Benefits of automating your external Venetian blinds
External Venetian blinds that are motorised or automated are in high demand because they provide much more than convenience at your fingertips. The automation functionality transforms the entire experience of having external blinds. Much like your internal window furnishings, your external blinds can be controlled using Somfy remote controls or your home automation system. It’s very easy to adjust the position of your motorised Venetian blades. Automation gives you the control you need to reduce glare, maintain your view or increase your privacy.
Manual outdoor blinds do require a level of physical strength to open and close, making automated blinds a necessity for those who have difficulty reaching or are unable to perform this task. There is no hard labour involved if your outdoor Venetian blinds are motorised and when they are programmed with your home automation system, they can operate independently or on a timer. If you have an outdoor entertainment area with a retractable roof system, such as a folding arm awning, that too can be automated to operate at the touch of a button or timer for ultimate ease and peace of mind.
Do external Venetian Blinds reduce heat?
Top-fixed or face-fixed external Venetian blinds
This blind is mounted on the front of the window on your facade. The major advantage lies in the prevention of thermal bridges (higher heat transfer). While all our outdoor Venetian blinds reduce heat, the face-fixed blind offers the most heat reduction.
If you are unsure of which type of blind is ideal for your premises, we can assist you. With years of experience under our belt, we can work closely with you or your design team to meet your requirements.
What to expect from the installation process
As with any type of renovation or new building construction, effective planning is vital for success. The same process applies when it comes to installing external Venetian blinds. Whether you are building or renovating, the installation process will be planned in close consultation with your architect, designer and builder contracted to complete the project. Site access is an important factor to be considered especially if installations are required on upper floors. In many cases, there’s a need for scaffolding, which can often be coordinated with other trades during your construction or renovation. With planning and organisation, the installation of your external blinds can be coordinated to run smoothly, without causing an inconvenience or delay.
Design solutions from SOM Blinds
With careful planning, your Venetians can be installed in a way that integrates with your home’s facade. This will allow you to create a modern, streamlined finish. You can expect the same quality of service from us when we tend to your indoor blinds too, such as plantation shutters and curtains and Roman blinds. We consult closely with the professionals involved in your project, such as your architect or building designer to discuss the most effective ways to include your chosen window furnishings into your design, whether for internal or external use.
