What to look for when buying external roller blinds?

Protecting the interior from both sunlight and the eyes of passers-by is the main reason why we decide to install external roller shutters in our houses. This solution is also very popular due to the improvement of our security, as well as a significant impact on the amount of energy bills. Regardless of whether the roller shutters will be installed in a new building, or in the existing one, we have to decide on a specific type. But what should we pay special attention to when deciding to buy roller blinds?

Flush-mounted blinds

If we are considering installing external roller shutters, we should definitely be interested in recessed roller shutters, which are mounted in the lintel. However, this solution works perfectly only when we decide to build a house (it is worth considering this possibility already at the building design stage). When the concealed roller shutter is installed, it is covered with a finishing material such as clinker or plaster. Why is it worth choosing such a solution? Certainly due to the very good thermal and acoustic insulation, as well as considerable energy savings (depending on what fuel material was used in the building). As for the control mechanism of such blinds, it can be both manual,and electric, and the choice of the right one depends primarily on the size of our portfolio. The entire mechanism of the flush-mounted roller shutter is placed outside in a special control box, thanks to which the roller shutter is practically invisible inside a given room (not counting of course the control mechanism, which must be located by the window). Thanks to this solution, the servicing of the roller shutter can take place without disturbing the privacy of the household members, which is extremely important for most of us. Due to considerable technological progress, the roller blind can be successfully controlled by a phone or tablet, which is a great convenience these days, and therefore the interest in flush-mounted blinds is constantly growing.The entire mechanism of the flush-mounted roller shutter is placed outside in a special control box, thanks to which the roller shutter is practically invisible inside a given room (not counting of course the control mechanism, which must be located by the window).

Another type of external roller blinds are facade roller blinds, which are appreciated mainly due to their versatility. Why? For this reason, because they can be used not only in newly built houses, but also in existing ones. Such roller shutters are installed in a window recess or on a wall, so they do not require any interference with the building structure. Currently available facade blinds are available in stores in two options, namely with a semicircular box and left-handed assembly and with a box that is cut at a 45-degree angle and both left-handed and right-handed assembly.

Roller shutter functions

When buying an external roller shutter, we should first of all consider the functions of such a solution. But what are we talking about? About whether they are to be, for example, manually or automatically controlled (such shutters are usually controlled with a wall switch or remote control, which is quite a convenience). We install roller shutters primarily in order to protect the room against sunlight and to save energy, but we should not forget about safety issues. Another important issue that should be taken into account when purchasing roller shutters is the quality of workmanship and the type of materials used. After all, it is important that the roller blind serves the household members well for many years. Repairs can be quite expensive, so it’s better to avoid them by choosing a model,which shouldn’t cost too little. The last important issue is, of course, the aesthetic value, because the roller shutter should perfectly harmonize with the entire building, creating one whole. Therefore, it is worth ensuring that the color of the roller blind matches the color of the facade, but it should not blend in with it (contrasting colors can give the building a completely different character, but you should not overdo it in this direction).

 

External blinds They have been enjoying unflagging popularity for many years, but it is not surprising, because unlike the internal ones, they allow you to save a lot of energy, and also provide an appropriate level of security. It is also very important that they protect the interior not only from sunlight, but also from the prying eyes of passers-by. Currently, there are two types of external roller shutters available in stores, namely flush-mounted roller shutters and facade roller shutters. Both solutions have quite a lot of advantages, but as mentioned above, flush-mounted roller shutters can only be installed in newly constructed buildings, so their use should be considered at the house design stage. If we decide to install roller shutters in an already existing building, it is best if we choose facade roller shutters,which are as good as the flush-mounted ones, because they provide us with the same level of security, as well as energy savings and protection against sunlight.
