Can I use Widescreen as a break against heavy winds?
External blinds are not designed to endure heavy winds. We recommend blinds to be drawn and secured during heavy winds and storms. Consult your Widescreen supplier for further details.
Can Widescreen be used if the area is out of square?
Widescreen features side adjustment channels which can help mitigate installation issues in unaligned/out of square areas. Contact your closest Widescreen supplier for their measure and quote service.
How do I care for my Widescreen?
We recommend regular cleaning, at least every 3 months. Use a soft brush to clean the blind. Aluminium extrusions can be cleaned with a soft cloth and warm soapy water or a small amount of mild detergent if required. Once cleaned apply silicone spray to the side guide grooves, contact your closest Widescreen supplier to purchase the correct silicone product. Widescreen side guides are cleverly designed to allow dirt, dust or grime to exit at the bottom when cleaned.
How does the hi-performance side fastening system work?
The fastener is welded onto the fabric and fed into the side rails, allowing it to be securely guided up and down in operation. This hi-performance fastening system provides the stability and protection needed in retention blinds. Widescreen’s side fastener system is the strongest and most flexible on the market.
How large can Widescreen be made?
Your external roller blinds can expand to a total area of 18 sqm. The maximum possible width is 6.6 metres and maximum drop is 3.4 metres. If your area is larger than this, please consult with a Widescreen professional for further advice.
What colours are available?
The hardware can be custom colour-matched to suit your existing outdoor decor. The Hi- Performance Fabric colours and styles selection is extensive, for a complete fabric selection please consult your Widescreen supplier.
Why use an external Widescreen?
External blinds create a comfortable outdoor area in any season, whether you want to stay cool on hot summer days, trap the heat in the cooler months, or simply create a barrier to protect you from insects and inclement weather. Importantly, these all-weather blinds help minimise your reliance on heating and cooling by helping maintain a comfortable temperature in the sectioned off area. This means that you can reduce your energy consumption whilst helping the environment.
Where can I use Widescreen blinds?
The most common use is as outdoor patio blinds. They are easily installed on verandas, balconies and other outdoor entertaining areas, and even as pergola blinds. Increasingly Widescreen is being used as an outdoor window covering providing a stylish alternative to outdoor shutters or awnings. This prevents sun heat from ever reaching the window pane, which helps with maintaining a cooler indoor temperature.
