About Our Conservatory Roof Blinds

Very often, our prospective customers are not maximising the use of this space because of a temperature issue, being too hot or too cold, or privacy issues – particularly at night. Installing conservatory roof blinds has many advantages, the most prominent and often necessary of which is keeping you cool in the summer. If your garden is facing in any other direction than North, the temperature in the conservatory can become unbearably hot from Easter time through to Autumn in the UK! By choosing a high-tech fabric specifically designed for conservatory roof blinds, you will achieve an easy, long lasting and effective temperature controlling solution.

Conservatory Roof Blinds For Privacy

In built up areas, conservatory roof blinds will also help maintain your privacy, especially if upstairs flats or nearby neighbours are able to look down on you from their first or higher floor windows. At night specifically, conservatory roof blinds will transform your room and provide additional perceived security by concealing your possessions from opportunists. In London, this is often the case with many new extensions that incorporate roof lights or Velux windows.

 

Conservatory Roof Blinds For Light and Heat Control

Conservatory roof blinds also control light and heat very effectively. On sunny days, opening just one blind will let in a huge amount of light and at the same time, provide shading and cooling. Things that were previously impossible such as reading, or watching a computer or tv screen, are made possible through conservatory roof blinds. Additionally, in contrast to keeping you cool in the Summer, our range of energy saving high-tech fabrics prevent heat loss in Winter, saving you energy and also saving you money. These special fabrics are available in the following ranges; pleated conservatory blinds, and roller conservatory blinds.

Motorised Conservatory Roof Blinds

As the cost of technology decreases, motorisation of conservatory roof blinds is now a realistic and affordable proposition for many. Motorisation allows hands free operation from the comfort of your own chair, in zones, altogether or individually as you wish. Motorised conservatory roof blinds all require a mains electrical supply at the moment, although at limited sizes, window and conservatory roof blinds can now be battery powered! As technology improves, modern batteries and solar powered charging are changing the way we motorise.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are the different types of conservatory roof blinds?

    Owing to the often-complex shapes of conservatory roof panels, most conservatory roof blinds are pleated. This is because we can cut and make this style of blind into any triangular shape required. It is a skilled job to both survey and manufacture these blinds and something that we have done at Blind Technique for many years.  If you have a rectangular opening that contains a roof lantern or flat skylight window then, as well as pleated, you can opt for a roller zip blind. This type of blind is like a horizontal roller blind and has side zip channels that support the fabric and also provide a good level of dimout, fabric choice depending.

  • What are the benefits of conservatory roof blinds?

    The main benefits of having conservatory roof blinds in your home are that they help to prevent your conservatory from becoming too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. Particularly in the winter, preventing heat from escaping and preventing cold from coming into your home can save you significant amounts of energy and therefore, money. Additionally, conservatory roof blinds really help with privacy and security, especially from nearby neighbours or if you have expensive possessions in your conservatory. Not to mention, they look great and can easily be adapted to the style of your home!

  • How do you clean conservatory roof blinds?

    Every week or two weeks, take a duster and run it all over your conservatory roof blinds. This will help to remove any dust or animal hairs, preventing them from building up over time. If you feel that your blinds need more of a clean, take a damp sponge and dip it into a mixture of mild soap and warm water. Gently wipe each of the blinds, making sure that you leave them hanging down until they are fully dry. It is best to do this in the summer months, as they will dry much quicker.

  • What fabrics are available for conservatory roof blinds?

    The two main ranges of conservatory roof blinds fabrics that we offer are Louvolite and Eclipse. Both of these fabrics help with light and temperature control, with the temperature element being particularly important for conservatories.  Louvolite offers pleated and roller conservatory roof blind fabrics that are scientifically tested to control temperature, as well as having a range of different options to suit any style or taste. Eclipse solely offers pleated conservatory roof blind fabrics with properties including blackout, fire resistance and wipe clean.  All of our fabrics are available to view in our showroom or if you would like to see them in your own home, book an appointment with one of our sales team who will bring plenty of samples along with them.

  • How long do conservatory roof blinds last?

    The longevity of your conservatory roof blinds will depend on a few factors. Firstly, if you care for the blinds properly, remove dust and give them a deep clean every so often, they will stay looking great for longer. Also, if your conservatory roof blinds are exposed to a significant amount of heat, this could mean they have a slightly shorter lifespan.  We would also recommend operating your conservatory roof blinds regularly and also leaving them open around once a week so that the fabric memory is maintained.

  • REALLY impressed by every aspect of our order with Blind Technique. The staff were, without exception, readily accessible (a big plus these days), friendly, engaged, and professional. We knew what was going on at every stage and the final outcome is superb; the plantation blinds look and feel well made and have added very positively to the look of the front of our house.
