Sunscreen Mesh Blinds

You may have heard the name sunscreen mesh blinds before. This is simply another name used. The fabric used to make the blinds is woven. It leaves very tiny open holes. This type of fabric can also be referred to as mesh.

What Is a Sunscreen Blind?

A sunscreen blind is a type of blind that has an open weave fabric and is used to cover windows in your home or office. Sunscreen blinds are also referred to as sunscreen roller blinds, mesh blinds or indoor sunscreen blinds. They are an excellent option in Melbourne if you are looking for privacy, UV and heat protection during the day. They have a beautiful and modern look about them. Sunscreen materials are made from a combination of PVC and Polyester. As an open weave they create a one-way vision allowing seeing out during the day, but not in during the night and visa-versa. Sunscreen roller blinds offer an affordable yet modern solution to both heat and light control and privacy.

With a side chain to operate the blinds up or down they are very easy to operate. (Motorisation also available)
Rather than rating in terms of blockout, sunscreen roller blinds are rated in terms of openness and will vary between 3% openness to 7% openness. Openness describes the amount of light and vision available.

Why Choose Sunscreen Roller blinds?

Size Guide

Sunscreen blinds are made to measure; therefore we cannot provide exact specifications and pricing online. Once an appointment has been made with one of the A1blinds reps in Melbourne. They will run through the sizing options available with you. There is a restriction on sizes blinds can be made. This is mainly due to the sizes of the material and this varies between ranges and suppliers.

Types of Sunscreen Blind Operations Available

For ease of use, today’s sunscreen roller blinds are usually operated with a rotation chain. We also offer motorisation, which is an excellent option for high or hard to reach windows. If you want to match old blinds, we still have the old-fashioned spring operation available. There are five different choices available for sunscreen roller blind operations. The most popular is the chain operation, due to the ease of use and minimal complication. That being said each operation serves a purpose and we have all these available for you.

Standard Chain operation

A plastic or metal (stainless steel) chain is fitted at either end of the blinds called the rotation chain. By pulling down on either the front or the back of the chain allows the blinds to be raised or lowered.

Linked

Having a linked blinds operation method means more than one blind in a row, whereby they’re on the same control mechanism. Linking reduces the gaps between blinds from 35mm to 20mm.

Dual Blinds

Where privacy can be a problem or greater protection from the sun is needed use our dual option. This option allows a block-out blind to be installed with the Sunscreen Blind. This is where both blockout and Sunscreen blinds are installed onto a common bracket which allows the blockout blinds to be pulled down when privacy and light block is required and the sunscreen to be pulled down when only privacy is required.

Spring operation

The spring operation sunscreen roller blind if considered very old school and hardly used. The blind is under tension, to operate, the blind is pulled down by hand, once at the right height hold, slightly release the pressure and the spring will lock into position. To lift, pull down slightly to release the locking mechanism and the tension will automatically want to lift the blinds. Continue holding the base until it’s lifted to the desired height.

Motorisation

For ease and simplicity of use, motorise your blind. A1 Blinds motorised sunscreen blinds are wired by our “A” grade electricians. They come with a certification that is your guarantee all workmanship complies with Australian standards. They come with an options switch, remote or wifi. We use only Somfy motors, Somfy are a French company with a reputation as one of the best manufacturers of Blinds & Awning motors around the world. All our quotes include the electrician (Most companies don’t and consumers have to find their own electrician).

Roller Blinds are still one of the most practical and value for money window coverings available today.
