Sunblinds are a cost-effective product designed specifically for keeping heat from entering the window to cool the house. There is a large fabric range available to suite most aesthetics and they are easy to operate. Sun blinds can be applied to most windows and outdoor areas.

Here are some of the benefits that sunblinds can bring to your home lifestyle.

Weather Protection

We all know that Melbourne can have four seasons in one day. A1blinds sunblinds can protect your windows from wind, rain, sunlight and with our fire retardant canvas, fires.

Sunlight Blockout

You won’t have to worry about your furnishings getting sun damaged or colour fades.

Reduce Energy Bills

Sun blinds can help reduce your energy bills by reducing the heat from coming inside. They can also prevent the cold weather from coming in also. When you keep the blinds down over the summer the rooms stay cool and during winter they keep the warmth in. If you have outdoor spaces such as patios or verandas, blinds can help with reducing energy bills because you will be able to hang your laundry instead of using a clothes dryer.

Outdoor Room And Privacy

Another great benefit for outdoor sun blinds is that they can provide additional space and privacy. By adding blinds to your patio or veranda, it is like adding a new outdoor room to your home. We have sunscreen sunblinds that can still allow some natural light in with keeping your privacy or our traditional blinds that block out the sun %100.

Sunblind Fabric Choices

We have various types of sun blind fabric choices available that can be used in construction for your sun blinds Melbourne. Some fabrics blockout the sunlight 100% where others provide complete fire retardant features. When you speak with an A1 Blinds rep, they will go into detail to help you make the right choice for your home. To give you more of an idea, here are some of the options online that our sun blinds external come in.

We offer the traditional canvas material as well as nylon sunscreen and acrylics.

Canvas sunblinds

This material is a plain weave fabric and is made from around 52% cotton and 48% polyester. Sunblinds made with our canvas choice provide 100% blockout from the sun. This is a very versatile choice in regards to decoration because it is available in many colours and patterns.

Acrylic sunblind fabric

This type of sunblind is perfect for when you don’t want to blockout the natural sunlight completely. Acrylic is a synthetic fibre and is used in the making of sunblind awnings because it resists UV sunlight, mould, dampness, is water resistant and can stop warm air from coming through.

How to Clean SunBlinds

Cleaning your sunblinds is a simple process which you can do yourself quite easily. To clean your outdoor sunblinds you can follow the simple steps below or feel free to contact A1blinds customer service for more details.

Cleaning Canvas fabric blinds

For cleaning canvas sunblinds it is best to clean once or twice per month with cold water. You can use a soft bristled brush or soft broom for dirty areas.

If the sunblind has mildew, we recommend using 1 part bleach to three parts lukewarm water. Apply using a soft brush (do not scrub) and rinse off thoroughly after 15 minutes. Try to ensure that you do this when the outdoor temperature is less than 38 degrees.

Cleaning Acrylic Sunblinds

For cleaning your sunblinds made from the acrylic screen, we suggest using the following method. Use 1 cup of salt per 1 litre of water and a dash of clove oil. Use a soft cloth to gently wipe over the material.

Sunscreen Material (Nylon)

For cleaning your sunscreen sunblinds use ½ cup of mild detergent with ½ cup household bleach in five litres of water. use a soft cloth to gently wipe over the material.
