When choosing the right Sunblinds for your Melbourne home. You may want to consider the way in which you want to open and close the blind. There is no right, or wrong method and our sales rep will definitely inform and assist you in making the right choice for your needs. See the list below to get a better understanding of the different Sunblind operations available here at A1 Blinds.
All traditional Sunblinds for outside are supported by side arms & guides. They are installed with guide rods and connecting arms and have a spring installed into the top tube to keep tension. The outdoor sun blinds can then be pulled down manually. The arms will lock into position.
This type of operation is great because of the ease and simplicity. Motorisation is ideally suited for difficult to get to, high or large windows. We offer either wall switch or remote control, Smart phone and voice activation. Our ‘A’ grade electricians ensure all blinds are wired in accordance with Australian regulations. All our motorised blinds are fitted with Somfy motors, world leaders in blind motorisation and home automation.
This type of blind operation is a fully manual operation which uses a crank handle to wind the sun blind up and down. It can be used with zinc coated steel guides, wire guides (stainless steel cable) or fixed down at the bottom with straps and dog clips. Crank Sunblinds can be used on many different applications and are a terrific option allowing an efficient and effortless way to operate a blind, especially large blinds.
Wire Guide Sunblinds
This option is available in crank or motorised and gives a clear unobtrusive look to compliment your home. The tradional 12mm zinc coated guides are replaced with a 3.0mm stainless steel (316) cable.
