window frames, flooring, or other accents in your home.
3. Maximum privacy - Large windows are lovely, but they deprive you of privacy. While wooden blinds can provide a good solution for privacy, the New Way outdoor blinds can go above and beyond by allowing you to enjoy the outside view while still maintaining privacy.
4. Protection against the sun - The BlindsHub outdoor blinds are made of a sunscreen fibreglass material that helps to block heat from the sun, making them ideal for windows that receive a lot of direct sunlight. Because it prevents heat gain, your home's air conditioner/cooling unit does not have to work as hard to maintain a comfortable temperature. This means less power consumption and lower electricity bills!
5. Protection against the wind and rain - The BlindsHub outdoor blinds include two stainless steel acrylic-coated cables that hold the bottom aluminium bars in place and prevent the outdoor blind from swaying back and forth in the wind. Wooden blinds, on the other hand, aren't usually anchored to the ground, so they sway when it's windy.
Aside from wind protection, the BlindsHub outdoor blinds provide up to 90% rain protection, so you can rest assured that your interior will not get wet if it is shielded by the outdoor blind.
6. Protection against bugs and insects - The BlindsHub outdoor blinds have been specially designed to prevent insect penetration, allowing you to enjoy the outdoors without fear of mosquito bites.
7. Low maintenance - The BlindsHub outdoor blinds are made of materials that can be easily cleaned with a wet cloth. This ease of maintenance can cut hours from your house-cleaning routine, making them ideal for households that want to reduce cleaning time or don't want to spend hours cleaning their blinds!
On the contrary, wooden blinds, particularly those with darker stains, tend to show dust more readily than outdoor blinds, which require frequent dusting. Wooden blinds also tend to rot or become disfigured if they are not properly maintained. Therefore, treating them with protective products such as wood oil regularly is essential to keep them in good condition and increase their lifespan.
